Gardener's Cottage was the perfect place for a relaxing weekend with friends. The Cottage is gorgeous and full of character. Beds, linens and facilities were excellent. The private garden is a particular plus, not only well maintained but with plenty of outdoor furniture. The owner was extremely helpful and generous. It was a place that we all would love to return to so full marks to all concerned: a very lovely spot and close to all amenities. We cannot wait to return!

The massive English garden plus the surrounding rolling hills are beautiful. This is a special place that does not disappoint. The cottage is sizeable and comfortable. The owners are friendly and at your service. What a pleasant positive surprise!

An excellent holiday accommodation overall, made even better by the grounds and private garden access associated with the rental. The owners were very welcoming and attentive to our needs. The locality of Hadleigh town and associated heritage walks and shopping facilities were another bonus. We were delighted by our stay and would not hesitate to re-book or recommend.

A wonderful private, little cottage. Had superb grounds and surrounding areas to explore. Both the dog, our grandparents and our one year old son thoroughly enjoyed their stay - there is something for everyone. The owner was friendly and incredibly helpful, the cottage was equipped with everything we needed and we had a superb stay.

The Cottage is a great location - easy to find, peaceful and out of the way. The gardens are very well kept and the cottage is very well equipped with crockery etc. and lots of storage. The beds were very comfortable with fresh clean linen.

We found the owners to be very, very pleasant people. The cottage was so comfortable in tranquil surroundings with lots of walks available locally. Good range of shops in Hadleigh (Adnams shop recommended). The week spent at the cottage was so relaxing. We felt it would genuinely be hard to improve on the experience.

A well-appointed cottage in quiet surroundings yet within a 20 minute walk of a pub serving excellent food. Particularly appreciated being able to sit in a spacious secluded garden. The best cottage we have ever had.

The property was in a lovely condition. The gardens around it were nice, and the freedom of being in the countryside away from noise made for a really relaxing holiday.

We had a fabulous week staying in the Gardener's Cottage. Beautiful surroundings, wonderful walks, and a lovely picturesque village close by - amazing butchers and farm shop too! The owner, was great at recommending attractions and pubs in the vicinity - nothing was too much trouble.

We arrived 23rd December with my wife, 3 kids (16,14 & 10) and an energetic spaniel for a 7 night break over the Christmas holiday. The setting t is fantastic, with great countryside walks for the dog and a 10-15 minute stroll through the grounds into Hadleigh itself. We live within earshot of the M25, so it took a little while for the kids to adapt to the darkness and quiet. The cottage itself has real character was very clean and is furnished appropriately for a family. Although it didn't matter to us as ball gowns and suits were not required, the only potential downside for some would be the limited hanging space for clothes, but there is ample drawer space. Downstairs was very cosy in the evenings, the wood burner being a welcome addition on the nights it reached -6C outside. Upstairs was a little cooler but still very comfortable and the kids had to use the extra provided blankets to keep warm on the colder nights. Overall there was plenty of space so it did not feel we were on top of each other. Would we go back, well we might just have to so that we can can compare the brisk winter walks with summer strolls to the excellent pubs in the village

Had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay. Lovely quiet hide away. Cottage had everything we needed. Weather was good throughout to either; lounge in the back garden, walk around the grounds with the dog, including plenty of footpaths for walks, exactly what we was looking for. The village itself is quaint with a Morrison's just a minute away from the High Street if needed. Was greeted by the owner a little while after we arrived which was a very nice and welcomed gesture. All in all had a very good week and would make this a regular holiday.

We booked a dog friendly property for Christmas suitable for two adults, three children and a spaniel. We knew nothing about the cottage or Hadleigh village apart from what we had found on the internet. It turned out to be a delightful experience. The cottage is a conversion at the end of a stable block, it is in the grounds of a large house but quite a way from the main house itself. It meant that the dog could be allowed to run free away from roads. The cottage is well equipped, we managed to cook Christmas dinner for five but ran out of serving dishes and ended up improvising with dessert bowls - fine until we came to Christmas pudding and found we had leftover veg still in the dishes. Pudding and cream was served in tea cups to the hilarity of the children. The cottage is decorated in a mismatched country house style. The bed linen was white and pristine - we didn't allow the spaniel upstairs. The condition downstairs reflects a property suitable for dogs and children, perfectly clean but showing signs of wear and tear. We were left wood for the wood burner and found milk, eggs and bacon in the fridge. Downstairs was cosy but upstairs quite cold, the children made use of the extra bed linen provided. It would have been warmer if we had not kept the door between upstairs and downstairs firmly closed because of the dog. There were additional electric convector heaters but we didn't use them. Outside was minus six and very frosty! The surrounding countryside provides excellent and varied dog walking. We are planning a return visit in the summer.

Stayed as went to see my father who lives in hadleigh so arrived late but no problems lights were on and place very warm. Woodburner gave additional comfort but you will need a car but taxis were cheap. Will want to go back

On a cold weekend you would hope that a holiday cottage would be a cosy retreat - not so this one, what's more the owner wants payment for wood for the fire just to bring the temperature up to something habitable. There is no clothes dryer and no DVD player (contrary to the ads). No visit from the the owner to check on the central heating or to tell us the basics such as where to put the rubbish. Overall the property did not live up to expectations. I am sure things look very different in the summer. The surrounding Suffolk villages and countryside are of course great.

We booked this cottage as it was central and could accommodate a family of 5 adults and our dog, we were not disappointed. It was a 10-15 minute stroll to the high street through lovely grounds and countryside. The cottage had everything we needed and was very clean, it wouldn't take much to up the rating it's been given, if I was being very picky I would have wanted a dishwasher and power shower, but that's just me.

The cottage was stunning, the inside was lovely and very comfortable, and the gardens and grounds were a joy. It was peaceful and relaxing. We really liked the chance to bring our dog and having such lovely walks from the door. Would recommend this cottage.
