“Excellent property in a perfect location for the ideal break with dogs”
Reviewed 1 week ago for a stay in June 2018

A great property located on a working farm at the entrance road to Sutton Hoo, very clean and spacious, with folding doors opening to a small enclosed garden. Located just a short distance from the very friendly owner's own property so right on hand for any help or suggestions, yet facing away so you have the privacy often lacked with close proximity properties. Two double bedrooms, both ensuite, a large open plan kitchen and dining area, together with a comfortable living space overlooking the garden and patio area. Most relaxing break in years and only a short drive (5 mins) into the lovely village of Woodbridge or 20 mins to the beach.

“Little gem”
Reviewed 3 weeks ago for a stay in June 2018

Located just outside woodbridge this little gem of a cottage is well maintained,clean & has everything you’ll need for a great stay, close to shops,pubs,restaurants & some lovely country walks. Helen the owner was very welcoming leaving us wine & milk for our arrival & also popping in to see if we had everything we needed. If you want to discover Suffolk shearers cottage would make an ideal base. Will definitely be returning x

“Perfect For Coast and Countryside”
Reviewed May 28, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

We stayed in Shearer's Cottage this weekend. It was very clean, the kitchen really well equipped and the beds were so comfy, the fenced garden is excellent with the dogs. Family came to visit us for the day and the children loved the wooden play equipment and the trampoline which is sunk into the ground. It was just so relaxing sat outside the cottage first thing in the morning and in the evenings watching the rabbits and squirrels. Woodbridge is so close if you want abit of shopping, Baudsey is lovely for a coastal stroll and there are plenty of other walks .We really didn't want to leave, and hope to go back very soon.

Cottage was clean, quite and well equipped. Thank you Helen for obtaining a shower seat for my elderly Grandma, and it was lovely to have a Christmas tree. We will come again.

Shearers Cottage is just perfect, very comfortable and with everything you need including dishwasher, washing machine etc. and is ideal for a family, with swings and a trampoline, indoor games and DVDs. The location is secluded but within easy reach of Suffolk's attractions. We had a little trouble finding the cottage because our SatNav sent us somewhere else but if you turn into the road signposted Sutton Hoo from the main road (B1083) the cottage is just on the right. The owner is very friendly and welcoming and has paid a great deal of attention to detail and guests' needs, even leaving us tea, coffee, milk etc. and a bottle of wine - very thoughtful and appreciated when all you want when you arrive is a nice cup of tea !!!
Overall a brilliant place to stay and you certainly will not regret it.
