"Great property in a beautiful location with lots to see and do."
"Lovely cottage in a beautiful setting. Whilst here we spotted buzzards, rabbits, deer and hares. We enjoyed visits to the coast and exploring the surrounding villages and castles. Thank you for being great hosts. P.S loved the garden!"
"Lucky people, we saw the otter and kingfisher several times. Beautiful place, very relaxing, great hosts. Thank you"
"Our first ever time in Suffolk, but not our last! Lovely, quiet accommodation, very peaceful surroundings. Garden is fantastically maintained, a real credit to the owner. Overall a thoroughly enjoyable holiday, thanks."
"A lovely cottage in a stunning location. David and Ruth (and Molly) are wonderful hosts offering lots of helpful information. We have had a lovely week relaxing and exploring the local area. The gardens are beautiful and it is very peaceful."
"Akenfield Cottage was just what we were looking for."
"Akenfield Cottage was lovely, as were the gardens and the owners were very friendly too."
"It is a comfortable cottage in a lovely location. The cottages you offer seem of a high standard."
"It was perfect. Wonderful location, done out to such a high standard, comfortable, clean, peaceful, and I just want to turn round and go straight back!"
"The cottage was very well presented and equipped."
"We had a fantastic weekend to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary at Akenfield Cottage. So quiet and peaceful and we have been so lucky with the weather. The Cottage and gardens are so idyllic and tranquil, everything you could want for a relaxing break, with so much to see and do nearby. Thank you Ruth & David for a memorable stay and for being the perfect hosts."
"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."
"Idyllic Cottage in fantastic surroundings"
"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"
"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. "
"From finding the cottage on the website, to booking, paying deposit etc everything went incredibly smoothly. Updates via email came through on time and we were able to contact the cottage owner to ask a question too! Had a lovely time in a lovely cottage which lived up to expectations - bed and pillows wonderfully comfy too!"
"Our 2nd time staying at Akenfield cottage, still as lovely and peaceful as ever!"
"Very comfortable cottage with a lovely garden and helpful friendly owners next door. Thoroughly recommended."
"We have booked for the next year 2019 so think that will say it all , thank you for a lovely holiday"
" 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"
"Lovely cottage and surroundings in such a peaceful spot. Overjoyed at seeing Hares in the adjacent field. Thank you for being so welcoming."
"Booked for September 2019 already, I think this says it all. Do try Fridays farm shop just off the A12 on the road to Aldeburgh, very good. Also recommend the Fish n Chips in Aldeburgh. Many thanks for a lovely holiday."
"Nothing much changes here, we holidayed here same week last year. Still brilliant, still peaceful, still everything we loved the last time. Had a great week, weather was amazing,. Loved the tomatoes!"
"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. "
"Another comfortable stay in Akenfield Cottage. Letheringham is such a beautiful area of Suffolk, we just love it here. Thank you David & Ruth"
"Very relaxing, Lovely gardens, so peaceful. White Horse 20mins walk away served lovely fish. Thanks you both, perfect place."
"Thank you both very much , we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your lovely cottage on our first visit to Suffolk."
"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. "
"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."
"Fantastic property, location and owners "
"Thank you for a lovely week in your beautiful cottage. Lots of long walks in the wonderful Suffolk Countryside."
"What Tranquil find, we have both been extremely relaxed. Your garden is wonderful. The cottage has everything ones needs all the home comforts! The Suffolk Countryside seems to go on and on, loved the Villages and Towns, not the roads! Archie loved the garden."
"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!"
"We really did strike it lucky in finding this gorgeous holiday home in a search. Although weather could have been a bit better we had a lovely week with the cherry on the top seeing the Kingfisher. Thank you Ruth & David."
"Lovely cottage, beautiful gardens, great weather equals fab holiday. Thanks, see you again."
"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 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."
"Thank you for making us so welcome. The cottage is absolutely lovely. We have been very comfy. This is ur first visit to the area and we a great time. The cottage is perfectly positioned to go out for days without travelling far. As for your lovely garden we are going home inspired."
"What a great find Akenfield Cottage has proved to be. A spotlessly clean, light and airy cottage with lots of space and a beautiful garden. Thank you for your friendly hos[pitality, we've had a lovely week. Keith and Elaine. T "
