    Absolutely first-class accommodation - difficult to find fault, but a couple more towels would have been nice. Owner helpful and friendly. A great place for a holiday and to visit the many attractions of North Essex and South Suffolk.

    Fantastic stay in a beautiful setting. The house itself was stunning and exceptionally well maintained. The owners were lovely and very accommodating; they even put up a baby gate for our arrival.
