Cosy cottage with modern amenities

  • 4 of 5

Lovely cottage, tastefully restored in a lovely village setting.

Close to pubs with food, take away, tea rooms, a well stocked little Co-op and a bakery, all within very easy reach.

We enjoyed a day in Aldeburgh and a day in Bury St Edmunds.

The weather was glorious and the back garden is a real sun trap so it was great to sit on the small patio and recover from our excursions.

Comfortable, clean and well equipped. The owner called to make sure everything was alright. Village attractive, small supermarket, bakers, fish and chips, excellent restaraunt and pub. Well situated for exploring Suffolk.

Lovely property in a beautiful little village.

  • 5 of 5

We have had a lovey week at Rose Cottage. The property is well laid out and looked after. It overlooks a beautiful church one way and some gorgeous old properties the other.

Woolpit is such a sweet little village. There is a cute gift shop just across the street and a fish and chip shop round the corner.

The owners are most helpful and pleasant to deal with.

We had some great days out from visiting Bury St. Edmunds only down the road to Horsey Beach (where we saw so many seals close up) and Southwold further away.

We highly recommend this property.

Comfortable cottage in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

The property is very comfortable, well-maintained and in a beautiful location. It's clear that Mick cares that his guests have an enjoyable stay: when we experienced a problem with the central heating, Mick responded promptly to our call, brought fuel for the log burner to ensure that we would be warm, and arranged for a heating engineer to sort out the problem, which was done within the hour. My wife and I agree that this is the best holiday cottage we have ever rented.

A beautiful cottage in a beautiful place.

  • 5 of 5

Myself, husband, our friend and our son stayed at Rose Cottage for 10 nights. We had the most wonderful and enjoyable time here. Everything we needed was supplied in the property and Woolpit was a lovely peaceful place. Overall, we couldn't have asked for better. The booking process was made so easy for us and Mick was more than accommodating with helping us out with any requests we had. He was always extremely prompt to reply to us. We will certainly return to Rose Cottage again if we are visiting the area in the future.

Fantastic cottage, great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely little cottage. Beautifully refurbished. All mod cons you need plus much needed wifi if you have kids! We loved sitting in the back patio garden area and Mick and Liz were fantastic hosts. Special thanks as well to John who was next door and gave us great travelling tips. Definitely would recommend this cottage- it is in a great little village and close to Bury St Edmunds and lots more besides. Check out the Swan woolpit for a lovely meal. We will definitely stay in this cottage again
