“Wonderful barn accommodation in beautiful location”
Reviewed August 23, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We stayed in the summer holidays for a week with our two children and had a really wonderful stay !
The barn was gorgeous to stay in, luxuriously fitted out without being austere or cold and was beautifully clean and tidy. Our kids loved the idea of staying in a barn and they weren't disappointed !
The location is stunning and although its feels rural you are not far from some great locations to visit too. Somerleyton hall is not far and was beautiful even in the rain! Brill cafe/restaurant with delicious sandwiches and cakes!
when the weather was good we drove 25 mins to Beccles which was a lovely little town with great shopping and an outdoor heated pool which although got busy was very great fun !
Although we visited in the summer, we can really imagine Marsh cottage being a wonderfully cosy stay in the winter too. The barn is so well equipped you don't actually feel as if you need to leave it and you can just relax there or go walking locally.
Many thanks to Jan, the owner who was very helpful when we needed him too!

“Owner went out of his way to make us comfortable”
Reviewed June 8, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

This dog-and-child-friendly property is set in stunning countryside with beautiful walks directly on the doorstep. Jan went out of his way to make us comfortable, providing (unasked) an extra 'day bed' for husband-with-a-bad-back and when the batteries for the DVD remote died he replaced the whole machine within minutes.

The property was spotlessly clean and exactly what we wanted for an out-doorsy long weekend with dog and children. Only thing I'd change: the main entrance goes straight onto carpet, which was nightmarish for dog-with-just-washed-feet, although we got around it by tying her up at the top of the external stairs. When you re-decorate, Jan, tiles would be so much easier upstairs as well as downstairs. Thank you for making us so welcome.

“Perfect little cottage. Very impressed”
Reviewed May 20, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

It is an absolute must for anyone looking into staying around this area of East Anglia. We just booked last minute for a short weekend break. To be honest we loved it so much we hardly left the cottage. It is ideal for a party of up to 4. It is like bringing your home with you so warmly. We will return!!! It has everything you need. Thanks for letting people use this beautiful property because if it was mine I would live in it!
