Dennington Cottage, IP13 8JF
A little path takes you through a gate and into the courtyard where you’ll find the stable door opening into the large, light, airy and well-equipped kitchen; a great space to prepare meals at home. You’re sure to enjoy relaxing in the living/dining room beyond, with open fire and generous sofas for cosy evenings. Originally a bookshop, the additional ground floor room can be used as a bedroom with comfy day bed and en suite shower, or simply as a reading room with memories of a bygone era!

Cottage is in a convenient position for exploring the Suffolk coast and countryside or, simply, chilling and making the most of facilities in Dennington with the occasional duck waddling past! The courtyard is fully enclosed with a high wall, perfectly secure for children and dogs.
There are a couple of steps up to the stable door which opens directly into the spacious kitchen, wrapping round and up a step into the living/dining room.
