We loved this place. They have literally thought of everything we needed. It's hard to find a place of high standard to stay with dogs that have a hot tub. The lodge is beautiful and spacious in a perfect area. There is a gated decked area so we could let the dogs out without worrying that they was going to disappear. There are some great walks all round the lodge so again it was perfect for the dogs. We were given a lovely hamper with lots of treats, some handy basics like bread milk and eggs and even a bottle of wine, we wanted for nothing ! With all the stress of the coronavirus star...more
A comfortable and cosy cottage in lovely surroundings. Walks straight from the doorstep and in a great location for exploring South Suffolk.
Our stay here was wonderful. My favourite thing about Higham Place Lodge is the feel of the space, it is so welcoming, light and cosy. The lounge is very comfortable and spacious and there are lots of good book to browse. We brought our two retrievers and it was lovely to be able to open the lounge doors and know they had a large secure garden to explore. It was also so lovely to be able to walk them off-lead just beyond our garden around the 15acre estate. So many good dog walks around the area too which we will have to come back and explore more! I could not fault our hosts who gave us space...more
We had a wonderful New Years break with close friends at the Old Post Office. The property is beautiful & intimate. Our toddler had a fantastic time exploring the house and all it’s charm and we loved relaxing by the fire and cooking together. Hosts were very helpful and welcoming. Fully recommend.
This was our after Christmas long recovery weekend . Ideal little cottage for us and our dog Tilly. We know Suffolk well so an ideal location.
The Buttery was perfect for the short, away-from-it-all break I was looking for... and the views over fields and woods were wonderful. The cottage (one of three rental properties) is a great mix of clean modern design and rustic charm, and while it's set on a working farm, it's very quiet. I enjoyed my morning chats - tea in hand - with the cows in the paddock around the corner!
Fab cottage! Very comfortable beds and very well equipped! Especially good location and really enjoyed my stay.
The cottage has everything you could ever possibly need for a break away. It’s well equipped. Lovely touches with a food hamper and bathrobes. Plenty of space and the old quaint feel of the cottage is ideal for a relaxing away from it all break.
We had an absolutely fabulous weekend staying at the Scrumpy Shed. It started out on a very wet and windy weekend but despite the weather, inside the Shed it was super warm and cosy. The shed has been beautifully designed, with lovely little touches everywhere. It's very well kitted out with a comfy bed and an amazing wood burning stove that warmed the Shed up in no time. There was tea, coffee and even a home made cake with marshmallows. It was exceptionally clean and well maintained. You can see a lot of love has gone into this place. The Shed itself is in a beautiful rural part of Suffolk, a...more
Our stay at Lodge Farm was a great success Recommend as a place to stay - we were a party of 12 adults There was so much room , all bedrooms lovely, kitchen well equipped to cope with cooking for 12 adults Close to local pub and Suffolk food hall
Whilst sitting on the porch of the shepherd's Hut with my coffee, I could easily envisage a couple more huts scattered throughout the cluster of trees we were in. It would be lovely to have a handful of friends join you especially as the rustic table and chairs cater for 4 but the hut offers space for 2, and the fire pit is a great idea, so a social getaway with a few friends would be enhanced if there were a few more huts It's quirky, well laid out and the porch is welcoming and social. The sounds of wildlife as well as farm life make you feel like you have escaped the city/town hustle an...more
Myrtle is a lovely cottage in a beautiful place. The kitchen is a wonderful place to start the day, with a coffee, no matter what the weather is like. One of the best places I have stayed in the UK.
Nice location within Leiston, convenient for shops, Sizewell and other walks. The cottage itself was immaculately clean, very comfortable beds, and a lovely light, pleasantly decorated interior. We enjoyed our stay there immensely and would have no hesitation in booking it again for another stay.
We were very pleased with the River View property. Nice and bright with modern furnishings. We kept warm and cosy indoors. Cooked plenty of meals in and everything we needed was provided. Great views from the windows. Good location close to the town and walks nearby.
We had booked months before coronavirus hit the UK and this was the perfect place to hide away from it.
The Lodge is a spacious, clean, warm and well equipped holiday cottage. We had a lovely few days and would have loved to have sat outside on the decking had it not been for the inclement weather. But it was still nice to watch the horses from inside. Stupidly left a hat behind which was not easy to post, but Mary kindly dealt with it, and was returned well packaged. Thank you.
Lovely home with everything you could need and more. There was nothing to find fault with and would love to stay again.
Excellent location a few minutes' walk from the high street and beach. Comfortable, spacious and clean. A great base to enjoy Aldeburgh.
We had a lovely week in Nil Desperandum in January. Comfy, clean and warm - lovely cottage. The cottage is perhaps smaller than you'd imagine from the pics and there are a few beams to trouble taller people. I hung a plastic bag from the one in the living room to remind me to duck. Garden is lovely although we didn't really use it because of the weather. I think it would be a really nice place to relax in summer. The decking was a bit slippery in the wet - perhaps a warning sign would be appropriate - saves potential problems? Our dog enjoyed running in the back garden but as an accomplish...more
We stayed for a family wedding. Arrived late in evening to a wonderful welcome basket full of local treats. The house and beds were extremely comfortable. Very much appreciated the second large family fridge! We had a really lovely time there and would definitely return. Thank you, it was a lovely peaceful and delightful spot.
This was our second stay at Marsh Lodge (River View last time on our own - this time we were in Marsh View and our friends were in River View). It is an excellent place to stay, both in terms of position and comfort.
