Really beautiful cottage in peaceful rural setting. Very well equipped and complete with complimentary pack of goodies! Johanna couldn't have been more welcoming and friendly. Thoroughly recommended.

“Excellent location, great place”
Reviewed 23 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Harness Cottage is in an excellent location for touring Suffolk. There are plenty of places to see in the local area. The owner who lives in the main farmhouse is extremely welcoming and thoughtful. The cottage which sleeps two people has been tastefully furnished and in good weather you can enjoy a glass of wine outside looking out for the deer and hares. Though this cottage only sleeps two people I believe that two of the other three cottages sleep up to four. We had a look round one and it was equally well furnished. Once you've been, you will want to return.

“Cosy home from home”
Reviewed 6 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

A lovely little cottage thoughtfully and lovingly presented, down a quiet country lane, central to many Suffolk attractions. Even arrived to find a cake, bread, milk, cheese and flowers, so thoughtful!!! We loved it. Thank you!!!

“Second stay at this cottage - just as good as the first”
Reviewed 28 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

This was our second stay in Harness Cottage. We really like it here.

It is beautifully furnished and to a high standard, making it comfortable and very relaxing.

The welcome goodies are a bonus and very tasty (milk, cheese, cake and bread) all from the local farm shop, not to mention the tea, coffee, sugar salt and pepper in the kitchen.

If you are looking for some peace and quiet and slow pace - stay here, you will not be disappointed
