Great hospitality from the owners. The best cottage we have stayed at in Suffolk. Will consider returning in another year.

Mr Michael S,

Past Customer,

Great character. Perfect for two people.

Mr Nicolas R,

It’s really well equipped and comfortable

Mr Andrew N,

Lovely cottage, clean and comfortable. We had a very friendly welcome from the hosts Dave and Anne who live next door. We appreciated the muffins, eggs and fruit which they supplied. They have an amazing garden which is full of dahlias at this time of year. All-in-all we would highly recommend this cottage.

Mr Alex P,

Owners are extremely welcoming and friendly, couldn't ask for better.

Mr David J,

The owners were charming and very friendly and the house was exceptionally equipped, down to having loo paper and cleaning products. It was spotlessly clean and comfortable. The welcome gifts of milk, eggs and cakes were very much appreciated and we made used of the free logs for the woodburner.

Previous Customer,
