Wonderful property, very well equipped with lovely touches. Totally enjoyed the holiday. Really appreciated how welcome our host made us.

Ms Joan E,

Absolutely incredible. I would say it’s the best place we’ve stayed in the past 2 years. Reminded me how to be happy again.

Miss Hollie H,

Beautiful location in the Suffolk countryside yet only 15 minute drive to Bury St Edmunds. Lots of excellent dog friendly pubs nearby. Chill and relax in this beautiful cottage that is spotlessly clean and so very comfortable
