BEAUTIFUL SUFFOLK COTTAGE CLOSE TO PIN MILL AND THE COAST

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Chelmondiston - Elm Cottage

Elm Cottage is in the heart of the thriving village of Chelmondiston, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty just ten minutes walk from the riverside hamlet of Pin Mill. This Victorian semi-detached cottage has been fully refurbished. It comfortably sleeps six adults in one double and two twin bedrooms, plus two more adults on sofa beds. There is a bathroom upstairs and a shower room downstairs. The main living area includes a kitchen with granite work surfaces, range cooker, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and microwave. There is a dining table, sofas and armchairs, and a TV/DVD. Also downstairs is a cosy sitting room with an open fireplace. There is a separate utility room. The cottage is at the end of a 100-yard path from the road so, while being convenient for local shops and services, it is also quiet and safe for children.

Please note: The way this site works gives a false impression of our weekend and weekday rates. Please email for correct rates.

We want Elm Cottage to offer you a bit of luxury while you are on holiday. You will find crisp 100% Egyptian cotton linen on the beds, bubble bath and fluffy towels in the bathrooms. The furniture is carefully chosen for comfort and style, there are original local paintings on the walls. We leave up to date DVDs for the flat screen TV/DVD. The kitchen has dualit appliances and just to make sure your stay gets off to the right start you'll find a bottle of wine, a cup of tea and a biscuit.

A sailor's heaven: Chelmondiston and the hamlet of Pin Mill are on the Shotley peninsula, just one hour from the M25 junction with the A12 and one hour along the A14 from Cambridge. The peninsula is about eight miles long and four miles wide and is bordered by the Rivers Orwell and Stour. At the tip of the peninsula at Shotley just a couple of miles from Elm Cottage you can look out to sea past the ports of Felixstowe and Harwich. This is a fabulous area for watersports..with marinas at the neighbouring villages Woolvestone and Shotley. Pin Mill itself has a long association with seafaring, and particularly the magnificence Thames barges. You can watch these beautiful red sailed boats from the world famous Butt and Oyster pub has been feeding and watering sailors for hundreds of years. In the centre of the Shotley peninsular is Alton reservoir, here you can hire smaller dinghies, canoes and windsurfers for the day or even enrol in RYA courses to learn to sail .

A foodie paradise: Wheat, bean, potato and onion fields surround Chelmondiston and Pin Mill, this is an area which prides itself on the quality of the food it produces. Jimmy's Farm is a couple of miles away, with its rare breed pigs and butterfly trails it's a great authentic outdoor adventure for children. For the grown ups there's a fabulous restuarant and shop. A little closer to Elm Cottage is The Suffolk Food Hall, a new and expanding venture but one of Suffolk oldest farming families. This is like the Harrods Food Hall in the country. A fantastic butcher, fishmonger...fresh bread baked every day, a restaurant, cafe and garden centre, plus a outstanding view of the river make this a very easy way to wile a way few hours., and the simplest way to stock up for barbecuing at Elm Cottage. The Butt and Oyster serves food all day, the Pin Mill gallery has a resident cordon bleu trained cake maker and a cappuccino machine.

Enjoyed the local walks. We will remember the beautiful views, the sunshine and the sight of our four kids covered in mud by the Butt and Oyster.
