A cosy holiday cottage full of character and ideal just for two located in beautiful Wenhaston in rural Suffolk not far from Southwold and the Suffolk Heritage coast.

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.
