“Fantastic farmhouse! Perfect location!”
Reviewed 19 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We hired dove farmhouse for a family get together as my brother came home from Aus for a few weeks! There were 14 adults - three generations!! We couldn't believe how spacious it was! There was plenty of room for everyone to spread out! Games room was a bonus. Although the house was big it was still very homely! Garden was big with plenty of room for the youngsters to play cricket, badminton and have a kick around!! Plenty of seating for everyone inside and out with a lovely big barbeque which we made use of! surrounding area is beautiful! Had a nice lunch at the queens head in eye! Osksmere hotel is about a 5 to 10 minute walk down the road and although being refurbished there is still a nice bar and restaurant serving food and the grounds are lovely! Had a nice Sunday lunchtime drink there! Caroline, the property manager was really helpful responding quickly to my queries. I would recommend this property for any age. I would definitely go back without a doubt!! Superb!!

“Perfect for large groups with kids”

We recently hired Dove Farmhouse for Easter weekend and what a beautiful house it is. There were 6 families in total, 11 adults and 6 young children. The space is very generous and we certainly didn't feel on top of one another. There are plenty of bathrooms so no waiting around to have a shower. We ordered a large grocery shop delivered from the local supermarket so we were well stocked and didn't need to leave the whole weekend other than for a little trip to Jimmy's Farm about 35 min drive away. A nice little attraction for young kids.
It's a fantastic house and I would highly recommend to any groups of friends especially with young children. Safe garden, great new BBQ, lovely rooms, towels and linen and a wonderful welcome basket of cakes and goodies. We will be returning.

We stayed in Dove Farmhouse with our extended family for my wife's 40th birthday. The house was well presented and a fantastic hamper awaited us on arrival. Our children loved the spacious garden for running around and playing. The kitchen is very large and was great for meal times. Separate lounges meant adults and children had space to themselves and the games room was a brilliant extra. Loved this property and would rate it in the top 3 of rental properties I have stayed in.

“We all enjoyed the weekend so much, we have already booked the same weekend for next year”

The accomodation was first class, and with 3 living rooms, there was plenty of space for everyone to spread out. The games room was well equipped and used. Walking to the nearest small town (2.5miles) across open fields was very enjoyable, where we found all you could wish for. The Swan at Hoxne did us proud, letting us take over the dining room on Sat night, with excellent food. The farmhouse kitchen/diner seated all of us easily, with good cooking facilities......difficult to improve on. Really snug and warm all weekend.
