Clean, tidy and very comfortable. The cottage is magical, with excellent facilities and utilities, that will make it tempting to stay indoors all day! However the village is worth visiting in itself, and there's some fantastic pubs within walking distance, serving excellent food at an affordable price.

We stayed in the yurt over my birthday weekend. Setbina beautiful, private area, with a stunning meadow to the front of the yurt. The facilities are fantastic, with private shower, toilet and a full kitchen, complete with utensils. During our stay we cooked several meals and the experience was amazing, with the beautiful views from the open kitchen. The yurt itself is beautiful. It's large inside and so comfortable, and the log burner is so great to use! Would definitely stay again!

Both of us had a very good short break at the Milking Parlour. It was very clean,comfortable and all the items for use were good quality. Very friendly cattle in the field behind and a good selection of wildlife including bats in the evening.

We spent a few days at this lovely little cottage. It’s been nicely converted fairly recently and done with flair and thoughtfulness. Any of those little things you may have forgotten you will almost certainly find in a drawer somewhere about the place. The owner has truly thought of everything. We were a tiny bit worried about the car parking, but needn’t have been, we were able to park on the road outside. We chose this place because we know and love Stoke by Nayland. A particularly lovely part of this gorgeous part of the country. Would visit again. Thank you for providing such a cu...more

Stayed here for 5 nights after arriving from Australia jet lagged. We couldn’t have been more comfortable. The cottage was presented in immaculate condition and has everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. Best of all, the king bed was super comfortable and the location is extremely quiet, enabling us to recover from our long haul flight very quickly. Kitchen has just about everything you need, lounge room is spacious and comfortable, large TV with Netflix ect and Wi-Fi is fast and reliable. In fact this place is just as good if not better than the website pics. All the furni...more

We stayed for 12 nights with 2 adults and 2 children aged 4 and 5. We loved the barn and the owners helped to make the stay a delight. The swimming pool was well used and helped to keep it children entertained. It's a beautiful area and we would not hesitate to return in the future.

We had an excellent week in Constable Lodge. We have stayed a couple of times before and it felt like coming home - particularly helpful as sadly we had come down for a funeral. Comfortable seating in lounge, and comfy beds. Small but very well equipped kitchen with a large fridge freezer. Good shower as well as a bath. Great little garden area at the back for sitting/eating out when the weather allows (we were lucky). Overall, a really sympathetically and tastefully restored cottage in a lovely village.

Duke’s Lodge is just as described on the website. It’s a very old building so expect beams galore, rough plaster and creaking sloping floors! However almost all mod cons are here (apart from a dishwasher). The kitchen is well stocked, the sofas are comfy as are the beds. Quality bedding and towels are a bit of a bonus. The central heating is efficient and the log burner was a welcome treat in early March. The local shop and the nearby farm shop provided all the food and wine we wanted and the Bildeston Crown serves delicious food! ( not cheap but worth every penny!!)

The cottage is set in the most superb spot surrounded by fields and woodland nestled next to a picture perfect pond teaming with pondlife ducks and lillies - we were even graced with the arrival of a swan family that waddled in for a bathe one morning. There’s one other cottage behind the house but its certainly not overlooked and feels very secluded. The cottage itself is a really fun mill conversion with the bedroom downstairs meaning you wake up surrounded by nature. There’s a walk in double shower and bathroom downstairs also. The owners beautiful art is on all the walls which...more

Beautiful location. Lovely strolls from the front door. It was great to be able to have a cup of tea in the nicely tended garden when we arrived. The view from the Hayloft was always interesting-over the former walled garden which has a huge water Lilly pond-they were just starting to flower so that was lovely to look at. Handy for getting into Sudbury, Lavenham, Long Melford. Even had a trip to Sutton Hoo which was very worthwhile. Plenty of National Trust properties to see on those rainy days too. We did find the constant screeching of the two resident peacocks rather grating, from 4.30am t...more

We very much enjoyed our stay. The place is done up very nicely with great attention to detail. The welcome pack we found was very generous and very much appreciated and enjoyed. The bed is comfortable and bathroom and kitchen in very good condition. Garden area is also very pretty. Surrounding area is beautiful. Highly recommended.

We stayed at the silos for three nights in May and appreciated quiet nights , wildlife, and comfort. The proximity to the coast and interesting Suffolk towns meant that we could happily fill our days and relax at home in the afternoons and evenings. The conversion of the silos is very stylish with beautiful artworks and nice touches throughout.

A well equipped and well furnished cottage set within a stunning, idyllic location. The cottage had a lovely back garden (with gorgeous views) which was fenced in for our dog and we were welcome to walk in, and use the walled garden of the estate. The owners of Belchamp were friendly and helpful and respected our privacy. We had a really lovely week spent in the cottage and exploring the surrounding areas.

The Tryst is a gem. This beautifully restored cottage has been thoughtfully and sensitively decorated. It is well stocked with everything you could possibly need and its garden is a beautiful and tranquil place to relax and unwind. The AGA cooker was a particularly wonderful surprise that added to the authenticity and pleasure we had during our stay. Highly recommended.

Lovely airy detached coach house with tasteful furniture and decoration. The house benefits from a large courtyard garden which was a great space although the road was did appear slightly noisy but I think that might be connected to the local haymaking which was in progress during our stay. The property has the benefit of an enclosed orchard which was a wonderful space to exercise the dogs.

We spent 7 nights at the Pump house with our young working cocker Spaniel. Easy to find even in the dark as we arrived very late. The location is perfect plenty of walks from the door step, there is a public footpath which runs through the garden, so you do get walkers passing through. The public footpath will take you to the Crown pub which has a great beer garden and serves very good food. We also ate at the Anchor which was recommended by the team and had a wonderful Sunday roast there. The house itself is small but feels spacious. We had a week of sun so no need for any heating.

You have everything you need, beds are comfy. Minor comments, a hand towel in the kitchen would be good, the TV is a bit small as it's a fair distance from the sofa. Lastly this is disabled specific, the rugs in the room aare all a trip hazard. Personally I think the barn would be better with no rugs.
