    A hidden gem in the Suffolk countryside. If you want an idyllic retreat for 2 and man's best friend we cannot recommend it highly enough. The owners June and Nic were delightful, very friendly and blessed with a wealth of local knowledge.

    This converted dairy has been renovated to the highest specification and is truly characterful, situated in the prettiest of gardens in a lovely part of the countryside. The hosts were extremely welcoming and their attention to detail was second to none. We highly recommend Simper's Drift.

    We enjoyed our stay at Simper's Drift where the owners were very good to us. A supply of milk and some white wine on arrival was much appreciated. It was not far from the A12 where you could drive to all centres (Southwold etc.) Equipment was OK but does need a bread knife. Briefing by owner was OK but does need to explain where to find handbooks for equipment to save needless enquiries.

    June and Nick Wright are wonderful hosts and have a lovely and well-appointed property at Great Glemham. Perfect for two. Only one minor caveat: you have to be careful not to bang your head on the beams upstairs, unless you are only 5'2". No shop in the village, but a decent pub with grub within easy walking distance, and an excellent farm shop just down the road in the next village.

    We had a five night stay at Simpers Drift, with our dog Dylan, and had a great time in an excellent cottage. Simpers Drift is comfortable, well equipped, immaculately clean and in a great, peaceful location. June and Nic are excellent hosts. Lots of places to visit nearby and the local pub, The Crown, is just a short walk away and it does very good food. We are looking forward to visiting the area again and will stay at Simpers Drift. Highly recommended.

    My husband and I had a fabulous long weekend stay at Simpers Drift in early December. The cottage is comfortable, spotless, well-equipped, cozy and warm. I hope to return to Simpers Drift next year.
