Me and my 5 friends had a wonderful time at Carpenters Cottage - the cottage itself was perfect and provided everything we needed for a 3 night stay and NYE celebration. Sophia was extremely helpful throughout and helped to provide all the information we needed. Fire wood and coal was also provided which helped us keep the open fire going! Thanks so much Sophia and a happy new year from myself and 5 other very happy customers!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this quaint, peaceful and cosy cottage. The surrounding area is very quiet and offers some nice walks. Our christmas stay was made very special by the joys of cooking on the Aga and the comfort of the open fire place. Everything was to our satisfaction and we certainly recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a quiet break out of town.
This is the most delightful cottage in an exquisite setting and delightfully warm, despite bad weather. Sophia was prompt to communicate and helpful in every way. The cottage is well equipped, spacious and comfortable, but most important is its charm.
We had a great stay at the Carpenter's cottage, which is in a great location for Southwold, Walberswick and some great NT sites. The kitchen was well appointed with all the pots, pans and utensils we needed, the living room was comfortable with dvds, books and jigsaws to occupy and the whole place was comfy, clean and warm. Sophie was a pleasure to deal with during the booking and even came to the rescue (via her Mum) when we had a short powercut. The place really made the holiday and we'd have no hesitation in recommending to others.
The cottage has charm, in a peaceful rural location. The property
struck us as being rather unloved and with a little tlc could be very
The cottage is a beautiful quaint little house tucked away just off the A12 near Southwold, Suffolk. It is clean and comfortable and warm due to an AGA that took us only a day to get used to before we were having perfect pancakes for breakfast. It has a vast collection of DVDs and books in the living room to keep yourself occupied in the down time and the only thing I found a little off putting was the uneven flooring which made walking across the upstairs feel a little like we were drunk. All in (email hidden) to stay.
A lovely house in a great location. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here, It fits 2 families perfectly, and there was enough space for everyone. You have to be a dab hand with the Arga though, which we became by the middle of the week, to make a cooked breakfast.
Lovely, secluded cottage not too far from Walberswick and Southwold and the Maize Maze and all the other delights of Suffolk. The people on the farm were friendly and charming and welcoming to the three children in our party - let them collect eggs and pat the horses and told them about the Little Owls and how to recognise their call. The cottage is tastefully converted with interesting features. Slightly 'distressed' but we didn't mind the dips in the brick floor. Nice, friendly touches such as children's books and board games and a few videos. We all decided we would like to go there again
A very clean and comfortable old cottage set in beautiful woodland away from busy roads but with easy access to A12.
We loved the cottage, thank you. We found the location easily, when we arrived it was clean and tidy - towels laid out and beds made.
We had a great weekend and would thoroughly recommend Sophia's cottage. We will definitely come again. Thanks Sophia.
Sophia and her friend were fun guests. I missed them by a couple of days but my roommate really enjoyed meeting them and said they were very respectful and considerate guests.
Sophia and her friends were absolutely lovely. They took very good care of our flat, were really nice to deal with and over all just perfect guests. I'd definitely host them again and can recommend anyone doing the same.
