Guests that stayed at this property said

Reviews consistently mention the property being clean and well-maintained, with several guests noting the spotlessness and the provision of cleaning materials. The high level of cleanliness contributes significantly to the comfort and enjoyment of the stay.

The location is highly commended for its tranquillity, beautiful gardens, and wildlife. Its proximity to Hadleigh, various villages, and places of interest, as well as suitability for dog walking and exploring the Suffolk countryside, is greatly appreciated by guests.

Guests find the beds comfortable and the sitting room pleasant, with several noting the quality of the sofas and bedding. However, some guests mention the water pressure in the shower as a drawback, which slightly impacts the overall comfort score.

The property is well-equipped with modern kitchen appliances, Wi-Fi, and ample parking. However, some guests suggest improvements such as better water pressure for showers and more space for food preparation and grocery storage, indicating room for enhancement in facilities and maintenance.

Many reviews express gratitude for the thoughtful welcome pack and other provisions, which include essentials like bread, milk, and eggs. While these gestures are highly valued, it is important to note that such amenities are subject to change and may not be guaranteed for every stay.

About this property

Hadleigh 0.5 miles. This attractive ground floor annexe is part of 18th century Holbecks House, set within extensive estate grounds and home to the owner's B&B. With its own private entrance, this self-contained Hadleigh cottage is well presented throughout and offers a spacious sitting room with pleasant garden views and a well-equipped kitchen. Traditionally furnished and decorated, there are also two comfortable bedrooms and a contemporary-style bathroom at this Hadleigh cottage. Outside is a sheltered walled garden in which to sit and enjoy a peaceful morning coffee, and guests have access to the extensive private parkland and fenced pond, lovely for an afternoon stroll with the dog. A pleasant stroll down the quiet estate lane brings you in to the bustling market town of Hadleigh with a fine selection of tea rooms, local pubs and independent shops, whilst the surrounding countryside is ideal for touring, walking and cycling. Nearby Lavenham is worth a visit to enjoy the old Tudor buildings and Sudbury offers a range of interesting antiques shops. A short drive from this Hadleigh cottage brings you to Dedham Vale known as Constable country and a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. A lovely Hadleigh cottage in a wonderful location. Note: This cottage can be booked with Ref. 24518 and together they sleep 10 people.

The pretty, ancient market town of Hadleigh lies deep in the Suffolk countryside between Ipswich and Sudbury.

  • Gerard

    Great for dog walking in the surrounding fields and hills. Extremely peaceful. Easy to visit other Suffolk sights.

  • Catharine

    Quiet, clean, spacious and comfortable. Beautiful setting with a nice walk into town. Everything I needed was provided. Laundry room especially spacious with room to hang clothes inside. Cattle grids a bit of a challenge with a push chair so easier to drive if transporting small children. Lots of wild life to watch from the kitchen window. The snowdrops were beautiful.

  • Linda Ann

    Provided lavatory paper, tea towel, paper towels, washing up liquid, coffee, a pint of milk, eggs, butter, and much more, that we did not expect. Items not used, apart from egg and milk, as we always bring our own but very thoughtful of owner to provide these items to start guests off. Enjoyed our stay very much.
