We visited in November and still enjoyed the location and cottage which was excellent. It would be lovely to spend a holiday in Spring/Summer because the facilities are wonderful. The garden is secure, our two dogs were safe and able to run free. We were left a lovely welcome bag with local goodies, much appreciated. We did leave a day earlier thenRead more planned, because of illness, but I could have stayed in this cottage for ever it was so welcoming and comfortable. I met the owner when walking the dogs, she was so pleasant and knowledgeable and welcoming. The White Horse Cottage is a property that I would recommend. Hide

The cottage was lovely, very clean and perfect for a short stay with our dog. There is a very well kept enclosed, dog-safe garden as well as beautiful footpaths which kept her entertained.

The cottage is well-appointed and the garden is secure for dogs. We particularly liked that plastic crockery and glasses were provided so that we could sit in the garden without worry. Being one one level with a walk in shower was brilliant for those of us who are not as mobile. We enjoyed ourselves so much, we have already booked again.

The cottage is excellent plus the gardens were immaculate well tended and dog proof so your dog cannot escape . And got grab rails in bathroom which was great.15 miles from southwold. And plenty of meadows to walk your dog . Goody bag was a nice surprise and fresh flowers and milk. Owners very friendly and informative.

Very nice cottage. Found the grab rails and handles very handy as I have balance issues. Bit cold and rainy for July but didnt mind as I dont like the hot weather. Nice drives around the country roads. Nice for a quiet holiday which is what I wanted. Lovely flower borders.

What a charming and peaceful hideaway. We spent a very relaxing week walking and exploring the Suffolk/Norfolk countryside, returning to White Horse Cottage with all the comforts of home. The kitchen was more than adequate with everything you could wish for and the King size bed was so comfortable. The cottage was spacious, beautifully furnished wiRead moreth ample storage and a lovely large bathroom with a walk in shower. We have never been to such a well-equipped holiday cottage before. Our dog enjoyed the enclosed garden which was very pretty with flowers bordering, and the outside table & chairs and sunbed were well used as we had glorious weather. Our hosts were friendly, knowledgeable and helpful and the welcome pack was splendid with all local items. Definitely a place we will return to. Hide
