Wonderful cottage, beautiful dog-secure garden! Ultra-comfy beds, everything you need in the house. Lots of places to visit, or just to enjoy locally. Brilliant holiday, thank you!!

Miss P,

Mill Cottage in Ufford is charming and In a very peaceful location. The property was very clean and tidy when we arrived and the garden was stunning! It had everything we needed for a lovely peaceful holiday yet in easy reach of some lovely places to visit such as Woodbridge and Aldeburgh and Southwold on the coast. Fabulous!

Mrs H,

It is a charming ideal property for two or three with a dog - lovely garden, lovely village and rest of coastal Suffolk easily accessible Staircase a bit steep, particularly for the elderly
