The Horseshoes is a charming early 1700s Suffolk cottage ten minutes drive to Southwold beach. Set in an extensive garden it has a beautifully situated meadow (alongside the property's ancient orchard) where the grass is mown to create your own private cricket pitch with pavilion included! It is surrounded by farm land with footpaths leading you on excellent walks or cycle routes. The cottage is oak beamed throughout with some low beams and doors reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland doors. The property offers ample space to suit a large family or a couple of families with plenty of room and varied spaces to spend together or have time alone. There is also a play barn with an old pub pool table, a table football and an iPod-dock speaker (or other mp3). Cricket bats and practice balls and a croquet set are provided to use in the 3 acres of garden which includes an enclosed courtyard and a front west facing garden - a perfect place to watch the sun set.
