Big on charm and packed full of character, 2 Fox Cottage is nestled in the idyllic village of Darsham. On stepping into 2 Fox Cottage you will at once feel at home in this characterful property; the  period features and presentation of the homely rooms, with a beautiful Victorian fireplace set in the original inglenook, ensures you feel cosy in this endearing cottage, whatever time of year you choose to book. The cottage is close to many amenities and a short drive away from the seaside towns of Southwold, Dunwich and Walberswick, with the RSPB Minsmere and the heaths of AONB close by. You will feel wonderfully relaxed in this charming abode with the cottage itself being nestled behind the cottage front garden. 2 Fox Cottage is only a couple of doors away from the traditional village pub, The Fox Inn, with the popular local farm shop and café being just a short distance down the road meaning you’re fully equipped to enjoy your self-catering stay to the full.

With a warm and inviting kitchen with table and seating, you have all the tools at your fingertips to enjoy home-cooked meals or continental breakfasts with ease. A cosy snug style lounge also retains much of its character and is ideal for those who want to retreat to a cosy spot in front of the wood burner.

A staircase leads you up to the first floor where you’ll find the all-important bedrooms. Packed with charm, there is one tastefully decorated double bedroom with a king size bed, and a delightful single bedroom, making this the ideal rural retreat for a couple or small family. Whether it's a winter hideaway that you're longing for or you're seeking a summer break - you'll find a real 'home-from-home' atmosphere here at 2 Fox Cottages.

Being nestled in the village of Darsham, you can look forward to strolls to the local pub or exploring the fantastic network of surrounding footpaths which will lead you to beautiful countryside walks. Treasured memories are certain as you explore the surrounding countryside and delightful nearby coast. This wonderful cottage provides a year-round couples’ retreat or family holiday for three. The added benefit is the private courtyard garden, perfect for al fresco dining, relaxing or simply reading a book.
