From the moment we drove up the beautiful driveway of the farm, we knew we would love it! The location is idyllic and so peaceful. You would need a car however you are perfectly located as you are about half an hour from many great places: Southwold, Walberswick and Dunwich (our favourite beaches), Minsmere, Norwich, Ipswich, Rendlesham Forest to name but a few! Then after a day exploring you can take a short drive back to your lodge and enjoy the beautiful fields and lovely gardens to walk round.
The accommodation is great. The old building has been beautifully renovated and made into a perfect holiday lodge. The kitchen is well equipped with plenty of cooking pots and pans and utensils. The beds are very comfortable and the furnishings throughout are high quality.The exposed beams add the charm that the building naturally has.
The lodge has a large window looking over fields and is very private. There is a patio area and a lovely lawned patch which are private. The owners also encouraged us to walk around their gardens which were lovely.
The property is owned and run by John and Lorna. We stay in cottages a lot and we believe this couple to be the most welcoming and accommodating people that we have met when renting properties. They showed us round then made it very clear that we must ask if we needed anything! They went out of their way to make our stay as enjoyable and comfortable as possible. They have 3 lovely dogs who loved to say hello and they were very welcomed by us and our toddler!
We will most definitely stay again and are just deciding on a good date for the summer.
