I stayed here with four of my friends last week and found the hosts Claire and David extremely welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble and they made me feel very much at home. There is plenty to get up to in the surrounding areas. A relaxing visit!

We stayed in Silverleys cottage for 1 week. The owners are really friendly cottage was spotless and there were nice touches left to greet us e.g., Radio Times. It was warm and very comfortable and the facilities met all our needs well. Our children were particularly enamored with all the facilities and animals and lets not forget the tractor ride... More

We returned to School Farm Cottages after a 10 year break and found it was every bit as good as we remembered. A beautiful setting, immaculate cottage and a very warm and friendly welcome. We won't be leaving it too long before visiting again!

Our short stay was the perfect break from it all for adults and two 5.5 years olds. We spent a day at the beach, one fishing and going for a walk, and the next crabbing at Walberswick. It was the perfect end to the summer. The kids loved going with David and Claire to open up the rabbits, and chickens.... More

I make it seven! Thank you so much for returning to stay with us year after year. It is always lovely to see guests relaxing in the grounds, and it was especially nice to see your family's annual fishing competition taking place.

I just came back from a 2 week stay at bell cottage, we came as a group and took all the cottages. I found David and Claire to be most helpful and patient with us. I enjoyed all the amenities on site especially the games room and the fishing. I would highly recommend these cottages for any discerning traveler.

Was our second visit - 10 years apart! Still as lovely as we remember with additions of a games room and more garden area. Cottage was equipped with everything we needed, quiet area with enough to occupy the family too. Claire and David very friendly and accommodating. Will be back before another 10 years passes!!!!
