Withersdale Cottages are located on the Norfolk/Suffolk border in the beautiful Waveney valley, providing the perfect base from which to explore all that both counties have to offer, from their local market towns to the heritage coast.
Converted in 2011, these two Grade II listed cottages provide high quality self-catering accommodation and are both dog friendly with a large garden for them and lovely local walks. Golden Cross (featured in this advert) sleeps four guests and The Kiln is ideal for couples sleeping two. Both cottages can also be rented together for parties of six, making them ideal for families who perhaps want to take parents away with them.
Everything is provided to ensure your stay is a memorable one from King-size comfy beds to stylish quality showers, and a welcome tray for your arrival. The owners are on hand during your stay to provide as much or as little knowledge of the local area as needed.
The pretty market town of Harleston is just two miles from the cottages and offers a good selection of individual shops, pubs, restaurants, supermarket and takeaway’s, along with a weekly Wednesday market. The other towns of Bungay, Beccles, Diss and Halesworth are also within easy reach, and have their own unique character, shops and market day.
For beach lovers, the seaside town of Southwold is under thirty minutes by car and is extremely popular with its Golden sands, Beach huts and Victorian pier. The towns of Aldeburgh and Dunwich are also easy driving distance, as is Walberswick which is good for dog walking. For more traditional seaside fun head to Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft.
The local area offers a good choice of places to enjoy a meal out including cafe’s, restaurants and hotels catering for everything from traditional pub food to fine dining, along with plenty of pubs serving local ales (the local village pub is a one mile walk from the cottages). For a wider choice of attractions and eating establishments, head to the Cathedral city of Norwich which is just twenty minutes with its historic buildings, great shopping, galleries and theatres.
For outdoor enthusiasts, the local area offers lovely walks for all abilities and cycle rides. Excellent fishing is available nearby at Weybread with six lakes and nearby River Waveney. Wildlife enthusiasts are also in for a treat with some of the best bird watching to be found anywhere in the country from the local fens and marchlands to the coastal locations such as RSPB Minsmere.
