The Away with the Kids review
The five cottages and party barn which make up East Green Farm Cottages are situated in the peaceful countryside three miles from the beautiful Suffolk coastline and near to the seaside towns of Aldeburgh and Southwold and local beaches. All the sympathetically converted holiday cottages are rated 4 star by English Tourism Council and are located in the grounds of East Green Farm with its wonderful 500 year old farm house that the owners Claire and Robert live with their family.
The Holiday Cottages
Four of the child friendly cottages have three bedrooms sleeping a family of 6 plus cots and Gardener's cottage is the smallest holiday property with two bedrooms all on one level sleeping 4. Walking through the door of your cottage you will notice how light and spacious these holiday properties are with a clean and fresh, contemporary look that complements the exposed wooden beams and white walls. The white fretwork shutters are a pretty and practical feature for the windows. As Claire helpfully points out "no more unsightly kids hand marks on curtains - just one wipe and they're clean again". With wonderful large barn windows, the centrally-heated cottages are well equipped and include modern appliances such as TV / Video, dishwasher, washing machine and microwave. Each cottage has its own enclosed garden decked out with patio furniture and BBQ for you to take full advantage of alfresco dining. When travelling with youngsters and babies, travel cots, highchairs, stairgates, fireguards and age appropriate children's toys can be supplied - just ask on booking.
The Party Barn
The Party Barn is available to hire if a large group of families or friends wish to have an alternative space to the holiday cottages, large enough to be able to accommodate up to 28 people, to be able to socialise or celebrate together. Its benefit is it avoids the onus being on one family to cater, entertain and clean up afterwards in their own private holiday cottage. The party barn has its own kitchen with an oven, fridge, dishwasher, microwave and hob, is fully equipped with everything from crockery to CD player, along with toilet facilities and central heating. If you are celebrating a special occasion you may wish to book a recommended local caterer to give you a meal to remember. Party Barn bookings start at £195 for a low season weekend and is only booked with the cottages.
Child Friendly Facilities on the Farm
It is great to find a holiday where you can be comfortable with the children to have a taste of freedom and East Green Farm is such a place - roam within the 13 acres of paddocks that surround the farm and hook up with newly acquainted holiday buddies. The heated outdoor pool is open in the summer months and is a glorious suntrap when the sun decides to shine.
The children's enclosed outdoor play area features quality wooden play equipment with swings and slides. The large trampoline does not have a safety enclosure so you must keep an eye on little ones. Tempting although it is, adults must refrain from using the trampoline as it is intended for children's enjoyment only! But if you do have lots of energy to expand the tennis court is the ideal place to burn up some calories. Additional tennis coaching is available for both kids and adults. A small fishing pond is located on the farm away from the cottages.
