Could not fault our stay with Lisa and Stephen! Their house and gardens are amazing and the hosts ( inc the dogs) made the 6 of us who stayed for a nearby wedding feel right at home- just wish my home was like this!!
Lisa didn't mind us arriving early on the Saturday for our one nights stay for a friends wedding at Haughley park barn (about 5 min drive away). Stephen kindly drove us to the church in elmsett and also took one of our party back in the morning to collect the car!
Lisa is extremely thoughtful and has everything covered, from the tea and biscuits when we arrived to the well needed breakfast the morning after the wedding! She even called ahead and booked a table at the local pub for Sunday lunch.
There is also a tennis court in the garden which Stephen let us borrow some bats and balls to play! Brilliant fun!
In terms of the fundamentals you need to know, you have the use of the drawing and dining room as well as your own room in the house and our hosts were more than happy for us to walk round the gardens.
Beds are very comfy, one room with en suite and the others have their own bathrooms which are just across the halls.
Definitely will return to stay with Lisa and Stephen- they couldn't have been more accommodating!
