Reviewed 26 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Perfectly situated for exploring Suffolk and nearby areas. There is everything you need in the Gig House and Ian and Janine are always available if you require anything. There are many attractions to visit close by and the coastal towns of Southwold & Aldeburgh are well worth a visit. Needham Lake is a lovely spot which is beautifully kept, free parking and areas for children, the public toilets were very clean and they have hot water!
Worth a special mention is the vegetarian restaurant The Walnut Tree just up the road on the A140. Food and service was excellent but you do need to book.
Neither Ian or Janine were going to be there when we arrived but Ian took the trouble to contact us several days beforehand to make arrangements about handing over the keys. Also if you are staying in the summertime the garden is an added bonus.

What can l say ,we arrived friday late afternoon ,we were welcomed by Ian who had the house lovely and warm ,with a wood burning fire ,which we didn't have to relight during our stay of 3 nights,it was lovely and clean,felt really homely,everything you needed ,a lovely little garden ,with a lot of bird activity which was lovely,to be honest if you didn't want to venture out you could curl up with a book or dvds it felt that cosy,would like to stay in the summer as it would be lovely to open the french doors and enjoy the garden ,it was peaceful it was a shame to leave ,They truly have got it spot on,wish other places we stayed at were that good,clean,helpful, homely and friendly would highly recommend. it is great for couples.

“A real gem ...”
Reviewed 12 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We have just returned from a week's stay at the Gig house. Full of character, extremely comfortable and clean as well as being very well equipped, this cottage offers an excellent base for exploring Suffolk. The owners Ian and Janine are really kind, helpful yet unobtrusive as well as being informative about the attractions of the area. We really enjoyed our stay at this 'real gem' and would have no hesitation in recommending it to friends and family. We look forward to returning in the future.

“Excellent cottage - wonderful people”
Reviewed 4 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

An excellent 2-person "get away from it all" cottage. Tucked away at the rear of the owner's extensive farmhouse, The Gig House offers all anyone could want from a smaller style of property - which is actually a lot larger than it first appears. Because the cottage is so well shielded and set back, one could easily feel miles out in countryside - aided by a very secluded and well-kept garden.

The cottage offered everything we we needed and more besides - a well equipped kitchen, a good sized and comfortable bed, a comfortable lounge - and - best of all - everything worked - first time. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful. Ian contacted us almost as soon as we had booked with all the details on key pickup etc., and invited us to park right outside of the cottage. The property even has a turning area to avoid having to reverse out onto the road.

The Gig House has been sympathetically converted from its original use and retains some of the original brick flooring, complemented by carpeting in the lounge and bedroom. If the weather is kind - as it was for us - there is a large set of french doors that can be opened onto the garden.

Although there are limited shopping facilities in the village itself, there is an extensive range of shops associated with a park just outside the village around 20 minutes walk from the cottage.

In short, The Gig House is an ideal property for exploring the Suffolk, which offers a lot in terms of history and arts and we would have no hesitation in giving our highest recommendation to this cottage.

“Perfect Location, Perfect cottage”
Reviewed 23 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Stayed here with a view to exploring many of East Anglia's places of interest. We found the cottage to be ideally located for all the places we visited - most being within a 30 mile radius. The cottage was very comfortable and well equipped and the owners were very friendly and helpful. We would most definitely stay again if visiting the very beautiful county of Suffolk.
