    "This property has recently been added - customer comments will appear here soon."
    "Garden was lovely, but felt accommodation needed refreshing. Not everything was clean in the kitchen, carpets were dirty and kitchen chairs were dangerous as nearly broken. No info from owners about surrounding area which was a bit disappointing.Property was a nice size and bedrooms were decent, although cushions and duvet covers were also clearly very old and worn."
    "Lovely position in the countrysideClean and quietBack garden needs to be fenced off and separated from owners."
    "Only a two day stay which was too short. Lovely period cottage in country setting, next door to owners house. Fantastic garden, which we were free to explore. Cottage clean and well equipped.Warm welcome and farewell from owner. The star turn was Doris, the little Jack Russell belonging to the owner's daughter."
    "We were looking for a character property in a good location for the places we wanted to visit & it met all those requirements. The owner was very friendly, made us feel welcome & asked us to feel that we could go anywhere on her farm which trains show horses. It was very interesting & she & her family were happy to answer any questions. All in all a very enjoyable visit although the farm is a bit remote if you want easy access to shops, pubs etc."
    "We really enjoyed our short break in this characterful and comfortable cottage. We were made very welcome by the owner and it was well situated to explore the Suffolk Coast and North Essex. Highlights were Beth Chatto's Garden, Flatford Mill (wonderful scones in the Nat Trust tea shop!) and the RSPB reserve at North Warren, on the coast just north of Aldeburgh where we watched marsh harriers and a hobby hunting over the reed beds. We just wished we could have stayed longer."
    "Beautiful period features and spacious rooms. Large garden, great if u have kids who like space to let off steam. The owners have a very friendly jack Russell who loves kids and there is a yard full of show horses to admire. Very quiet location and with fantastic views of the surrounding countryside, this really is an idyllic retreat. The only negative thing I can say is that the cottage was a little chilly if the heating wasn't on. Also the local pub seems to be shut up so you have a ten minute drive to another one. Overall though a lovely stay and I would definitely recommend"
    "Cottage adjoins owner's house. Owner was very welcoming and friendly which helped to make our holiday. Very child friendly."
