- Very Good
“A little piece of heaven on earth”
Our first trip to the Olde Laundry - lovely warm welcome from Jackie and John and goodies in the fridge as well. If you love cottages, you will love the Olde Laundry - it is beautiful and very well equipped. The fishing was good and the grounds are lovely, lots of places to sit and draw/read a book/or just sit listening to the birdsong. Visited Southwold, which we love for its beach and beach huts, and Diss which has plenty of shops/restaurants/supermarkets and a mere - where we spent time feeding the baby ducks, coots and moorhens. Missing it already - and we would definitely recommend the Olde Laundry. Thanks Jackie and John for a great holiday - we will return.
“A warm welcome”
On arriving Jackie and John's warm welcome began the relaxation and wind down we were looking for. Enough information given on the operation of the cottage, a tour of the gardens, river area, local info about eating out etc and the welcome pack found in the fridge began the start of a great week stay in The Olde Laundry This was our first visit but in discussion with guests from the other cottages revealed that some had been coming for a number of years - what a recommendation to both place and countryside. Lots to see and do throughout the area, with lots of walking (at least it was flat for us coming from the scottish highlands!) No local shops in the village - self catering meant travelling a short distance to larger areas for supplies however it also introduces you to the custom of local fresh produce being sold by local people at the side of roads/streets. A great stay.
“Excellent 17 th century cottage”
In very peaceful situation with excellent grounds around in which to wander. Good situation for touring with Norwich. coast and broads all easily reached. Cottage divided into 2 - ground floor and first floor and both contain everything you could want - like home from home.
“Everything you need for a perfect holiday”
We have stayed in these beautiful cottages many times and can't wait to return. John and Jackie are wonderful hosts who do everything they can to make your stay a most happy and memorable experience. The cottages are a joy to stay in, they are extremely comfortable and well equipped, in fact they are a real "home from home". If you add this to the wonderful tranquil riverside setting you have the perfect ingredients for a great "get away from it all" relaxing holiday. We are already planning our next visit for later this year.
