What our guests say

"Thank for a wonderful stay. I've loved the Gig House and the Columbine Hall Gardens. We were here for almost three weeks and the weather was perfect. We found this house very comfortable. A few towns around the area we loved are Southwold, Debenham, Aldeburgh, Lavenham and Haughley. The Crown pub is a great pub. We'll be back!"

"We've had the most wonderful week here. The house and grounds are absolutely beautiful and it has been the perfect break from London and 'lockdown'. Thank you so much!"

"Our first trip away since lockdown... What a beautiful place, perfect for any family wanting to relax in gorgeous surroundings. The Gig House was very comfortable with everything we needed. Picnics down by the moat every evening. We are very sad to leave but we will be back!"
