Stanley Cottage is a 3 bedroom, period holiday cottage in Leiston 1 mile from Suffolk’s Heritage Coast, just 3 miles from Thorpeness & 4 miles from Aldeburgh.

2 Bedrooms are available - one twin bedroom with 2 single beds and a single room with one single bed (this listing is for the single bedroom - the twin bedroom has its own separate Airbnb listing).

The space
Stanley Cottage is a recently refurbished 3 bedroom property (1 double, 1 twin and 1 single), with lounge bathroom, and small courtyard garden in Leiston on Suffolk's Heritage Coast. The whole property is also for rent and has its own listing on Airbnb.

We recently installed a wood-burning stove in the lounge. The whole property is available for you and your family.

There is a good sized lounge with 2 sofas and a newly installed wood-burning stove. The is a table for dining with 4 chairs. Other facilities in the lounge include a smart TV with Netflix account you are free to use, CD Payer, integrated Sonos sound system (with speakers around the house), DAB radio and dedicated laptop/office station.

The kitchen has all the usual appliances including kettle, large toaster, many newly purchased saucepans, gas hob, electric oven, microwave oven etc. Just next to the kitchen is a small utility room with washing machine installed. There is also an iron and ironing board, and a clothes hanger.

The bathroom is large with hand basin, WC and bath with shower over.

There is one double bedroom with 2 single beds, TV and canvas wardrobe and a single room with single bed and TV as well as storage space. This listing is specific to the single bedroom only - the twin bedroom has its own separate Airbnb listing.

Please note that the stairs have been described as being "a bit steep" by a previous elderly guest. Possibly not suitable for anyone with mobility issues.

We have a small, low-maintenance back garden with arbour seating area as well as table and chairs and reclining sun-chair.

There is a large Co-Op supermarket within 2 mins walk.

Leiston is a quaint Suffolk town with a steam museum, leisure centre with swimming pool and its own cinema. It also has at least 4 pubs (some of which provide dining), many shops and takeaways and 4 social clubs (most of which are open to non-members).

Nearby beaches can be found at Sizewell (1.5 miles), Thorpeness (3 miles) and of course at Aldeburgh which is a short car-ride of 4 miles away.

Other attractions in the area include Leiston Abbey in Leiston, Minsmere Bird Reserve RSPB (3 miles), Snape Maltings (6 miles), Southwold (10 miles), plus National Trust at Dunwich, Sutton, and Orford Ness.

There are also some great golf courses in the area (Alderburgh, Thorpeness and others) so this is a great location for golf holidays. In fact we do get many enquiries from golfers.

If you are visiting the area for work purposes Stanley Cottage is just 1.5 miles from the Sizewell Power Station.

Car parking is usually available on Prospect Place right outside Stanley Cottage. If for any reason you cannot find a parking space outside on the road then there is a free long-stay car park just around the corner (about 50 yards from Stanley Cottage).
