  • "Quaint old fashioned cottage but with top of the range kitchen appliances and wide range of equipment."

    Bathroom could be improved and perhaps a new sofa in lounge.

  • "Although cosy a bit too cluttered with pictures (82) & ornaments."

    could do with wardrobe for clothes .settees & chairs uncomfortable. could do with 2 settees rather than one & tub chairs. Shower a bit difficult to get temperature right & struggle with shower curtain. would benefit from walk in shower. loads of books,advice etc . didn't realize it hadn't wifi so would stop again because of this. location good.

    It was an extremely well equipped cottage, there was nothing that you wanted for. The thoughtful things on arrival were very much appreciated, like the teabags milk and sugar, so you could have a drink if you hadn't got your shopping on the way, not to mention the cookies and wine. It was very central for all the things that we wanted to do in Suffolk and we had a very enjoyable holiday.

  • "Although the property was as listed, we are disappointed that the owner told us there may be a little work going on in the next property."

    In actuality there were a number of workmen every day from 8.00 am to 5.00 pm, banging and sawing etc. There was also no mention of the social club opposite that had a band on the Saturday evening that lasted until 1.30 am. Not exactly a restful time
