Amrose Cottage, Blythburgh (Sleeps 4)
Superbly set in the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding and Natural Beauty, Amrose Cottage (sleeping 4-5), built as part of the magnificent Grade II listed Georgian workhouses, is now completely refurbished to provide a large open-plan sitting and dining room, fully-fitted kitchen, two upstairs bedrooms and bathroom and use of an indoor swimming pool and gym.
Standing on the summit of a hill, Amrose Cottage has had a stunning outlook over the Blyth river and the surrounding valley since the 17th century, whilst having its own small garden and access to the large communal grounds that surround the property.
Readers of P. D. James will no doubt be aware that Superintendent Adam Dalgliesh passes through Blythburgh in Unnatural Causes
. Of Blythburgh Church, also known as the Cathedral of the Marshes, P. D. James describes the ‘cold silvery whiteness of one of the loveliest church interiors in Suffolk’. The nearby hamlet and wild beach of Covehithe, with its soft, white sandy shores and marram grass dunes, is where Death in Holy Orders
is set and walking by the sea in Southwold has long been one of P. D. James’ favourite pastimes.
A great base not only for P. D. James fans, but with its proximity to Minsmere and Southwold, ideal for birdwatchers, cyclists and families with young children and teenagers. Sleeps 4/5 - 1 double and 1 bunk room with double bed.
