Wheelwrights is in Kersey Upland, a small hamlet one mile from the picturesque village of Kersey in the wilds of Suffolk, halfway between Sudbury and Ipswich, ideal for walking or cycling.

A very well appointed converted barn in an idyllic location. The lounge is large with plenty of space for eating and lounging. Other facities are well planned with a high quality of provision. Location is good being within walking distance of the pictureque village of Kersey and a short drive to Lavenham and Hadleigh.

Management response:

Many thanks for your review. It is very satisfying to hear that you have enjoyed your stay. We aim to treat guests as we would close friends and the cottage is fitted out to a standard that we would expect if we were staying there.
