Reviewed 21 August 2014

Could it be quite as good as trip advisor reviews had promised? Well yes definitely.Like others before us we received a warm welcome and were impressed by the high specification decor, comfort and situation of the cabin.
It is such an imaginative venture and we were delighted with all aspects of it.
Do go if you want to relax in a luxurious and tranquil setting --and the cake and croissants were delicious!

Thank you so much for your kind review. I do apologise it has taken me so long to respond, we have just been flat awaiting a quiet time...but it has yet to arrive, plus we have been doing some painting and maintenance to keep the site looking great.

I am so pleased we managed to live up to the expectations set and that you found everything as you wanted plus managed to relax. I promise nothing is planned to change so if you return hopefully you will experience exactly them same quality, relaxing escape.

Thanks again for choosing to stay with us and for your feedback and apologise for the delay in coming back to you.

All the best

Andrew and the whole team.

All the family booked the 4 lodges for the weekend of my daughters wedding last week, it is a truly outstanding place. The cabins are like a 5 star boutique hotel, with addition of an excellent kitchen. There are TV's and music systems in all the rooms, large showers and huge bathtubs, everything is of an excellent quality. We had home made cake and croissants, tea, coffee, bread jam etc provided. Relaxing in the hot tub by the lake at night was wonderful, all the family had a good time. Highly recommended for a relaxing peaceful stay with that touch of luxury.

We are so pleased to have had you all to stay and we will never forget the shire horses trotting off with Freya beaming and looking stunning. We actually have a family in this week who have taken over most of the site for a family wedding, much like you did, and I was telling them all about the amazing horse carriage.

After a 4 night break at the Suffolk escape we returned home very relaxed. It is certainly the place to go and unwind. Everything about the log cabin is 1st class, a luxury lodge right on the edge of the water. We sat in the hot tub & watched the sunset one evening & the stars on another. Made very welcome with local provisions on arrival.

We are pleased you managed to unwind, it is one of the key objectives of the Suffolk Escape, to create somewhere to make it so very easy to relax and unwind from the stresses of daily life.

I delighted you managed to get to watch the sunset and stars from the soothing hot tub.

Thank you again for choosing to escape with us,

We have just returned from a week away at the Suffolk Escape following our wedding and we had a fantastic time!

On arrival we got a homemade cake as well as croissants and Andrew gave us some great advice on the surrounding area.

The set-up of the log cabin was first class. There are massive 2x2m beds, a lovely hot tub, a huge bath and a well equipped kitchen. Every aspect was outstanding.

Our cabin was right by a lake and we had a large family of ducklings visiting us every morning.

The Suffolk escape is a perfect place to relax and unwind in a luxurious environment.

We would definitely recommend to anyone and we will certainly be back!

What a break! Absolutely beautiful location, beautiful cabin, unbelievable peace and quiet. You will lose track of the amount of times you will say 'they really have thought of everything'.

Andrew was welcoming from the second we got there. Nothing was too much trouble. His local knowledge gave us many ideas for things to do.

I would recommend this stay to everyone, it was an unbelievable experience and I am counting down the days until I can return

We have just returned from 4 glorious days in Lavenham cabin. Everything was perfect including the weather. It was so relaxing that for two days we were quite happy to stay in situ, watching the wildlife, reading on the decking and enjoying the hot tub. Many thanks to Andrew and Sarah, for a delicious sponge and pastries. We certainly hope to be back.
