Suffolk Cottages : self-catering holiday accommodation near Minsmere
Meadow & Minsmere Cottages are both cosy cottages for up to four people. They are adjacent to each other in Eastbridge, Suffolk and can be let together to accommodate up to 8 people. Both cottages will take well behaved dogs. Eastbridge is situated close to the world-renowned RSPB Minsmere reserve. Many lovely Suffolk towns and villages, beaches, nature reserves and other attractions are within easy reach, while if you want to leave the car at home, there are loads of fantastic walks and cycle routes from your doorstep.
Each of the cottages sleeps four in a double and a twin bedroom, and has a cosy log burning stove, with WIFI and freesat provided; well-behaved pets are welcome. Holly Tree Cottage has been let since 2007, and its quality and popularity speaks for itself, in the level of repeat bookings we receive. Meadow and Minsmere Cottages have been sympathetically restored and renovated, and have been let since 2012. All three cottages were awarded a 4* rating when they were inspected by VisitEngland and they have been maintained to the same standards ever since.

Barn Owls July 2022
Barn Owls 2022
Unfortunately, this year the barn owl box has been taken over by jackdaws. Barn owls have occupied the nest for 8 years with the jackdaws living in a separate compartment at the top. Breeding was successful in 7 of those 8 years. Despite a barn owl occupying the nest box this winter, the jackdaws made their move in the spring and they are now sitting on eggs. Hopefully the barn owls will make a comeback next year!

Barn Owls 2020
The Barn Owls stayed in the nest box throughout winter and produced a clutch of eggs this spring. Unfortunately, the camera got knocked out of position so we couldn't see the eggs or chicks very clearly. At the moment there are two healthy looking chicks in the box, who we hope to see fledging in the next few weeks. If we manage to get any decent photos, we'll post them on the news page and Twitter.
