Nicely decorated and furnished cottage with wood burning stove.

Ms Holly S,

This has to be the best pet friendly holiday cottage we have ever stayed in, comfortable beds, immaculately clean, exquisitely furnished and a lovely little enclosed garden. It is so well equipped - even a dog blanket, treats and towel. To top it all - it is only short stagger home from our favourite restaurant! Well done Suffolk Cottage Holidays - already booked again for next year!
