“Owls Nest was exactly what we were looking for.”
Reviewed 5 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We really enjoyed our stay at Owls Nest, which was very comfortable and well-equipped. It was in a lovely location that was convenient for the places we wanted to visit, including Sutton Hoo and RSPB Minsmere. The owners Clare and Chris were very welcoming and we were delighted to find that they had wild orchids growing in their meadow.

“Good location, no phone signal”
Reviewed 2 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This was prefect height for me at 5foot 3, but unfornately my boyfriend is 5 11, and several features caused him some problems. The shower over the bath meant that he couldn't use it. The slopping ceilings made it difficult to stand. Small tv which was some distance from the sofa, so we had to sit at the breakfast bar. The location was ideal for us as we attended a wedding at Bruisyard barn, it's a beautiful setting and very peaceful. If you want phone signal don't stop here, however, there is free wifi. Overall good location just to short in height.

Management Response

I am not sure which network this customer used but we have never had the comment of 'no signal' before. We use Vodafone which has an excellent signal and I also know that O2 and Orange do have some signal especially from the elevated position of Owls Nest but I can not comment on all networks. With regards to the slopping roof, the main living area does have a high ceiling but maybe the ground floor accommodation 'Paddock Barn' would have been more suitable in this case as it has a large walk in shower and regular ceilings throughout.
