This pretty village is located in the heart of the Suffolk countryside, with Saxmundham to its east and Diss to its west. It is surrounded by idyllic scenery, with plenty of opportunities for secluded walks through ancient woods and meadows, and along a stunning stretch of coast. This unspoiled landscape is dotted with opulent Tudor homes and picturesque villages which time seems to have forgotten. Local landmarks to look out for on self-catering holidays in Brundish include the Church of St Lawrence. Nearby, in the hamlet of Crown Corner, there is a pub serving a selection of local drinks and good food, and there is a small supermarket in the neighbouring village of Laxfield. A scenic drive eastward from your holiday cottage in Brundish, the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty covers more than 150 square miles, with spectacular shingle beaches, sweeping estuaries, saltmarshes, farmland, and forest to explore. The seaside towns of Aldeburgh and Southwold both have beautiful beaches where sunbathing and swimming can be enjoyed. Close to Brundish, Saxmundham is a charming town with independent shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs. A market is held every Wednesday at Market Place, just off the High Street, with a variety of stalls selling fresh produce from the Suffolk fields and coast.


Escape to serenity at Woodland Retreat Shepherd’s Hut, a gorgeous wooden-clad romantic cottage nestled among woodland in Brundish, Suffolk. Cuddle up in the cosy modern space, relax on the deck and explore the woodland, before ending the day around the outdoor fire. You can even bring your horse.
