- Very Good
a very warm welcome but very rural nearest town 10 miles a car is a must no upstair loo stairs very steep must be fit
Owner's reply: Watsons Farm is in a rural situation down a long drive surrounded by fields and this is what gives it its peace and tranquility, much appreciated by numerous returning guests.
“a little bit of Suffolk tranquility”
Watson's farm is the wing of a beautiful farm house 1/2 mile down a farm drive surrounded by fields. The cottage provides all that you need. There is an enclosed garden for dogs, very easy access to some great walks around the fields. An open fire with firewood is included. The farm is approx. 2 miles from Fressingfield which has an excellent village shop and pub.
“Cosy and comfortable”
It was easy booking with Mary and we found the property very comfortable, cosy and historical. All the amenities from home. Not too far down the road from a shop and various pubs and a restaurant. Look forward to our next stay.
“Paradise in Suffolk”
This was the most peaceful & comfortable location we could have rented. The cottage is charming in a rustic way but full of all mod cons you would want in your own home. The kitchen is perfectly equipped to eat in and the lounge wonderfully comfortable to relax in at night. The bedrooms are lovely and comfortable and the whole property extremely clean. The garden out the back is so relaxing on a hot day that you never want to go in. The owner lives on site and is a lovely, friendly accommodating lady who goes out of her way to please. We struggle to find any negative points which must be a good sign. The only downside is the rickety staircase that you have to encounter in the night to get to the loo. However this is not a problem it is just that we all live in a world where we expect en-suites. The shower/WC is modern and hygenic. Although we have recommended the cottage for elderly travellers it would be a problem to anyone who is not too spritely. I highly recommend this property to others wishing to rent.
“A little piece of heaven!”
We have holidayed at Watsons Farm on six occasions over the last five years during different seasons and it just gets better and better. Mary Hinde is always very friendly and helpful. The cottage is delightful and quirky. Our particular favourite season is winter, as after being out all day we can return to a roaring fire. The surrounding countryside is fantastic for peace and quiet. The location is wonderful for wildlife from hares in the spring to swallows in the stables in the summer and barn owls in the winter. Our daughters have spent time with Mary helping with the horses in her stables. The area around Watsons Farm is ideal for walkers and cyclists and it is not far from the Suffolk Heritage Coast. All in all we have always enjoyed staying at Watsons Farm and will continue to do so.
“We are about to return for the 4th time”
We have loved starying at Watson's Farm. It is a beautiful cottage with everything you need (including log fire) in a fantastic location. Mary, the owner, is always friendly and helpful. Apart from its beauty, the surrounding countryside provides lots of interest with Southwold, Aldeburgh and Minsmere (bird sanctuary) all wonderful places to visit. We have also travelled a little further afield to Constable's birthplace and the Mediaeval town of Lavenham. The local pubs have character and also excellent reasonably priced food. We are looking forward to returning in April.
“Absolute peace in your very own home in the country”
I have been going to Watsons Farm for years now and I go back because it doesn't feel like a "country cottage" but a home from home. I love old buildings and Watsons Farm has history in buckets, but with a warmth that is rare in rental properties. It is a great base to explore this wonderful part of Suffolk. You are only a short drive from so many wonderful places such as Blythburgh church, Southwold (for the antiques), Walberswick (The Anchor does great food), Snape Maltings and the concert hall etc. etc. The Fox and Goose in Fressingfield (the nearest village) is a mecca for foodies and has a wonderful store open all hours (don't do the Tesco thing!). I would recommend Watsons Farm to anybody who loves the English countryside, a warm welcome and wants relaxation.
“A peaceful location, ideal for visiting the Suffolk countryside & coast”
This 17th century cottage is full of character but is comfortable and has a homely feel about it. It has a spacious lounge and Kitchen/diner and the two bedrooms have more than adequate wardrobe and cupboard space. The property has central heating and the lounge contains a delightful log fire. It is situated 300 yards from the nearest country road and is surrounded by spacious gardens and open fields. The nearby villages have well stocked stores and Halesworth & Harleston provide a more extensive range of shops. Above all was the warm & friendly welcome we received from Mrs Hinde and her friends, responding positively to any requests we made. Easy access to the coast by car and very pleasant motoring through the quiet Suffolk country lanes.
