We recently stayed here for just one night !after visiting Leiston during the day , which was a great shame as this is such a beautiful place to stay. The setting adjacent to Leah and Julian's home is lovely to look at and very peaceful - it feels as though you have the place to yourself. With a large floor to ceiling glass door along one wall you feel as though the room and the garden are one but there are wonderfully heavy drapes to keep out the light in the morning.....if that is what you like. Another small window on the other side looks over towards their house. The bedroom is very comfortable with some beatiful fabrics and furnishings and a very large bed. The ceiling beams add to the ambience. Though a door is a large wardrobe and then the shower room - also spacious and well appointed. It all feels very self contained and has a wonderfully restful atmosphere. The decor is very tasteful and has some lovely artwork.
There are plenty of places to eat within an easy drive including Woodbridge itself although we ate at a local pub about 5 mins away - very convenient.
We felt very spoilt indeed being served breakfast in our room by both Leah and Julian the next morning especially with eggs laid just that morning by their hens. Sumptuous breakfast on beautiful linen and lovely ceramics. We also felt a bit guilty that we just couldn't eat everything they provided........just too much for us.
As everyone else has said Leah and Julian were so friendly towards us even though we were only there for one night. It was so nice to meet them and share a part of their property. They are a really charming couple.
I do hope that we will have the opportunity to visit again and have no hestitation in recommending anyone else to stay there.
