“exactly as advertised”

Reviewed 18 Aug 2014

ideal venue for a touring base,cottage just right for two.Out of the way and very peaceful.owners left us to our own devices.

“A bit off the beaten track but a wonderfully comfortable cottage”

Reviewed 27 Mar 2014

Spacious, well equipped and very comfortable. Dog friendly with its own garden (fully fenced so safe for dog to play in). Owners very friendly and helpful. Many excellent eating establishments within a short drive but because of the excellent cooking facilities at the cottage we did most of our own catering.

“Such a good time”

Reviewed 29 Aug 2013

Spacious rooms in a lovely cottage - the view from the back windows is full of beauty and wild-life. Inside, the cottage has enough of everything. we enjoyed the geese in the yard. There are so many places to visit and enjoy - Eye is elegant. Stowmarket's Museum of East anglian life is well done. Diss - go on market day, Friday, : there's a good street market: and the auction market, just five minutes walk away from the centre, is quite wonderful. Bury St Edmunds and Southwold good day excursions, and very different from each other. The best discovery were the windmill and watermill at Packenham. The wonderful weather helped. But we would have enjoyed it enormously whatever the weather. We like to be off the beaten track, and we know when we are near our destination when there's grass in the middle of the road. Lovely walks too but we were not able to walk any distances because of our knees. An Ordnance Survey Map will enhance your enjoyment.

“Peaceful setting with a lovely garden”

Reviewed 23 Aug 2013

Well presented, large & very clean cottage. The owners were friendly but left us to get on with our holiday. There were quite a few eating places within a short drive & the food was of a high standard.we did quite a lot of touring & the cottage was central to where we wanted to visit. Highlight of the hol was woodpeckers feeding on the bird feeder.

“Excellent, comfortable, spacious base for exploring East anglia”

Reviewed 22 May 2013

The Bothy is a little gem. Cheaper than many smaller, less well appointed or advantageously located properties. The welcome was warm, the hosts next door unobtrusive, and the various pets and farm yard neighbours a delight in this rural setting.Likes of Southwold, Ely and Bury St Edmunds all within an hour drive. Eye village is also well worth a visit.

“Comfy cottage”

Reviewed 22 May 2013

Friendly warm welcome .Really liked the bothy so comfy and cosy .Loved the vase of fresh Daffodils on kitchen table . Will definitley go again when we do the area again.

“The Bothy”

Reviewed 18 Apr 2013

We thought the Bothy was absolutely ideal for our type of holiday. There are plenty of walks and cycle rides and after a day of this it was lovely to come back to this lovely, well-equipped cottage. When everything is provided like this it is so easy to relax at the end of the day

“Relaxing break”

Reviewed 30 Sep 2012

The Bothy was lovely - the only thing that may have slightly marred our break was the weather. There had been a lot of rain prior to us visiting and most of the local footpaths were rather boggy. The village shop doesn't sell much and the nearest pub is the other side of a busy main road. But there is a nice shop next to a pub in the next village which is easily walkable (didn't try the pub but it looked nice). The cottage has everything you could need. One perhaps slight disadvantage, is the fact that the back garden is accessed through the lounge and not the kitchen, so you need to make sure your dog doesn't trek mud in!! Overall, a very nice cottage, in the countryside - ideal for a relaxing walking break.

“Fit for purpose”

Reviewed 28 May 2012

Have now stayed here twice and may well return. As a base for visiting friends in Norfolk and Suffolk, and also for house-hunting in the area, it's ideal. It's plain and unpretentious, but has everything one needs for a very comfortable stay.

“Wonderful, Relaxing and Peaceful experience”

Reviewed 8 Jan 2012

We had a late break looking to have a relaxing time to relieve some stress. Worked a treat. Owners were great and left us alone to do what we wanted. Found plenty of intereting places to visit. Within an hour of the coast. Several nice places to eat when you did not want to cook.
