About Corner Cottage

Corner Cottage is a lovely single-storey period holiday cottage that is located in the quiet, friendly market town of Saxmundham, providing a perfect place for a relaxing break at any time of the year. Here you feel like you are stepping back in time to a more relaxed pace of life.

Saxmundham is a historic market-town (market-day Wednesday) which is positioned on the River Fromus, a tributary of the River Alde. The town is on the old coaching route from Lowestoft to London and many of the pretty cottages and shop-fronts are Georgian or Victorian as a result.

This town is ideally situated just four miles from Snape and eight miles from the popular coastal town of Aldeburgh - providing the ideal base to enjoy all that Suffolk and its beautiful coastline has to offer.

The area is also an excellent choice for Walking Holidays, with numerous planned out routes and it’s gentle terrain. And for Birdwatching too, with RSPB Minsmere just 6 miles away, Orford Ness approx 30 mins drive, and several other Nature Reserves locally.

Located just five hundred yards (less than 5 mins walk) from the Saxmundham's High Street, Corner Cottage is close to the good selection of independent shops to browse. There is also a newsagents, stationers, bakers, chemist, hairdressers, plus two supermarkets - Waitrose and Tesco (both open 7 days). This charming town even has its own Museum and two small art galleries, along with a wide variety of cafes, restaurants and take-away outlets catering for all tastes and budgets.

Evening meal recommendations include... The Bell, The Bistro, and The Queens Head - all in the High Street.

For a leisurely stroll in the evening or after Sunday lunch, Carlton Country Park is just ten minutes walk away and you are able to take a short bus ride (or jump in a taxi) to nearby Leiston, Snape (with its concert hall and independent shopping) or the seaside town of Aldeburgh for an evening at the theatre, cinema, or a meal. Alternatively you may decide to stay more locally and try the “Poacher’s Pocket” - a traditional, quaint country pub serving home-cooked meals and real ales (just five minutes by car or a pleasant 30 minute walk through the Country Park).

Whether you are looking for a relaxing holiday or want to visit the many places of interest and attractions of Suffolk, this is an ideal place to spend a holiday or short break.

Corner Cottage is less than 1 mile from the A12, and Saxmundham is approx 30 minutes drive from most popular places of interest - including Walberswick, Halesworth, Blythburgh, Dunwich, Thorpeness, Aldeburgh, plus the sandy beaches, Pier and Lighthouse at Southwold, the pretty Victorian riverside town Woodbridge, the National Trust castles at Framlingham and Orford... and much more!
