Boatmans sits above a large private garden rolling down to the river Deben, with its own mooring & watercraft (rowing boat, kayak & canoe). A cosy detached 15th Century cottage surrounded by lush undulating countryside, enjoying superb elevated views of the river & woodland beyond.

"Doorstep" activities: rowing, kayaking, canoeing, fishing, birdwatching, walking, cycling, or just rest & relax! There is immediate access to approximately two miles of accessible river right from the garden. Storage shed for bikes, paddleboards, tackle etc. A secluded hideaway, with lots of wildlife, Boatmans is a fantastic rural retreat.

Included with every stay is either entry for RSPB Minsmere (or gift card for members), or a day pass to Ufford Park Health club. Minsmere is one of the richest wildlife areas in the UK and has been the location for the BBC's Spring Watch. The Ufford Park pass provides access to: pool, gym, sauna, steam room, jacuzzi & two mile running track.

From the large private driveway, a path leads to the secluded 'sun-trap' patio area outside the conservatory. The Conservatory - perfect for inclement weather, whilst still being able to enjoy the river/woodland & views, includes a dining table, sofa, armchair & bench.

The kitchen includes a further dining table, electric double oven, grill & hob, microwave & fridge freezer (no dishwasher). One window over looks the front garden & the other faces into the conservatory & river/woodland beyond. There is not a washing machine, however, there is one in an external wash-house (next door at the owners house) that guests are welcome to use. Note there is a good distance between the properties and substantial trees and shrubs between the gardens.

Off the kitchen is a small bedroom with window into the conservatory. There are two standard single beds (one pull out); note there is little space if the second bed is out (see floor plan), however, the door converts into a bi-fold to maximise space. If for two, it is best suited for 6-12 year olds. There is a small chest of drawers & hanging rails.

The cosy, heavily beamed living room, has soft seating for four, Smart TV & a multi-fuel fire. Note there is also oil fired central heating throughout (including conservatory). A front door leads into a porch/boot room off the lounge (with log supplies for the fire) & to the front garden, with path to the quiet country lane.

A surprisingly ample five-piece bathroom includes a full-length deep roll top bath, large power shower, toilet, bidet & sink.

The upstairs bedroom has a super-king size bed, with Hypnos gold mattresses, 100% cotton linen & choice of thick or thin pillows! There is a further TV/DVD player & a large dormer window providing stunning views of the river & woodland beyond.
