“Excellant, recommended to anyone travelling to the area”
Reviewed July 10, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

stunning settings, outstanding cottage but OMG the noise....... there wasn't ANY except the sounds of chickens, pigeons and nature. we saw deer and foxes our daughter (7) was amazed and loved the stay, if you have a need to be in Bury ST Edmunds this would be the place to stay, the cottage has everything you would need the "local" serves excellant food and beers and town is a couple miles away.

“Lovely cottage, surrounded by beautiful scenery.”
Reviewed June 5, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We stayed at Forge cottage for 5 days at the end of May to visit family in Bury. It was a very short drive from the cottage to Bury, and there was a really good pub down the road.

The cottage itself was lovely inside, clean, modern and well furnished, with a high chair and portable crib for our little one. The owner was extremely helpful, when we needed a washing-up brush, he showed up with one really quickly.
The location is stunning with rolling hills and lots of room for a toddler to run around in.

Next time we're back in Bury we'll definitely stay here again.

“Perfect!”
Reviewed May 29, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

This is the most perfect cottage in the perfect location - very quiet, chickens and a lovely black lab running free around the cottage. The cottage is decorated to the higest spec and Rupert, the owner, who lives adjoining the cottage is incredibly helpful. He gave me fresh eggs - laid that morning from the hens. Ideal get away from it all location but still only a couple of miles to the buzzing town of Bury St Edmunds
