“Fabulous!”
Reviewed March 5, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

I stayed here in February this year and it was just fabulous. The cottage is beautifully finished to a high specification and has a lovely, cosy, warm feeling to it. The beds are extremely comfortable, I felt so refreshed after just one night! The surrounding village is very tranquil with exceptional pubs nearby. I couldn't recommend it highly enough, even for just a short getaway.

“EXPECTATIONS MATCHED”
Reviewed December 30, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

If you are looking for a tranquil and comfortable Suffolk country cottage with period detail at the end of a quiet village with a great "living" kitchen and an attractive pub twenty minutes walk away, look no further.
The village has two shops of outstanding quality, the butchers and the the ham smokers (Emmetts Deli with great cafe and coffee), both nationally known, and the cottage is well placed for visiting nearby inland coastal villages and towns with walking possibilities in abundance. I don’t do TripAdvisor entries, so it is a credit to the house, that I write this.

“We love sheep”
Reviewed October 13, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Several visits in the bag and here we are again at the gorgeous White sheep cottage!
The cottage is an absolute delight and we left feeling refreshed and relaxed after a couple of wonderful nights sleep in the most comfortable bed.
Since our last visits there is lovely new furniture and soft furnishings in the sitting room and lots of cute new stuff in the kitchen which may I add is extremely well equipped.
The cottage is kept immaculately clean.
We were lucky to enjoy some lovely Autumn sunshine and the gardens were an absolute pleasure to explore.
We will be back, we love Sheep :-)

“Just perfect . . .”
Reviewed May 5, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We enjoyed a wonderful stay at White Sheep Cottage during the period of our son's wedding. As other reviewers have noted, the cottage is bright, spotlessly clean, very comfortable and extremely well equipped, with many extras that are rarely found in a self-catering property. Free wi-fi and a great supply of maps, local guides, magazines and reading books were a bonus! The garden is just beautiful (late spring flowers and blossom were in full bloom), with deck chairs, table and chairs ready for the use of visitors. We booked the adjoining Black Sheep Cottage at the same time as White Sheep - the perfect combination of accommodation for our wedding party. Above all I would recommend the cottage to anyone solely on the basis of the efficient and supportive owner! Booking and communication were seamless and any queries were answered within hours. Thank you so much for letting us share your delightful property.

“Beautiful character cottage”
Reviewed April 24, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Perfect cottage for our Suffolk short break. Beautifully restored and full of character, the cottage is very comfortable, cosy and well equipped. Everything you need to relax in style inside or out in the lovely garden. And the beds are super comfy. Kids loved the little twin room.
Perfectly situated for day trips to Southwold and Aldeburgh and any animal lover would enjoy Africa Alive, easily reached within 20/30 minutes.
Hopefully we will return.

This was a great place for our winter long weekend. Lovely cosy cottage, comfy beds and a great place to relax after a days walking. Good access and so many great places to explore in Suffolk.

“The whole cottage is beautiful, clean, warm and cozy..”
Reviewed October 12, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We stayed at White Sheep cottage at the end of September having never visited this part of the county before, it turned out that Suffolk is a joy and so is the cottage, it was pretty amazing, it has a inglenook fireplace in the Kitchen (wow) alongside the tudor heritage which extends upstairs. The whole cottage is beautiful, clean, warm and cozy..

We are keen walkers and managed to wander around many local paths, I have never found such a crop of blackberries!
