Everything we wanted provided by lovely people in a really interesting environment. Loads to do in the area, stately homes and pretty villages, and country pubs galore.
Loved it! Peaceful relaxed location.Top quality fixtures and fittings.Plenty of kitchen equipment if you want to cook but loads of excellent places to eat within an easy drive. Would just say need a little more storage space for a weeks worth of clothes.
Lovely cottage near the centre of the village. Very well renovated and decorated, very comfortable. Helpful owner and neighbour gave us plenty of advice on things to see and do. Would visit again!
A comfortable and cosy cottage in lovely surroundings. Walks straight from the doorstep and in a great location for exploring South Suffolk.
We had a fabulous week at the Woodshed - we were lucky with the weather too! The barn is lovely with beautiful decor and furnishings - all in keeping with the farm/countryside setting. There is a great little gravel garden which we enjoyed - on one evening Becky brought the BBQ around for us to use and from the front seating area we had views over the fields and the horses. A great location for exploring Suffolk, the coast is easily accessible as are some great inland market towns. Becky and her husband were so welcoming (the goodies and fizz were much appreciated!) and were always availab...more
We had a wonderful stay at Wakes Hall. Absolutely fabulous 10/10. The view from the lodge is to die for and the lodges are so wonderful, clean, comfy, cosy & very tastefully decorated. Also we have a hot tub at home and im very fussy when it comes to using a rental but I was extremely pleased with it 10/10 well done to the tub maintenance man.
A lovely relaxing break away from this years hassles. Owners very friendly and helpful. Beautiful views.
A lovely family cottage for a weeks holiday. Everything we needed was provided ,including a lovely stash of goodies to get us through the first day, very thoughtful. Bright cheery accommodation with a beautiful garden and grounds. We could not have wanted more ...clean and comfortable.
The best little getaway you could ask for, perfect scenery and perfect location! So close to lots of beaches and a place to go if you’re looking for a quiet chilled break! Could not recommend this place enough!
This was our second visit to No 22. The comfy sofas and fabulous log burner were a much needed treat. after long walks in the chilly weather. The beds & linen wonderful and the towels are so soft & fluffy everything is hotel standard. The cottage is tastefully furnished and the kitchen is brilliantly equipped. There is a sparkling clean bathroom with lashings of hot water and good pressure from the shower The property is very close to shops & the old railway line starts just round the corner, for a great walk to Thorpness. There is a pretty back garden with lovely seating and a sun ...more
A stunning home with everything you could possibly require. Amazing beds & linen. Ideal location. Fabulous layout with a really sociable space. Pure luxury. We’ll definitely return.
We really enjoyed our stay at this lovely cottage. A small problem with the heating was sorted out quickly. One thing we would say is that the two bottom stair steps should have a warning mark on the edge as it's quite difficult to see them as they are the same colour and wood as the floor in the sitting room. Both of us although aware of this fell from the second step luckily saved by the armchair, alcohol had not been taken!!
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.
We were lucky enough to stay at Brook Lodge over the beautifully sunny bank holiday weekend/half term and the setting, facilities and lodge were all absolutely beautiful. Complete tranquility and everything you could possibly need for a really relaxing stay. Cleanliness was generally excellent, but there were some dog hairs left on the tops/backs of the sofas from previous guests and a slight odour, which we quickly resolved ourselves and really didn’t effect our stay at all. We would definitely recommend and come back.
A lovely well equipped house in a beautiful area. A very good location to explore the delights of Suffolk. Amazing array of wildlife
We had a super Summer wildlife watching stay. Fairly close to Minsmere. The cottage is well appointed. As we were only two, it was spacious with super kitchen and dining room. The lounge was cosy. Stairs were a little steep and windy needing careful agility and the driveway needed cautious exit. The garden was beautifully restful and cleverly designed to favour sun and shade with inspired planting. We had a lovely week.
