What Our Guests Say

A wonderful place to stay

A wonderful place to stay. Great location for exploring the local history and heritage, as well as easy access to the coast and the nature reserves. The beautiful loft living room is perfect for relaxing in, watching the sunset over the fields.

Airbnb review, Hayloft

Great group/family accommodation

Lovely quiet setting. Well equipped and maintained accommodation. Welcome eggs and bottle of wine much appreciated! Family friendly although worth taking a blackout blind if your kids wake at dawn as the curtains let a lot of light in. Worked very well for large group of us spread between the farmhouse and hayloft. Thank you- we hope to return again!

Tripadvisor review, Hayloft and Farmhouse

We loved our stay!

We loved our stay! Tina and her husband were very welcoming. The property is very comfortable, well-maintained and has a well-equipped kitchen. The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of towels. A good location for exploring or stay in and relax on the patio and in the garden areas. The lads loved the ‘games room’ in the outbuilding!

Airbnb review, Hayloft

A wonderful location

The accommodation suited us all perfectly, a wonderful location. The house (s) are well equipped and comfortable. The only pity is that it was so short – maybe next time! Thank you so much.

A lovely break!

We were blessed with a heatwave and some torrential showers but saved from the Beast from the East. Snape Maltings provided a different, refreshing shopping experience while the men preferred the local Cretingham Golf Club. Lovely walks around Framlingham, Aldeburgh and Orford while the White Horse at Easton provided an excellent pub lunch with entertainment for the children in the garden. A lovely break!

Delightful cottage

Spent a lovely three days at your delightful cottage. Our first time in Suffolk and this was a perfect location from which to explore the area. We enjoyed Southwold, Aldeburgh and Woodbridge.

Loved the upside down layout and the lounge is a lovely place to spend time at the end of the day. The games room is a great asset, as is the table in the field, perfect for enjoying a glass of Pimms at 6 o’clock!

Wonderfully peaceful cottage

We had a lovely stay in this wonderfully peaceful cottage that was clean, spacious and perfect for a family break. Tina was also so accommodating for a little one. Thank you

Airbnb review, Hayloft

Loved the house!

Needed a few relaxing days away and got just that. Love the house and the space it provided and as a perfect base for exploring Suffolk. Colchester Zoo was excellent, Stonham Barns and Owl Sanctuary great and the Old Mill pub/restaurant was excellent and highly recommended. Thanks to owners, Tina for meeting us and providing recommendations for visits to attractions!

What a brilliant weekend

What a brilliant weekend celebrating a birthday and all our family being together. Special memories made – perfect accommodation for us all. Went to Mr Chan’s Chinese, Framlingham Castle and market and wonderful lunch at White Horse, Badingham.

Beautiful house and gardens

We have loved staying in the Hayloft, beautiful house and gardens. Weather was also fab! Will definitely stay again as it was the perfect location for visiting friends nearby. Thank you.

One of the most restful holidays we have had

It has been one of the most restful holidays we have had. A long over due to need to relax. We’ve enjoyed every day and the beautiful places to visit in the Suffolk countryside. We join with others who visited to say thank you for the little extras and a great place for a wheelchair user.

Second stay in 7 months

Our second stay in 7 months. This is becoming a bit of a bolt hole for us. Unseasonally cold and wet weather has kept us “home” quite a bit but this has given us a welcome rest so not all bad. One highlight was the bakery stall at the Saturday Fram market. Fab savoury and sweet foods to scoff here in the coziness of Cart Lodge. Harbour at Southwold gave us a lovely walk/lunch. Cinema and meal at Riverside in Woodbridge was fully accessible and fab.

Visitor book comment (wheelchair user), Cart Lodge

Idyllic stay – 100% recommended!

These huts are absolutely beautiful, they give you everything you need, microwave, small bathroom, pull out sofa bed. It’s very spacious! The BBQ outside was perfect for the hot bank holiday as well, and all the charcoal you needed was provided. They are situated in a lovely remote patch of grass giving you lots of privacy! The location is a half an hours drive away from a lot of beaches, which is really handy. Overall, we absolutely loved our stay and will definitely be returning!

