Wonderful long weekend at the Old School House. Everything was so comfortable and relaxing, it felt like a much longer trip. Just what we needed to get away from it all and recharge. Thank you so much!

Miss S,

Lovely little place in such a beautiful spot overlooking the countryside and a great abundance of wildlife. Really peaceful all around. We wanted for nothing at the property everything had been catered for would definitely recommend !

Mrs T,

Lovely views from the bed! Nice to be able to open up to the outside.

Mr J,

Fantastic retreat, only 20 mins drive from foodie central Bury st Edmunds. The views over the surrounding fields is undistracted and so peaceful. Kitchen was great for ‘proper’ cooking and a good standard of equipment. Lots of storage, shower very powerful and lovely interior design! Thank you! We’ll be back!

Miss Z,

Property is off the beaten track away from town/cities which is amazing. Can reset yourself & relax without stresses within a day. The view is great & wildlife if visible.

Mr L,

Superb, rural location, with great views, and lots of excellent local pubs, with big, spacious outside dining areas. Lots of interesting places to visit within a 10 mile radius.

Mr A,

Absolutely loved our stay. The house is done to such a high standard and every detail is paid attention to. Our dog loved the open grass in front and made the perfect morning to watch the sunrise with a coffee and for him to potter about. Especially loved the bath with the large windows to gaze out of. Would fully recommend!

Mr T,
