    A beautiful beautiful cart lodge, decorated immaculately. Cool and spacious inside with a lovely private garden, perfect for sitting in and secure for the dog. Quiet location with lovely walks in every direction. Hosts Brian and Jo were lovely with great suggestions for days out and places to visit. Home made cake, jam and fruit juice to greet us with fresh flowers in the kitchen and lounge. Every bit as lovely as the photos, if not better.

    We had a very enjoyable week. The cottage is comfortable and well equipped and situated in a quiet location, with plenty to see and do without travelling far. There are pleasant walks from the cottage on footpaths across nearby fields. The owners are friendly and helpful, without being intrusive.

    Venns Farm Cart Lodge was a great place to escape to for a few days. The most important plus point for us was the brilliant secure garden for our dog. The fences and gates are excellent with no means of escape - this has not always been the case at other cottage rentals with gardens described as 'secure'. This meant a much more relaxing and fun holiday for everyone - two- and four-legged both! The lodge is very comfortable, spacious and well-equipped. There are plenty of walks outside the front door and parks in Ipswich and Woodbridge with wide open spaces for ball-obsessed dogs. The owners and their lovely dogs could not have been more helpful, friendly and approachable and the wonderful homemade welcome cake was very much appreciated.

    Have stayed here 9 or 10 times now. Perfect location for visiting relatives in Ipswich, local country walks and access to the beautiful Suffolk coast. Very dog friendly. The cottage is always immaculately clean and has all the amenities that you could need. Jo and Brian are the perfect hosts, friendly and helpful and close at hand but never intrusive. We will be back yet again soon

    We were made to feel very welcome by the owners who were very helpful and informative; it is a lovely cottage on a farm in a great area for exploring (especially with a dog) - there are many country walks, coastal areas and some very good dog-friendly pubs and cafes serving delicious food.

    We had an excellent week at Venns Farm. Brian was there to greet us when we arrived and Jo had kindly provided as with a spiced fruit cake in a basket with fruit juices and preserves. Inside the cottage is very nicely decorated. The cottage was not overlooked by Jo and Brian's home. There is a garden at the cottage that is private and in the summer it must be a lovely place to sit in the evening sun. We arrived with snow on the gound but we were warm at all times in the cottage. The shower was hot. All the little things from cleaning products to kitchen rolls were provided in the kitchen. We would not hesitate to hire this property again. Thank you Jo and Brian for a wonderful holiday.

    What a lovely surprise when we arrived after travelling 250miles the welcome basket was a nice touch but the cake was delicious. All what we expected from the photos on the website. Our host was great and nothing was too much effort. We were nice and near our daughter in Ipswich. They were able to visit and enjoy the lovely layout of the cottage. Everything was clean and nicely set out, plenty of room round the dining table, the sofa and chairs were comfortable and cosy.

    This is a beautiful cottage set in the heart of Suffolk. An excellent central location to explore the county and beyond. We had a fantastic holiday as the cottage had everything we needed for a comfortable stay and more. It was extremely clean and beautifully presented. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful and despite being in close proximity to the cottage were unobtrusive; it was obvious that they were interested in making our stay the best it could possibly be. The lodge is in a quiet and secluded location with a couple of lovely local pubs in close proximity. It is very dog friendly which is always a priority for us and the surrounding area offers lovely local walks. Venn's Farm is one of the best places we have stayed and would certainly return in the future. Thank you to Brian and Jo for making us feel so welcome.