We were really pleased with our stay at Gothic Cottage in Clare, Suffolk. The cottage was well equipped and there was sufficient crockery to make use of the dishwasher. The beds were comfy and the bedding really soft and smooth. The showers were easy to use. The out look over the garden was delightful. We used the swimming pool but not the tennis court as the weather meant the grass court might be too slippy for 70+ year olds. We found Clare an ideal spot. We managed different days out without travelling more than twenty miles. Suffolk is a pretty county with lots of historical interest and ...more
Great location, lots to see in Lavenham. Excellent restaurants and pubs. Accommodation delightful, loads of character but yet very comfortable and interior bang up do date with all mod cons.
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
We had a very relaxing and pleasant stay. Great location to explore Suffolk. Happy not to have to worry about any formal check in. Hot tub and grounds were checked and tended to very discreetly. Beds very comfortable and we loved the hot tub and freedom to roam about onsite as we pleased. Would visit again! Only issue might be to note: there were groundworks being done opposite us which wasn't mentioned to me at time of booking.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it. The only thing we could fault was the weather and that was out of the owners hands. Everything else for us was excellent.
Delightful cottage in the historic and picturesque town of Lavenham. Good base for exploring rural Suffolk, although some distance from the coast.
Had a wonderful week at the Granary where we made full use of activities available such as Tennis courts and Table tennis. Also has impressively stocked kitchen. Fantastic farm views of sheep, birdlife and sunsets from Master bedroom! Excellent location from coast everywhere took 30minutes. Framlingham Castle great to walk around along with the town. Very friendly Hosts, Would definitely recommend for families or friends.
A very relaxing few days was spent at Holly cottage. Lovely location especially having the Huntingfield Arms across the road serving great food and Southwold being so close. Also some good walks from the cottage and a visit to the church mustn’t be missed because of it’s wonderful ceiling.
An extremely well equipped cottage with everything you could wish for, even digital radios both in the bathroom and kitchen. We thoroughly enjoyed our week here, as did our springer spaniel, and the garden proved a lovely place for eating outside.
We had a lovely time staying at Grove farm and really enjoyed the house, and Andrew was very friendly, would definitely recommend to friends to come back.
Myrtle cottage is hidden down a little path from a typical Suffolk church. You enter through a beech archway into a small but perfect garden . The cottage is cosy at the front and then opens out into a light filled kitchen and dining area. We were able to have breakfasts and evening drinks on the raised patio area at the back whilst listening to the birds sing. The cottage doesn’t feel like a holiday rental but a much loved home with lovely crockery and books and ornaments which have been bought for love rather than merely to decorate. Unfortunately one of our party ended up in hospital whils...more
The Cartlodge was ideal for our stay. Well equipped. Very comfortable bed and nice quality bedding and towels. Helpful owners nr by if any questions. Perfect location for exploring that part of the Suffolk coast lots to see and nowhere any distance to travel. Beautiful walk just down the road all around the estuary to Snape Maltings
Renting a pace from the internet always carries some risk. Photos are cleverly shot and manipulated and sometimes provide an inaccurate idea of the internal and external space. Happily the Black Swan was as advertised. In an interesting area, plenty of walking opportunities, quiet without being deserted, very well and handsomely equipped house especially the kitchen. It was cold at night and the log burner worked perfectly. The outside space is attractive with plenty of life first thing in the morning in terms of rabbits, hares, muntjacs and birds. The bathrooms are excellent in size and qua...more
We chose Little Tay Barn to provide our family of 6 (with provision for 8) with a very well earned break. We just wanted some space and solitude in an isolated, green setting. We were not disappointed. The property is large and very well equipped. I would compare it to a luxury hotel. Very clean with large rooms, kitchen and seating areas. We had a BBQ with the supplied equipment and just spread ourselves and relaxed. Andy and Jane were very welcoming and showed us around on our arrival. On a couple of occasions we needed help (on how to use the TV and showers) and called them. They were insta...more
Great place to stay, lovely pool and house is fully equipped! We had a great time, about an 8 minute drive from Bawdsey beach which is lovely
Comfortable roomy lodge in a superb setting which was very well maintained on the whole. No signal on living room TV. The road through the business park & builders area was full of pot holes spoiling the approach to the lodges.
We enjoyed our stay the cottage is lovely and within easy reach of many Suffolk beaches and places to visit. The cottage is beautifully modernised with all “mod cons”and very comfortable and we felt “at home” and relaxed. Only slight downside for older visitors may be the steep staircase however, being in the older age group ourselves we managed and it didn’t detract from its charm and our holiday . Thank you Hideaway Cottage .
