“Peaceful hideaway in the Suffolk countryside,”

Reviewed 28 Jul 2019

A lovely little cottage, situated behind the owners' house, but with its own private garden. Ideal location for the main towns nearby and for trips to the coast. Quaint but comfortable with all the facilities required for simple self-catering and wonderfully helpful hosts. This was our second visit, as we had enjoyed it so much previously.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review. It's always good to know that people enjoy their holidays in The Gig House.
