Very cute cosy cottage with lovely garden and ideal location for site seeing and local pubs.Mrs Jacqueline Butler - 24th April 2018
Lovely short break in Suffolk. House very well equipped (5 star) and cosy. The Golden Key and The Plough and Sail pubs serve excellent food and both dog friendly. There are some nice walks in the area. Perfect break! Nigel, Caroline and Buddy - 16th September 2017
We have been coming here since the millenium - this is the first time since the 2013 floods. The house has been so beautifully re-appointed, transformed - but is just as welcoming and peaceful as it has always been. Lovely comfortable beds and everything thoughtfully provided in every room, kitchen particularly. Many thanks, hope to come again!Beth, Sue and Monty - 8th September 2017
Great base for a fun packed week in Suffolk. Close to all our favourite places. Loved the bi-folding doors which brought the garden into the kitchen. Clean, well equipped and cosy cottage. Perfect for a relaxing week, thank you.Philip Family - 25th August 2017
We really did enjoy our stay.Mrs C Hadlum - 19th July 2017
