What our guests say

"Thank you for an amazing, relaxing week to walk, eat and drink!!  The house is very welcoming and comfortable, especially the beds and towels!  Lovely surroundings to explore the area."

"Brook House has been the perfect escape to the countryside for us.  The house has provided us with everything we needed and more.  It's great to find somewhere that has the perfect mix of modern luxury in an old building which has retained all the old charm and character.  It has provided us with the perfect base to explore the local area - highlights include crabbing at Walberswick, boating lake at Thorpeness, a walk around Framlingham Castle and a family day out at the seaside at Southwold.  Great house - we will be back!"

"Lovely house with a fabulous butcher next door! Recommend fish and chips in Aldeburgh, the walk from here to Thorpeness, the UFO trail in Rendlesham forest and dinner at The Station Hotel in Framlingham. Do leave time for the games room! Sad to be leaving, we are off to Sutton Hoo before our drive home."
