Oaklands, Wissett

Beautiful Wheelchair Friendly Bungalow - Sleeps 3

Enjoy England Self Catering 4 Star Award


To minimise risk, we have introduced two safeguards. Firstly, to help protect our domestic staff and guests, we are taking bookings so that there is at least a 72-hour gap between someone leaving and arriving at Oaklands. Secondly, there will be a thorough clean between holidays using anti-bacterial products.


Oaklands is a wonderful detached modern bungalow boasting its own private patio and peaceful garden set within the grounds of the owner’s home. With 2 bedrooms (one double and one single), it sleeps up to 3 in high quality comfortable accommodation. This holiday home is perfect for a relaxing break whatever the season. Set amidst gently undulating countryside just 1 mile from the picturesque market town of Halesworth with its pedestrianised shopping area including tea shops, pubs and restaurants. For fishing enthusiasts Halesworth Lakes (Quiet Sports Fishery Management) offer day tickets and are only 200yds across the lane.

For day trips out Southwold with its sandy beaches, award winning pier, brewery and lighthouse is just 9 miles away and is well known for its beautiful 19th century architecture. Aldeburgh is another popular seaside escape and is only around 16 miles away. Aldeburgh with its shingle beach, estuary and marshes is well worth a visit. Oaklands is a great base from which to discover some of the best of Suffolk.

This spacious detached bungalow with French doors opening onto a delightful patio, is set in the grounds of the owners' home but enjoys its own private garden. It is wheelchair friendly with extra wide front and bathroom doors (other doorways are standard width) and grab rails in the shower room and walk in shower with seat available upon request.
