Your Self-catering Holiday Cottage in Suffolk By the River

Detached, beamed and set right on the riverbank, Boatmans in Letheringham is the perfect year-round self-catering holiday cottage in Suffolk – a hideaway for birdwatchers, anglers, couples and active young families. Painted in Suffolk-pink, the romantically quirky, warm and wonderfully well-equipped cottage has roses round the door and superb views of the river and woodland beyond.

Its very own large, secluded, fully enclosed garden rolls down to the River Deben and comes complete with private landing stage and small rowing boat (or bring your own watercraft!). Set in a Designated Special Landscape Area with Suffolk Heritage Coast beaches, Aldeburgh, Southwold, Snape Maltings and RSPB Minsmere all just a short drive away, this really is a very special riverside getaway worthy of Mole, Ratty and friends!
