Relaxing Rural Escapes
Welcome to Waveney Cottages.
We are Sarah, a textile designer, and Stuart, a Roux trained chef, artisan baker and restorer of period properties.
We live on the Suffolk/Norfolk border with our three small children and two dogs. It’s a beautiful area with forest, heathland, undulating fields and river valleys, pretty market towns and medieval churches.
We’ve been working hard to restore three period properties to create stunning holiday cottages which we want to share with you.
Where will you choose to stay?
We have three beautifully decorated cottages to offer you.
What we offer
The perfect place to stay
Our beautiful cottages are situated on the Suffolk Norfolk border, in the heart of the East Anglian countryside. It’s a beautiful area with forest, heathland, undulating fields and river valleys…pretty market towns, traditional pubs and medieval churches. The Suffolk and North Norfolk coastlines are just an hour’s drive with numerous beaches to explore. The wonderful historic cities of Norwich and Cambridge are also easily accessible by road or rail. Both the Suffolk and Norfolk Broads, with their miles of waterways, are less than an hour away. You can admire them from the banks, with their numerous footpaths and cycle routes, or hire a boat for the day and admire them from the water instead. You won’t be short of things to do when you stay.
