“A lovely relaxing place to stay... can't wait to go back!”
Reviewed 4 April 2012 for a stay in March 2012

I booked The Grain House as a weekend get away for myself and a group of friends and i am so glad i did. I thought the photos of the house were lovely but the house itself is even better in the flesh!

It's kitted out with everything you could possible need and the owners even baked us a cake as a welcome gift (which we duly enjoyed with tea as we settled in.)

I really cannot recommend The Grain House enough. Luckily for us the weather wasn't too cold so we even got a couple of uses out of the hot tub in the garden, which was a real bonus.

Several of my group are already thinking about returning with their familes in the near future.

“Highly Recommended”
Reviewed 5 March 2012 for a stay in February 2012

The accommodation is spacious, even for larger groups. Four of us and 2 dogs stayed using half the house. There was plenty of room and we were extremely comfortable, there is also a good degree of privacy if you are not close family. The accommodation is finished to a high standard and includes everything you could possibly need.

“Golden Wedding Holiday”
Reviewed 29 October 2011 for a stay in October 2011

This was a great property and location for our family get together to celebrate my parents Golden Wedding. The owners provided everything we needed and more including a bottle of wine and a cake on arrival. The property was kitted out to a very high standard and the facilities were superb. The family really enjoyed the games barn and the dogs really enjoyed the large garden. The walks on the owners farm were really good with plenty of wildlife to see aswell. There is lots to do in the area, beautiful villages and small towns, stately homes, antiques and fabulous places to eat and drink. We particularly liked Cavendish (super Pub and Tearoom),Clare (Country park and antiques centre), Lavenham (ancient town) and Long Melford (Hall,Church and Town). Only wish we could've stayed longer.

“Absolutely fantastic place to stay”
Reviewed 8 September 2011 for a stay in August 2011

Loved the cottage as soon as I saw it. Having been recently renovated, the owners had thought of everything even down to a hot tub in the garden which for us was the finishing touch. We travelled with my son who is 15 but this cottage caters for children of all ages with loads to do even before you leave the cottage. The boys (my husband and son) enjoyed fishing in the river at the end of the garden and even caught some fish!! Its a good location for local walks.
Enjoyed everything about this cottage.

“Excellent choice for extended family holiday”
Reviewed 24 August 2011 for a stay in August 2011

This delightful property has been finished and furnished to a very high standard but in such a way as made it ideal and relaxing accommodation for the adults and young children in our party. The large, attractive but safe garden with swings, hot tub and barbeque provided entertainment for all and the barn with table tennis, snooker table, etc. provided alternative entertainment for the more energetic amongst us. We received a warm welcome (and a home made cake!) from Pippa and Peter who have provided everything at the property to ensure a very comfortable, relaxing and enjoyable stay. Thoroughly recommended.
