Hillcrest was conceived to replace an old workshop and make full use of the stunning countryside views from the highest point of the property. It was designed by the owner with assistance from her marvellous builders and engineers. The project unfolded from 2014 and has resulted in a beautiful, stylish modern holiday home.
The cottage has a 2 story glazed gable end, huge open plan living areas, and 2 lovely boutique hotel style, en-suite double bedrooms. Further guests can be accommodated on the 2 double sofabeds in the lounge area.
Included in the price, guests receive a welcome pack including complimentary wine, homemade bread, homemade jam, homemade chocolate biscuit cake, homemade biscuits, fresh fruit, fresh milk, orange juice and real coffee.
There is underfloor heating throughout and all modern conveniences from fully equipped utility room to the contemporary kitchen area with breakfast bar.
The views and gardens are very pretty encompassing 3 patio areas with outside dining seating to a patio lounge area for afternoon evenings with sofa style furniture.
The cottage location is perfect for exploring the Suffolk Heritage Coast region being roughly equidistant from Aldeburgh and Southwold.
Things to do in and around the area are Sutton Hoo Saxon burial grounds, RSPB at Minsmere (as seen on Springwatch 2014-16), Aldeburgh, Southwold, Snape Maltings, Birds of Prey Centre, Suffolk Punch Horses, Framlingham Castle, Orford Ness and Castle, Dunwich Heath, Rendlesham Forest and many coastal towns.
Pets and children (over 12 years old) are welcome.

The cottage was amazing...
August 23rd 2018
Fantastic break whilst visiting relatives for a party. The cottage was amazing with Julia providing everything over and above. The cleanliness was second to none and we will make sure all our friends (with or without dogs) come here next. Thank you so much.

What a great relaxing holiday at Hillcrest. We came to relax and recharge and that's exactly what we did. It was so peaceful and restful. Rocky loved the walks and the beach at Sizewell. The start to the holiday with the fresh baked bread, jam, biscuits and the delicious biscuit cake made us feel special. We would love to come again and explore the area more. Thank you!
Absolute gem of a cottage!

What an absolute gem of a cottage! The location is perfect, fabulous views, and so quiet and peaceful. We felt we were in a haven of calm. The cottage is beautifully fitted out and has everything you could ever want inside and out. We are already planning our return visit next year!
Wheelchair and dog friendly
February 10th 2018
The perfect place to spend my birthday. Hillcrest is the most well equipped holiday cottage we have stayed in and all the home made treats were wonderful. It is hard to find somewhere that is suitable for both our dogs and my wheelchair and Hillcrest is perfect! We hope to return in the not too distant future. Thankyou!
