Very friendly welcome, lovely cottage.

This is a first class property situated in an ideal spot to explore Suffolk. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay exploring the area and wish we had booked for longer - a week is not long enough, especially when at the end of the day you can return to all the home comforts at the cottage.

A stunning cottage, beautifully and sympathetically renovated, with a lovely private courtyard garden. Cleanliness was exceptional throughout. The wine and milk left in the fridge was a thoughtful touch.

Reviewed by Roger, 13th May 2017

Very highly recommended. This is a lovely cottage in perfect condition. It has been renovated to an extremely high standard. The thoughtful extras provided by the owners are a lovely touch and the private enclosed courtyard cannot be fully appreciated from the picture. It is fairly central for all the attractions that Suffolk has to offer. The locaRead morel pub (which is yards away from the cottage) was undergoing a change of management when we were there but others are only a short drive away. Hide

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Laburnum cottage. Our host was extremely accommodating with our arrival times and had the woodburner on the go ready for our arrival! They could not have been more helpful. The cottage is beautiful and has a lovely courtyard to enjoy a morning coffee in tbe sun. Lots of lovely country walks in the vicinity. LocatioRead moren was good, Bury St Edmunds and everywhere else we visited seemed to be about a 30min drive. Would definitely love to stay here again. Hide

We had a great two week stay in the cottage. It's in a good location, with lots of walks to do, and the town of Stowmarket is only a short drive away. The cottage is comfortable, very well presented and well equipped. We appreciated all the thoughtful touches throughout the cottage.

Reviewed by Rachel, 29th December 2016

Laburnum Cottage has been beautifully refurbished to a very high standard and great care has been taken over all the little details to provide a really cosy and comfortable ambiance. After various days out in the surrounding area we couldn't wait to get back and get the fire going! A real treat for city dwellers like ourselves.
