Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Our 9th visit, Bell Corner is real escape from the world. Dec 2012.
  2. This is a really beautiful cottage, oozing with character and charm and the owner, who lives close by, is exceptionally helpful. Many of the visitors who have written in the Visitors’ Book are repeat customers and we plan to join them. April 2012.
  3. Very nice cottage, much bigger than I anticipated. Ideal for dogs with its enclosed section of garden and some great walks possible from the door. Oct 2011.
  4. We had a wonderful stay in a perfect setting. Ideally based for seeing the best of Suffolk and within walking distance of a great little pub with extremely friendly locals! Aug 2011.
  5. The cottage has all the amenities you could ask for and is very comfortable. July 2011.
  6. A cosy, pleasant cottage. April 2011.
  7. Lovely cottage, nice to have the open fire, as quiet as you could wish for, lovely local pub! Slightly pricey to heat the place but I guess that is the price you pay for character! Overall I would highly recommend it! March 2011.
  8. Quiet, peaceful, just what we needed. Feb 2011.
  9. Really relaxing atmosphere, best place we have stayed in on this score and we holiday often. Really liked just relaxing in this lovely place. Dec 2010.
  10. Our 7th stay! A peaceful getaway, friendly and helpful owner. Dec 2010.
  11. A beautifully preserved ’chocolate box’ cottage and much more spacious than expected. The open log fires are a must. Oct 2010.
  12. A character cottage, very well presented. The only drawback for someone over 6 feet tall was the low beams! May 2010.
  13. Very good location for those seeking a quiet but welcoming rural village atmosphere. The owner was very welcoming and helpful. We all enjoyed our stay there. Outside, the grass was cut & there were freshly planted patio pots, but the garden did look neglected which was a pity. May 2010.
  14. Lovely authentic country cottage. April 2010.
  15. A wonderful place to escape and recharge. Dec 2009.
  16. The cottage has lots of character (exposed beams, log fire etc) and has a very friendly village pub 5 mins walk (tops!) from the cottage. The cottage is extremely well equipped and the owner was extremely helpful ensuring we had all the information we needed. Dec 2009
  17. Romantic cottage, as wanted. Nov 2009.
  18. Good level of accommodation, with nicely proportioned rooms which had been simply fitted out - all in keeping with the cottage. Aug 2009.
  19. Good location - easy access. Spacious. July 2009.
  20. A lovely period cottage sympathetically restored. July 2009.
