Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Wonderful garden which the dogs enjoyed very much (as did we when sun shone!). Despite it being June, we needed to light the log fire which made up for the dreadful weather somewhat. A very lovely place to stay. June 2012.
  2. A lovely rural retreat which the whole family enjoyed. The cottage is perfect for relaxing with the family and the dogs loved the huge garden and visiting wildlife. Ideally placed to explore the Suffolk coast and the Norfok Broads (Waveney River Centre is a great place to hire day boats for a gentle cruise in the south Broads) and Walberswick is always a delight. We would return next weekend if we could! AM Hertfordshire. April 2012.
  3. What a fantastic place to stay if you want a quiet relaxing week. The table was set for tea when we arrived and the fire made up ready to light.The owner wrote a welcoming card and also telephoned in the evening to check that we had arrived safely and that everything was ok. Can’t wait to go back in the summer. Feb 2012.
  4. An ideal property for anyone with children, particularly a big group. We took both wings and had 6 children under 7! Relaxing comfortable & informal. Excellent huge garden for playing in. 10 mins to Southwold beach. We rented a beach hut there, which I strongly recommend ( Aug 2011.
  5. As 4 adults with 3 small/medium dogs between us it was an ideal property. The gardens and situation are ideal for anyone who loves the countryside and dog walking ..... our children and grandchildren don’t need ’play space’ now but it would be an ideal playground. It may not be the most up to date property but people should understand that one which welcomes dogs and children, enabling them all to relax, needs to be comfortable and spacious not ’up to the minute’ with gadgets and decor. We all found it a relaxing place and so convenient for the many interesting towns and the beaches and galleries around the area. A lovely and very welcome break. The music which played as we arrived plus the welcome cake and table set for a cup of tea put a smile on all our faces. Thank you. June 2011.
  6. It was well equipped and spotlessly clean. Oct 2010.
  7. Quiet situation with excellent walks available from the door of the property making it very suitable for our dogs. Sept 2010.
  8. Spacious, private with large garden. April 2010.
  9. A wonderful place to send quality time with young family. Our son loved the garden and took the opportunity to utilise a gentle slope in the 1 acre garden for use of his sleigh following snow. Just be aware of very creaky floorboards and basic kitchen. However it must be said we do not go on holiday just to spend time in a shiny kitchen and we would not hesitate to recommend farmhouse again. Dec 2009.
  10. Superb for a large group event if booking both units. Very friendly and helpful owner. Dec 2009.
  11. Love the open fire. The logs are stored in a disused fireplace, so they are always dry & no need to go outside in the cold & dark to get them! The place is not too grand, so you don’t need to worry about bringing your dog (within reason, of course.) The large garden is excellent for dogs & children. Nov 2009.
  12. We just loved the fact that it was an old farmhouse and in an extremely rural setting. It was therefore hugely relaxing, peaceful and just what we wanted. My family are very self-contained and good at keeping ourselves entertained however, I don’t think this would suit everyone - some may book it without realising its remoteness and perhaps this should be highlighted in the brochure. Lots of people don’t seem to be able to exist without Waitrose on the doorstep! Oct 2009.
  13. What we really loved was the fantastic location with the large lawn, and quiet countryside. Aug 2009.
  14. Lovely, quiet property, ideal for families or those with pets. Only downside was very squeaky floorboards upstairs. Everything else was great! June 2008.
