Pebble Cottage in Pakefield, Suffolk
The cottage we've selected for you this month is a little different to normal.
We usually make sure we stay at the cottage, so we can let you know exactly what the
accommodation is like. This time though, we haven't stayed there, although we have
been for a good look round.
The cottage in question is Pebble Cottage in Pakefield.
Pakefield is a small village, which is now joined onto the town of Lowestoft, in Suffolk. And the reason
we haven't stayed at Pebble Cottage yet is that this particular cottage has only just been
purchased by the new owners, and is currently being completely refurbished for use as a
Tell us about Pebble Cottage
Pebble Cottage is a small fisherman's cottage, built in 1828. The
accommodation will sleep 4 people, in 2 bedrooms - although the second
bedroom is quite small, so ideally suited to a couple of children,
rather than adults.
The cottage will feature a wood burning stove; and anyone who's ever used a
wood burner will know how snug they can make you feel - especially when there is
an easterly wind blowing in off the sea.
What's going on around Pebble Cottage
As you may know, Pakefield and Lowestoft sit right on the coast in East Anglia,
and Pebble Cottage has a large garden which backs directly onto the beach. What a
beach it is too. Walk a couple of hundred meters to the north and you've got
golden sand which is fantastic for family summer breaks; walk a couple of hundred
meters to the south, and you've got a shingle beach which is still used by the
small fishing boats.
Lowestoft is the most easterly point in the UK, so get up early enough and be the first
to witness the sun coming up over the sea - and you'll see why this called the "sunrise coast".
Why should I stay at Pebble Cottage?
Lowestoft makes a great base for a cottage holiday, and Pebble Cottage makes a great
place to stay. Whether you fancy a summer short break near a lovely beach; or a winter
holiday, maybe with a bit of sea fishing - Pebble Cottage is the place to be.
You're right on the edge of the Norfolk Broads here, with Oulton Broad only a couple
of miles away. If you've got a child or two with you, there's
Pleasurewood Hills Theme Park
just up the road. Or BeWILDerwood
is 45 minutes away - along with a whole host of other attractions which are located in this lovely part
of the country.
