Reviews

Mallards is a lovely property. Beautifully furnished and equipped and impeccably clean. The hosts could not have been more welcoming and helpful. The birds and animals on the property are a delight. Great location with stunning countryside all around.

Ms H,

A little gem. Lovely accomodation set in a peaceful location with plenty of walks to explore and wildlife to see (Turkeys, Donkeys, EMU'S!!). Would definitely recommend.

Previous Customer,

I can honestly say that Mallards was the cleanest accommodation, bar none, that I have ever stayed in. Spotless. The accommodation was compact but but didn't feel cramped at all - ideal for a couple. It had all the comforts of modern living (heating control in each room, underfloor heating downstairs, Wi-Fi, TV, combination oven and large shower) but with a traditional, cosy feel. It was warm and well appointed, with everything we needed during our stay. Very reasonably priced compared to other accommodation in the area, so good value for money, and the welcome chocolates and drinks in the fridge were an unexpected and appreciated surprise. The weather really didn't allow us to make the most of the invitation to walk in the fields to the rear of the property and the surrounding area, but we loved watching the wide variety of animals through the windows! . The owner greeted us when we arrived and he was friendly and accommodating. All in all we had a very relaxing and pleasant stay and we would thoroughly recommend Mallards to others and would not hesitate to return if we head to Suffolk again.

mr S,

Very comfortable and nicely presented property. Modern facilities in a lovely setting with open views.

Mr G,

Delightful, immaculate, comfy cottage in the lovely countryside south of Bury St Edmunds. The host Ian lives next door, and was very helpful in every way, providing plenty of local information. He keeps geese, chickens, turkeys, pigs and even emus, as well as 3 dogs – who make very interesting neighbours.

Mrs B,

We had a wonderful stay at the Mallards which is delightful in every way. Our hosts were lovely and very accommodating. The cottage was spotless and we would highly recommend it to everyone.

Mrs L,

The location is great for exploring wider Suffolk, we found the property very clean and comfortable. The animals around the property were a delight to watch.

Mrs B,
