    We enjoyed our stay,the cottage was ideal for our needs. The owner was courteous and helpful providing us with a mixed selection of eggs from her duck,hen and bantams, a welcome touch. We wanted to stay near Diss and Eye and this was most convenient for us. We would use this cottage again if we visit Suffolk/ Norfolk border again

    Very comfortable and clean. Owners were very helpful. Nice gesture of flowers and eggs and Nick stood outside with brolly to help after we phoned because couldn't find cottage. More kitchen equipment such as toaster (although there was a grill) casserole dishes and mixing jug would have been helpful. Overall cottage was lovely and very private and a good holiday.
