    The Old School House is a lovely place to stay - clean, well-equipped and comfortable. The owner was extremely helpful, kind and thoughtful, with supplies of milk, bread, tea, coffee and toiletries provided ready for us, as well as a tasty fruit cake - thank you! It was good to have two televisions in the two sitting rooms, so that we could each watch different programmes. There is a useful bus service to Bury St Edmunds and Sudbury from outside the door. The cottage is warmly recommended.
