“A pleasent stay at a charming Cottage.”
Reviewed 4 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

My wife and I enjoyed our stay. Particularly the warm welcome we received from Jackie and John and the "goodies" in the fridge to allow us to settle in without having to go out the the local supermarket immediately on arrival. This was a thoughtful gesture and typical of our hosts. The cottage is charming and had everything we needed. The car parking was very secure which is important to me. The grounds are extensive and the tour John gave us was informative. It was nice to see the large fish swimming about in the river at the end of the property. We came for a family wedding and stayed for a week: we would use the Olde Laundry again.

“It doesn't get any better than this”
Reviewed 1 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We have had yet another wonderful holiday in this lovely cottage set in these beautiful tranquil surroundings. The Olde Laundry was, as always, superbly clean, comfortable and well equipped. John and Jackie give you such a warm and friendly welcome, that you start to relax from the moment you arrive. We are just sorry that our holiday is over for now, but are very happy knowing that we are returning again very soon.

“Unbeatable”

We have been coming to The Olde Laundry every year for the past 10 years or so. It is furnished, decorated and equipped to the highest standard. John & Jackie are the perfect owners/hosts. On arrival: a bottle of wine and a bottle of milk in the fridge and a yummy cake on the table. Ideally situated close to the market town of Diss. Norwich, Bury St Edmunds and Ipswsich are 20 miles away. The coastal resort of Southwold is about an hour's drive and is a lovely unspoilt Victorian resort. If there is a better place than the Olde Laundry, we have yet to find it! You won't find a single negative comment in the Visitors Book. There are 3 other cottages in the same place where we have stayed with friends from Romania and Germany.

“The Perfect "Get Away From It All" Break”
Reviewed 18 September 2011 for a stay in September 2011

We stayed with Jackie and John twice last year and what better testament to the charm and comfort of the property that we came again this year and stayed in the Olde Laundry, a ground floor apartment. As usual Jackie and John's thoughtful adherence to your comfort is second to none. This is an ideal 'chill out and relax' destination. Jackie always leaves a bottle of wine and cakes in the fridge. What better start to a quiet and beautiful retreat. The fishing is good but we come for the peace, the friendliness of Jackie and John and the Aaahhh feeling you get when sitting outside listening to nothing more than the birds and the distant mooing of cows. Please try it, you will not be disappointed. We will certainly be going again.
