i really missed my whitstable cottage – as tiny as it was, it was a lovely refuge from the city, but now we have a cottage not far from the sea in Wrentham, Suffolk. its 5 mins drive from the beautiful nature beach Covehithe and 10 mins drive from the lovely seaside town of Southwold and nearby Walberswick.   its actually 2 georgian cottages that have been joined together, with wild flower garden, a couple of sheds and a summer house -its been a fun task restoring and furnishing it to make a comfortable home.

to make the journey seem shorter, i have been stopping off at different places to break the monotonous journey on the A12 and Woodbridge has been my popular choice.  woodbridge is inland, but has a lovely village green on which you will find numerous shops, old and new, including a lovely violin making shop, an antique shop reminiscent to Mrs Haversham’s house,  vanil for lovely interior ideas, quite the scandinavian look, geometric rugs and cushions, , homespun for cashmere and labels such as YMC and margaret howell.  for healthy lunch, try the cooks shed or wild strawberry cafe if you continue down the main high street, you will find a couple of vintage shops too, in particular a good clothes one.

its been an adventure discovering the different areas of suffolk, but one that i have loved;  its not whitstable, and almost double the time to get there, but there is definitely something very special about the area. here is our local beach covehithe – beautiful sandy beach completely unspoilt.
