Our 4th visit was as wonderful as ever. Walnut tree farm is only a few miles from Southwold yet so peaceful, the perfect place to relax and unwind. We stay in the suite called Nellie which is well appointed and comfortable with an enormous bed and luxury bedding. David and Viv are great hosts so welcoming and attentive yet do...

We stayed for two nights as a family, renting both rooms and couldn't agree on who had the better room - both being very comfortable and spacious. David went out of his way to make us feel welcome, even spending time showing our two teenage sons his bee hives and giving them a mini lesson in bee keeping. The breakfast...

From the wonderfully spacious room & comfortable bed to the delicious breakfasts & welcoming spirit it's hard to fault the cowshed B&B. David & Viv have created an oasis of calm relaxation in a beautiful corner of England. And far more importantly than the opinion of the adults, our kids (9&2yrs) loved it too! What a genuine treat.

This place is truly amazing. From the moment you arrive to departing everything is just so. David the host met us and explained the rooms and gave us local information needed for our walking with friends. Both rooms excellently furnished, equipped and spotless. Breakfast was delicious and between us over the weekend we tried the entire menu and couldn't fault...

Our second stay in the Cowshed was just as wonderful as the first, having just spent two nights over the weekend to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Both rooms are beautiful, this time we stayed in Nellie but previously we stayed in Hilda. The rooms are beautifully decorate, well equipped and scrupulously clean; the bed is also very comfortable. Of the...

We stayed for just one night in the Hilda room, just wish we could have stayed longer. Cowshed holidays is a total chilled out retreat, I don't think I've slept so well for ages - such a comfy bed. We dropped the car off around 3pm, with the intention of using our bikes to cycle to Southwold. David and Viv...

Let me start by saying we were looking for somewhere in Southwold & stumbled across Cowshed holidays. On the journey up I was a little anxious as I hadn't really checked but we would be 7 miles from Southwold & I felt that may be a problem. However, we arrived to a very nice welcome on a farm in the...

we rented both properties "Nellie and Hilda" for a two night family break to visit this part of Suffolk. The accommodation was just perfect, very clean and comfortable, with everything you could possibly need for that quiet break. David, the owner, was very friendly and provided us with a very well cooked and enjoyable comprehensive breakfast menu. We hope to...

We stayed just for one night on a last minute break. Luckily we picked Cowshed Holidays from seeing the reviews on tripadvisor. Our room was large and clean and warm. Huge comfy bed.
