Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

The best place to stay in Suffolk
If you're looking for somewhere to stay in Suffolk then this beautiful thatched cottage is definitely the place to go. It is immaculately clean, the most comfortable bed and perfect location. Tracy is the best host providing homemade bread and jam, as well as a hamper and bubbles. With her knowledge of the local area and helpful tips of where to go, you could not wish for a more relaxed or better place to stay. This is our home from home and always have a warm welcome. Thank you Tracy, we will be back.

A wonderful place to say and a great location
I spent Christmas with my family at the cottage, it was strictly fabulous ! Tracy's wonderful house was made more special by her kind thought to provide a beautiful tree, Christmas lights a and a very useful hamper of essentials. The cottage is full of character whilst being extremely comfortable with all mod cons. And its in a great location.

Set in a Quiet Peaceful Village
Set in a quiet peaceful village with beautiful garden and a variety of sitting out areas yet only 5 miles out of historic Bury. Good on drive parking. When entering the cottage it was clear how well kept the cottage is and how clean clearly keeping to COVID guidelines. There was a welcome basket in the kitchen and various information sent before arrival. The map of West Stow Country Park very helpful. It is also well worth visiting Fuller Mill garden. The latter 2 are quite near the cottage. Please be aware that there is a steep step in the bathroom before getting to bath and toilet and a steep step into the lounge. There is a large twin room upstairs, double is on ground floor. However, you need to be quite agile to use the stairs.

Lovely Cottage
Two of us and a toddler stayed at this lovely Cottage, just ten minutes drive from Bury St Edmunds. It was lovely and clean, with a large master bedroom and sitting room, plus farmhouse style kitchen diner. Up some narrow spiral stairs is an additional cost twin bedroom. Nice and quiet, and the hosts were very helpful with ideas for local things to do with out daughter. Check-in was very simple and the cottage is easy to find. Would happily stay again.

Charming Cottage
Very clean comfortable cottage in great location for visiting Suffolk and Norfolk. Very nice welcome basket on arrival and the cottage has all the facilities required. The owners live next door so easy to get hold of if required, not that we needed to. Good internet but absolutely no mobile signal if your with O2. We had a very good week in the cottage and would return if in the area again

Charming cottage
Wonderful cottage & host. The cottage is spotlessly clean and well furnished with lots of touches to make you feel at home. We stayed with our 5 year old and 2 year old and it was perfect. Great location only a 10 minute drive to Bury, St Edmunds - the grounds of the Cathedral are perfect for families. Also easy and a pleasant drive to the coast. We hope to return,

Idyllic stay:)
Absolutely beautiful house in a beautiful area, loads of space within kitchen, hall and sitting room. Tracy clearly has an eye for character and customer service and both her and her husband were available and willing to help us when needed as they were very nearby. Very easy to get to Bury St. Edmunds and new developments.

Perfect for relaxing in Suffolk
The property is pretty on the outside and in, we were plenty warm enough with the central heating plus wood burner, the bed was comfortable and everything was there that we needed. Out in the sticks but only a 10 minute drive to a big 24hr Tesco on the edge of Bury St Edmunds. Lots of lovely places to visit nearby (Saxon village, nature reserve etc).