Tripadvisor review, Sage Shepherd Hut

Wonderful getaway

We had a wonderful 5 day getaway in this fully equipped,characterful property. Everything had been thought of and it was very clean and tidy on our arrival. It is set in a nice quiet location but only 1 mile away from the lovely Framlingham with it’s castle,shops and places to eat. A great base for us to explore this beautiful county. We would recommend this gem of a property to all ages.

Tripadvisor review, Hayloft

Heavenly stay!

We were delighted with Willow cottage in every way and the owners were great too. Many of our friends have asked for details following my posting of photos of it on social media. We will be back!

Owners Direct review, Willow Cottage

Warm cosy house

Although weather could have been better we have enjoyed the warm cosy house and Suffolk sites. The children really enjoyed Stonham Owl Sanctuary and found Dunwich Museum very interesting. Southwold was a great place to visit for the Pier and fish and chips on the beach. Lovely to relax in the beautiful living room in the evenings. Thank you.

Easter Weekend with Family

We found this gem on-line after our family from aged 20 to 83 years wanted to explore Suffolk during the 4 day Easter break. The booking process was easy with arrival arrangements very informing. The farmhouse is even better than the pictures. It is beautifully furnished, very clean & comfortable with plenty of space for different family members to spread out. Whilst cooking in the well equipped kitchen, others were watching sport on the TV in one reception area, others watched a film in the lounge, board games (many supplied) were being played at the large dining table in front of the wood burning stove (fuel supplied)& the smaller lounge was perfect for reading. The garden provided lots of opportunities to watch the birds & rabbits. An added bonus for the rainy evenings was the table football and pool table in the old barn. The large front garden which sets the farmhouse back from the road was perfect for our Easter egg hunt. For people not wishing to cook there are plenty of eateries and takeaways within a 5 minute drive. Location is great for exploring the Suffolk coast (Southwold and Aldeburgh our favourites). In addition to the Farmhouse there are 2 shepherds huts on-site which look fantastic & 2 other types of accommodation which makes Boundary farm a great venue for larger group gatherings with plenty of parking. Wish our stay had been longer & we would love to book again (when not raining)!!

Tripadvisor review, Farmhouse

Bucolic escape

A lovely bucolic escape in a gorgeous shepherds hut. Tina was extremely helpful and gave us tips on local restaurants and walks.

Airbnb review, Sage Shepherd Hut

Escapism as its finest!

Thoughtfully converted stable with excellent attention to detail. From the bi fold doors opening on to your own deck, to the exceedingly well equipped kitchen and super comfy bed – we couldn’t fault a thing. Having driven through the snow to get there, we were greeted on arrival by Tina and Chris who had provided us lovely fresh eggs, milk, cookies and wine and gave us a full run down of the accommodation before leaving us to enjoy our beautiful surroundings. We had a 3 night stay and managed to fit in a trip to the Framlingham market (excellent to stock up on all the food for our stay), went a little further afield to Southwold Pier (a really lovely seaside town with arcades, great fish and chips and a lovely town centre) and spent a relaxing few hours in the local pub. I’d imagine you could definitely fit more in and there is plenty to do locally (lots of very helpful guides in the cottage – again with the excellent attention to detail from Tina and Chris), however we really loved the space in the cottage and spent some really great quality time together (no toddler for the weekend!!) lounging, playing games, eating lovely food and all in such gorgeous surroundings. If anything, the snow was a bonus! Apparently we’re fairly adept at making snowmen…. Would absolutely recommend this place and would not hesitate to return!

Tripadvisor review, Willow Cottage

A lovely cosy billet

A lovely cosy billet – thank you! Quiet and secluded. Lovely spot to celebrate our wedding anniversary. A great location to explore Suffolk countryside and the coast. Good beer at the Station in Framlingham. The Common Room on Bridge Street excellent for a lunch. Hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did.

