Great location to visit East Anglia with a short drive to Bury St Edmunds!
Wonderful cottage for a five night stay with my daughter and two granddaughters. We walked to tea around the corner from the cottage. Although we didn’t call ahead to reserve for afternoon tea (recommended) we were graciously accommodated and thoroughly enjoyed the sandwiches, scones and desserts. Each evening we made a fire in the fireplace (purchased wood at nearby Tesco in Bury St Edmunds). Cooked some meals in and enjoyed nearby restaurants. Unfortunately we could not get a reservation at The Swan Restaurant as the place was sold out to a private party the night we stopped by (obviously well liked by the locals). It was great having two and a half bathrooms with four women. The Rose Cottage is definitely a place we’d return to when we visit East Anglia again!
Lovely cottage, lovely village.
Well renovate Cottage, only criticism is that the smaller double bed had a broken slat and was very soft to sleep on and the pillows in the twin and small double were very thin so had to double up with the spare rooms pillows as there were only four of us staying, so was possible.
Many thanks for your positive review. We will get a new stay for the double bed. Our apologies we didn’t know there was a problem so it’s helpful to have it pointed out. Our housekeeper had mentioned the pillows needed changing. Re the mattress being soft, previous guests from America found it too firm so I think this one is subject to individual perception and preference. Over all we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for our 5 stars. Thank you also for leaving Rose Cottage in good shape. You are always welcome to stay again. Good wishes Mick & Liz
We had a wonderful Christmas at Rose Cottage thank you so much.
Rose Cottage is in a beautiful position just across the road from the Church.
Woolpit is a beautiful village and we had a great time visiting family. Michael and Liz have created a beautiful cottage and we will be staying here in the future.
The Christmas tree was a real treat.
Thank you for your kind comments. It was a pleasure to meet you and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to you returning.
Mick & Liz
Beautiful cottage in a stunning village
The check in process was easy and the cottage was cosy and welcoming
This comfortable cottage is exactly as described by the owner. We couldn't fault it and would happily go back. Everthing worked perfectly and was simple to use and the beds were really comfortable.
Thank you for your kind comment Eleanor. You would be very welcome to stay at Rose Cottage again. We are so pleased you enjoyed it. Good wishes Mick & Liz
Way over expectation
The Rose Cottage is way more than we were expecting, fell in love when we walked in the door. Vey lovely, peaceful, relaxing cottage. Very nice patio, back yard, garden. ( In the U.S.. we would call it a patio/backyard, I believe in the UK it would be referred to as a garden) Everything we needed was there. Very clean. We did have some issues finding it to start with, but there was 2 gentlemen that came to our rescue and helped us out with no hesitation. They were so kind. Woolpit is very nice and safe feeling. Sure hope I get a chance to come back.
