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! The cottage was excellent, the grounds are lovely and very peaceful surroundings. We also had secure storage for the tandem. We were made very welcome -... More

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

We had a great time here. Lovely accommodation. Claire and David are great hosts. Our son enjoyed seeing the farm animals and playing in the secure back garden. And we could collect our own eggs! Thank you

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. Good to see that collecting our fresh free-range eggs gets another mention! Our guests love helping themselves to fresh eggs for their breakfast and our varied collection of... More

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

Thank you so much for your kind review. It's always good to hear that the whole family have enjoyed their holiday. Staying at our cottages works particularly well for large family groups like yourselves renting several of the cottages at once, that way you can all be together but return to your own cottage when you want some time to...

Staying at School Farm is like stepping back in time; a return to old world charm and a slower pace of life, with the added bonus of a fun, safe environment for children ... and grown-up kids like my husband and me! It is a working farm so the owners, Claire and David, obviously work really hard. However, they manage... More

I stayed here with my 4 year old son. We had a wonderful time feeding the lambs and collecting freshly laid eggs every morning. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The accomodation was lovely and clean. Set in beautiful surroundings, this is one place we will definitely be visiting again. Thank you so much. Sam and Zach x

It is nice to hear you enjoyed your stay here. Thank you. Another comment on how lovely and clean the cottages are. I am very fortunate to have a lovely lady with the same high standards as I have who helps me keep the cottages immaculate, as well as some extra help outside to keep the grounds neat and tidy....

If you are looking for a relaxing break away this is worth considering. Our cottage was lovely and welcoming, clean and very well quipped. Great if you have children as there is a large secure grassed area behind the cottages for children to investigate and play safely allowing you to relax yourselves! Collecting eggs for breakfast was a novelty as... More
