    “We had the most amazing stay at TOCH - the reality of the place exceeds the photographs.”

    It was so clean and Pat and Tony had everything in the house to make your stay like ‘home from home’. The area has a lot to offer - pub opposite the house ( not noisy ) and great food. The area offers multiple walks all on your doorstep! Blythburgh church at the bottom of the road and well worth a visit - 1100 every Thursday is a free guided tour by someone in the village and really informative!

    It was so clean and Pat and Tony had everything in the house to make your stay like ‘home from home’. The area has a lot to offer - pub opposite the house ( not noisy ) and great food. The area offers multiple walks all on your doorstep! Blythburgh church at the bottom of the road and well worth a visit - 1100 every Thursday is a free guided tour by someone in the village and really informative! Southwold is less than 10 mins drive away and a beautiful seaside town with lots of beautiful shops. Sutton Hoo abs Dunwich Heath( national trust ) all worth a visit. I would defiantly be coming back again for some R&R - beds so comfortable and a beautiful garden to relax in.
