Sweffling is a small Suffolk village nestled neatly between Framlingham and Saxmundham. Complete with village pub and church it is utterly quaint and picturesque. Surrounded by rolling countryside, it is known for its' agricultural links in the area. The 'hut' acts as the village hall and was once an Army Sergeant's Mess Hall from World War I and was moved from Saxmundham to Sweffling after the conflicts had ceased. The village has access to a fantastic network of footpaths - whilst also being within a good driving distance of Suffolk's prettiest market towns and local attractions.

Thanks for the lovely gifts/cards on arrival and the cottage looked lovely, warm and cosy. We enjoyed a lovely Christmas lunch in the kitchen! We walked for around an hour each day using the local footpaths. Thanks again & best wishes.

Previous Customer,

New visitors to Suffolk. The cottage is a great base with easy access to the coast and the A12 for a trip to Flatford Mill (excellent guide) and Lavenham. Sutton Hoo is fascinating (another excellent guided tour). The cottage is stylish with a lovely country feel. The Crown at Gt Glemham is nearby and has a good menu. We've had a lovely time.

Elaine and J,

Lovely cosy and well equipped cottage. Great walks on the doorstep. Try The Crown at Gt Glemham for home cooked food and real ale. Juniper cafe at Rendham has a range of everyday items. Enjoy!

The Jones Family,

Thank you for sharing your beautiful and well equipped cottage with us! We've enjoyed lovely walks on the local footpaths and along the reed beds of the Coastal Trail. The countryside has never looked more beautiful. We'll return to London feeling revived.

Susanne and D,

Despite the predicted weather forecast we enjoyed a sunny week in Suffolk! The cottage has been sympathetically renovated and tastefully decorated and provided everything we needed for a really luxurious stay. Nice to have milk & Beer on arrival! We enjoyed many days out along the coast and also discovered a few more pretty villages. A great Holiday!

The Langthorne Family,

Cottage was stylish, immaculately clean, bed linen superb, we loved it and would love to return. The local guide and details were very professionally done,as was the whole cottage.

Previous Customer,

We have had a glorious 4 days here - the cottage was even better than the photos, immaculately clean and we loved the decor. Attention to detail and a very generous welcome pack. We've had sunshine and clouds but when the sun came out in the evening the garden was a eal suntrap. White Cottage delivers peace and quiet and is a great base for exploring beautiful countryside and quaint seaside towns and villages.

Peny & P,

Lovely few days in a beautiful cottage, stylish and comfortable - spotlessly clean. Thank you for the wine etc a very personal touch.

Previous Customer,

Lovely cottage for a warm and sunny week in Suffolk. We enjoyed a visit to the local White Horse and its take-away beer. Have enjoyed local ambles, plus trips to Snape, Aldeburgh, Thorpeness, Framlingham & Orford. , where is was the perfect day for a boat trip around Havergate Island - would recommend subject to weather. We found plenty of dog friendly pubs/cafes. If you are visiting Aldeburgh and need anything for a dog, do try Wag & Bone on the High Street.

Previous Customer,

We have been very comfortable in this lovely cottage and t is such a lovely tranquil area. So glad this week with sunshine rather than the heavy rains of last week! Its a great location for getting out and about and as well as all the suggested locations we enjoyed a day in Ipswich with all the interesting buildings and waterfront. We have really enjoyed our week in Suffolk thank you for the great accommodation, Best wishes

Jan & T,
