Splendid Suffolk Gardens - Akenfield Cottage


With the summer comes blooms, bees and butterflies and it is the perfect opportunity to showcase some of the excellent gardens our properties feature.

Akenfield Cottage - Garden 1

The views surrounding Akenfield Cottage epitomise rural Suffolk with the sprawling fields and open farmland. Tucked away in the countryside, this property has a beautifully landscaped garden which is three quarters of an acre in size. Buzzards and red kites have been spotted in the area, and the flowers will attract a variety of insect life.

The garden includes a pond, spacious lawns and bed of stunning flowers including foxgloves, poppies and ferns. The mix of vibrant colours with the verdant greenery of shrubs and trees lends this property a stunning and tranquil atmosphere.

The rear garden rolls down to the banks of the River Deben, where there are chairs and a bench to sit and watch the world go by. Also, the area is great for wildlife, with sightings of kingfishers and otters. The property also features a private jetty which has a rowing boat moored to it so you can row half a mile upstream to Abbey Bridge Farm and a quarter of a mile downstream to reach Letheringham Mill.

These gorgeous gardens are ideal for basking in the sun and eating a picnic and in the evening sunset can transform the views into truly stunning sights. Akenfield Cottage is a country escape in the keenest sense.
