    “The spiral staircase is VERY steep and narrow making it impossible to use them without brushing against the curtain rail which fell off twice (I have now adjusted one of the brackets making it more secure).”

    There are 2 light switches by the front door, neither of which actually switched on a light. There is a picture frame on the dresser on the far left of the lounge with instructions on how to switch on the light in the middle of the room - this light is very dim. A floor lamp in one corner doesn’t work (there is a bulb missing) and another lamp by the table can only be aimed downwards so doesn’t illuminate the room. In the kitchen, the lamp in the cooker hood doesn’t work making it ...

    There are 2 light switches by the front door, neither of which actually switched on a light. There is a picture frame on the dresser on the far left of the lounge with instructions on how to switch on the light in the middle of the room - this light is very dim. A floor lamp in one corner doesn’t work (there is a bulb missing) and another lamp by the table can only be aimed downwards so doesn’t illuminate the room. In the kitchen, the lamp in the cooker hood doesn’t work making it difficult to make use the touch-controls on the hob. Upstairs one of the bedroom lights doesn’t work. The cottage is right on a busy road so it is noisy and difficult to exit with a dog and lock the door behind you with enormous lorries thundering past. There was no welcome pack - not even any milk - and no condiments in the cruet. Despite all this we enjoyed our holiday with good walks nearby

    Thanks for taking the time to provide feedback on your stay at Ploughman's Cottage. I'm sorry to hear you experienced challenges with the lights. We have checked the lamps in the living area and they are working correctly. If you had contacted us during your stay we could have replaced the bulb in the bedroom for you. In regards to the stairs, we are aware that they may not be suitable for everyone and have made sure to provide accurate pictures and a clear description of the stairs on the Sykes website. We're pleased to hear you enjoyed your holiday and the lovely local walks. Property Owner

The property

Nestled in the heart of idyllic Hoxne, a traditional Suffolk village attracting walkers and cyclists aplenty is this beautiful, character rich cottage offering alluring accommodation to three lucky guests. As well as being a wonderful base for exploring East Anglia, this romantic cottage boasts a picturesque exterior and wonderful living spaces to be enjoyed the year-round. Ideal for couples or small families, it retains much of its original features captivating your attention. Enter via the front door, and instantly feel welcomed into its characterful charm exuding from every wall; its original floors, low beams and cosy woodburner housed within a beautiful brick fireplace, add an elegant and refined touch, enhanced by warm terracotta colourways in the dining area to uplift your mood. The compact yet nicely appointed kitchen leads you to the pretty garden to the rear, where you can enjoy the delights of outdoors under a sheltered patio area, looking out across the manicured lawn towards a plethora of beautiful flowers and plants, cascading around its borders. The bathroom is positioned on the ground floor for your convenience, finished traditionally with a neutral shade of tiles. Climb the enchanting spiral staircase, which leads you to the first floor, benefitting two bedrooms; a double and a single, well-presented to a quality standard. A few minutes walk is the local and shop and award winning pub. The property is but a short drive from DIss and Framlingham, both well worth a visit. Framlingham is home to a wonderful castle and now famous for being the town Ed Sheeran grew up in. A little further away you can visit the Suffolk Heritage coast with the must visit Aldeburgh and Southwold; both popular seaside towns with an excellent range of cafes, restaurants and shops. This charming, traditional cottage is ideal for those seeking a unique stay in a wonderful location.

About the location

HOXNE

Scole 2.4 miles; Diss 5 miles.

The idyllic little village of Hoxne sits 5 miles southeast of Diss and 14 miles northwest of Framlingham, Suffolk. One of Suffolk's most attractive villages, Hoxne is home to a Post Office, a 15th century, Grade II listed pub, and the streets are lined with a range of quaint chocolate box cottages, some topped with charming thatched roofs. Steeped in history, Hoxne is famous for one of the largest collections of late Roman silver and gold discovered in Britain. The pretty surrounding countryside and woodland and the River Dove and Waveney flowing past all make Hoxne a perfect base for walking cycling. Within an hour’s drive you can be touring the Norfolk Broads, sunning yourself by the sea or strolling along the pier in Southwold, or discovering the cultural city of Norwich. With a wealth of day trips to enjoy and plenty of wonderful walks and cycling from the door, Hoxne provides an idyllic base for a memorable Suffolk holiday.