Perfect spot for two in peaceful, private grounds. Great views over the marshes to the river. Lovely walks and Bird spotting from the house.Easy access to Aldeburgh, Snape and lots of interesting sights nearby.
Enjoyable stay in Suffolk the cottage is in the ideal position to visit Sutton Hoo, Bury St Edmunds, Framlingham and the many pretty villages in this part of Suffolk.
Gorgeous cottage with allocated parking space (v important). Excellent location, minutes away from the high street and beach. Really perfect stay, just too short!
Fabulous cosy cottage set in the most perfect setting especially if you like walking. We met the estate manager Chris very friendly nothing we to much trouble. The welcome hamper was a lovely surprise. We both would highly recommend this lovely cottage in the heart of Higham.
A beautiful apartment in a fabulous setting and wonderful views of the river and tidal marshes. The apartment was well appointed and the owners thoughtfully provided everything necessary to get you started ; milk, tea, coffee biscuits etc. Huge private grounds at the front with tables and chairs, plenty of space for parking. Lovely area with lots to explore and interesting places to visit, especially for Benjamin Britten devotees!
The property is 2 Nil Desperandum. There is a property of a similar name next door. In a very friendly village with an excellent local pub. No village shop though. The property was clean and well maintained with attractive modest gardens. A nice very sheltered private decking area at the back. Some of the basic inventory was either missing or very low. No scissors, nearly empty washing up liquid bottle. We also had to buy extra toilet rolls ( only 2 adults staying ). Beware the stairs are very steep and uneven. We live in a cottage, but this would a challenge to the not so mobile. Also note th...more
Lovely home with everything you could need and more. There was nothing to find fault with and would love to stay again.
We had a wonderful family weekend at Cockerells Hall. It is a beautiful and comfortable house set in a stunning garden in deepest Suffolk. The swimming pool was an added bonus. Our grandchildren loved it. There was everything we needed for a fabulous stay. The welcome hamper was a lovely surprise! Thank you very much for a much needed break. We would love to return one day!
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 stayed for a week with my family and had a lovely stay. Easy to find and parking at the house is excellent and on street parking is easy. Great location, just a few minutes walks down to the high street and beach. The front door handle is a little tricky, it turns to the right which is very close to the door frame so be careful not to catch your hand. We had a couple of accidents doing this. Very clean, lovely condition house and furnished to a high standard. Would definitely recommend.
Great location near seafront and pier with many pleasant places nearby for coffee. Lovely views from the balcony. Property was comfortable with all that we needed as a couple. Probably a bit tight for four occupants and two flights of stairs to the door might be less than ideal for the less mobile. Definitely would consider for a repeat visit later in the year.
My husband an I took my elderly mother on a one week break to Orford. We stayed at 1 Market Hill which was a delightfull cottage, well equipt, and in a good location to explore the suffolk coast and many loacal attractions. We had a lovely leisurely break. The ower is in the process of installing a downstairs toilet which will be a welcome addition.
We enjoyed the quirkiness of the cottage, which might not appeal to everybody. There was plenty of room for 2 of us but a larger party might find the small rooms a bit of a squeeze and a dishwasher might be a bonus for them. However the cottage is in an excellent location for shops and restaurants and accessing footpaths, and the beach was not far away. A most enjoyable stay.
The Studio at Ayres End was a wonderful base for exploring a quiet corner of Suffolk. The spotless accommodation was accurately described; generous basic provisions, and freshly picked flowers from the delightful garden, added to the sense of welcome. A real home-from-home which I have no hesitation in recommending to others.
Snow Hall Barn is charming, quaint and set in a peaceful location in the Suffolk countryside, yet close enough to drive to Southwold, Aldeburgh and Dunwich, a lovely dog friendly beach. Great amenities within the barn, with a super lovely hamper upon arrival! All in all we had a great holiday and would definitely return to Snow Hall Barn.
Lovely and peaceful location with views over parkland. Sadly the weather was not good, so we couldn't make use of the outside area. Comfortable beds and good quality bedding and soft towels. Very quiet - we had a very good night's sleep. Good layout. However the cottage is in need of a bit of TLC in places and bathrooms, in particular, need a bit of an over hall. Not really possible to have a shower due to very poor water pressure. otherwise, all good.
