The Gildhall was everything we'd hoped and more. Full of character, plenty of space and conveniently situated for visiting many of Suffolk's treasures. Five of us stayed and we weren't cramped. Plenty of space if you wanted your own time. Our little dog loved it too!
This is a stunning characterful cottage in a perfect location easily reachable by car and also only 15 mins drive from Colchester Station and around 45 mins from Stansted airport. The breakfast pack and tea coffee and cake that the owner supplied where much appreciated as was the detailed information pack on both the cottage and the local area. There are many good pubs and restaurants within a short drive and we were not disappointed with our choice of The Crown in Stoke by Nayland, the fish dishes in particular were lovely.Ours was a family group of 5 with the age range of 70-23 so good for all as long as you can negotiate the winding staircase that is! The Aga and wood burning fires set the scene for a perfect winter break but equally i am sure the well kept grounds would be a delight in the spring/summertime. We cannot wait to return as Guilhall Cottage more than ticks all the boxes , the place is so pretty you will relax as soon as you step inside just perfect.
Our second visit to stay at the Gildhall- we brought our teenage daughter with us - kicking and screaming as she didn't want to leave the civilisation of Surrey ( her words!) and she has been converted !
We had a lovely couple of days exploring the lovely countryside and de stressing !
The Gidhall is perfectly placed for exploring the local pubs and villages - and has every possible amenitie you could wish for - the attention to detail is phenomenal .
The welcome bacon, eggs, milk and carrot cake - was so wonderful.
We wood highly recommend the Gildhall to everyone .
Cannot wait to return and we are already discussing when to rreturn as we drove Dow the A12 back to Surrey !
Thank you !!!!
The cottage is very nice, well equipped, has a nice garden and is clean. It would have been nice if the owner welcomed us in person instead of just leaving a breakfast welcome pack. We met no one from the beginning until we left, but overall a pleasant stay.
The information pack (folder) is a bit out of date, there is information about tickets to Framlingham Castle that is not accurate.
