  • "Mulberry cottage was beautiful, set in the lovely village of Hadleigh."

    Pubs and shops very close by. The cottage felt very homely and was decorated to a very high standard. We had a lovely family stay.

  • "Gorgeous cottage with very friendly neighbour."

    The cottage is very stylish and comfortable. The owner thought about everything, from picnic baskets to throws on the sofas. Beds were very comfortable and Kitchen is well equipped. The owner kindly left some bacon, milk, bread, yogurt and juice (very unexpected but such a lovely gesture). The cottage is super clean (I am very fussy about it). We used it as a base to stay and travelled all over Suffolk. We would love to come back there again.

  • "We were well provided for at Mulberry Cottage - comfortable & clean."

    The generous welcome pack was second to none & much appreciated. In these Corona Virus affected times it was reassuring to see several hand-sanitisers & facemasks for use of guests as yet another example of Stuart's attention to detail. Although our main reason for visiting Suffolk was to visit family we were pleased to find that Hadleigh was so near to Dedham & Constable Country. There are many other places worth a visit but of course Hadleigh itself is delightful. More than one reason to prompt a return!

  • "Lovely cottage in a beautiful, friendly village."

    Furnishings and facilities were really good, and the owner (Stuart) had provided an amazing welcome pack of foods. Really started the week off on a high. A great base to explore the local area.

  • "With Covid 19 in full swing we were unsure what to expect at Mulberry Cottage."

    We were very pleasantly surprised that it was not only the cleanest holiday let we have ever stayed in, but that the little extras that were included like proper welcome pack, masks etc were there. The neighbour was also very friendly and helpful in his recommendations as was Stuart, the owner, in his communications.

    The place itself is absolutely perfect; the location central to the town, the equipment supplied in the cottage was the same as what you would expect at home, the decoration and comforts within the cottage were stunning and the owner was full of knowledge about places to go and things to see locally. We were a couple on a weekend break for our anniversary and I can absolutely say that we will be holidaying there again. Everything ticked every box - thank you for letting us stay in your cottage.

  • "It was a lovely cottage in a lovely location ."

    Owner was helpful and very personable as was neighbour . My only slight criticism would be that we felt it was really a 5 person cottage as middle bed really just a large single and if there had bben 6 of us ( 1 person didnt come ) we would have struggled for beds .

  • "Good location, very close to High Street and within easy driving distance of several interesting and historic Suffolk towns."

    Generous welcome pack and delicious cake. Good quality towels and bedding and comfortable beds. Would be even better if the 3rd bedroom had a wardrobe and bedside tables, but the lack of them would not stop us from booking again. We hope to return next year.

  • "A family get together to celebrate my retirement in May."

    The cottage is stunning and the owner left breakfast and a homemade cake for us. So many extras with this cottage it's hard to remember all of them. The beds are extremely comfortable and everything is spotless. The cottage is a two minute walk from the high street with many pubs and independent shops. We went to The Ram one evening very enjoyable and The Kings Head another, the food was excellent and the atmosphere in The Kings Head was good. Our stay was helped by the weather which was glorious and we were able to see a lot of the nearby Suffolk sights. I would highly recommend this beautiful cottage.

    The beds were extremely comfy and my daughter has been googling to find the exact same duvet as she slept very well. All in all the cottage was perfect and we will be back. The location for us is ideal with family living just around the corner. (Purpose of visit)
