  • "The facilities were not up to standard for the number of occupants."

    There was a double oven but only the top oven worked, there were no oven trays at all making it difficult to cook food. While general clean, there were areas that were not up to standard. Apart from that, accommodation/location was good.

  • "The accommodation was not as spacious as it looked on the website photos."

    To say it was for 10 people would have been a bit of a squeeze. There were only 6 of us, plus a baby and there was only room in the downstairs lounge are for 6 people to sit comfortably. Bedrooms were great, lots of space. Only 1 shower for 5 bedrooms, was a bit difficult.

  • "We loved our stay and would certainly return."

    However, we were disappointed in the lack of provisions i.e. no hand towels in the kitchen; no oven gloves; no tea towels (although this was made clear in the email and so we brought our own); only three dishwasher tablets. Wifi was not available at all (it was not intermittent as suggested in the listing). The DVD player did not work. Although the hot tub was lovely and warm, there were no bubbles. As I say, this would not put us off returning, as we are now aware of the lack of provisions. If, however, other guests come and are not aware, it could be quite off-putting.

  • "Suffolk cottage does not have any wifi."

    Luckily got good EE 4G reception but had to buy the kids extra data. Due to covid they have to empty the hot tubs every week, ours was up to temperature by 10pm on day of arrival. Being on a working farm the house was full of flies all the time. We were also unlucky that all the farms seemed to pick our week to muck spread the fields, not the nicest aroma when sat in the hot tub. We still enjoyed our stay but just a few niggles.
