“Whatever Your Age”
Reviewed 28 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

you'll enjoy the facilities at Walnut House. The garden, swimming pool, table tennis & pool table give ample scope for family Olympics (so we did), while the upstairs decking had a wonderful view of that big Suffolk sky with the occasional barn owl swooping past. Hard to beat.

“Another perfect stay thank you Wendy and Chris :)”
Reviewed 16 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

I recently stayed at Walnut House for the third year running with a group of friends and we can't recommend it highly enough - we have already booked our fourth stay there after only returning a couple of weeks ago :)

The house has so many great facilities such as an indoor swimming pool, hot tub, pool table and bar and a lovely garden and balcony overlooking the countryside. The house is really modern and is beautifully decorated. As always the house was absolutely spotless and we received a lovely welcome pack on arrival.

The house is in a great location with lots of things nearby to do such as hiring boats on the broads, hiring bikes, going to the local beach, or going to the local zoo and theme park.

Thank you Chris and Wendy for being so welcoming and friendly, we are already looking forward to returning next year and are so glad we discovered walnut house as we can't imagine finding anywhere else that would beat it :)

“Wonderful family break & baby's first holiday!”
Reviewed 11 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

person found this review helpful

We have just returned from a wonderful week stay at this fabulous property. We stayed as a family group of 8 (+2 dogs), with ages ranging from 5 months to 82. Although we are very local to the area, we decided on this property as we knew we would have a new addition to the family & didn't want to travel abroad or too far, to celebrate a very special 50th Birthday! Once we drove through the gates we could have been anywhere so it still felt like a real holiday for us, with the added ease of having home not too far away should there have been any issues with the baby.

Chris & Wendy were very welcoming from the start, with email enquiries & questions before our stay always answered quickly. One of the perks of being local also meant that a couple of us were able to pop by before check in to decorate with a few birthday balloons & banners. We were greeted with such a warm welcome & given a small tour at this time by Wendy & Chris, before the full tour when the rest of the family arrived. We loved the property from the moment we stepped in the front door & were then excited for the rest of the family to arrive as we knew they would love it too.

The house is fantastic & really seems to have it all. Another bonus (in our eyes) to being local meant we didn’t want to rush out during the day to visit any local attractions & instead just wanted to enjoy the relaxing break while utilizing all that Walnut House had to offer. Our days were spent enjoying leisurely swims, relaxing chats sat in the warmth of the hot tub, attempting to play pool, darts & table tennis (yes I know, I am awful at all 3 at these – my technique is more “hit it & hope” than skill!), sitting in the garden with our dogs lapping up the lovely sun we were very lucky to have & just enjoying taking it slow away from all the “jobs” we all had to do in our own homes. My little boy turned 5 months old while at the house & it was his very first holiday, he loved it & being able to take him swimming every day was so lovely. Chris even turned the pool temperature up a few degrees for us to make it that bit warmer for the baby.

The facilities at the house are plentiful & the kitchen is well stocked with everything you may need from frying pans to champagne glasses. We were delighted with our welcome hamper, which included butter, bread & other lovely goodies. The rooms were beautifully decorated, clean & light, with lovely en-suite bathrooms & comfy beds. The lounge diner was a great area to gather as a group & enjoy evening meals, all sat at the big table. The upstairs balcony was a wonderful sun trap & a great place to spot wildlife. The downstairs area was a great entertainment hub, with enough space for everyone to do their own thing if wanted.

We thoroughly enjoyed our family break here & im sure we will be back. What stood out over & above everything else was how welcoming & kind Chris & Wendy were, you only have to scan through the guestbook in the house to see this is a common theme to everyones stay. Good customer service goes an awful long way & we really felt as if nothing was too much trouble. Thank you for helping 4 generations enjoy a wonderful family break together. xx

“Wonderful all round holiday accommodation”
Reviewed 29 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

The owners, Chris and Wendy, gave us a great welcome and had even decked out the downstairs room to reflect a birthday that we were celebrating. Throughout our stay they were very helpful but totally unobtrusive.

The property is exactly as advertised. The bedrooms were nicely decorated and comfortable. The first floor living/dining area provides plenty of space and leads to a terrace overlooking open countryside. The lift makes it easily accessible for those with mobility problems.

The ground floor is excellent housing the games room (with Sky TV), swimming pool and hot tub. All of these facilities were well used during our stay.

Overall, this is an excellent property for groups and is well situated to access what the wider area has to offer. We will be looking to re-book.

“HIGHLY RECOMMENDED>>>5 STARS!”
Reviewed 3 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Just returned from our Family weekend at Walnut House and it was amazing. They have a Gold Star award from the English Tourist Board and it is richly deserved. The hosts, Chris & Wendy French are friendly, amiable and always at the end of the phone if you need any help. The indoor pool is perfect for adults and kids alike being roughly 4 ft deep all over; the hot tub is sheltered and well maintained and the bedrooms are tastefully decorated to an individual 'Boutique Hotel' style. If you are looking for a large 5 bed house with indoor pool, games room and hot-tub then look no further than Walnut House. You will not be disappointed!
