“A great place to "get away from it all" yet easy to get to.”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

It's a lovely cottage in a beautiful location. We came for a cycling break and there are perfect little lanes straight from the door. Nice villages and scenery to enjoy on the way. Cottage is well enough equipped to cook there, but pubs are within bicycle distance or a short drive away. Hoping to go back for another long weekend soon.

“Lovely and secluded”
Reviewed 16 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Set in the middle of the Suffolk countryside, it's not too far away from civilisation but far enough away to make us feel secluded and at peace. Souters had everything we needed to make our stay perfect, the chiminea and patio in the outside area is lovely and private and it was a real treat to sit outside late into the evening. Souters is very near to Colchester which we visited in the beautiful sunshine, as well as to beaches on the Suffolk coast. Nick was extremely helpful with the booking, and it was very quick and easy.
We loved our few days here, it was a great getaway to relax and explore some of Suffolk and Essex. Loved it, definitely recommend.

“Beautifully secluded spot, absolutely perfect!”
Reviewed 3 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

My partner and our daughter (age 6) stayed at Souters for three nights in May 14. We often stay in the area as we have a relative who lives close by. This spot was by far the best so far! Souters is perfect for a couple or a small family (like us) and Nick is busy building a Shepherds Hut in the grounds which is looking fantastic and will surely allow a larger family to stay together. We had great fun exploring the woods and three beautiful evenings were spent in the evening sun listening to the birds sing as the chiminea warmed us. Absolutely perfect - can't recommend Souters enough.

“What a way to start to our married life, amazing!”
Reviewed 12 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

I don't think we could recommend souters anymore than we have, it is somewhere that anyone and everyone would instantly feel comfortable and relaxed.
Myself and my husband had spent hours and hours searching for somewhere to have a few days of solice after the madness of our wedding and we both feel so blessed that we stumbled across souters.
The location is perfect for a real getaway from it all, so beautiful and peaceful you really need to stay to appreciate just how amazing this place is.
Inside is everything you could want or need and with nick and cath only being a short walk away if you were in need of anything else they would be more than happy to help, the love and passion they put into making your stay special really does make it so much more wonderful and personal, with us being newly weds our home baked heart scones and sparkly really showed they go the extra mile.
We will definitely be returning, we miss the peacefulness and of course the log burner.
So to sum it up, souters is somewhere that you would be mad to overlook I promise you will be raving about it as much as we have been and will continue to do.
