“the Old piggery” We have enjoyed the cottage the Old Piggery. The cottage is furnished in a modern style, with comfortable beds and a beautiful and convenient kitchen. There is a fun place where you with the seat from the kitchen at the end of the afternoon, with a fine wine of Caroline can go enjoy the last rays of sunshine. Thank you so much that we at you.
“Excellent accomodation for all ages” loved the accommodation, loved the area Bury is fantastic for shops, bars bistro and restaurants.
there are a lot of local eateries ask Rupert your host . a wide knowledge and with lots of recommendations.
“A superb house” This house has a very welcoming feel and the owners go out of there way to make sure their guests are comfortable. Great location, wonderful sun room and garden and high standard of fittings. Everything you need for a serene holiday
“Hidden little gem in Horringer, a great place to stay for visiting Ickworth House” I'm always a little skeptical when booking places without reviews such as The Cart Lodge but we were keen to find somewhere in Horringer so we could be on hand to help out with prep the day before/morning of the wedding we were attending at nearby Ickworth House. At the very worst we planned to just use it as a base so if the accommodation wasn't amazing, we didn't have to spend a lot of time there. Needless to say we were very impressed when Angie showed us round; the pictures and description do not do it enough justice.
The Cart lodge is such a lovely place to stay, with its beautiful exposed beams, cosy cottage feel and excellent location. The lodge is like a rabbit warren; on entering there is a welcoming little entrance hall leading into open plan living area, with a double bedroom and a shower/toilet room coming off it. Going through to the back of the lodge, there is another door leading to another sitting room/double bedroom, with a double (albeit small and low) loft bedroom - perfect for children (but quite rightly not recommended for little ones under 5). From the sitting room there is a beautiful bathroom with walk in shower and separate bath, and also another seperate toilet next door to it. Angie very kindly popped the underfloor heating on in this area prior to our arrival as she knew we had our 5 year old with us. The layout of the lodge was absolutely perfect for us; we slept in the sitting room area with our son using the attic room whilst our jet lagged friends who had flown in from the USA for the wedding we're able to rest in peace in the main bedroom.
From first point of enquiry right through to us leaving Angie was on hand at all times and has been so accommodating. Angie's attention to detail throughout the lodge definitely did not go unnoticed - the kitchen was very well stocked, enough so for us to cook a full roast dinner, complete with cleaning products, dishwasher tablets and washing up liquid. She had gone to the trouble of providing tea, coffee, sugar, milk and individual boxes of cereal which was a hit with the smallest member of our party! In the bathroom little toiletries had been provided which was a lovely little touch.
The beautiful National Trust property, Ickworth House, is a stonesthrow away from the lodge; around a 2 minute drive away and within walking distance for those who don't mind a short hike. Bury St Edmunds is about a 5-10 minute drive away with lots of supermarkets and shops should you need them.
All in all we have had a very comfortable stay at Cart Lodge, making a very long but happy weekend even more enjoyable. Thank you Angie, your beautiful Lodge comes with a high recommendation from us.
