  • "We absolutely enjoyed our stay."

    Carriage House converted barn was lovely set in a beautiful area. We met a couple of the neighbours who had three dogs. They were very friendly and told us about the area and good restaurants. It was so peaceful just what we were after. All the facilities were great. Everything we needed was there. It might have been nice just to meet the owners at some stage The only thing we hadn’t realised was how open the garden was. Luckily I didn’t take my little dog in the end. We just took my boyfriends older dog who sleeps most of the time. Fantastic stay would certainly book again. Thank you.

  • "A beautiful little property that had everything we wanted and more."

    The bathroom in particular was spectacular and even the shampoo/shower gels left for us were high quality. We were staying in Bruisyard for a wedding so didn’t get to spend too much time in the house but we both said how we’d happily come back and stay in the same property if we were ever in Bruisyard again!

    Thank you for your kind comments, hope to see you again. Property Owner

  • "Fabulously quiet, peaceful and relaxing."

    Surroundings are brill, outside patio is great to sit and watch/listen to nothing but birds and the countryside. Clean and modern albeit all-in-one loft living/eating/sleeping space which whilst not ideal for me, not a drama. One thing might be worth remedying ( with some form of cushioning device) is the low stair stringer rail in the living area which for anyone over 6’ 2” forgetting that it’s low after a few Vinos can be a pain after several times banging head and poking oneself in the eye! Just worth a mention. Overall a lovely place in a great location and I will definitely go back.

  • "The location is beautiful and a true get away."

    The cottage is well equipped and very clean. The surrounding area provides lots to explore with areas of historical and natural beauty. This cottage provides the ideal base to get away from everything but also explore. We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend.

    Thank you for your lovely comments, so glad you had a great time. Property Owner

  • "We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful cottage!"

    It is located in a rural location in the stunning Suffolk countryside and is very peaceful. It is so lovely to sit outside and listen to the birds and also do a jigsaw indoors on a rainy day. The cottage is in an excellent location close to many nature reserves, beaches and heaths as well as quality eating pubs and restaurants for a treat. We had a truly special holiday and hope to stay again in the future. Thank you! :)
