“Wonderfully cosy and well equipped rural retreat.”
Reviewed 15 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

The weather over the Easter Bank holidays was bitter, but we had a warm welcome from our hosts and a cosy cottage to return to after a day exploring the region. The homemade scones and jam were delicious start to our 3 night stay.
Souters proved to be an ideal base for our visits to the National Trust properties in the area. We made memorable tours of Ickworth, John Constable's Flatford Mill, the Anglo-Saxon burial ground of Sutton Hoo, historic village of Lavenham, Melford Hall and the Wimpole Estate.
The cottage was peacefully located, well equipped, with wonderful underfloor heating and wood-burning stove- with full instructions for the novice!!

“beautiful cottage in a very peaceful location.”
Reviewed 4 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

A massive thank you to Nick and Cath for a very welcoming and lovely stay. The cottage was beautiful and extremely comfortable. It was lovely and clean and a lovely touch that we were provided with the basics of tea, coffee, milk etc. Cath even made the effort by making cakes for our arrival. beautiful surroundings in a very quaint location. My dog loved it to. perfect if you want to get away for a romantic retreat. I can't wait to return with my boyfriend :-)

“A Cosy Winter Hideaway - Looking Forward to Returning in Summer”
Reviewed 24 February 2013 for a stay in February 2013

A warm, friendly welcome (Cath had baked a delicious Lemon Drizzle Cake and makes the most incredible green tomato chutney) to a beautiful part of East Anglia. Souters is, just enough, off the beaten track and is the perfect base from which to explore the dramatic surrounding countryside.

The cottage has everything - from basic provisions to wi-fi, from underfloor heating to a cosy wood burning stove.

We came for a short weekend - we'll be back for a longer stay in the summer.
