On a cold weekend you would hope that a holiday cottage would be a cosy retreat - not so this one, what's more the owner wants payment for wood for the fire just to bring the temperature up to something habitable. There is no clothes dryer and no DVD player (contrary to the ads). No visit from the the owner to check on the central heating or to tell us the basics such as where to put the rubbish. Overall the property did not live up to expectations.
I am sure things look very different in the summer. The surrounding Suffolk villages and countryside are of course great.
Stayed as went to see my father who lives in hadleigh so arrived late but no problems lights were on and place very warm.
Woodburner gave additional comfort but you will need a car but taxis were cheap.
Will want to go back
Had a wonderful family holiday plus dog and discovered Suffolk. I would recommend this cottage to anyone..and enjoy the fantastic secret gardens..
We booked this cottage as it was central and could accommodate a family of 5 adults and our dog, we were not disappointed. It was a 10-15 minute stroll to the high street through lovely grounds and countryside. The cottage had everything we needed and was very clean, it wouldn't take much to up the rating it's been given, if I was being very picky I would have wanted a dishwasher and power shower, but that's just me.
