“Beautiful character cottage”
Reviewed 24 April 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.

“Lovely cosy & characterful cottage”
Reviewed 17 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

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 13 October 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!

“Delightful cottage in lovely village”
Reviewed 12 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Once again a wonderful holiday in Peasenhall Suffolk. White sheep cottage is immaculately presented and had everything we needed, and more, to enable us to enjoy our weeks holiday and to leave feeling refreshed and relaxed. The garden was an absolute delight and we enjoyed some lovely early Autumn walks around the area.
The cottage is very well equipped, cooking in the kitchen a pleasure with everything you could need provided. The sofas/ beds are most comfortable.
Will definitely return.

“Excellent short break”

We chose White Sheep Cottage for a weekend away from it all. We found it beautifully presented, comfortable, and ideally situated in the heart of Suffolk. We loved the garden, went for long walks, and returned to chill out on comfy sofas; and slept so well in the beautifully appointed bedrooms. So much nicer than staying in a hotel.
