Yew Tree Cottage - Self catering holiday cottage in Metfield, Harleston, Suffolk, England - Sleeps 2+1
This is a charming conversion of an 18th Century barn that is set amidst three acres of peaceful countryside just above the Waveney Valley on the Suffolk/Norfolk Borders, providing the ideal retreat for relaxing or for couples (+ child) who want to explore these two beautiful counties.
Located at the end of a private lane, this delightful holiday home is surrounded by fields and from the rear there is a gate that takes you out to an endless complex of bridleways and footpaths, for which the area is renowned - a perfect place for taking a picnic and exploring the area by foot (the owners provide a picnic hamper and freezer box!).
It is a haven for those who enjoy the countryside and the tranquility it has to offer, yet it is only a few miles from a wealth of interesting villages, towns, and access to the Norfolk Broads with its network of waterways - something to offer everyone.
Yew Tree Cottage is a double storey barn conversion with two single storey wings. It is one of the wings that has been converted to provide holiday accommodation of a high standard. It is conveniently situated for the market towns of Harleston (four miles), Bungay (seven miles), Diss (twelve miles), Beccles which leads into the Norfolk Broads (twelve miles), Halesworth (seven miles) and Southwold/Dunwich (the coast - some ten to fifteen miles distance). The Cathedral City of Norwich is approximately twenty two miles to the north and Ipswich the county town of Suffolk is twenty five miles to the south.
The village of Mendham is just over a mile away and offers a pub serving food and a village shop with Organic bakery. From Mendham you can join up with the Angles Way (a seventy seven mile footpath that runs from Great Yarmouth on the coast, to Knettishall Heath in Breckland). Wortwell and Homersfield are also nearby and have public houses, which serve food and Minsmere - the RSPB reserve is just a few miles away and acclaimed as one of the best bird reserves in the country.
