  • "We love it here, we’ve stayed several times now, but this was our first stay in Hayloft."

    We found it very comfortable & cosy indeed. Spotlessly clean (as are all of the other cottages) - and everything provided you could possibly need. The welcome pack of biscuits, bread, milk tea & coffee was most welcome. The only downside was having to leave! We’ll certainly be back. Thank you for providing a perfect holiday.

  • "Have stayed at Ore Valley holiday cottages before and we were not disappointed with our stay at the Hayloft."

    Located in easy reach of areas of interest. Sad to see storm damage to the old barn and hope it can be restored!

  • "Great property and we loved it."

    The owners have made an excellent job of converting these buildings and they ticked all the right boxes. We had everything you could ask for. We were in the Hayloft Cottage. It was cosy, warm, comfortable - and very practical! The people managing this property are very kind and helpful. They even rang me the day before we took over the cottage to check that everything was still okay. If I could give them six stars I would do.

  • "A lovely cottage in beautiful surroundings - spacious, very comfortable and clean."

    We loved the outside area and how we were greeted by the ducks every day - a real treat! The courtyard has many plants and flowers, making the entrance attractive and inviting. The cottage is within easy reach of the beautiful coast and we enjoyed many lovely walks in the area. Loved the Suffolk skies!

  • "At present lighting in bathrooms would not suit anybody epileptic as the dated fluorescent lights flicker for some time until stabilising."

    A small comment but important. An evening stroll around the small lake in the evening watching the ducks is quite enjoyable. Cottages are laid out in such a way that you all have your space. We did not use the games room but it looked useful if the weather was bad. White Lion pub is within walking distance and food and welcome was good.

    We didnt so much like the bedrooms being downstairs, and they were rather gloomy too. Had a good time though

  • "No one made contact with us on arrival or checked that everything was OK."

    However, when we reported a smell of oil this was dealt with promptly and the smell did not come back. Given that a password was provided, we were surprised to find the wi-fi was not secure. Also surprised there was no hairdryer.

  • "As previous visitors we had an understanding of what to expect and these expectations were again met."

    The COVID 19 measures taken to protect guests were welcome and extensive without being intrusive. Everything was as expected and arranged, and we were checked on within an hour of our arrival to find out if everything was ok. Always a peaceful escape from 'reality' Ore Valley Cottages are the only place I have returned to multiple times. Highly recommended.

  • "Nothing else comes to mind - everything was as expected, well-equpipped and arrangements worked well."

    I couldn't find a user guide for the cooker, but that wasn't a particular problem. Was there a vacuum cleaner on site? - I was going to hoover the carpets etc before leaving but couldn't find one around.

    The upstairs lounge and kitchen are roomy and homely with good furniture. The bedrooms are on the small side but very comfortable with good sized en suite bath/shower rooms. The online description of Hayloft is accurate.

    Hot water taps in 3 hand basins were seriously furred up and almost impossible to turn on. Otherwise this was an excellent facility in beautiful surroundings filling all our expectations of rural peace, places of interest to visit and lots of wildlife

    What a lovely surprise to arrive after a long day of travelling to such an idyllic gem in a lovely location. We'd love to come back when we have more time to enjoy the area. We did a baking course in Kenton Hall which was great fun! We left three bread and butter puddings in the fridge as we couldn't travel with them!! Thank you for a wonderful stay, we thoroughly enjoyed it. Dawn & friends.

    It was a great space for us to interact as a family and had plenty of seating for everyone to relax, yet still managed to feel warm and cosy. Bedrooms were a good size. A good base for discovering the area. Internet was a bit slow which might bother some (but not us)

    We were surprised to find faults in the one bathroom, which we would expect to have been known and resolved earlier, but as soon as we reported them they were repaired and everything was fine. We would recommend the property to anyone thinking of visiting the area.
