Located on the Suffolk Heritage coast, this is a simple but nonetheless gorgeous property is perfect for a couple seeking an idyllic getaway, free from the stresses of everyday life. It has everything you might need; a luxury king-sized bed, comfortable chairs, a flat screen TV. A small but well-equipped kitchen area, along with the dining area, perfect for cosy nights in over a bottle of wine. Guests can also enjoy the west-facing deck equipped with table and chairs.
Exploring: The Fox Inn Garden Room is perfectly placed in the heart of the beautiful Suffolk countryside, with easy access to neighbouring towns and villages. The property provides the ideal combination of a quiet country escape with the opportunity to visit the picturesque seaside towns of Aldeburgh, Dunwich and Southwold. Why not try a brewery tour at Adnams, both fun and educational, or a trip to the iconic Southwold pier? You can even let loose your childish side with crabbing, your creativity with pottery-painting and your thirst for adventure with a voyage on a high-speed trip out to sea, all unique to the Suffolk coast.

Self Catering: The Market towns of Beccles and Halesworth are a short drive away with a variety of independent stores, grocers and butchers. Market day in Halesworth is on a Wednesday and rural Suffolk is littered with farm shops so you won't need to travel far for great local produce. Wangford Farm Shop or Southwold Farmers Market are definitely worth visiting.
Thorpeness has a traditional village shop providing the community and holidaymakers with locally sourced fresh food. The shop stocks all the essentials, as well as a good selection of wine, local cheeses from the deli counter and local fudge from Olga.
Aldeburgh has two Co-op stores with one situated on the High Street. Several shops sell top quality local produce - Lawsons delicatessen is a must as is Aldeburgh Market. Fresh fish, lobsters and crabs can be bought from the sheds on Aldeburgh beach. With an Independent wine shop, butcher and baker, Aldeburgh caters for most needs! Snape Maltings is a few miles away with The Food Hall and Farmers Market.
Eating and Drinking out: Perhaps the most convenient aspect of this holiday home is that the Fox Inn is a mere stroll away; enjoy a traditional hearty Suffolk dinner with a pint of Adnams in hand in a glorious rural setting, surely the best (and only) way to experience Suffolk’s cuisine! After your relaxed dinner, make sure to walk off your meal in the tranquility of the countryside, and bathe in the serenity of this quaint little village.
If you fancy venturing out of Darsham, you will be spoilt for choice: with Dunwich a mere 4 miles away from the property, dine out at the Ship Inn or grab some fish and chips before a walk on the atmospheric beach. With Aldeburgh so close by you also have the wealth of the seaside town’s foodie delights to choose from, with a variety of pubs, restaurants and tearooms. The White Lion Hotel has sea views and a traditional menu, and Prezzo provides a relaxed, friendly atmosphere for all ages. For slightly more formal dining try Regatta or The Lighthouse. However, no trip to Suffolk could be complete without trying the town’s world-class fish and chips: there are two great fish and chip shops in Aldeburgh high street, both with a fantastic reputation... you may have to queue at busy lunchtime periods but it will be well worth the wait
