Had a fabulous weekend at the cottage - everything has been very well thought through. Good quality furnishings, large shower room, beautiful views across the fields from the main bedroom, lounge and kitchen, table and chairs and grassed area. We got a glimpse of the resident barn owl and my husband had a dabble in the owners fishing lake - perfectly peaceful. The owners were even kind enough to drop us at the bus stop opposite the Fox & Goose pub so that we could get the number 40 bus to Norwich - we sweet talked the driver on the way back to drop us at the end of Storeys Lane near the water tower and only had a short walk back to the cottage, although in fairness we could have easily biked it to/from Fressingfield. We also biked it to Cratfield to see the wild horses, on to Laxfield and the Kings Head pub (known as the Low House and it has no bar but pours its beers directly from the barrels - great character and definitely worth a visit), on to the Fox & Goose and The Swan all within easy reach. What more could one ask for? Ah yes, of course - one dog included! Lilly is adorable ...
Great stay at moat farm,
John and Lorna's are very nice and Lily the dog is adorable.
Saw owls on the farm on a daily basis.
Would stay here again and would recommend to anyone.
An old cart lodge converted into a very comfortable home from home. All fixtures and fittings are to a high standard and the lodge is well equipped.It is well suited to disabled people or persons with mobility issues. There's a ramp to the front door, a large walk-in shower and doorways are wide. Not much to do in the immediate area, but there are lots of villages/small towns a short drive away and many places of interest a bit further afield. We would recommend Ickworth and Sutton Hoo. It's a wonderful place to get away from the hustle and bustle, but you do need a car. John and Lorna are very nice and helpful, and Lilly is always on hand if you like dogs! She lives having her tummy scratched.
The Cart Lodge was ideal for a short break. Clean, well equipped and comfortable and friendly and accommodating owners. Ramped access and walk in shower much appreciated by disabled husband.
Fressingfield is well located for both coast and countryside and we would be happy to return to explore the area more thoroughly.
We were disappointed to miss the barn owl that regularly hunts nearby but really enjoyed some wonderful sunsets from the west facing sitting room (picture attached).
