Really high standard of accommodation in a beautiful area of the country. Lovely to be so rural and peaceful. It was easy to get to lots of places to visit such as beaches, market towns, pretty villages and pubs serving great food. We also had a great day at Alton Water.

Mrs F,

Like a Tardis, and excellently thought through. This lovely remote lodge is more of a home than a lodge. It easily accommodated 4 (um) shall I say, bigger than average adults. Well kitted out with things cleverly in the right place, I felt it has more than a touch of class. A great place if you like walking or if you prefer driving and visiting places, it is central to many popular attractions. Often you have an expectation, before you stay in our this exceeded ours. We would happily stay again. One find we had was Huttons in Earl Soham (posh village). It is a butcher/cafe/cheese counter / mini supermarket. Well worth a visit for a breakfast bap and coffee on a nice day. You will see what I mean.

Mr S,

Exceptionally well-appointed property, helpful owners - the lodge has two separate outside seating areas and a wood at the back for kids to explore in. We had a great time staying here, and would highly recommend it.

Mrs E,

Cottage located in a good position to visit variety of locations. Lovely cottage and lots of thought has gone into the tiny details. Would definitely stay again.

Mrs M,
