Chapel Cottage Continued

Chapel Cottage is a traditional Suffolk flint-fronted holiday cottage that is believed to date back to around the 1800’s. The cottage has been renovated to provide guests with all the modern comforts and conveniences you would expect and has many period-style features to add interest. It is quite small, but very lovely and is suitable for a single person or couple. Sorry - no pets, or children (including infants), and no smoking inside the cottage. The stairs are quite steep (there is a handrail), so it may not be suitable for guests with any mobility problems.

  • For rainy days or lazy afternoons there is a small library of books, DVDs and board-games on the bookcase. The flat-screen television (with FREEVIEW channels) also plays DVD's and music CDs. There is also a radio.

  • Bathroom with short (5') bath and shower attachment over the bath, plus shaver-light.
