  • "Absolutely lovely cottage!"

    It had everything you needed and more. It was very well equipped and exactly as described. Such a peaceful location but also within easy reach to southwold, walberswick, aldburgh etc. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be back! Will recommend this lovely cottage to friends and family too!

  • "Had such a lovely 5 days in the beautiful cottage enjoyed exploring."

    our first visit to Suffolk. Would definitely revisit and recommend, We brought a small dog the garden is safe for dogs. Amazing shower and comfortable beds. Could not fault this gem. The only thing we missed was being able to walk to a pub in the evening we found they were too far away.

  • "This is a great cottage it’s just a pity our experience was spoilt by the lack of any cleaning or change of bedding and towels when we arrived."

    Also the person I spoke to on the helpline never got back to me and I had to call back to find out what was happening. We went out to eat when we got back it wasn’t much better we did have clean towels and pillow cases but the bedding had not been changed. Not wanting to sleep on used bedding we then had to make a trip to the laundrette to wash and dry the bedding. Not the best start to our stay. Overall the cottage was very comfortable in a quiet location and well equipped.

  • "This is a lovely property, we found it to be warm, comfortable and well equipped."

    Cleaned to a high standard. Good quality bedlinen and towels. Easy to control heating system. Very peaceful and quiet with no passing traffic. On-road parking directly in front of the property was always available. Ideally positioned for exploring coast and country. I'd happily book this property again.

About the location


Halesworth 6.7 miles.

Laxfield is about half-way between the Suffolk market towns of Halesworth and Framlingham, just 40 minutes' drive from the coast at Southwold or Aldeburgh. Just off the main road, called The Street, lies the school and pre-school, the village hall and the Baptist chapel. In the centre, near the wonderful All Saints Church and the historic Guildhall are a thriving modern Co-op store and two charming pubs. Close by, Halesworth is full of character, with old buildings, a weekly market held on a Wednesday and a variety of shops, cafes and restaurants. The beautiful Suffolk Heritage Coastline features unspoilt heathlands and the RSPB Minsmere Nature Reserve, whilst the delightful coastal towns of Southwold and Aldeburgh are all within a short drive. With the cities of Ipswich and Norwich both within touring distance, Halesworth is an ideal location from which to discover Suffolk.
