I booked this house for myself and 12 friends to celebrate my Hen party.
We had an amazing time. The house is beautiful and had everything we needed. Rooms where all spacious and the kitchen facilities perfect.
We had a chef come in and cook for us on Saturday evening who also stayed and made breakfast for the Sunday.
We walked to the local pub and shops but apart from that we just hung around the house and it was brilliant.
The house is fairly old and does have some trip hazards and low celling's to look out for but it did not effect us too much.
Clair at Big House events was very helpful and a pleasure to do business with.
We loved staying at Elms. We went on a work trip and it was the perfect property - cosy but without feeling on top of each other. We walked to Southwold and then got the bus back which was incredibly easy. Fab kitchen which was well equipped.
Had a great weekend break. The property was clean, spacious and comfortable. Situated in a quiet area with a very large back garden. We had some great country walks. The house had great character . Good value for money. thank you Claire for arranging it rather late for us.
Excellent location for visiting the sea ,garden for games and pool and games room for more recreation. Dog friendly. House very good for a large group well equipped kitchen but limited surfaces for catering for 18. Mixed age group family all had a great time.
I managed to get a group of friends an family to join me again at this lovely old Farmhouse. As soon as I walked through the door I felt at home again, I couldn't wait to get into the kitchen to prepare a lovely meal to serve in the large formal dining room. We lit a log fire and enjoyed the cosy feel of this very large house. We used the swimming pool, (nice and warm), and the games room, good fun all round. I love the fact the house is a mixture of low old beams and high Georgian ceiling's , something to suit everyone with a modern feel to it. Plenty of seating in all areas, including the garden, we were lucky with the weather, but in a house of this size it doesn't matter, there is room for all. One of my favourite places.
Had a wonderful time at Elms Farmhouse. A large group of us stayed and there was plenty of room for everyone. It has a lovely feel about the place and is really homely. The dining room is great with enough space to seat more than 18 people and we enjoyed a special birthday celebration dinner. There's also plenty of room in the living room and it was so nice to all be able to sit in there together too. The garden is huge and our two dogs loved running around it. The angel inn is only a five minute walk away and the food there was delicious. We also went on a nature walk nearby the farmhouse which was really pleasant. Being just a short drive from Southwold, staying here is convenient if you have a car and want to venture out a bit too. All in all we had a lovely time, it was the perfect location for a 60th birthday get together and we'd definitely visit again.
I stayed in this lovely old "Farmhouse" in the summer with my family and some friends, ages ranged from 6 up to 80, there was so much to do in the local area, we loved the Quay in Southwold, and the quaint high street with it's varied array of shops, the pier is a great attraction. The House was very large and accommodating for us all, furnished very nicely with lovely bed linen. The kitchen was great with two dishwashers and two of everything so no shortages when dishing up the lovely meals we made while there, As a caterer I was very impressed with all the gadgets making life easy as at home. the formal dining table is amazing large enough for us all to sit round and wide enough to use all the lovely serving dishes etc. the swimming pool was lovely suited swimmers and non swimmers, I didn't mind the walk across the garden as it was so nice and we had good weather. We all enjoyed the games room with the pool and darts and other games, also lots of books and games available. We are already looking to next year to have a weekend reunion as we all got on so well, great fun all round. Well done Clair and Scott, special mention to Clair for her help in shopping tips.