Nice barn great location . .lovely out door pool .very spacious .very helpful friendly owners.weather just could of been better .
Lovely cottage in an ideal situation for all the attractions of Aldeburgh. Kitchen well equipped and lounge very comfy.
Chantry Cottage was very pretty. It had 2 double bedrooms and a single with en suite downstairs. The accommodation was very nice although we would have liked a larger TV. The beds were comfortable, the stairs were very steep though and some of the door entrances slightly low for my husband. Overall a very pretty country cottage with a lovely courtyard garden.
The location is excellent. The building and grounds are very attractive and provide stylish and comfortable accommodation. Overall the facilities provided were good and represented reasonable value for money. However, the total level of customer satisfaction was let down by a number of specific failings that could have been avoided: the windows in the kitchen do not close properly and allowed a constant influx of flies, the handle to the fridge was broken, the owners had failed to remove their food from the pantry and did not mark their own fridge and freezer as to which parts were private/ava...more
A big thank you to Nigel, for a great stay last weekend, the barn was so lovely and perfect for a weekend away with friends, the pool was amazing and we got lucky with the weather to be able to use it. If you ever had a problem Nigel was there straight away to help. I’d definitely recommend this place to anyone we will be returning.
Lovely clean and atmospheric cottage but very remote. Car essential. Suit friends looking for plenty of space for a long weekend away
The house was nice although lacked one or two basics such as sharp kitchen knives and no hairdryer. We found the village was a bit uninspiring so we needed to use the car every day, but a well equipped and comfortable house, and exceptionally comfortable beds.
Green Valley Farm stayed in the Cowshed while visiting family in Suffolk we found it to be very homely and nicely furnished bed very comfy that is very important to us as well as being very clean if it wasn’t we would have come home. We would recommend staying here the location was lovely and peaceful we stay in Suffolk up to 4 times a year visiting and the Cowshed suited us we are quite fussy people and thought we would try somewhere different than our usual places we will definitely book to stay there again perhaps in the Woodshed as my partner has to rest in the afternoons and the bedroo...more
really amazing house, great location for boating lake and beach would definitely stay again. take your golf clubs as you back onto the practise area.
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.
Just six lodges set amongst beautiful rural Suffolk. Had breakfast & coffees at the restaurant. All well presented & such a lovely setting. All the staff were helpful & informative. We stayed at The Laurel lodge which was spacious & beautifully furnished. The shower was amazing. Would love to return one day
Comfortable and fun place to stay, only drawback was the cooker which took ages, but we were not in a hurry,
For once we really made use of beautiful accomodation and garden. Weather was perfect, ventured out for daily dog walks in Thornham Estate, the enjoyed meals, prosecco, and the sun in the beautiful garden.
Although tired in places with decor and furnishings this lovely cottage was full of character. The gardens were really well kept and added a real bonus to the property especially having dogs as the gardens extremely secure. Use of the parkland and walks around the surrounding area were much appreciated . The Aga takes a bit of getting use to but the cook book available was a real bonus to any Aga novice. We had a problem with the dishwasher but once made aware it was sorted straight away and Chris couldn’t of been more helpful. A lovely stay .
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
Threeways could be wonderful but it is tired, we saw it is up for sale and it shows. Quite expensive for the state untidiness in the property and garden The kitchen was not clean considering we are in COVID times, not sure when the bin was washed out ,we had to anti bac everywhere ,the fridge didn’t work and no instructions books anywhere for how the cooker worked , we also did the bathrooms, the kitchenette in the master room had dirty cloths left on the work surface and the tap flooded so didn’t use it. We had to call the owner ,who did bring a new fridge the next day and he had daily call...more
we were never told how steep the stairs were in fact so steep a chair lift has been installed.n the double bedroom you could every bodily function of the owner extremely unpleasant.On the plus side very good garden fully enclosed perfect for our dog.Also an excellent shower.Caution has to be taken driving out into the road as although not busy vehicles move very fast through it.All in all this extremely quirky cottage was not for us.
