  • "My Husband and I have just spent a week in Mulberry Cottage, it is a wonderful place to stay in, there is everything you could possibly need for your stay."

    Stuart left us a lovely welcome pack, to start our holiday including a beautiful display of flowers, so very kind and thoughtful. The Cottage is in a very central position, for Shops and Pubs, we had some lovely meals in the George, the Cock Inn is only about 100 yards from the house, it is a nice Pub with nice people running it. The weather was not on our side, but it was so nice and comfortable in the Cottage, it did not matter, we would like to return in the near future. Review by Pat & Daphne Byrne.

    Very comfortable, everything you could possibly need has been supplied. Very stylish decor. Cottage has a cute, safe little garden with outdoor furniture just right for those warm days.

  • "Mulberry Cottage is delightful, with a cohesive interior design."

    Exceptionally clean with quality fittings. Comfortable beds and plenty of towels. Generous welcome pack and the cheery sunflowers to greet us a nice touch. Initial contact with owner Stuart instilled confidence that all would be well and that any problems (of which I hasten to add we had none) would have been sorted promptly. Stuart was extremely friendly and informative. The cottage itself is well situated with plenty to see and do within easy reach.

  • "The property was spacious and extremely comfortable."

    It was very well equipped and the host provided a generous welcome pack which included local produce. The bacon, sausages and eggs were especially appreciated! Stuart, the host, was most welcoming and proved to be a mine of useful information and gave helpful advice regarding local events and towns and villages which were worth a visit. The cottage was ideally located for us when visiting family in the area and we intend to return in spring next year. We have no hesitation in recommending this property which is located within easy walking distance of Hadleigh Town centre.

    Beautifully presented, comfortable and a pleasure to stay in. Stuart had thought of everything, tissues in every room, complimentary bath products, plenty of fluffy towels & a very generous welcome pack to start off our holiday, which included local produce. The property is very close to the local amenities, so we couldn't have had a better location. We were delighted with it, and couldn't recommend it highly enough!

  • "Lovely cottage, enjoyed sitting in the garden and well placed for us as we were involved in the Suffolk Villages Festival over the August bank holiday weekend and two of the concerts were in the church in Hadleigh so an easy walk from the cottage for rehearsals and performances."

    Stuart was a very helpful and attentive host. Fantastic local food and drink to welcome us in the fridge, a lovely surprise and much appreciated! Would have liked something different at the bathroom window upstairs (e.g. shutters/Venetian blind so the slats could be angled for privacy/light) as glass wasn’t obscured so had to have the blind down more or less all the time, but a minor detail really. Very comfortable all round plus superb weather so made for a lovely relaxing break.

  • "We loved staying in this homely little cottage."

    We arrived in 30 degree weather and it was a relief to enter a fan cooled living area. Stuart had provided an incredibly generous welcome pack of food, drink and fresh flowers. The accommodation was clean, comfortable and well equipped, with an abundance of information on locations to visit in the nearby area. Hadleigh high street was only a short walk away with quaint buildings and a great range of shops. There is also a nice little river walk beyond the town. Bury St Edmunds market and abbey ruins were worth the drive, as were Frinton-on-Sea and the beautiful scenery at Flatford Mill.

Hadleigh is a lovely little town all within easy reach on foot. Beds are very comfortable and showers work well. And the locals made us very welcome! Roger, the lovely neighbour took us for a pint and game of darts at the Cock Inn and gave us a list of places to visit. A week wasn't long enough! Thank you

    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.

We used it as a base to stay and travelled all over Suffolk. We would love to come back there again.

    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!
