• About Crossbow Cottage

    Just 5 miles from the Suffolk Heritage Coast, this unique gem of a property was formerly an 18th century coaching inn on the Henham country estate. Retaining a wealth of original features, it is perfect for holidays and short breaks, whatever the season. With its own south facing garden and delightful private hot tub, it is the middle one of three cottages adjoining the owners’ home but with its own parking area and gate. You are only 5 miles from Southwold, a lovely seaside town famous for its pier, pretty beach huts, quaint shops, good restaurants and Adnams beer. Crossbow Cottage is ideally located close to the home of Latitude Festival, just 2 miles away. RSPB Minsmere and Dunwich Heath are nearby, whilst Sutton Hoo (NT), boat hire on the southern Norfolk Broads and the medieval city of Norwich are all within easy reach. Good local walking and cycling. Shop and pub under 1.5 miles.

    The cottage was smaller than I imagined and the lack of any modern technology baffled me. The bath was placed in the back of the room and washing was near impossible. However the cottage was clean but has many rules which do make you feel uncomfortable. Overall it was a pleasant experience but not really big enough for a family of four.

    Property not big enough for 6 adults -2 sleeping in lounge. Only 1 wardrobe in whole of property and 1 WC/Bathroom often a queue for the loo! Bath/shower a challenge as roof slopes over bath. No standing shower.

    Cottage was very clean and had very well equiped, with board games, toys for children and everything you could need in the kitchen. Loved the hot tub. Location was a bit remote in terms of going for a walk or walking to a pub, needed a car, although in a great location to get to points of interest. We had accidently turned the hot tub temperature up, hadn't realised, but came back to a post-it mentioning this, in a way that we had done it intentionally, rather than a more friendly note. Also had a delay of getting the deposit back of two days, due to there being a stain on one of the beds, which was my daughter's milk, which was obviously an accident, but again made to feel like this was intentional, rather than just an everyday thing that happens with children. We had tidied up everything else and left the cottage as we found it, but just felt this was a bit petty and didn't need to be mentioned as the owner then said they stain had come out. And full deposit was returned. Overall though a lovely stay.