Visitor book comment, Cart Lodge

Fantastic half term week

What a fantastic half term week we have had in the Hayloft. Wonderful clean, warm and very comfortable accommodation. A couple of small technical issues early on were rectified straight away without any fuss by Chris, who is a very personable and welcoming host, who along with Tina couldn’t have been more friendly, communicative and helpful. We loved this part of Suffolk – so much to do for families both inland and on the coast. We would definitely recommend Boundary Farm and we will definitely return to the Hayloft. We have all loved this holiday – thank you!

Visitor Book comment, Hayloft

Amazing wildlife

We booked for a peaceful, scenic, quiet few days away and we got exactly that. The grounds of the cottage and the surrounding area are second to none, with amazing wildlife. The cottage itself is very cosy and relaxing, everything you need. Thank you very much for your kind hospitality and for the few treats on arrival. We hope to visit again soon.

Guest book comment, Willow Cottage

Lovely big skies and fields

We had a great stay in the cottage for our New Year break. Lovely big skies and fields, yet only a five min drive (or run through the fields) to Framlingham. It’s a quaint little town with a beautiful castle, nice pub and cafes and market. Tina welcomed us very warmly and was very accommodating. We’d definitely stay again if we head out that way.

Airbnb review, Cart Lodge

Lovely tranquil spot

Situated in a lovely tranquil spot, this shepherds hut is very clean, stylish and well-equipped. Would recommend to anyone wishing to get away from it all to somewhere quiet and comfortable. Tina was helpful and accommodating and made checking in super easy.

Airbnb review, Sage Shepherd Hut

A great host

Tina was a great host, who visited us upon arrival. The hut was perfect for our post Xmas decompression session. And Fram was a charming town with lots to offer. Would love to come back, in the summer next time!

Airbnb review, Sage Shepherd Hut


This was the first time my wife and I have stayed in a Shepherd Hut and it was perfect. Tina quickly responded to all messages around booking and check in. When we arrived at the hut it was in the middle of a field just as we had hoped and the inside exceeded all our expectations. A hut at the end of December may have seemed like an odd choice but the wood burner and amazing duvet meant we stayed nice and warm. Tina even left us eggs, milk, tea bags, sugar, olive oil and balsamic vinegar so we were well looked after. If you are looking for a break away from the rat race look no further!!

Airbnb review, Thyme Shepherd Hut

Comfy and cosy

We immediately felt at home in the lovely and well equipped cottage. Comfy and cosy, warm and welcoming. The prosecco and home made mince pies were very welcome! The Christmas tree a lovely touch. We’ve enjoyed watching moorhens, bunnies, squirrels, crows, jays, thrush and many more little feathered visitors. Peaceful and relaxing – the perfect Christmas hideaway. Thank you, we hope to visit again soon.

Visitor book comment, Willow Cottage


Just what we needed!

Thank you for a lovely, comfortable, peaceful place to unwind. Just what we needed! The White Horse is as good as we hoped – a beautiful old pub, friendly and good food – not too expensive. The surroundings here are ideal – managed to catch squirrels playing and lots of moorhens – sadly no owls. Thank you for the very thoughtful ‘welcome gifts’ greatly appreciated. The home made mince pies are delicious. Will definitely recommend to those we know. Thank you again. Merry Christmas.

Visitor book comment, Willow Cottage

A unique space

This is a fabulous place to stay. The hut is beautiful, the craftsmanship throughout is stunning and makes it a unique space. It has everything you need for a comfortable break away from everyday life. The log burner and insulation ensured that we were cosy on the cool autumn nights. A perfect location for exploring the coast and surrounding villages, a stay here is highly recommended!

