Warm brick façades draped with trailing vines greet you at the end of your own country lane. Step inside to your hideaway where it’s absolute peace and quiet for just the two of you.
The quiet country lane sets the scene for this romantic retreat at the heart of some very pretty English countryside. Admire the gently trailing vines on the vibrant brick façade, the flourish of flowers in the borders with their bench nook and the dreamy pond. Then step inside your Suffolk sanctuary.
Opening up before you is stylish elegance where just the two of you can relax in harmonious peace and quiet. The open plan living room comes surprisingly spacious and flooded with natural light. Inviting armchairs and sofas sit under stunning feature beams and before a striking geometric rug bring just the right splash of colour to the space. Come the evening you might fancy the warming crackle of the woodburning stove accompanied by perhaps just the twilight birdsong or a little romantic something on the iPad dock.
The harmonious living continues into the fully fitted kitchen in stylish black and muted grey where both of you will lap up the luxury of the Nespresso coffee machine and granite breakfast bar. Dine al fresco in the sun-drenched courtyard, accessible from both your living room and bedroom, which as you’d expect, is just as spacious and stylish as the rest of your romantic retreat.
Relax into well earned rest in king size comfort and awaken to nature, the only sound you’ll hear at your hideaway. And when you’re ready, venture further afield into the private garden – three acres of private nature reserve, pond and water meadows. Or take a few steps further into Ufford with its historic church and the River Deben. And then return to your very own haven of peace and quiet for just the two of you.
Bedrooms and bathrooms
The Stables sleeps 2 people in one spacious bedroom with king size bed and doors to the courtyard. The generously-sized bathroom comes fitted with a walk-in shower and there’s also a handy cloakroom.

Lovely to be back again (Last visit in 2016). Peter and Jane congratulations your attention to detail is perfection. You have truly thought of everything, a masterclass in how a holiday cottage should run. We have had a lovely, relaxing and comfortable stay. We have revisited some of our favourite places and discovered new ones like the Red House in Aldeburgh and the River Blyth at Walberswick. The weather has been very mixed so it has limited what we did. We enjoyed seeing the bats at dusk, but havent seen the Barn Owl this time. We had two very good meals at the Coach & Horses in Melton and can recommend the Bell Inn, Walberswick for lunch as well as the Magpie Bakery in Aldeburgh for tea. We have had a lovely relaxing and comfortable stay in a wonderful cottage we will recommend to friends. We will be back.Michael & Ann, Lincolnshire - 14th June 2019
We are so pleased that we decided to extend out stay by a further 2 nights. Such a beautiful place - we love Suffolk - the peace and tranquility here is beautiful. Thank you for your hospitality Jane & Peter. We have enjoyed every minute including some good meals out at The Unruly Pig, The Crown and The Markert in Aldeburgh. Loved the Red House and Snape Maltings. We very much hope to come back another time. A huge thank you!! Oh and love Willow she made us feel very at Home!Ann & Paul - 7th June 2019
Had a lovely stay here at The Stables, very comfortable and beautiful place. The hosts Peter & Jae very friendly and accomodating. Lots to do in this area, you need a second visit. Lauren suggested fish n chips at Aldeburgh and also the village of Lavenham, both great, definitely recommend a visit. ThanksDeb & Craig - 25th May 2019
A lovely stay at The Stables, coupled with sunny weather. Very comfortable place to stay, superbly appointed.

Our first visit to this area - have been both north and south before. Arrived to a warm welcome but suffering from heavy colds. Spent a lot of time at Landguard Fort Felixstowe viewpoint - fascinating watching the container handling. MInsmere worth a visit and shingle street quite different as was Orford. Cottage very comfy, warm and well equipped - the conversion has been really well done with best of fittings and equipment. Local pubs good, Coop in Woodbridge very handy with good parking.

Fabulous property and hosts, highly recommendedMr David Cousins - 23rd May 2016
The property was exceptionally well equipped but without being cluttered: everything you could want and no more. The kitchen was particularly well equipped. The owners were helpful and welcoming. The grounds to the property were particularly lovely with brilliant wildlife to watch. Lower Ufford is a lovely peaceful village, and is relatively close to plenty of tourist attractions. Willow Stables was a very picturesque and exceptionally comfortable place to stay. Great for getting away from it all.Mrs Glenis Redhead - 15th May 2016
It is a very well-appointed property, private and a great base for a holiday. The owners are so friendly and helpful and the use of a lovely summerhouse in their beautiful garden is a real bonus. A really delightful property I hope to return to. It is a hassle-free way of holidaying in my experience..... Information is clear and comprehensive and properties are always very well serviced.Miss Felicity Palmer - 8th May 2016
We've stayed in Suffolk Secret properties in Ufford village on two occasions. We found each accommodation to be excellent in terms of furnishings and facilities. The village is very handy for visits to places like Southwold, Aldeburgh and Woodbridge. The Mr John Deering - 24th March 2016

Superb cottage in tranquil setting and very friendly owners.Mr J Chain - 25th August 2015
This is a lovely property in a great location and the garden and sun house are a peaceful haven for watching the local wildlife !Mrs L Ramage - 12th August 2015
We were extremely impressed with the quality of furnishing and fittings in the Stables. The use of the owners grounds and Summerhouse were an added bonus. The owners were very welcoming and we would have no hesitation in recommending the Stables to family and friends wishing to stay in the area. The area very convenient to visit the many local attractions.Mr D Pitts - 21st June 2015
This is one of the best holiday lets we have used. The property and the facilities were of the highest quality and the owners friendly and really helpful. The property is in a truly rural location but links to nearby places of interest and towns were convenient. Two local pubs can be reached on foot and both serve excellent food.Mrs Diane Brown - 1st June 2015
