    Cottage is delightful and the owner very helpful, which was just as well because the printed instructions to find it were incorrect and we had to call him to get the correct ones.

    A most attractive cottage that was fully equipped almost like home from home. A most pleasant welcome pack with fresh milk, bottle of local apple juice and a pot of home made jam and a vase of fresh flowers on the table. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    A very disappointing stay. The cottage was very dismal and fusty downstairs especially. It was like staying in an elderly persons home where everything was dated,mismatched and well used with no attention to detail. On the whole it appeared clean but there were areas that needed attention, for example the cutlery drawer could have done with a clean and the wooden spatulas were very used and needed replacing to name but a few. I did not like the open staircase particularly having a young child with us. The beds were horrendous and very hard and uncomfortable so much so that it affected my back and joints which are problematic to myself and I returned home feeling quite unwell not having been able to get a comfortable nights sleep...this was also a problem for the other adult. The only time we used the tv for an hour the adjoining neighbour started hammering on the wall. Parking outside the property was a very minimal space and not suitable for a large vehicle and after being blocked in by the neighbour I parked on the road for 2 nights. All in all compared to other self catering accommodation I have had this has to be the worst value for money and comfort that I have experienced.

    Very comfortable and light. Suitable for families with older children. Steep open stair could be a challenge for the very young and the older visitors. Parking would more practical for a compact car. Overall an ideal cottage for visiting the Woodbridge area.

    Everything you need in this cute historic cottage. Good location for visiting local attractions like Sutton Hoo and Aldeburgh. There is a really pretty courtyard with a resident robin.
