  • "The cottage is in a lovely location in the woods and total peace and quiet, Lovely walks from the door."

    . Plenty of private parking which is a bonus. The Woodburner was lovely with plenty of wood provided Good communication with Nick and Monica via email. The only down side for us was the constant fuel smell from the boiler which permeated throughout the cottage, The boiler being housed in the kitchen didn't make food preparation a very nice experience ..

    Hello, this is good news about the previous problem of smells intermittently from the boiler - it's now been fixed hooray! We got a new boiler installed on the 15th Feb, and it's working beautifully. The controls are easy to use, and the boiler is outdoors. Nick Property Owner

  • "Warren Cottage is special and perfect for anyone wanting total peace and quiet surrounded by beautiful flora and fauna where you can see the stars at night and hear owls."

    We were shown the fantastic array of mushrooms that grow on the heath absolutely beautiful. The cottage itself has a good feel, warm and cozy and thoughtful basics that most people don’t provide like oil and condiments are. Tiger Hill and the surrounding nature reserve is unique a hidden gem in Suffolk. Whilst the cottage is wonderful the two bathrooms with one toilet is on the ground floor and the two lovely bedrooms upstairs which might be an issue with mobility problems as the stairs are steep and and have a shallow depth. We are in our 70’s and found it no problem.

  • "We had an amazing holiday at Warren cottage."

    Coming from a crowded urban area, it was so relaxing waking up to only the sounds of wildlife. On arrival, the owners had left helpful notes around the house, along with a safety guide so you have a foolproof time away. We really appreciated this personal touch. The cottage itself is charming, perfectly set in the countryside and surrounded by a beautiful garden. The garden is surrounded by trees and woodland which we loved for its secluded feel. The cottage was well equipped with all the utilities and bedding you'll need and includes tea towels which the Sykes website said to bring. Lastly, you have Arger Fen and Tiger Hill on your doorstep. Both beautiful woodlands and very short walks away from the cottage. We loved this as we didn't need to drive everyday to have a great day out. We really didn't want to leave as the cottage and location had such a positive impact on us. Thank you so much for having us and we'll definitely be returning.
