Guest reviews

  • We enjoyed staying at the cottage, it has some lovely old features but with modern facilities, which makes it really comfortable. We brought our bikes and were able to store them in a secure shed. Bramfield is a great base for exploring this part of Suffolk. The Queens Head is a lovely pub, walking distance away - torch provided in the cottage, which you need as it's very dark at night - and makes the cottage back garden excellent for star gazing!
