  • "This is a gorgeous property, beautifully furnished, clean and really well equipped with a real attention to detail."

    We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay and would definitely recommend. Great location too, just a few minutes from Aldeburgh and within easy reach of the beautiful Suffolk coast. Really lovely

  • "This cottage is on a common the post code takes you to the common not the property!"

    We arrived after dark and had great difficulty locating the property a torch was essential as no streets but lanes and pathway. Despite Sykes instruction I feel that people should be aware of this problem. Once located we were very pleased with chapel and and the common in daylight is delightful

    You should have received clear directions about parking which would have helped you, apologies if this didn’t happen. It is best to avoid the postcode as it gets you to the wrong lane. If arriving late park at Knodishall village hall, cross the road and go down the little track between 2 houses directly in front of you and you will get to the chapel. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay once you found it ! Property Owner

    We are so glad you loved the cottage . We love to get down there and enjoy it ourselves and are pleased it had everything you needed . Property Owner

  • "Superb cottage, so clean and well appointed."

    Beds very comfortable and with good quality linen. Big bath towels ( a rare thing based on our experience of other cottages!). Parking not a problem, even when there were no spaces by the church we managed to park on the road. Might be nice to have a couple of cushions for the outside seats for when the weather is good. Only very minor thing we needed to find a solution for was the gate at the front of the cottage, we had to make sure we tied something round the latch as it wasn’t always shutting tightly and our little puppy found it amusing to try and pull the gate open! Other than that we have to say it was a fabulous stay. Thanks you to the owners for taking the time and effort to maintain the high standard.

  • "A real find!"

    Probably the quietest cottage we have ever stayed in: beautifully furnished, with all one could need for a comfortable stay (except for a washing up bowl, which we have donated). We do recommend using the tap in the cupboard for drinking water. It is rare to find a such peaceful place that is accessible by public transport - the bus service between Saxmundham and Leiston/Aldeburgh is admittedly rather infrequent but it is reliable, (there are more buses if you walk through to Aldringham). The common provides peaceful walks. Everyone we met was very friendly, and while there isn't a garden, one can sit in the Methodist church grounds in the sun, listening to the birds. We hope to return before too long.

    Thanks for your feedback (and a washing bowl!) We love the fact that the chapel is in the village yet so quiet and peaceful too., We often have the front door open and barely see a soul come past! We have just added a bench so there is another place to enjoy the peace . We hope to see you back soon. Property Owner

    Difficult to find when you don’t have modern technology as the previous occupant stated in the visitors book we noticed Needs grabrails in the showers for older clients or non slip Bath mats for safety

  • "This has to be one of the best kept and presented cottages we have stayed in."

    Although tere were only two of us, four could stay in comfort and well provided for. We have really enjoyed this light and airy cottage. Its setting is tranquil and gives easy access to the coast communities with Aldeburgh coming out top but with many contenders. Snape Maltings is also worth a visit.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are really pleased you enjoyed the chapel as much as we do. Our aim is to make it a home from home and we think it’s a hidden treasure ! We hope you come back Property Owner
