    It felt spacious and comfortable. The shower room tiles need some attention but everything else was fine. The owner had left a lovely crusty loaf in the bread bin and a bottle of Prosecco in fridge which was lovely. The garden was perfect for 2 dogs and there were dog towels and treats also. The thing I really loved was the view of the illuminated church Spire at night. Just beautiful. Had a nice meal in the pub and everyone seemed friendly. Can’t wait to go back.

  • "The on line description of the property is incorrect."

    It states the property has a shower but the picture of the bathroom shows a bath. I telephoned your company before the holiday to clarify this and was told it had a bath not a shower. As one of our party has mobility issues we nearly cancelled the booking but could find nowhere else to stay in our chosen area. However when we arrived it had a SHOWER so we were pleasantly surprised. I mentioned this discrepancy to the owner as I felt she could lose bookings. As the property is all on one level it is attractive to people with mobility issues. She said she had already asked Sykes to alter the website description but it had not been attended tod. Otherwise the property had excellent facilities. The owner had thought of everything and provided a welcome pack over and above anything we had experienced, The beds were very comfortable as was the seating in the lounge and conservatory, which was also a bonus. All in all, a great property which we would love to return to.

  • "The Property has all it professes to have and is set in a very pretty Village."

    The Welcome Pack was excellent. As dog owners we needed a secure garden which this also had. Unfortunately there were several issues that spoilt the experience in its entirety and in actual fact we vacated the premises a day early on the 23rd. The location is not really on Swan Street it’s off Swan Street down a quite narrow alley. The parking spot existed but if the other shared spots are occupied it’s quite difficult to use. The bed in the property was very firm and I especially struggled to sleep properly. The cleanliness also was not of the standard I would have expected especially with the current Covid scenario .At first glance it’s fine and there were plenty of disinfectant methods available, and then you see the multitude of small things that were missed and could have been cleaned better imo . The light pull cord is especially awful in the bathroom and it would be so easy to replace with new. The toilet seat still is not fixed solidly even though it has been mentioned several times before in feedback. It’s a shame because with a little bit of extra attention this location would have got a five star rating . Unlike previous stayers we would not like to return our standards are obviously different from that required by others.

  • "Our third visit to this wonderful cottage."

    Great to be back. Love the new fences - 9 foot on one side, 8 foot to the back of the garden & then the brick wall on side 3. So secure for even the larger doggies with wanderlust like our Huskies. New bathroom with power shower - excellent. Our Huskies treat this lovely cottage as a home from home, totally relaxed and comfortable from the minute they arrive. The local people are so friendly, everyone says hello & the local shops have everything you could need. The Butcher, just a few doors up from the Cottage is a must visit. The property itself - immaculate, modern, comfortable and having a westerly facing garden you get the last of the sun each evening. We will be booking our fourth visit.

    So often the gardens are advertised as completely enclosed but turn out not to be. The garden was lovely to relax in and we had the best weather we have ever had on holiday.to enjoy it. There were two minor issues in that the place was infested with flies. we have no idea were they came from but a can of spray put that right. Also, we found good walks for the dog but we were not confident in getting to some walks because to get to the footpaths, which relied on walking on a fairly busy road with no pavement and a rather frisky dog . However, that was just us, others may not find that a problem.

About the location

BOXFORD

Lavenham 9.4 miles; London 76.6 miles.

Boxford is a beautiful, medieval, Suffolk town steeped in history and home to the oldest shop in England and a garage which claims to be the oldest garage in Europe. There is a selection of essential independent shops with an excellent butchers, general store, coffee shop and three excellent pubs to choose from, one of which accepts dogs. The area is a popular one for cyclists with the official Cycle route passing through and a very active cycling club and a wonderful base for walkers to explore the endless network of footpaths. The official Cycle route passes through Boxford and if you are a real cycling enthusiast it also has a very active cycling club. The outstanding feature of this area is that it is so very rural and pretty with tiny medieval hamlets and small villages dotted along a spiderweb of single track lanes, that even the locals get lost in. It really is amazing that this beautiful region is just an hour and a half from London.
