Little Swattesfield Cottage Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
Little Swattesfield Cottage is situated in the peaceful hamlet of Thornham Magna near to Eye in Suffolk. The cottage sleeps four people and has one double bedroom, one twin and a family bathroom. Also in the cottage is a fitted kitchen, a dining room and a sitting room with an open fire. Outside is off road parking and lawned gardens with a patio and furniture. Making a wonderful touring base and set in beautiful countryside, Little Swattesfield Cottage is a superb family holiday home in Suffolk.

With a number of shops, pubs and restaurants, the small town of Eye is a well-served town located in the heart of East Anglia. With monthly cinema nights held at the community centre, this charming location is just five miles away from the market town of Diss in the beautiful Waveney Valley. With examples of Georgian and Edwardian buildings as well as an award winning museum and the public park, Eye is a thriving community offering plenty to do. There is a market every Friday and coincides with a local antiques and collectables auction. The town of Stowmarket is close by and provides an 18-hole golf course along with Suffolk's only open-air museum and a variety of shops and pubs. The Suffolk Coast, Thetford Forest with its Go Ape high wire experience and the Steam Museum at Bressingham are all within easy driving distance.

Picturesque rolling Fens, unspoilt beaches, and pretty waterways – East Anglia is a dream holiday destination. Norfolk offers beaches, saltmarshes and quaint villages whilst equally as charming are the coast and countryside of Suffolk.

The quietness of the place. The wood burning stove.

It was a lovely rustic cottage and as described, secluded with only one neighbour. Cockerels in the morning and chickens wandering around as they pleased. And the sound of birds, magical. The cottage was a delight to stay in and was lovely and warm with the wood burner, it felt very homely.

Very peaceful, we were able to completely shut ourselves away from the world. Gorgeous woodwork throughout the cottage. Had everything we needed.

Nice area, cottage is as described and very nice ( could do with a bit of diy about the place) However the garden is not enclosed it has holes over the fence and the property next doors pond is very large I wouldn't really call it a pond! When you follow the public footpath you can see they have at least two big holes next door one is at least 20ft deep so I would not recommend this cottage because of its location to people with children or curious dogs at all

I think this is a case of renting out the property in order to generate income to invest in it rather than the other way round as it is far from the finished article and there are a number of things that, had I known, I would have probably given it a miss and looked elsewhere. Such as, the last thing a really want to see is dead flies everywhere or sticky patches stuck on rotten windows in the dining room and kitchen to attract the flies to their impending doom. The shower was next to useless even after I descaled the shower head with vinegar and whole place ( upstairs especially) was damp and smelt musty which was not surprising due to the amount of condensation. The front room was nice and cozy and once I had cleaned the glass of the wood burner it was nice to sit and watch the fire however the settees are not the most comfortable. Also beware of the dining room chairs as these are all broken and we had to extract a child who had to be pulled out when the seat collapsed. Beware also the wooden decking as it is treacherously slippy and should be avoided at all costs. With regards the bedrooms the double shouldn't really be classed as a double as you can't get in or out from both sides. Perhaps thought should be given to making this a single room and changing the twin to a double..... Although this sounds all negative it is a nice location with pleasant neighbours and nice walks on the doorstep of the property it is just not ready to rent out yet and I would not return until all the work to make it liveable had been completed. I am not a serial moaner and don't expect 5 Star service unless I am paying 5 star prices but I do expect the basic levels of comfort.
