Couldn't fault it. A beautifully situated, extremely warm, cosy and comfortable home from home, with wonderfully landscaped gardens down to the river. Must be wonderful in the summer - the winter was pretty enough. Excellent views and skies, birds and their sweet song all around us.

A great week. We have spent a lot of time in the lower garden watching the Kingfisher's comings and goings. We sat away from the decking as the nest is under the bank below the decking. The cottage is superber, everything well thought out. A trip to the Indian in Wickham Market was a bonus. Excellent service and the food was subtle with loads of flavour, better than a fine dining establishment in Cambridge.

A lovely week in a beautiful cottage and amazing garden. The Kingfisher on the river was a treat. Lots of lovely dog walks, can recommend the footpath to Cove hive beach which dogs are allowed on. Very quiet sandy beach just up from Southwold. Thank you for such a well equipped dog friendly cottage.

A wonderful and peaceful break. We love the peace and quiet, watching the Hares in the next field along, with a fleeting glance of Deer, the Kingfisher but alas no Otter. Thank you for your hospitality. P.s great sighting if a Barn Owl hunting!

Well equipped cottage, lovely outlook , warm and comfortable interior. ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Had a lovely week in Akenfield Cottage. The cottage is bright and very well equipped and it is lovely and warm and has a lovely outlook from both sides of the main room. The weather was very windy during some of our week but we were warm and cosy indoors and relaxed as we enjoyed playing the board games and reading. Went out on the best days and really enjoyed visiting Flatford Mill and looking around some of the very pretty Suffolk villages.

We've had a lovely stay and walked our socks off! The book on walks in Suffolk at the cottage was invaluable. Great long walk around the boundary of Minsmere with the dog. Another lovely one around Walberswick to Southwold, followed by fish n chips in Southwold at Mr T's. Be sure to get cakes and sour dough bread at the Two Magpies bakery in Southwold - amazing. Roo our dog has loved chasing Rabbits and fell in the River once. Great cottage, lovely and quiet, gutted we didn't see a Kingfisher! Comfy Bed and sofas, thank you.

Lovely comfortable cottage - stunning garden despite the drought. Loved the river, saw Kingfisher & Jays and caught a few minuscule fish. Enjoyed tomatoes and Cucumber from the greenhouse, thanks. Great cycling country, even for us as occasional cyclists. Lovely meal at the Unruly Pig in Bromeswell and the Butley Oysterage in Orford on the coast. Also a nice sandwich lunch at the Crown in Great Glemham, easy cycling distance. Many thanks to David & Ruth for a relaxing holiday & to Molly of course.

Beautiful location and lovely cosy property with gorgeous garden and views. The rowing boats added a little fun and the provision of quality garden furniture and deck by the river was ideal for sitting in the early evening shade with a glass of wine as well as lounging in the sun. If you love nature it’s easy to absorb all that it offers here

From finding the cottage on the website, to booking, paying deposit etc everything went incredibly smoothly.

Had a lovely time in a lovely cottage which lived up to expectations - bed and pillows wonderfully comfy too!

This is an idyllic cottage and perfect weather enabled us to get the best of it. The river with its beautiful lilies, is marvellous. The local lanes are great for cycling. In 15 consecutive years of visiting this wonderful part of Suffolk, this is the best accommodation we've discovered yet.

Mr & Mrs Harper

15 Jun 2018

The greeting and warmth received upon our arrival continued throughout our two weeks stay. The accommodation etc lived up to our expectations in that it proved to be very relaxing, comfortable and set in a tranquil part of Suffolk. No stone had been left un-turned to make our stay as enjoyable as can be. We thoroughly enjoyed going through the 'air lock' (inner and outer gate) to both enter and exit the premises, with Molly chasing around trying to avoid capture. Doubtless we shall return one day! Thank you Ruth & David & Molly

Thank you so much for the warm welcome is has been lovely meeting yourself and Molly. This was our first holiday with Holly & Zima and I am so please we spent it at Akenfield Cottage. Thank you for the supply of extra towels and treats,. We had the entire spectrum in terms of weather during our stay but nothing that prevented us from doing what we planned, Aldeburgh, Thorpeness, Felixstowe, Dunwich Woodbridge, we have two very tired and fulfilled puppies. Your gardens are stunning and it has been wonderful hearing/seeing nature you rarely do in the City (including a Jay on our last morning) Thanks again, hope to see you again in the future.
