A delightful holiday cottage located in the village of Blythburgh just inland from Southwold on the Heritage Coast of north-east Suffolk.
Chantry Cottage is ideal retreat for couples, families, walkers, music lovers and bird watchers. Well behaved dogs and children are welcome.
Blythburgh, set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty just inland from Southwold Dunwich and Walberswick, is close to the RSPB’s Minsmere nature reserve, which was the location for BBC Springwatch.
It is the starting point for numerous walks along the coast or inland along the River Blyth to Wenhaston and Halesworth and is convenient for music lovers attending the Latitude Festival at Henham Hall and the Aldeburgh Festival.
The White Hart, just a few minutes walk from the cottage, serves home cooked meals. Chantry Cottage combines charm and character with comfort and convenience.
The lounge has a wood burning stove, and there is a dining room and separate kitchen. Just installed are upgraded, bespoke wooden windows for added comfort. The two upstairs bedrooms enjoy views over the pretty cottage garden, towards the Church and the Blyth Estuary.
To the front of the garden there is a gravel which provides off road parking for two cars and a good sized South facing garden with a small terrace and seating area. The garden is very private and not overlooked.
What a charming cottage and what fab views too! We had a lovely time and hope to return.

A charming and tranquil cottage with a truly memorable view of Blythburgh church. Also a great base to explore a part of England we didn't know at all. What a lovely county Suffolk is.

Blythburgh village stands within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The tidal section of the River Blyth flows just to the north of the village on its way out to the sea at Southwold Harbour. Over the years the sea-walls have been breached and the land not reclaimed, creating a tidal lagoon, Blythburgh Water, which is visited by many mud-loving birds.
The village is bisected by the A12 road which is carried by an important road bridge over the River Blyth. Roads radiate in all directions from Blythburgh and the immediate area. This means Blythburgh is an excellent location, well placed to access the inland and coastal delights of this part of Suffolk.
