    The location was very pretty and very peaceful. The cottage was clean and comfortable, and we enjoyed the welcome gifts of bread, milk and biscuits.

    The member of staff we met was very friendly and helpful she is an asset to the enterprise. The location was ideal for visiting places such as Flatford Mill, Sutton Hoo, Alborough, Helmingham hall and Framlingham on a market day. An evening wall to Blaxhall is ideal.

  • "This proved to be my ideal holiday cottage with spacious, practical single-level accommodation for one man and his dog."

    The setting was splendid, even better than the photos suggested. Useful information on the property and area was available in the property,plus a money-off voucher for the superb local farm shop. The owner called round to socially introduce herself and ask if everything was OK. It was. I would definitely like to stay there again if the property is available as it is a lovely location to visit several places of note in Suffolk, with some fine country walks on the doorstep.

    We received a lovely friendly welcome, on arrival, plus a welcome pack. The grounds with a pond, swans, ducks, and marsh meadows, with cut walk ways,was excellent.

We had a very relaxing stay, and would certainly stay there again. Marg Barry and our dog Dixie

    When bed is made into double access is poor. I don't particulalry like the area but my wife does so we will be back later in the year. Very windy so I manged to get 3-1000piece jigsaws done in a week. Having lived in suffolk most of my life I rarely visited the East Coast as it has an air of faded gentility and hasn't yet arrived in the 20th century let alone the 21st. Shingle 'beaches' are not to my or my dog's taste, nor is the 10 mile drive to the coast from the awful A12.

  • "The cottage was very welcoming, warm and comfortable."

    All facilities were there, but we noticed a lot of pet hairs on the living room floor and on both rugs. The WiFi, which is becoming essential, was very poor. The password given in the cottage manual did not work for a connection. The welcome pack was a very nice gesture and greatly appreciated. One thing the really stood out for us was the lack of any sort of greeting from the owners, there was a contact number given but that does not mean as much as a face to face with our hosts. we left our comments in the visitor book but for our "complaints" we left a separate note.
