The Ufford Park Hotel has a well-regarded golf-course and excellent spa.

Fabulous property in beautiful surroundings. Our first visit to this area and thoroughly enjoyed it. Very warm welcome from the owners - would highly recommend.

Mr David W,

We loved everything about the property

Previous Customer,

Lovely to be back again (Last visit in 2016). Peter and Jane congratulations your attention to detail is perfection. You have truly thought of everything, a masterclass in how a holiday cottage should run. We have had a lovely, relaxing and comfortable stay. We have revisited some of our favourite places and discovered new ones like the Red House in Aldeburgh and the River Blyth at Walberswick. The weather has been very mixed so it has limited what we did. We enjoyed seeing the bats at dusk, but havent seen the Barn Owl this time. We had two very good meals at the Coach & Horses in Melton and can recommend the Bell Inn, Walberswick for lunch as well as the Magpie Bakery in Aldeburgh for tea. We have had a lovely relaxing and comfortable stay in a wonderful cottage we will recommend to friends. We will be back.

Previous Customer,

We are so pleased that we decided to extend out stay by a further 2 nights. Such a beautiful place - we love Suffolk - the peace and tranquility here is beautiful. Thank you for your hospitality Jane & Peter. We have enjoyed every minute including some good meals out at The Unruly Pig, The Crown and The Markert in Aldeburgh. Loved the Red House and Snape Maltings. We very much hope to come back another time. A huge thank you!! Oh and love Willow she made us feel very at Home!

Ann & P,

Had a lovely stay here at The Stables, very comfortable and beautiful place. The hosts Peter & Jae very friendly and accomodating. Lots to do in this area, you need a second visit. Lauren suggested fish n chips at Aldeburgh and also the village of Lavenham, both great, definitely recommend a visit. Thanks

Deb & C,

A lovely stay at The Stables, coupled with sunny weather. Very comfortable place to stay, superbly appointed. Places to recommend visiting - Red House, Benjamin Britten's home, do not miss the talks given in the Archive room - absolutely fascinating, and The Unruly Pig lovely pub & food excellent.

Sally & P,

Excellent cottage maintained to a very high standard. Clean, well equipped and comfortable in a quiet and relaxing location.

Dr Andrew S,

Our second visit and just as relaxing as the first. Lovely cottage and surroundings and perfect location for walking and cycling. Thanks for the welcome pack and all the little touches - they are very much appreciated.

Michele & A,

Thanks for everything. We have had a great time. The White Lion was like going back in time - wonderful!

Joy & P,

We would thoroughly recommend The Stables. Spacious, comfortable and bright and equipped to a high standard. We had a warm welcome from the owners. Location excellent for coast and countryside. We hope to return to enjoy some sunshine in the pretty courtyard garden.

Past Customer,

Very relaxing break as The Stables - love it and the sunhouse was a lovely bonus. All over too soon but hope to be back. The Stables has been very well done and great equipment, thank you

Philip & L,

Everything was perfect, Beautiful and luxurious. We will be back. Best wishes.

Lynn & L,

Our first visit to this area - have been both north and south before. Arrived to a warm welcome but suffering from heavy colds. Spent a lot of time at Landguard Fort Felixstowe viewpoint - fascinating watching the container handling. MInsmere worth a visit and shingle street quite different as was Orford. Cottage very comfy, warm and well equipped - the conversion has been really well done with best of fittings and equipment. Local pubs good, Coop in Woodbridge very handy with good parking. Hope to return again, beautiful property looking forward to coming back, lovely garden. Thank so much for everything - the welcoming cake, chocolates, prosecco & Flowers for Valentines Day.
