Station Cottage in the village of Saxmundham, close to Aldeburgh and the Suffolk Coast is a much-loved and tastefully decorated, welcoming holiday home.
Built in 1875 as two cottages but always used as one house, Station Cottage is a wonderful, cosy property with two of everything: two front doors, two back doors, two staircases, two sitting rooms (one with open fire-place and one with piano) not forgetting two gardens.
A large accommodating kitchen leads straight into the secluded back garden (with sandpit, table tennis, chairs and tables) and overlooks the front garden, lawn and climbing frame.
This is a peaceful and safe haven for families with small children or a refuge for adults to escape too, located on the outskirts of Saxmundham, one of Suffolk’s more charming market towns.
Overlooking the railway line, children love this property for the excitement of train watching, with the bonus that this is rural Suffolk, so in reality the trains are few and far between!
Both Waitrose & Tescos are a five-minute walk away in the town which also has fun shops and cafes to explore. For older children there is a huge, grassy Memorial ground on the other side of the road as well as a wonderful playground in the nearby campsite.
Suffolk’s sunshine coast is closest at Aldeburgh, 7 miles away, and Southwold with its sandy beach, world famous pier and beach huts is only 25 minutes away by car.
Lovely stay and everything is spotless in this cosy cottage, location was great and we would love to come back.

Saxmundham is a charming Market Town on the Suffolk Coast, it’s a real working town with a busy high street offering great access by rail and road to many of the nearby ‘must see’ places to visit along the coast.
The town boasts a number of cafés, pubs and restaurants along with a diverse selection of independent shops, plus the area’s only Waitrose supermarket! On Wednesdays there is a small traditional market, with a variety of food and other stalls.
Aldeburgh remains an artistic and literary centre as well as a popular destination for holiday makers and sailors. Famous for many things – good food, great fish & chips, Aldeburgh Music, Maggi Hamblings’ Scallop on the Beach being just a few.
