We enjoyed our stay at The Cottage very much, our hosts were very helpful and friendly. A nice quiet place, with a lovely private garden. The village shop is well stocked. We would recommend and would like to visit again.

It is a very well appointed cottage, adjacent to a small country village. Local pubs are welcoming and serve good food at reasonable prices. The village shop is OK for day to day essentials. It is not the easiest of locations to find and requires time and patience to get to places of interest in the wider locality. The covered swimming pool was a real bonus in the recent very hot weather!

This was our second visit to The Cottage so that says a lot in itself. Private and tranquil, plenty of space for the two of us and our dog. Kitchen well equiped, bed very comfortable with lovely bedding. Caught sight of deers, foxes and hares around the cottage. TV could do with an upgrade as could the vacuum cleaner which blew more than sucked. Excellent base for exploring Suffolk and will definitely return.
