There is a driveway providing vehicle parking and access to a detached double garage, single garage/workshop, greenhouse and a cart lodge.

The cottage enjoys a splendid setting overlooking open countryside whilst situated in the popular and well-served village of Bacton. The village benefits from a very well-regarded primary school, garage, public house, church, doctors surgery and local shop. Excellent access is gained to the A14 dual carriageway, linking the east coast ports, Bury St Edmunds, Newmarket, Cambridge and London via the M11 motorway. The nearby market town of Stowmarket provides a good range of local facilities and of particular note is the rail link to London's Liverpool Street station.

From Bury St Edmunds proceed east on the A14 taking the exit marked Wetherden. Once entering Wetherden proceed over the staggered crossroads and follow the road up the hill towards Bacton. At the T junction turn left towards Bacton. When entering Bacton turn left into Wyverstone Road (next to the village shop), and the property will be found a short distance further on the right hand side.
