This cottage is a wonderful example of the architecture of the period with bags of personality. The owners have kept and added a lot of features which tell the story of the place.
The garden has a courtyard and lawn area and is secure for dogs and kids.
The grounds of the main house, which guests are able to use, are very well kept. A beautiful setting with amazing sunrise and sunset views.
We felt truly welcome and it really is dog friendly - they welcome dogs as much as humans.
Gorgeous log fire.
We all loved it. I will be recommending to friends and to my relatives from the US who always want something a bit different.
We have just spent 3 days in The Old Post Office in Higham, and it is without a doubt one of the best holiday cottages I have ever stayed in. We had a lovely welcome from Claire, who showed us round the cottage and the grounds. It is the most beautiful building, and retains so much character, and has been furnished so well and really in keeping with the age of the property. There was a lovely welcome pack for breakfast (and even a couple of Easter Eggs for the kids). All the properties owned by Idyllic Suffolk looked fantastic, and to get to use the 25 acres of gardens and grounds was the icing on the cake.
This cottage is better than any 5 star hotel, and the service was outstanding. Put this place on your wish list, you could not fail to love it.

We stayed with two kids in this beautiful ancient building to visit different attrations in the London area. There is a good direct train connection to London from Manningtree. One will notice the influence of time on the looks and feels of this house like the floors, sanitation and windows yet all you need is available including wifi and dish washer. We enjoyed the hospitality of the estate manager and surely hope to return one day.
