  • "Very enjoyable stay, really nice location."

    Just didn't get chance to swim, as not available when suitable for us.

  • "Wonderful part of the countryside in Suffolk."

    Private woodland walk or meadow walk all on the doorstep, ideal for walking the dog or children. Everything is provided for you in the cottage just bring your food or call at the lovely deli and local shop/post office on the way through Peasenhall. We have used these cottages for several years now and the excitement still remains each time we visit. Beautiful beaches are around 20 mins away where you can park and easily walk to the next location with no hills to climb.

  • "What a lovely cottage."

    Tastefully equipped and furnished, quality beds and bedding, warm and comfortable with everything we could need. Peaceful location. Loved the swimming pool and having a daily booked swim was brilliant, especially with private changing rooms. Really well organised. Loved visiting Southwold, Aldeburgh, Thorpeness, Woodbridge and Halesworth. Has super meals in the Kings Head/Low House in Laxfield. Had a great week thank you!
