The Experience

This picturesque, terraced, late-Georgian house, sitting in the heart of the beautiful village of Wenhaston, is an ideal retreat, particularly for walkers, music lovers and bird watchers.

Flint Cottage combines charm and character with comfort and convenience.

The cosy sitting room features a wood burning stove while the light and airy double bedroom upstairs overlooks the property’s pretty patio garden.

Wenhaston, set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, inland from Southwold, Dunwich and Walberswick, is close to the RSPB’s Minsmere nature reserve – the location of BBC Springwatch.

Wenhaston is the starting point for numerous walks along the coast or inland along the River Blyth to Halesworth and Blythburgh and is convenient for music lovers attending the Latitude Festival at Henham Hall and the Aldeburgh Festival and Snape Proms.

Located opposite the cottage is the fine medieval church of St Peters, a church famous for the Wenhaston Doom, a superb medieval painting depicting the Biblical Day of Judgement.

Flint Cottage is in the pretty village of Wenhaston, within easy reach of Southwold, Walberswick, Dunwich and the RSPB Minsmere Bird Reserve. Just a few minutes walk away is the local pub The Star which serves excellent food and drink, in the other direction is The Queens Head a lovely thatched pub a good ten minute walk.