We have stayed in Aldeburgh at this time of year many times. Sadly 7 Brudenell was disappointing. We arrived at 9pm assuming we would have some sort of welcome pack, we had apple juice and a packet of crisps. Milk for tea, wine to unwind? would have been nice. The house wasn't that clean, dusty in places, taps etc not as clean as they could have been. Also no kitchen roll in the kitchen. Our 'outside area' where we could enjoy the evening sun was approx 1m square - two of us would have to stand to enjoy the evening sun, had 7 of us been in the house it would be like a tin of sardines! We e...more
Had a lovely stay at Marsh View although we arrived during a huge storm which meant we lost our water, heating and electricity for a day. The owners were very kind and helpful throughout, trying to ensure all our needs were met. The apartment was clean and comfortable, and the bed was divine. The lounge furniture was good, but not so comfy for a cosy night in. Marsh View was well equipped, however if you are using it as self catering, the kitchen was a bit lacking preparation space with limited kitchen tops. Location was perfect to explore the nature reserves on the Suffolk coast and surr...more
A fab little find, 30 seconds from main street. That said very quiet and peaceful. A cosy well equipped cottage that would suits all, small family or a couple of adults. Great places to eat and the beach is beautiful. We had my 18 month old grandaughter with us who had whale of a time, the owners were also very good and replaced a high chair at very short notice for us. Definately will be returning 10/10 from these happy holidayers!
This is third time/year we have stayed at number 25 and basically 2021 will be our fourth. Just fabulous. Excellent location for Marsh walk or beach walk. Perfect location for walking into high street to get what you need. Great places to eat out.
Perfect cottage with all the mod-cons and large grounds for walkies. only a minor issue with previous customers dog poop in garden (6 poop bags ;) Would defo use cottage again.
Picture postcard cottage in a very rural setting. Access to bedrooms is typically tricky for old cottages but it does warn you of that. Has a shower room but very cramped, but the upstairs bath would take a very long time to fill! Great location with a dog.
We had a wonderful stay at Rose Barn this winter. It was warm and cosy, specially with the wood burner on! It is well equipped, clean and welcoming, and had everything we needed. Our hosts were helpful and communicative. Would definitely recommend! We would love to be back in the summer when the pool is open.
The Old Rectory has a very homely feel, which is not always found in holiday properties. Once we'd found it (!), the house has four very large bedrooms, 3 doubles and a twin with king size beds and a brilliant sunlight streaming through the large windows. (We had picked a good weather week). There are two bathrooms, one with a shower cubicle but the baths themselves are large enough for the occupant to stretch out. Downstairs there is a small kitchen with low beams - you'd probably need to duck if you were much over six feet tall- but well equipped with a double oven, electric hob, microwa...more
A very comfortable and well equipped cottage in a lovely location. The weather was chilly & just at the end of Storm Dennis but inside was warm and cosy, with the added benefit of a wood burner if we wanted to be extra toasty. Views of the fabulous Blythburgh church lit up up at night provided a lovely backdrop. We can recommend the short walk to the White Hart for tea and good local beer (Adnam’s of course). Blythburgh is a great location for visiting the Suffolk coastal area, with plenty to do and see. Minsmere RSPB reserve is worth a day trip out if you enjoy wildlife spotting - as well as ...more
We stayed here over Christmas with our 4 children and dog. We had a very enjoyable time. It is a beautiful property with a well equip kitchen. Towels and toiletries were all provided. The location is beautiful set in the suffolk countryside and approximately 30 minutes from Colchester which we visited a few times.
Super location, lovely little village with very friendly people in stunning countryside. The pull out kitchen worked well, the only thing is that we would normally get two bedrooms at this price, other than that we thoroughly enjoyed the stay and the owners were delightful.
Beautifully situated and very cosy and atmospheric. Converted with design flair and furnished generously. Good bedding, well-equipped kitchen with plenty of scope for the keen cook, squishy sofa, etc. Cleanliness upon arrival could have been better, especially given the email we received about deep cleaning due to Coronavirus! The guest bed is pretty firm but the main room is v comfy. Bathroom let down by strong smell of mildew.
Lovely clean and atmospheric cottage but very remote. Car essential. Suit friends looking for plenty of space for a long weekend away
The Gildhall is well located in a quiet rural hamlet and the house was warm and comfortable for our party of three adults. It's a great base for exploring the area but be aware there are no shops or pubs in close walking distance. The Farm shop at nearby Dedham stocks a great range of items and the welcome hamper left on the kitchen table was much appreciated. The kitchen was beautifully warm with a roaring Aga and the central heating kept the sitting room, dining room and bedrooms cosy. This was important, as we were advised a few days before arrival that the open fires can no longer ...more
Lovely property with the most amazing views from the kitchen/diner/lounge. Tranquil and relaxing, away from it all - a very pleasant stay, and the agent was most helpful too.
My stay at the woodland retreat lodge was very nice and was good to have a short brake away from reality. The pubs served amazing food but if you plan on cooking maybe just small easy meals as it is not a proper oven and hob. The place was very cozy with amazing views and lots to do round there. However if you use you’re phone a lot then just have data as there was very weak or no WiFi which we wasn't fussed by, other than that we had an amazing brake away and would definitely recommend.
The owner of The Granary had been away for a couple of weeks and only returned halfway through our stay so no one had cared for the plants in pots which looked beyond redemption and we suspect that less care had been put into the preparation of the cottage. However the cottage is very comfortable and ideally situated for touring in the Woodbridge area.
Beautiful views and an interesting conversion of old farm buildings. The play room with table tennis was great especially for children but the advertised snooker was very poor and no useful cues. We were lucky to have no one staying in the adjoining properties as this liberated more play space. The greatest surprise was having an open plan lavatory and bath in the master bed room. This would have been so easily walled off during the conversion rather than just a wooden shelf as partial barrier. This also meant there was no wardrobe or cupboard for clothes in that bedroom. The lounge, kitchen a...more
