Juliet and Christopher are perfect hosts and have created an amazing space for a large group. We were there for my sisters hen weekend and it enabled us to have relaxation and fun at the same time. We visited Ipswich and chartered a boat, stayed more local for dinner in the lovely town of Sudbury and had a night in our PJ's and cooked in the well equipped kitchen. All the facilities at the bunkhouse are 5 star, the beds are ridiculously comfortable. Best night sleep I've had a for a while and I know the other girls agreed! We will definitely be back.
We had a wonderful weekend at the Brooder Bunkhouse. The bunkhouse was perfect for a party of 20 girls. The equipment in the property was first class, everything that you needed! Comfortable kitchen area to sit around and have drinks whilst cooking, perfect cosy lounge upstairs, with plenty of room for us to dance. The bedrooms were very good and lovely comfortable beds. Highly recommend the bunkhouse and will definitely return. The owners provided maps and guides for walks and the location was amazing.
Set in beautiful countryside, with plenty of outdoor space for a games-mad family. It exceeded all expectations in terms of value for money; well laid out for large groups, well equipped and comfortably furnished. Despite most of the accommodation being dorm style, everyone commented on how good the mattresses were, and we all loved the property's very individual, colourful style. Lots of good bathrooms and loos, so no queuing even at peak times! We only did one walk as this was a very overdue family catch up, and we mainly stayed around the house and garden, but it was clear from all the literature in the house, that the area would be an interesting one to explore. We would not hesitate to recommend this to friends or family- we had a wonderful weekend!
We had a fantastic weekend at the Bunkhouse - the accommodation is absolutely lovely and the surroundings are beautiful. The Bunkhouse is very comfortable and homely, with everything you could ever need. Lovely beds, kitchen and living room. Plenty of bathrooms and showers - a must for 15 ladies! We had the best fun, cooking together and eating round the lovely rustic farmhouse-style tables, playing games and doing crafts - as well as making a few cocktails! We did a wonderful circular walk to nearby Lavenham. It's a stunning little town, definitely worth a visit. Had lunch at Number Ten, which we would also recommend highly, the food was delicious and they catered for our large party without batting an eyelid. The owner, Juliet, came and greeted us and gave us information about the local area, which was a lovely friendly touch. To conclude - don't hesitate to book! It's such a great place to stay, I already want to go back - as do all the other ladies who stayed. Thank you!
The bunkhouse is really lovely, comfortable, beautiful accommodation. Bathrooms were clean and well finished. Really comfortable beds! It was a brilliant weekend for 3 families to meet and chill out together, walk around the countryside and enjoy time outdoors- even in february. The kitchen and dining area worked so well and the kitchen was really well equipped. It was a relaxing get away. Plenty of space for our guests, lovely bathrooms, brilliant games room and a very friendly host on hand.
Wow! What a fab place, the bunkhouse is amazing. Great kitchen/dining space for entertaining the ping pong table keep the kids busy for hours, we will definatly book again!!
Highly recommend this for big groups.
We were some of the first guests at the bunkhouse - so early that the turf had yet to be laid, but we could tell that once the grass had bedded in this was going to be a wonderful spot, looking out onto lovely rural views with plenty of walks possible right from the doorstop.
The bunkhouse is impeccably kitted out - there wasn't a single kitchen implement we were missing, the kitchen is cosy and has seating for large groups and there's a cosy sitting room up stairs with plenty of sofa space for all.
The bunks are gorgeously made and very comfortable. There's a big room that sleeps 10 in bunks, 2 much smaller rooms that sleep 2 each and then a further attic room with another 8 beds.
Only criticism - nowhere to put muddy boots when you come in from a walk as you walk straight into the kitchen - and we left them in the sheltered area outside the kitchen door, the rain still soaked them. Not sure what the solution is - maybe a covered boot rack outside the door?
