We really loved this house; it's very central in Woodbridge so everything in the town is walkable, but it was also very quiet and peaceful. The house had the feel of a much loved holiday home for a family, full of great books, and lovely objects, rugs etc. The bedrooms were particularly lovely. We would happily go there again. - 2nd March 2019

We've done some great walks, and really enjoyed being right in the middle of Woodbridge.Anne-Marie, Andrew, Madelieine & Izzy McBroom - 22nd February 2019

We had a restful week in this lovely cottage which we found clean, comfortable and well equipped. We visited Woodbirdge as it was the Maritime Festival, Southwold & Aldeburgh, Snape Maltings, we cycled to Waldringfield. The Maybush Pub on the river is lovely.
