We absolutely loved our stay here for a birthday get away. Everything you needed was all there and the bed was extremely comfortable as well as it being nice and dark with the overhead cover. Communication and instructions were super clear, we cant wait to go back!

Cosy cottage, interesting architecture, good local hikes. Thumbs up from us. We’ve stayed in a number of cottages from this company and they are always professional and responsive.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Constable Cottage. It was very clean, well equipped and comfortable. It had everything we needed for a very pleasant stay. My partner loved it and was very happy with my choice for a long weekend break. The weather wasn't great when we was there but that didn't stop us from enjoying our time there.

We had a really relaxed and great long weekend at the Silos. It's just as beautiful as the pictures and very clean, comfortable and well equipped. I'd highly recommend a stay.

The approach and the parking area was slightly disappointing but it is a farmyard. The cottage , garden and the grounds are beautiful. Having the lake and a boat was a bonus

What a dream come true, we stayed in Suffolk in the summer and as we are big Lovejoy fans we did a walk down to Belchamp Walter and passed Belchamp Hall. We knew the stables(Lovejoys old workshop) was available as holiday accommodation, so decided to come for a week at New Year. From start to finish we couldn’t have wished for a better stay, we have high expectations of the self catering accommodation we stay at, they have to be spotlessly clean, they have to be in good condition and most importantly everything has to work, this accommodation delivered on all fronts, it took a little while f...more

The Dove House is easily found a few hundred yards off the A1071 and there is parking right outside the apartment. On arrival our host Jonathan had kindly put lights on to welcome us and there was a basket of milk, eggs, wine, biscuits etc. The Dove House is spacious, well designed, well equipped, warm and tastefully decorated. It would be hard to image a more pleasant place to stay.

The location and seeing the peacocks, kingfisher and other and wildlife along with stunning snowdrops. Mainly the Mill was clean apart from the blinds and lamps which hadn't been cleaned in a while. The sinks, crockery etc all very clean. Every facility available ie dishwasher, microwave etc and clean white sheets and towels. The Mill was nice and warm and a lot of thought had gone into the decor and presentation of the property. A welcome pack was very much appreciated and again a thoughtful touch. Overall, a lovely location and peaceful, just some of the cleanliness could be improved.

We (couple in our sixties) stayed here for a week in May 2023. We have stayed in many self catering accommodation properties and this [along with the stables downstairs] rates as one of the very best. The Hayloft manages to be both cosy and spacious at the same time. The sofa is properly comfortable. The bed is properly big and comfortable. Kitchen well appointed. Quality of fittings high. Shower does tend to fling water all over the place and the Wifi is poor in the bedroom, but these things small fry compared to the pleasure of being there. Parking very easy. Hosts very hospitable ...more

We very much enjoyed our stay. The place is done up very nicely with great attention to detail. The welcome pack we found was very generous and very much appreciated and enjoyed. The bed is comfortable and bathroom and kitchen in very good condition. Garden area is also very pretty. Surrounding area is beautiful. Highly recommended.

We had a great stay over New Year. It was a privilege to stay in such a historic place which was full of character. There were a couple of small things that let it down though. The downstairs shower room was not very clean and in particular the extractor fan which was totally clogged. We were left a small welcome pack which included 3 individual jams which were all partly used and had to be thrown away. We felt that for a weeks stay perhaps more logs, fire lighters and toilet rolls would have been provided. We were of course told to phone with any issues but felt we wouldn’t as it was over new...more

12 members of our family stayed here and at stable cottage for a week and we all thoroughly enjoyed our holiday! We found the properties to be well equipped and spacious. The pool was a massive hit with everyone- both in the sunshine and the rain! The location was great, quiet and peaceful although within easy reach of many places of interest. We would definitely return and would highly recommend.

You have everything you need, beds are comfy. Minor comments, a hand towel in the kitchen would be good, the TV is a bit small as it's a fair distance from the sofa. Lastly this is disabled specific, the rugs in the room aare all a trip hazard. Personally I think the barn would be better with no rugs.

We stayed as a couple for a short weekend getaway. The property is really well designed and quite unique - great to read the history of how it was converted. The main positive is the setting - in such beautiful countryside with wonderful views from the windows. We enjoyed just sitting and looking out for hours. It was really quiet and peaceful - just what we were looking for - but also close to local pubs and a short drive to lovely villages. The hosts were also very responsive and we had a great welcome pack of goodies. Would loved to have stayed longer if we could so that’s a rec...more

This would be our second cottage booked through Idyllic. Our first cottage was perfect. Sadly, this wasn’t. Firstly, the kitchen appeared to have been overlooked during the cleaning ahead of our stay. Many surfaces were covered in dirty stains and finger marks and the small Nespresso machine was filthy, with used pods still left in situ. We felt we needed to clean all the utensils before we could use them. We checked before booking that this cottage accepts a dog. It does, but there is an access path from a neighbouring property. We often found the neighbour actually walking up an...more
