Excellent location and cottage. The cottage is well appointed with one of the best welcome packs that I have experienced . It has lots of little touches which make the cottage a pleasure to be in. Kersey is a lovely village with a pub that is friendly and offers good food.

Miss T,

Attractive, beautifully furnished, homely and welcoming house. Kersey village quaint and friendly. Lots of walking and a good location from which to visit Lavenham, Long Melford and Flatford. Good shops in Hadleigh.
