What our guests say

"We celebrated Halloween here and the grandchildren had a wonderful time! The 8-year-old brought his telescope and loved the clear, starry skies."

"Great large garden for our two cocker-spaniels. They loved the freedom and listening to the geese!"

"A lovely cottage, very well presented and equipped which we have enjoyed very much. A good area of Suffolk especially Southwold and Beccles. Thanks"

"We have had a fantastic stay at The Mulberry. We booked this accommodation to revisit areas of Oulton Broad and Lowestoft where my husband had many summer holidays growing up. We loved the peace and quiet, wildlife and views. The lemon drizzle cake and wine was a very nice touch. Would love to return."

"Lovely family get together with mum (81) sister and brother in law, myself and my partner. Good food in The Fleece at Bungay. We ate in on Saturday night and enjoyed all the lovely facilities of the cottage. Had a free firework display through the big windows. Lovely comfortable beds, fantastic views and peace & quiet (unheard of for us living by the M25 and M1). Thank you for the sparkling wine and cake, very enjoyable. Will be back!"
