“Calm, refreshing retreat - Loved it!”
Reviewed May 15, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We were having a weekend away in the midst of a busy season before our first baby is born and wanted somewhere calm, peaceful, but with plenty to do if we wanted. The Grain Store is just that. Within very easy reach of Southwold and other traditional market or seaside towns and in a beautiful part of the country. The accommodation itself is very tastefully decorated and well done out with everything you need for a comfortable stay. We had a great lunch at the Crown Inn in Southwold and a really good dinner at the Angel Inn in Wangford (would recommend both), but the Grain Store also has everything you need to eat well at 'home.' Mark and Sarah obviously love making people feel welcome and there were little touches that made a lot of difference, like fresh flowers on the table, milk in the fridge, and some goodies like wine and biscuits. Logistically it was all incredibly easy literally parking outside the place having been given a code for the safe with the key inside. Mark very promptly and helpfully responds to emails. All in all a really good place that we would consider coming back to again when our baby is born since they have everything necessary for this to be very child friendly. Loved it!

“comfort and quiet in rural suffolk”
Reviewed November 1, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

This cottage was just what we needed. The accommodation is actually the first floor of a converted barn. Clean and tidy and comfortable too. Overlooking sugarbeet fields, this is a peaceful spot with very easy access to the coastal town of southwold.

“Excellent - we would go again”
Reviewed September 23, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Very attractive and spotlessly clean accommodation, ideal for a couple plus or minus one child. Well situated for Southwold and other attractions such as Minsmere.

“Ideally situated country location for exploring area comfortable accommodation”
Reviewed September 10, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Lovely welcome with milk and wine in the fridge, biscuits for that first cup of tea! Very clean and well furnished with everything you would need in the kitchen. Tucked away in country lane yet only ten minutes from Southwold and Angel Inn pub with good food in Wangford.

“Beautiful place to stay”
Reviewed August 29, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

A fantastic base from which to explore a beautiful part of the country. This holiday rental property was spacious and has all the facilities that you would require for a short stay. We really enjoyed our stay here, our 19 month old daughter particularly enjoyed exploring the large garden meeting the chickens and other wildlife. The owners were both friendly and welcoming, they provided our daughter with a travel cot and toys. I would recommend the Grain Store unreservedly.
