My husband and I stayed at the cottage February 2nd to 6th. When we arrived the fire was on and music playing. Perfect start to a fantastic week. We went for walks everyday. Wildlife was amazing. We went to 'jimmys farm' for a 'farmers greedy breakfast' which we would reccommend. It's junction 56 on a14. Hot tub at night time... More

Loved it, Loved it! Very clean, tidy imaculate decor throughout. Very peaceful in the middle of lovely fields with beautiful widelife. Gorgeous hot tub which was hot even in the snow. We will be going back in the summer. Would recomend this to anyone needing a much deserved relaxing break. All very close to local towns, cathedrals and museums. Lovely... More

My husband and I were looking for a last minute break to get out of the city and came across Read Hall. We booked via email and Andy was very accommodating and helpful. When we arrived, we found that the pictures do not do the cottage justice – it is well presented, clean and very nicely decorated. We had everything... More

We were after a cosy, romantic, secluded cottage for two. And Read Hall Cottage fitted the bill completely. Excellent furnishings, with an eye for design detail. Lovely touches like bread and milk provided and a menu of other local foods that you can order in advance. A proper aga-style cooker -great for warming birthday croissants... And despite days of grim... More

Just returned from long weekend at Read Hall Cottage. What a fantastic place to stay and the best self catering accomodation we have stayed in. Everything you need is provided. Being December the weather was chilly but the cottage delightfully warm and cosy and of course the hot tub was sublime even with frost under foot!

Just returned from Read Hall Cottage in Suffolk. It really is a luxury hideaway, set in the middle of the country side.The cottage itself is very homely with modern decor and a outside hot tub. Lots of wildlife to see, Bury St Edmund's is not far and the quaint village of Lavenham is a must see. Felixstowe and Bawdsey Quay... More

Stayed at read cottage 5 times in the past seven years. Each time the place seems more beautiful than before. Owners are fantastic, there if you need them but never see them otherwise. Really wonderful place which we will return to again

We stayed at Read Hall Cottage last week for our 2nd wedding anniversary and so glad we did! A beautiful cottage tastefully decorated (with the odd quirk, loved the bird leg stool!) and so comfortable. Four poster bed which was so comfy you don't want to get out. The cottage is facing away from the owners home (which itself is... More

We spend a relaxing week here for our 20th wedding anniversary. The cottage was beautifully set out and decorated in a warm/romantic and welcoming environment. The grounds/surroundings/views were stunningly breathtaking and to top it off the hot tub is amazing!! We felt like we were on our own island in the lovely English countryside. This is the first time we... More

There is not really anything more that I can say that other reviews have not said. We stayed over the August Bank Holiday weekend and like everyone else, made full use of the brilliant Hot Tub!! The cottage is clean and warm with absolutely everything you need. It is so peaceful eating breakfast out on the decking in the early... More
