Reviewed 2 days ago for a stay in April 2018

I've just returned from a weekend at the Moat House with friends, and as the previous reviewer said, the photos really don't do it justice. The weather was very warm for April so we were able to really enjoy the beautiful gardens and the heated pool. The house itself was spacious but with a cottagey feel, as it was full of character. It has two lovely log burners which it was sadly too warm to use! The owner has thought of everything needed for a self-catering holiday, and was at the property to meet us and make sure we were happy with the layout and information about heating, etc. The location is quiet and unoverlooked, with views of farmland to the rear. We hope to book again in the future, as we enjoyed a lovely relaxing stay.

Management response:

Thank you for your kind words. Very pleased you enjoyed your stay and look forward to meeting you again.

Photos don't do this place justice. It is a perfect retreat - tons of space and a relaxing feel to it. Just a short walk from the station so if you really want to hibernate for a week without a car this is totally possible. Alternatively a great base to explore the beautiful Suffolk countryside - beach meets country walks, cycles down the country lanes.

Management response:

Thank you for your lovely comments. Yes, it is a great place to relax.
