Where do I start. So my amazing friends and family booked this for my hen do and it was above and beyond what I would ever have expected. Speechless from when I arrived to when I left. The rooms where like a 5* plus hotel and we have everything we needed and more. The hosts left us alone and they didn't batter an eye lid with the noise/carnage. A beautiful setting and the pub was a small walk away. I couldn't have asked for more. Thank you so much for making my hen do truly amazing. I will defo be back xx

A family Christmas, meeting with son, daughters, their partners and grandchildren , our wonderful "patchwork" family able to spend this special time together. The accommodation had everything you could want and more, the children absolutely loved the hot tub, they enjoyed table tennis and the freedom that this property provides. As for the grounds well, if the weather had been different we would have spent a lot more time outside; a lake & stream, woodland walk, swans, peacocks and deer, superb. This property needs to be seen to appreciate it, we would not hesitate to recommend it.

Suffolk Retreats despite being a touch remote has a lot to offer - Julie and Brian have put a lot of thought into making a great space to spend time with Friends, even on a very wet weekend in November! Quick on email, well organised and welcoming, Thank you!

We very much enjoyed our stay. The grounds are beautiful and the location is stunning. The house has every you would need. The games room and hot tub area are great. The disco lights give it a real party vibe. This is the first self catering house I have stayed in which provides the basics you need which is an extra bonus. The pictures do not do it justice. Julie was a available to answers all my questions before our trip and Brian was on hand during our stay fo answer any questions.

We had a cracking time! We booked the granary for my mother in laws 50th Birthday and we couldn’t have chosen a better place. There just isn’t a single thing that wasn’t thought about we had everything we needed from the kitchen to the games in the playroom to the hairdryer in the bedroom it was just brilliant! Th property is Very well set out and ideal for family gatherings! We are super glad we booked the hot tub for usage over our stay it just put the icing on top of the cake! Unfortunately Christmas and New Years are already booked as we would have booked straight away! Super clean, perfect set up just amazing if I could rate 11 out of 10 I would!

Spent 4 days in the 2 man 🛖 yurt we found it to be comfortable and clean . Wood burner if it got chilly with wood on site. Shower and toilet block across the way we’re clean with good supply of hot water . We felt very relaxed sitting by our yurt and the water where the black swans would come to say hello . There were some other animals to be seen a peacock some goats plenty of birds and the occasional squirrel. Plenty of food to be had near by at public houses the plough very close good food and great views all in all a great short break

An excellent location if you’re looking to get away to the countryside. The grounds are beautiful and well kept with animals on site including a peacock, ponies and deer. Yurts were very clean and contained lots of useful crockery. We made good use of the BBQs. Lounge area also very nice with plenty of games to play too. Hot tub was very relaxing. Shower block was very clean however may have been easier for our large party if there were a couple more showers. Julie was very quick to reply to emails throughout and always provided clear answers to questions and requests. All in all an excellent visit and would really recommend.

The Grounds of Suffolk Retreat are amazing ideal for a family get together we had the use of the barn and cottage both which accommodate all our needs. Brian was on hand to help when required and nothing was to much trouble for him. The family loved seeing and feeding the deers, horse, the black swans, peacock and little moorhen. I would recommend this stay for anyone who wants a nice family getaway plenty to do with all the games available and if you want to go out exploring then there are some nice towns and villages very near by. Thank you Julie and Brian for all your help and I am so glad we were able to visit even if it was in June not March due to Covid.

Glamping at Suffolk Retreats was absolutely fantastic! The yurts and the communal areas were spot on clean and fully equipped with everything one may need for a glamping experience. The outdoor hot tab was amazing, surrounded by green fields, overlooking the pond and a good fit for 6 people. The farm around the glamping site was full of animals and vast enough to have a lovely walk in the fields. We absolutely loved our BBQs at sunset and all the games in the game room. We had an amazing time and we would repeat it over and over again! If I can give a suggestion, it would work better if there was a recycling area for the rubbish.
