I cannot imagine a better autumn/winter break than at Souters Cottage. My wife Jan and I had three nights there, but wished it was longer; one of those rare places that is difficult to leave. We loved the open-plan lounge area with a warming fire, logs and kindling readily available, supplied by Nick. If you're not into log fires, the property is intelligently heated, including underfloor heating ( lovely touch. The kitchen is brilliantly equipped if you want to row the boat out and entertain some guests over lunch or dinner, or just keep it simple. But really the magic of the place is its tranquil setting. Nothing to do, but do nothing - in style! If you do want some extra-curriculars, the surrounding area, so-called " Constable Country" is beguilingly beautiful and villages like Dedham and Flatford are great locations to while away time. On that subject, Hall Farm/Dedham is a great spot to pick up great local produce. We purchased a 14lb pork joint and cooked it on the external wood-fired oven at Souters - well worth the effort! The adjacent 10 acres of coppice-managed woodland is beautiful and a credit to Nick. An evening walk towards the western boundary to watch the sunset over the valley is highly recommended. Our border terrier Wax loved the entire experience - and he's the boss! We look forward to our return with much anticipation. A big thank you to the owners, Nick and Cath, who couldn't have been more hospitable in their inimitable understated way. They have achieved something very special in the Suffolk countryside and have been prepared to share it. THANKS! Ged and Jan Egan
A gem of a property nestling in the heart of the countryside, with beautiful views both to the front and rear of the property. We immediately felt at home, which was important as we were between house moves.! The bedroom was light and airy, with plenty of space for hanging clothes. Very comfortable bed and nice bed linen. It was great to wake up to the lovely rural views. Although, the kitchen is small, it is well equipped. Very pleasant private garden, with rotary washing line. Although, off the beaten track it is only a short drive into Felixstowe which has a range of services. It is also in walking distance of the wonderful Artisan Smokehouse, a must for any visitor! They serve super lunches and sell wonderful products. The owners live next door to the cottage, and were very helpful throughout our stay.
