“Hi it was the lounge furniture old and very uncomfortable apart from that nice cottage.”
“Great location near to main road.”
Lots of wildlife,very quiet and peaceful.
“Extremely relaxing and peaceful environment.”
Francis and Julie made us very welcome which we would like to say a big thank you. The wildlife on the farm was great, monk jack deer, pheasants, hares and a variety of birds. Will be visiting again.
“This cottage is warm and comfortable with everything you need .”
Although the decor is quite dated this dies not detract from the overall positive experience and it certainly represents value for money. The garden is great with a lovely outlook, plenty of wildlife to look at and securely enclosed so you can relax when you let your dog out. This is a working farm so you do get associated noises from the animals but you also get plenty of privacy and it is generally quite peaceful and relaxing.
“This is the 3rd or 4th time we have booked our holiday through Sykes cottages and we have never been disappointed by either the cottages or the service.”
“A bit off the beaten track but a wonderfully comfortable cottage”
Spacious, well equipped and very comfortable. Dog friendly with its own garden (fully fenced so safe for dog to play in). Owners very friendly and helpful. Many excellent eating establishments within a short drive but because of the excellent cooking facilities at the cottage we did most of our own catering.
“Such a good time”
Spacious rooms in a lovely cottage - the view from the back windows is full of beauty and wild-life. Inside, the cottage has enough of everything. we enjoyed the geese in the yard. There are so many places to visit and enjoy - Eye is elegant. Stowmarket's Museum of East anglian life is well done. Diss - go on market day, Friday, : there's a good street market: and the auction market, just five minutes walk away from the centre, is quite wonderful. Bury St Edmunds and Southwold good day excursions, and very different from each other. The best discovery were the windmill and watermill at Packenham. The wonderful weather helped. But we would have enjoyed it enormously whatever the weather. We like to be off the beaten track, and we know when we are near our destination when there's grass in the middle of the road. Lovely walks too but we were not able to walk any distances because of our knees. An Ordnance Survey Map will enhance your enjoyment.
“Peaceful setting with a lovely garden”
Well presented, large & very clean cottage. The owners were friendly but left us to get on with our holiday. There were quite a few eating places within a short drive & the food was of a high standard.we did quite a lot of touring & the cottage was central to where we wanted to visit. Highlight of the hol was woodpeckers feeding on the bird feeder.
Friendly warm welcome .Really liked the bothy so comfy and cosy .Loved the vase of fresh Daffodils on kitchen table . Will definitley go again when we do the area again.
We thought the Bothy was absolutely ideal for our type of holiday. There are plenty of walks and cycle rides and after a day of this it was lovely to come back to this lovely, well-equipped cottage. When everything is provided like this it is so easy to relax at the end of the day
“Fit for purpose”
Have now stayed here twice and may well return. As a base for visiting friends in Norfolk and Suffolk, and also for house-hunting in the area, it's ideal. It's plain and unpretentious, but has everything one needs for a very comfortable stay.
“Wonderful, Relaxing and Peaceful experience”
We had a late break looking to have a relaxing time to relieve some stress. Worked a treat. Owners were great and left us alone to do what we wanted. Found plenty of intereting places to visit. Within an hour of the coast. Several nice places to eat when you did not want to cook.
“everything you need on your doorstep. lovely walks with the dogs”
brilliant service, secluded garden for our dogs to play safely everything you needed well equipped in the kitchen. warm and comfortable plenty of walks and good pub food. the freedom it gave us with our dog shamus and our puppies harold and bailey.loved every minute we were there
“Quiet farm cottage close to everything...”
The Bothy is a big as a house, with everything we needed for an thoroughly enjoyable stay. The owners were terrific. The location for sightseeing in the region is superb.
“Peace, quiet and relaxation”
A very comfortable holiday stay in a beautiful location. Suffolk has so much to offer from 'chocolate box villages' to the fun of the seaside. Our dogs loved the Bothy as much as us. We will certainly be going back.
We enjoyed everything about this holiday, the accommodation was excellent and the surrounding areas beautiful. The house was very spacious and comfortable with lovely gardens. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly.
“Comfortable, welcoming cottage in idyllic surroundings”
Clean, warm, well-equipped, deceptively spacious cottage with friendly owners next door. Situated on a working farm with fabulous open aspect to the rear. Dog friendly, with enclosed rear garden area; good outdoor space for sitting and eating, or just relaxing. Wildlife spotting a bonus. Well situated for touring Suffolk. Beautiful small towns and villages around with good road networking. Bonus late holiday, loads of fruit ripe for picking in the garden.
