    Property description
    Bury St Edmunds
    Holiday Rental House – 
    2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
    This grade 2 listed barn has been sympathetically renovated to a high standard and has been awarded a 4 star rating with a gold award from visit England. It is situated in a large enclosed and landscaped courtyard garden which has access to a well equipped games room, surrounded by Suffolk Wildlife Trust's Lackford Lakes Nature reserve which is a birdwatchers paradise. Wildlife is all around, many migratory birds come to Lackford Lakes and from here you can enjoy the sound of owls, nightingales, turtle doves, Canada geese and deer. Here you can really get away from it all yet the beautiful historic town of Bury St Edmunds is only 5 miles away and the racing town of Newmarket is 12 miles away. Ely, Cambridge, Norwich, the suffolk coast and Norfolk coasts are all easily within reach.

We arrived in the dark and could not see the code pad to open the gates, eventually we managed to punch in the code but only one side of the double gates opened which made the drive in with the car extremely narrow almost clipped my wing mirrors.The setting is secluded/quiet and didn't disappoint although,the lack of outside lighting left... more

Management response:

I'm glad that you enjoyed the setting and agree that it's disappointing that the gates and outside lights weren't working when you arrived. We will attend to our repairs and maintenance and I will investigate the matters you raised re the cleaning as this is at odds with the high standards that we expect and usually achieve. Happy new year... more

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Curlew Cottage, it is very warm and spacious, the beds are very comfortable and the shower is amazing. All the family enjoyed the well equipped games room, it became a nightly ritual to go across after tea for a game of pool and table tennis. The setting was perfect, rural but not too far... more
