Description of the Rutland vacation cottage rental
Driftway is a two hundred year old cottage which has been renovated to a high standard of modern comfort. Set in a row of pretty cottages in a peaceful part of Suffolk, it is off the beaten track, in the middle of ideal walking and cycling country, yet close to the Suffolk heritage coast.

The property is suitable for up to 4 people. The main bedroom has a king-size (5 ') double bed and the second bedroom has a single bed with another one stowed underneath. A travel cot is available on request.

The cottage has a large living room with traditional open fireplace. There is a door to the stairwell, leading to the two bedrooms and a shower-room with basin and WC. The kitchen is fully equipped and has a refrigerator, washing machine, cooker and micro-wave oven.

There is heating throughout and the cost of electricity is included in the rent. The cottage has a garden and parking for two cars at the front and a secure rear garden with herbaceous and perennial flowering plants and a patio. A portable barbecue and garden chairs are provided.

This is a peaceful retreat, and as such the cottage does not have a TV or telephone. It does, however, have a radio, CD/mini-disc and DVD player, as well as a stock of books and games.
