  • "The house is beautiful and so comfortable."

    You are provided with everything you could need (even a ravioli cutter!). The only thing that would make a stay any better would be a few notes about how to operate the heating and to manage expectations about how long it takes for heat to reach the bottom room, plus a quick note about what can go in the recycling.

    Thank you for your feedback. It is always great to know how much our guests have enjoyed the lovingly restored Bridewell, which the owners take great pride in. We have ensured that there is now an information booklet in the property, and an extra source of heating added to the bottom bedroom to ensure it stays warm through the colder months!

  • "We had a lovely Christmas in the Bridewell."

    The house was just right with its log burner, old beams etc and great facilities. The kitchen is very well equipped, good cooker with 2 ovens open plan with the living room made a good space for cooking and entertaining. We arrived to a Christmas tree and very generous welcome pack . There was plenty of wood for the log burner. We knew there was no parking with the house . There is free on street parking with no time limit approx 10 mins walk away ( near Woodbridge school) more information about available parking in the details would be helpful. There was no guest information folder which is unusual. It would be helpful to have one with instructions for the heating, where the logs are kept , which bins to use and arrangements for recycling etc .

    Thank you for this wonderful feedback. It is fanatstic to hear how much you all enjoyed The Bridewell and all of its brilliant facilities, especially over Christmas. Our apologies that there was no welcome folder with local and property details, we have now ensured that this is in the property. Best of Suffolk. Property Owner

  • "Bridewell House is a beautifully decorated and furnished place, with everything one could possibly want for a stay as a family."

    The welcome pack was really thoughtful, it meant we didn’t need to run to the shops until at least the afternoon following our arrival making for a restful first morning. The location is fantastic. Sykes WhatsApp number was quick to respond and troubleshoot a couple of issues. We would love to say here again

    Thank you for taking the time to leave this lovely feedback. It is wonderful to hear how much you enjoyed your holiday at The Bridewell, and we hope to welcome you back again soon! Property Owner

  • "We enjoyed the stay in Brideswell."

    However, we were disappointed with the parking situation. There was no parking space at the property and on-street parking was limited to 30mins. This was not mentioned in the advertising feature, There was nothing helpful as to the best place to park in the property. I found a carpark some distance away and paid for a full day, and overnight was free from 6pm till 8am. Unfortunately I was a little late getting to the car park after 8am and had incurred a £25 fine. The welcome note gave interesting background information on the property and said that if there were any problems, to contact the housekeeper. Unfortunately no contact details were provided!

    We are pleased to know that you loved your holiday at The Bridewell. Our local team are always happy to help locate free local parking, and as a large medieval town, Woodbridge provide plenty of space for everyone. We will ensure that the correct details and guides are now in the property, and hope to welcome you back again soon. Best of Suffolk. Property Owner