Airbnb review, Sage Shepherd Hut

Fantastic cottage

Fantastic cottage. Tranquil location. Lovely host. The bottle of wine and welcome biscuits was a lovely touch. Would definitely recommend this Place and would love to come back again and stay for longer!!! Thank you Tina x

Airbnb review, Hayloft

A beautiful, peaceful cottage

A beautiful, peaceful cottage in the best setting ever. Time to unwind, and this is where to do it. Plenty of wildlife to follow, and keep you entertained. Well equipped cottage. Plenty of places to visit and within good reach. Tina and Chris very friendly. And if you love classic cars then Chris is your man. Would definitely stay again.

Owners Direct Review, Willow Cottage

The cutest shepherds hut there ever was

I stayed here with a friend and had the loveliest time. We loved the log burner and fire-pit–wood for both was left for us in the hut. Not to mention, the fact that the bathroom is inside the hut! The cupboards were stocked with everything you need to cook a meal inside on the stove or on the fire. And although breakfast wasn’t included they left us fresh eggs, milk, and coffee. I highly recommend!

TripAdvisor review, Sage Shepherd Hut

Loved the cottages

Fab weekend celebrating Mum and Dad’s 70th birthday. Loved the cottages and the children had a wonderful time playing in the gardens. Great day at Aldeburgh on the beach and dodging showers and fish and chips by the sea. Sad to be leaving but off to Southwold first for a spot of crabbing. Thanks Chris and Tina

Visitor book comment, Farmhouse and Cart Lodge

The Farmhouse is beautiful

We really enjoyed our stay here. Tina and Chris very helpful. The Farmhouse is beautiful and spacious. Had some lovely trips to the coast at Southwold and Aldeburgh. Would love to come again.

Visitor book comment, Farmhouse

Wonderful accessible accommodation

So pleased to find such a wonderful accessible cottage just for two in this beautiful area which is new for us. Such accessible accommodation is so rare and so needed. Well done! The Queen in Dennington is accessible and does 2 course lunches for £10 at lunchtime. Excellent food.

Visitor book comment, Cart Lodge

We loved it here!

We loved it here! The house had lots of space and very comfortable. Comfy beds and a lovely bathroom. Fully-equipped kitchen and great living room with fantastic views. We enjoyed watching the horses out the window and the washing line was handy when travelling with 2 kids. Also good to have a highchair and travel cot. The setting is perfect. Lots for families to do like visit Framlingham Castle, Walberswick beach, soft play at Woodbridge & bug hunting at Dunwich Heath. Tina was a brilliant host and thought of everything. Would heartily recommend this place to all.

Airbnb review, Hayloft

This is a place where happy childhood holiday memories are made.

The farmhouse was set up perfectly for a family stay. Great gardens and outdoor areas for children to explore, with the added bonus of an old traditional barn with a pool table and table football for those rare rainy evenings. Lovely relaxing stay, and we will be back again.

TripAdvisor review, Farmhouse

Peaceful and tranquil

So peaceful and tranquil…a great place to get away and unwind for a few days. Spotlessly clean, the goodies on arrival were very welcoming. Highly recommended for a place to relax. Thank you to the hosts for a memorable short break.

Airbnb review, Sage Shepherd Hut

Lovely accommodation

Had a lovely week in Suffolk. Lovely accommodation, friendly and helpful hosts. Loved the rustic surroundings. Elliott made friends with children staying next door. Pool table proved very popular! Packed in an awful lot in a week! Favourite spots: Orford (great for crabbing), Walberswick, Woodbridge, Southwold …..

Visitor Book Comment, Hayloft

Beautiful peaceful retreat with nature all around

Good location, close to local pubs and villages like Framlingham. Easy to get to coastal towns like Aldeburgh and Southwold. Really peaceful location with a lot of wildlife to watch, owls, moorhens, rabbits and loads of different birds. Comfortable cottage with a great shower and a good kitchen. We would definitely stay there again, we loved it!

TripAdvisor review, Willow Cottage, July 2017

A great location

This is a well equipped farmhouse in a great location. car essential because of its remote location but the peace and tranquility it offers is well worth it

Trip Advisor farmhouse review, July 2017

Wonderful place

Wonderful place, peaceful setting and great accommodation with excellent facilities. You have gone the extra mile with your little extra touches. We had a great stay.

