“Wonderful holiday home!!! ”
Reviewed 28 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Had a fantastic week here the house is amazing, beautiful large very safe enclosed garden perfect for our 2 labs that loved it!
House had everything you could possible need, very spacious for our family of 4 and 2 dogs.
Very clean and tidy house, owner is really friendly and the couple that work on the farm nearby were very nice helpful people.
Hot tub was a perfect touch which we used everyday!
Beds were very comfy and very good showers in every bedroom.
Games room opposite house was great fun most evenings for us too.

Also has badminton & croquet to play in the garden and a fishing lake at end of garden was brilliant, even caught a few fish!
Such a nice quiet peaceful area with lovely pubs and towns nearby.
The owners wine shop is an added extra too, lovely selection and very convenient.
Thank you so much for letting us stay and thank you for our welcome bottle of prosecco too.
Have stayed in many holiday homes but this was by far the best!
We shall miss the grain house now after spending such a nice week there.

“Our perfect holiday”
Reviewed 9 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Thank you for such an amazing holiday, the Grain House is absolutely stunning and is extremely well presented. The house has loads of space, excellent facilities and very comfortable beds. The games barn was an added bonus and is huge, we loved it in there. The garden is also large for outdoor fun and the hot tub is brilliant. Don't wonder about booking this, just book it, you won't be disappointed.

“Perfect Holiday Break”
Reviewed 1 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We have 2 dogs, 2 elderly people with limited abilities, 2 teenagers and 2 normal adults in our party and I can honestly say that The Grain House ticked all our boxes. The property had everything you could want. the owners had thought of everything. The location was fantastic and is a dog walkers paradise, and the hot tub was a lovely bonus at the end of the day. Having such a diverse mix of needs within our party The Grain House was the perfect holiday home and we would definitely re book.
We would also like to thank George, his family and staff for making our stay so effortless.

“Wonderful place”
Reviewed 23 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Amazing house!!! Such a great set up. A group of 7 friends stayed here and we could not find any faults! We were going to a wedding at The White Hart in Great Yeldham and it was the perfect location (10 minute taxi ride).

Owners are very friendly and gave us a discount in their wine shop next door...always handy for the hot tub!

Very clean. 4 spacious bedrooms and 3 bathrooms so plenty of space for everyone. Well equipped kitchen with dishwasher. There is even a whole barn just for games...this has table tennis, pool, table football, darts and lots of sofas for chilling - we made the mistake of only discovering it an hour before we were leaving!

Great communication from the owner - prompt return of our deposit.

Would highly recommend this place. Probably the best "cottage" we have ever stayed in. Great value for money. Hope to return one day!

“Fantastically Well Appointed Cottage”
Reviewed 6 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

We booked the Grain House as a group of eight to see in the New Year in style and this place did not disappoint us.
From the moment we arrived we were impressed with the design, layout, attention to detail and cleanliness. We were a group of 4 adults, two teenagers, two kids & two dogs and this place offered something to keep everyone happy. The owner, George, was lovely, very polite, gave us everything we needed and is on hand if you need him but did not disturb us otherwise. The two sitting areas worked well for kids/grown-ups and the games room was a real winner for the kids. The dogs loved the long walks and impressive gardens and the adults loved a (plastic) glass of bubbles in the hot tub once the kids had finally worn themselves out! We’ve re-booked for next year within 48hrs of returning home – loved it!

We were visiting Suffolk for a fmaily wedding and staying in such a lovely property, of a high standard added to the weekend's events. The little details were well thought out, even down to socket covers - we had a toddler with us!

“Great weekend escape”
Reviewed 24 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Had a great weekend away with 5 friends. The house was very welcoming arriving on a wet, dark Friday night after a busy week at work. Once the fire was lit, wine poured, dinner cooking we felt very at home!
The hot tub was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
We spent a lot of time in the house due to the weather being rubbish the space in the house was even more appreciated. We did venture out to Lavenham but the rain spoilt the beauty of the place but made the tea room even more inviting!
Hope to be back again very soon.
