The Grain Store is exactly as lovely as it looks in the photos. We were welcomed with flowers, wine, milk and local homemade biscuits. There is a lovely garden area. It is clean and comfortable with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside
(but because it is out in the country you need to have a car).
Will certainly return for another stay.
This is a delightful little hideaway in the middle of the countryside but only 10 minutes drive from Southwold.
The Grain Store is very tastefully and carefully fitted out making full use of the space. It was perfect for 2 for a long weekend. The only draw back is not having a shower, but it's hard to see how you could fit one in!
The owners, Mark and Sarah, had left a bottle of wine, some milk and some biccies as a welcome as well as fresh flowers. The gardens which adjoin the main house, are really delightful and we watched out for the barn owl nesting in the new owl box.
A very pleasant spot and very convenient for exploring the coastline, nature reserves etc.
Could not fault the quality of the Grain Store - brilliant break. We hope to return soon!!
Would highly recommend
My daughter [ adult] and I had a short stay at the Grainstore. I have stayed in surrounding areas several times but this was my first stay in this accommodation. We were made to feel very welcome and all the useful items were available for us- washing up liquid, tea towels, soap, milk, biscuits, wine and more. Although the kitchen is small, it has been carefully thought out and well stocked.
We both slept well as the beds were very comfortable. The quaint sloping ceilings do not allow adequate space for wardrobes but there were places to hang clothes and cupboard space. We would love to return - thank you for a great holiday in a great location.
We wanted two days away in Southwold, and The Grain Store seemed a good option as it was slightly outside the more touristy area plus it was really reasonably priced. I liaised with Mike throughout the booking process, and he was so obliging and friendly. We had a bottle of wine, a pint of milk, and biscuits waiting for us on arrival, and we were instantly charmed by the setting. The accomodation is clean, warm and very comfortable, and the views are beautiful. I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone. Thank you for a wonderful weekend Mike and Sarah- we will see you again for sure.
I stayed with my wife and one year old baby during high season (August). The property is in a great location and was great value- in comparison to other holiday lets in the area surrounding Southwold. It was perfect for my family as my one year old could crawl around on the same level as us while we prepared dinner or relaxed. The views from the cottage were lovely and the garden was very pretty. Basically it had everything we needed, including table tennis. The owners were really welcoming and kind, giving us wine and biscuits on arrival. They set up a cot area for my son and even brought him toys to play with.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this place. Even on a day when it was bad weather, it was great as we had a cosy hideaway to watch DVD's in.
Thanks again to the Butt family for a great stay. Our only regret is that we could not stay longer.
