Comments from the guest book in 2013:

"What a wonderful stay we have had here - the house has so much character and we loved the care that had gone into furnishing it....milk, tea, coffee, even a bottle of wine on arrival - what a lovely welcome. We loved the great selection of books and DVDs for those rainy nights and really appreciated the 'homely' feel of the house - beds were really comfy..." S and A, East Yorkshire

"Wow! We love this cottage, welcoming and homely, spotlessly clean. All needs catered for, beautiful decor. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay." D and B, Liverpool.

"This is a wonderful and lovely little cottage. Every detail speaks of the care and hospitality of Mary for her guests....And what beautiful and lovely surroundings! The little village of Framlingham was not in our Michelin guide - what a mistake!....My son was delighted to find this immense castle just behind our cottage, my wife and I were surprised by the friendliness of the people of this town; with all its pubs and restaurants and monuments it has everything to attract tourists from abroad like us...P and V, Belgium.

"Truly wonderful cottage and a delight to stay, wished it could have been longer." T and D.

"We both love Framlingham and the surrounding villages and countryside, but, WOW!! did this cottage make our stay even better than expected. from the welcome pack to the overall presentation of the property, we knew from the moment we stepped inside that it was special, it has an excellent feel, very inviting and homely,,." C and S, The Wirral.

"Thank you for a lovely stay. We loved Framlingham and the cottage was a home from home, if not better!" C and M.

About this location

The East Anglia region

Located in East Anglia between Essex and Norfolk, Suffolk - the land where the 'South Folk' lived - is a county with a rich heritage and history. Tranquil and relaxed, it has ancient market towns, rolling farmland, villages of thatched, colour-washed cottages and a prolific array of historic churches. Its location on the east coast of England tends to give a drier, sunnier and less windy climate than most of the UK, making it a great place to explore any time of the year. The low-lying landscape (the highest point in the county is Great Wood Hill at 128m) and over 5,000km of waymarked paths makes Suffolk a great place for walkers of all abilities and ages. In East Suffolk, as well as the gently rolling countryside, you can explore the endless reaches of Rendlesham forest, the reedbeds of Minsmere, the 45 miles of shingle or sand beaches on the coast, as well as the variety of seaside towns between Felixstowe and Lowestoft.

Countless artists have been inspired by the Suffolk countryside, from the beauty of Constable country in the south to stunning woodlands and colourful heaths on the coast, Arts and culture in Suffolk are vibrant and varied, from theatre, exhibitions and classic concerts, to rock music, gigs and alternative comedy. East Suffolk is home to the the Aldeburgh Festival in June, the Latitude Festival in July, and FolkEast in August, not forgetting Dance East and the Jerwood Dance House on the Ipswich waterfront.

In the wider East Anglian region, there are the Norfolk Broads and the Wash; Lincoln, Norwich, Cambridge and Colchester with their universities; many stately homes and gardens; the endless Norfolk beaches and the traditional seaside towns of Essex; and the wide variety of arts and music festivals throughout the summer.


Framlingham is the perfect town for strolling, shopping, chatting, and dining. Market Hill is the town's centre with markets on Saturday and Tuesday offering great local produce, trinkets and collectibles, with cafés where you can sit and watch the world go by. The town has excellent independent shops for clothes, food, crafts, gifts and antiques and a mouth-watering selection of tea shops, gastropubs and restaurants.

Framlingham Castle, once the home of Mary Tudor, is a short stroll from Market Hill. In 1553, Mary and her entourage set out from the castle for London when she heard that she, and not Lady Jane Grey, would be the next Queen of England. Today, visitors can soak up the castle's 800 years of history and can walk round its walls for magnificent views of the surrounding town and countryside. Surrounding the Castle is the Mere, popular with walkers and a natural haven for wildlife, containing over 290 species of plants and 80 species of birds.
