The place The rural village of Rumburgh is set in the heart of the Suffolk countryside. This self-contained holiday let is half of our 16th century thatched cottage, which has been lovingly restored with traditional building techniques, using wattle and daube and lime plaster. The area The cottage is only 20 minutes from Southwold and Walberswick. RSPB Minsmere is about 30 minutes away as is The National Trust's Dunwich Heath and English Heritage's Framlingham Castle.
We are in the middle of Suffolk countryside, surrounded by fields with amazing views, colourful sunrises & sunsets. There is a maze of footpath & permitted walks right on our door-step. Ideal for that quiet week-end. Spectacular thunderstorms sometimes occur as the cloud formations follow the river valleys. During these storms rain-bows appear. We've not yet found a pot of gold though! At night if the sky is cloudless you can see all the stars & spot the well-known constellations.
Set in an area of outstanding natural beauty, Robin's Rest is an idyllic base for exploring the coastline and forests of Suffolk. Only 15 minutes from Southwold, Walberswick and Dunwich and 5 minutes from the charming market town of Halesworth with its excellent range of pubs and restaurants. Totally private and self-contained, with a verandah, dog-friendly garden and parking. Great for romantic breaks or family holidays. Please message with any questions - Sarah :)
