    We have been before and think it’s a great place and surroundings and dog friendly too.

    Sorry about the weather. It was a very wet week which is quite unusual here unfortunately that is out of my control. However I am pleased you were comfortable and your dog enjoyed it too Property Owner

    Cookies and milk with a selection of coffee and tea bags for our arrival and plenty of bin bags, kitchen roll, foil, cling film and other essentials. Nice fluffy towels and comfortable bedroom with plenty of storage. Joan the owner is lovely and welcoming. Village is very nice and shop is within walking distance and has a good selection of groceries. Lovely big park nearby and nice walking routes through the village if your bringing your dog. Highly recommended and will definitely return

    Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay and found everything you needed in the bungalow. It’s really handy having such a good shop just round the corner. Property Owner

  • "The bungalow was lovely."

    It suited us both very well in terms of furnishing, equipment, GARDEN (an absolute delight for us and a dog). (This next is no fault of the property) It is not evident from the information in the brochure before booking that the location is so remote. In many ways this is delightful but in terms of accessing the coast (Southwold, Dunwich and Aldeburgh) just one journey and we only made one coast visit. The location should be more accurately described.

    Thank you for your feedback. It is lovely to hear you enjoyed the garden. I am sorry you found the property further from the coast than you expected but I hope you enjoyed visiting the delightful towns and villages which are closer . Property Owner

Unfortunately the pub close by would not allow dogs even in bar area. However we found various other’s that did within a short drive.

    The cottage is extremely well equipped and spacious, everything we could possibly want was there. The decor is a little dated but good quality, and the comfort made up for it. It’s very peaceful and we slept well in the comfortable king size bed. The gardens are beautiful and gave a luxurious feel to the accommodation. There’s a Spar shop in short walking distance that sold most things. Around the corner is a large almost enclosed rec to exercise us and our dog. There’s a few nice places to eat out if you don’t want to cook. We wouldn’t hesitate to stay again when we’re back in the area, and can highly recommend it.

    The traditional furnishings harmonised with our own tastes and the spacious cottage and it's surroundings oozed peace and calm. The rear of the cottage overlooks a beautiful tree bordered garden and on our last day, the quaint arched bridge traversing their attractive pond played host to a busy kingfisher. A rare and joyous sight... unless you're a fish! To be picky, there were signs of wear and tear but none that detracted from the pleasure of our stay. Joan, our host, is a lovely lady and was very helpful and to anyone looking for a base almost equidistant from Bury, Diss and Thetford in beautiful Suffolk, we would recommend this one.

    The owners were friendly and welcoming but not intrusive. However, it is not as dog friendly as claimed. The position of a gate means that the dog has to be escorted into the garden and then to expect it to be on a lead while in the garden is unfair on both dog and owner. This should be made clear in the property details. I would not hesitate to recommend Berries to non dog owners but not to anyone with a dog.

Lovely and comfortable one bedroom bungalow attached to owner's house in the centre of the village.

This delightful cottage offers excellent accommodation over the ground floor and is ideally located for exploring Suffolk and South Norfolk; perfect for couples and solo travellers looking for a quiet place to stay but with a superb range of things to do nearby.

Entering the property from the front garden, you step into a porch area, leading into a hall where there is a large built-in cupboard that's ideal for storing walking and cycling gear.

The king-size bedroom offers ample space and storage with views over the front garden, whilst the well-equipped kitchen has access to the back garden.

The sitting room which is of a good-size has a dining area and boasts lovely views over the garden with its beautiful pond, so you can enjoy watching wildlife from your window!

During the summer months, why not relax in the garden and catch some sun or enjoy a coffee while planning your day?

The location offers excellent links to beautiful villages by car, foot or bike, where well-deserved refreshments can be enjoyed at one of the many excellent country pubs and cafes on route.

Also the property is situated on a designated cycle route.

For those who love the outdoors, Thetford Forest is nearby, a wonderful area for outdoor activities and events with a high ropes course and excellent off road cycling and walking trails.

When you want to explore further afield Bury St Edmunds is just a short drive away.
