Located, just off the A12 in Suffolk, in the quiet village of Great Glemham, Simpers Drift is a lovingly converted detached dairy, in the grounds of the owner’s home, with stunning high ceilings, original features throughout and fabulous modern touches. The cosy wood burner is ideal for those cooler evenings and a mature garden and sprawling grounds to explore outside.
Surrounding the property, you will find an excellent network of walks and cycle routes meandering through the pretty Suffolk villages, both country and coastal. The National Trust owned Sutton Hoo is only a 15-minute drive away, and the nearby Dunwich Heath is within 25 minutes. A 35-minute drive is the Port of Felixstowe and its beaches with the passenger foot and bike Ferry leaving from Landguard Fort to Historic Harwich and Shotley, this is provided by award winning Harwich Harbour Ferry Services who also run excellent seal watching trips all year round. The nearby Woodland Trust area Pound Farm is a wonderful mix of woodland, orchard, grassy race, wildflower meadow and ponds of 250 acres which is nearly all fenced, ideal for those with four-legged guests! This part of Suffolk boasts many country estates for visiting including, Helmingham Hall, Crows Hall and Hevingham Hall. All with gardens, history and culture to explore. Framlingham is well worth a visit, its castle a particular highlight along with excellent restaurant, pubs and shops. Simpers Drift is near Snape Maltings which is famous for being Benjamin Britten’s concert hall and only 6 miles from the seaside town of Aldeburgh. Also nearby and well worth a visit is the RSPB Nature Reserve at Minsmere and approximately 35 minutes away is the coastal town of Southwold and the village of Walberswick. The property is also within easy reach of numerous wedding venues. Beach 9 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

    We had a really lovely time at Simpers Drift. June and Nic were great, offering helpful hints about nice places but also giving us our own space. Well located cottage, great local pub within walking distance. Also only about 10 minutes drive from a couple of local towns for supplies. Just beware the bedroom beams!

    This converted dairy has been renovated to the highest specification and is truly characterful, situated in the prettiest of gardens in a lovely part of the countryside. The hosts were extremely welcoming and their attention to detail was second to none. We highly recommend Simper's Drift.

    Pleasant cottage with lovely hosts, in a peaceful setting, but within easy reach of attractions and local towns.

    We enjoyed our stay at Simper's Drift where the owners were very good to us. A supply of milk and some white wine on arrival was much appreciated. It was not far from the A12 where you could drive to all centres (Southwold etc.) Equipment was OK but does need a bread knife. Briefing by owner was OK but does need to explain where to find handbooks for equipment to save needless enquiries.
