"Very enjoyable stay and week has flown. Cottage could not be faulted and ideally situated for touring East Suffolk. Thank you for the wine and biscuits. Andrew, Alison and Leo (Cocker Spaniel)."
"What a super renovation, lots of thought goes into making this a lovely place to stay. Beautifully furnished with lots of useful items, the Dyson, very useful! The wine and nibbles a lovely touch, thank you. This is certainly a great location, and so, so peaceful. A web of well used footpaths locally for us to explore, plus much more further afield. We can recommend the White Horse Inn at Sibton, excellent food, also the White Horse at Badingham."
