Lovely property in nice village, welcome bag of local food and drink a nice touch. Very good all round serviceMr Ian Rugg - 13th August 2018
Can't better this service. Polite, prompt, delighted. Lovely quaint cottage, everything it said it was. This is a lovely, 2 up, 2 down cottage with a relaxing garden. It's compact, but uniquely endearing because of it. Wonderful! When you get great customer service in the UK it sometimes surprises. But the Suffolk Secrets Team excelled here. Very impressed with them and the whole stay. Well done. :) Mr Adrian Shepherd - 29th July 2018
