We had to cancel a foreign holiday and chanced upon School Farm Cottages, recommended by a friend on Facebook. We are a family of five and stayed in Swan Cottage, the smallest of the cottages, for seven nights. It was delightful from start to finish. The farm itself is very well tended - lawns green and mowed, pretty pond with... More

Just come back from a lovely week at School Farm Cottages. We arrived on the Saturday to be met by Claire who couldnt have been any more welcoming and filled us in on everything we needed to know. The cottage we stayed in (Bell) was immaculate with everything you could need for your stay. You will need to drive but... More

We booked Bell, Swan and Silverleys cottages for an away day from work. The cottages provided comfortable and practical accommodation for the 3 nights we were away and the meeting room (used normally as a bad weather games room) was perfect for our requirements with a flipchart, pens, water, tea and coffee provided (there's also a screen for presentation, a...

We stayed for three days and took our tandem. We enjoyed two cycling days in the very nice lanes in the vicinity. This is our second stay - we enjoyed our first so much!

It was a pleasure to welcome you - and the tandem - back again. What a lovely way to get out and about on Suffolk's quiet lanes taking in our gently rolling countryside. Several of our guests have used our cycle hire recently and it's lovely to see them pedal off down the farm drive - I am starting to... More

Thank you very much. It's always nice to see the little ones enjoying the play area and garden while the grown ups relax knowing the children are safe while they are playing.

We had a lovely few days at School Farm Cottages. The setting was beautiful and extremely family friendly. The grounds allowed our small son to run around safely and enjoy the outdoors. The owners were very welcoming. The accommodation was comfortable and well equipped - and we made great use of the BBQ! Thank you very much!

We booked this at the very last moment and were not disappointed. Swan Cottage was in an excellent location, spotlessly clean, extremely well equipped and was bright, sunny, warm and had lovely views.A welcome pack was provided. We hired bicycles from the farm for a (short) ride around the quiet, empty lanes which suited us oldies and proved we could... More

We recently returned to School Farm Cottages with family, renting three cottages between us for a week, and had a marvellous time. Great accomodation, spotlessly clean, with a warm and attentive welcome - who could ask for more from a family holiday? The kids enjoyed visiting the horses, lambs, rabbits and ducks, and collecting the free eggs. The owners even... More
