Guest Reviews


    • “Fabulous peaceful location”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Punch cottage is part of a converted stable block on a working farm. The countryside location is fantastic and the accommodation very good indeed. We went with our daughter, son-in-law, 20 month old granddaughter and dog. Everyone enjoyed their stay enormously. The cottage is comfortable with a very well equipped kitchen and a BBQ in the communal courtyard. Because the grounds and views are so beautiful & outdoor tables are provided we ate in nearly every night except when we had fish & chips in Aldeburgh! There is a play area with swings, slide & climbing frame as well as a couple of large sit & ride tractors next to the cottages, which our granddaughter loved. There is also a Games room with table tennis, snooker table & numerous board games, plenty to keep everyone amused. The very large pond in the grounds proved to be very attractive to our dog as we had a hot week but luckily the owners do not mind this. I think that this is one of the most dog friendly cottages we have stayed in with lovely walks across the farm where well behaved dogs are allowed to be off the lead. The local pub which is about a mile away is very welcoming and there are plenty of places to eat out if you want to. All in all we would thoroughly recommend Punch Cottage to any family.”

    • “A dog's paradise”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “It is becoming harder to find good accommodation that allows pets these days. Punch Cottage allows two dogs, so was an excellent choice for us, two couples with a dog each. It truly is a paradise for dog owners away from home, with no restrictions on the lovely walks within the grounds, all safe and manageable. The cottage is part of a small complex of five properties, all sizes, private yet still sociable. It is furnished in a comfortable style, well equipped and with dog friendly floors. Hanging space in the bedrooms is very limited but the beds are excellent! The last point is very important as we have stayed in properties where the quality of the beds is the last consideration and it can often spoil an otherwise good holiday for those with back issues! We had good weather, plenty to do and a fun week.”

    • “We have just spent a lovely week at Punch Cottage. It is located just off the A12, north of Woodbridge. It's a modern barn conversion, part of 5, and my mother loved the fact that she had the original harness hooks in her bedroom! Cleaned up of course!! It deserved it's 5 star rating as it was spotless, nicely furnished, not too showy so you felt at home. The kitchen had everything we needed, including tea, coffee, bread and milk which was a bonus. A lovely start to the holiday. Both bedrooms were comfortable if a little lacking on hanging space in one room. The bathrooms were generously proportioned too. The owners were very helpful and friendly. We had a problem at first with wifi, but that was sorted. A warning to people with Apple, my iPad could not pick up the wifi but the laptop did? Not a problem to 3 pensioners but may be a factor for others. If booked throug Sykes please be aware that your Satnav will take you to the next farm and also that the complex is called Ore Valley, which is not mentioned on the directions sent. The main accommodation is on the first floor, which gives amazing views over the surrounding area, consisting of a huge pond/lake which was occupied by swans, ducks and canad geese. Mesmerising watching them come and go. The 5 units had joint use of a well equipped laundry room, including washing line and a games room with table tennis, games etc. Being so close to the A12 all local visits were easy to find. Sutton Hoo was my favourite but there were plenty of places to visit within an hour's drive. All in all a fabulous place to spend a week, not matter what your age.”

    • “This was a lovely complex. Very private despite the other cottages. Thoroughly deserved its rating.”

    Mrs Johnston, Tunbridge Wells, October 2015

    • “A lovely cosy, well appointed cottage which was very comfortable, clean and welcoming. The gardens were stunning and the views to die for.”

    Mrs Fletcher, Whitstable, September 2015

    • “A very comfortable cottage set in lovely grounds. In a very good location for exploring the Suffolk coast.”

    Mrs Hartley, Sutton, July 2015

    • “The position is idyllic for walkers and is very dog friendly with a beautiful garden, lake and a large enclosed area where dogs can be let free, as well as designated short walks around. The accommodation is perfect, very comfortable with every facility you could wish for. The owner made us very welcome upon arrival. The kitchen is very well equipped and there is a great choice of local restaurants and pubs all within easy reach. I would highly recommend Punch Cottage to anyone as there is also a playground for children with a games room, and everything has been thought of. All in all, perfect.”

    Mr Young, Peterborough, June 2015

    • “Top notch accommodation, it was well appointed & lacked nothing. Glorious setting & surrounding countryside. We were on a walking holiday & found loads of walks in the locality, there were also plenty of good restaurants in the area. The owners were very discreet but always available if needed.”

    Mr Young, Peterborough, June 2015

    • “The property was so well equipped, the owners had thought of everything. The beds were so comfortable and the place was spotless. The games room, play area and grounds were also wonderful. Absolutely thrilled with our stay.”

    Mr Gandy, Hockley, May 2015

    • “Excellent quiet location and outlook over the pond. Having the games room is a good insurance policy for bad weather though we didn't require it as we were out walking every day in excellent weather for the time of year. All the Suffolk highlight towns and villages are within an easy drive. Walks can be taken from the Cottage and it's possible to do lovely circular coastal walks with fantastic views.”

    Mrs Harris, Abbots Langley, September 2014

    • “How does one improve on perfection. Excellent holiday! Will be using Sykes again without doubt. Roll on next year. Many thanks!”

    Mr Elton, Farnham, September 2014

    • “One of the best cottages we have stayed in. The owner was very helpful and the games room was an absolute bonus. A lovely quiet location with excellent views yet close enough to the local attractions so as not to feel isolated in the country. A place we would fully recommend and would return to.”

    Mr Kellam, Oakham, July 2014

    • “The cottage was lovely as were the gardens around the property. The facilities were well thought out. The games room was well stocked with a wonderful variety of games available. The owners also provided a BBQ. As an added bonus the weather was brilliant! The owners were also very helpful.”
