    Another, idyllic stay at the beautiful,tranquil, and spacious Coach House.The pretty stream which runs by the bedroom window, had the added bonus of an Indian Runner duck and Moorhens! The adjoining woodland is just wonderful; with great emphasis on the environment and the flora and fauna it supports.Just puzzled why this lovely, hide-away has not been granted five stars!! As always, the cottage is 'spit-spot' to the highest standard. Ian the owner, is always 'around' if needs be,but is totally unobstrusive .Daisy our Shih-Tzu was made so welcome-as always. We have already booked to return in the autumn.Thank you Ian and Pandora for sharing your superb cottage. Sylvia and Frank

    Fabulous comfy, clean and spacious cottage. We loved our stay and cant wait to stay again. The property is a nice walk from Saxmundham and lots of places to visit within a short drive. The garden is lovely and the duck kept us entertained all week!

    Excellent and well equipped cottage, beautifully decorated and exceedingly generous on space, in a much underrated part of the world. The only very minor niggle is that there is no wifi connection (we were offered use of the main house connection, but even when standing close to the house couldn't pick it up) and also a dish to receive TV would enable Freesat to be received, to get over the rather dodgy local Freeview signal. With these two inexpensive improvements, the Coach House would score ten out of ten

    Absolutely fantastic! I would give more than 10 for all of these reviews if I could, I felt at home as soon as we arrived. Considering it takes animals it was spotless on arrival, you would never guess they allowed pets!! It is perfect for dog owners with a beach near by for walks. Owners were so lovely and helpful and made themselves available if needed. I will definitely endeavour to go back. I can't say enough good things about this cottage so I'll leave it there.

    Such a lovely weekend, we couldn't have wished for a cosier, more romantic cottage. Loved the massive shower, underfloor heating and the homely farmhouse kitchen which had everything we could need. I also loved that it was in the grounds of such a lovely house and the owner couldn't have been more welcoming. We would definitely recommend this property!

    We had a lovely week at the Coach House - one of the best we can remember. It was exceptionally clean and very well-equipped.

    You need to be aware that the entire property is overlooked by the owners who live approx. 15 yards away and their drive runs the entire length of the property. The cottage has lots of character however the main sofa has seen better days. The TV is good and large, and there is a blueray dvd player, there is freeview but limited channels. There is no Internet which is a great pity, as phone reception on Vodafone is patchy. One problem was in the kitchen where an ants nest erupted from the wall behind the bin, we had hundreds of them including flying ones, luckily being old hands at self catering we had ant spray, although took two cans to eradicate. On leaving we cleaned and tidied and stripped the bed etc. The next day after leaving the owner called and virtually accused my wife of stealing the duvet, due to it being paper thin he had picked up with the bedding and not noticed ( we found out as he called and told us), this upset my wife terribly.

    This is comfortable and well appointed accommodation in a peaceful setting convenient for coastal and eastern areas of mid Suffolk. There are however, some drawbacks to the cottage. It is impossible to make the bedroom dark enough to counter mid summer early morning light at approx. 4.00 a.m. There are three full length windows with only one covered by an adequate weight curtain - the other two with venetian blinds which cannot possibly be light proof even when fully closed. There is also a stained glass panel above the door which allows in light from the large skylight in the adjacent hallway. This was an issue for us during our stay first week in June. The pet friendly status of the property was very apparent from the evidence of dog hairs on the soft furnishings and throw rugs in the lounge (in fact one previous reviewer comments about using these as dog blankets). Free view T.V. reception was poor with only a fraction of available channels and frequent signal losses. This is apparently common in this part of Suffolk, so much so that the owner states that in his own house situated adjacently he has installed Sky, but has not bothered doing this for the Coach House. We also experienced problems with the bathroom basin plug as noted by a previous reviewer and had to resort to freeing it with a kitchen knife. On reporting this to the owner he said he had been aware of this for some time. On balance this is a nice place to stay for a short holiday but in relation to our personal experiences of rental cottages over a number of years we feel that it is somewhat over priced.