Visitor book comment, Cart Lodge, July 2017

Absolutely perfect!

Thank you very much Tina and Chris. The cottage was absolutely perfect in every way and so convenient for places to visit and also to relax on the patio watching the birds, rabbits and pheasants. We have had a  wonderful time.

Visitor book comment, Cart Lodge, June 2017

Lovely property in a beautiful area

We stayed in this property for 3 nights. It was really well maintained and very comfortable. There were 8 of us and there was plenty of space, lovely beds, lovely bedding, towels and essentials all included. Great location with lots within walking distance and plenty more within a short drive. Would recommend this for a family or group wanting a relaxing break in a charming cottage.

Owners Direct Farmhouse review, May 2017

Wonderful, very relaxing, beautiful location

Wonderful, very relaxing, beautiful location, very well equipped comfortable cottage.
We had a wonderful week, the cottage is in a wonderful location overlooking a small pond and woodland garden full of wild life. the location is very quite and relaxing, the cottage is very well equipped and comfortable, the decking is a great place to watch the sunset and relax with a glass of wine. a lovely pub is only a 30 min walk away and the food is good value and excellent quality. We look forwards to returning asap.
Owners Direct Willow Cottage review, May 2019

A truly magical weekend

Booked very last minute in the need for a digital detox and unwind. Initially I was a little dubious taking our 8 month old to a glamping experience (esp. as the hut has no reviews yet etc) but as soon as I started communicating with Tina my mind was put to rest. It was a truly magical weekend. The sun helped (as always) but the hut itself is of an incredible standard, so comfortable, amazing views, peaceful energy and all the mod cons you could ever need. Being with baby meant we needed a certain level of comfort and wow, we certainly got that. We enjoyed a visit to Framingham castle and the coast isn’t too far but actually we just wanted to sit by the hut, take in the countryside air and beautiful views and enjoy some peace and quiet. Tina has really created something special here and couldn’t be more helpful in answering all my questions (and posting back my forgotten baby towel)! This will be an annual holiday for me and my family and we feel very grateful to have been the ones to christen this hut. Thank you Tina

Air B&B Shepherd Hut guest review, May 2017

Enjoyed having breakfast on the decking

Tina and Chris, thank you for a lovely stay in your cottage, it has been lovely, everything thought of that you could need and thank you for all the flowers and other goodies. Enjoyed having breakfast on the decking watching the moor hens and drinks in the evening. Wish you all the best for the future with this wonderful cottage. Hope to return soon.

Visitor book comment, Willow Cottage, May 2017

Beautiful setting

We spent a week here on the 23rd April 2017. This new to the market property is a little gem! Although compact it has every thing required to make your stay comfortable. Tina and Chris were there to welcome us and show us around and asked to let them know if we required anything else ,a very nice couple who have put a lot of time into this conversion . The outlook over the pond surrounded by Willow and Ash trees is lovely and although the weather could have been kinder we had two beautiful sunsets to watch from the decking (or the settee inside) If it is peace and quiet you are after you cannot go wrong .I am sure the ducks moorhen and rabbits will keep you entertained as they did us . We highly reccommend this cottage and hope to return.

Charming farmhouse and garden

We were delighted to enjoy the charming farm house and garden. We think we might have left a few chocolate mini eggs somewhere in the grounds!

Visitor book comment, Farmhouse, Boundary Farm, April 2017

Amazing place

This is a very well equipped, comfortable and stylish place to stay in a tranquil location. The owners are friendly and on hand to provide useful information about the surrounding area. There is a very good pub which has fab food and atmosphere within walking distance. A truly great place to stay and we wouldn’t hesitate to highly recommend.

Our first guest feedback

Thank you for a lovely stay and for making us feel so welcome. Great places to explore: Sutton Hoo, Dunwich Heath, Southwold and Framlingham. We even played foot golf at Stonham Barns! The children loved playing on the swing and climbing the tree in the front garden.
