    Wonderful cottage in beautiful out of the way location. Property is very comfortable, well furnished and thought out. Hamlet is beautiful and nearby village pub excellent. Host couldn't have been warmer or kinder.

    Fantastic place to stay. Touched all the right buttons. A lovely and quiet location, but a short drive away to what one needs when on a short break.

    Lovely, comfortable and well equipped cottage. Spotlessly clean. Location is very rural, thus very quiet which we enjoyed. Received a very warm welcome from the owner.

    A beautiful house with all the comforts you could wish for . The location is relaxing and tranquil . We enjoyed a week at the Cart Barn and spent some lovely quality family time here . Good location from which to explore Essex and Suffolk . The owners were very helpful and friendly . We thank them for our stay .
