“Wonderful house to stay in”
Reviewed March 15, 2015 for a stay in June 2014

We love the stay and the boys especially loved Luca the dog. the house was in a very quiet spot but very close to lots of things to do. Nothing bad to say about this property. Only wish had more time there.

“Very good value”
Reviewed December 29, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

This is a lovely spacious property with nice views over open countryside. We stayed over the Christmas period and the owners were very helpful and friendly. The kitchen was great for cooking and everything was spotlessly clean and tidy. I would suggest a bigger TV in the front room and some soap, shampoo and extra toilet rolls in the bathroom. Apart from that, I think that this represented excellent value accomodation.

“Perfect Property, Perfect Hosts.”
Reviewed October 8, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We received a very warm welcome from hosts Chris and Eppie. The property is maintained at a very high standard and benefits from a beautiful shared garden and sun trap decking. Although late in the season we had two sunny evenings in order to finish the summer alfresco! Very well situated for exploring the villages of Suffolk and Cambridge with useful hints from our hosts….. Not forgetting Luca, the resident dog, who's peace, quiet and privacy was totally disrupted by our 5mth old pup…Would highly recommend a stay at this property and thank you Chris and Eppie for a making our weekend a real pleasure!
