Gem of a cottage
Great cosy cottage with everything you'll need included. Owners friendly and really helpful in suggesting places to go. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
So glad that you had such a nice stay. Good luck with the bird watching and thank you for being such thoughtful guests.
Short Family Break Feb 2020
Lovely cottage in a stunning location (even in a wet and windy February). Cottage had everything we could need for our stay and Eileen and her husband were happy to answer any questions we had. Would definitely look to book next time we're in the area.
Superb place for relaxing weekend away
We really enjoyed our stay, owner was very friendly and welcoming, the cottage was clean and very spacious, it has everything you require for the stay. We had a lovely time there, enjoyed a walk in local forest. We are going to come back and definitely recommend to others.
Amazing secret hideaway.
Amazing little bit of peace in a beautiful setting. The cottage (and the host) was warm and welcoming. A well equipped kitchen with everything you could want. The beds are comfortable and warm. The log burner gives you a warm glow. Perfect getaway for a couple or a family. Phone signal minimal in the area but wifi sorted that. The hall and grounds are amazing and such a romantic view from the cottage. The walled garden gives you privacy and peace of mind for small children and our furry children.
We would definitely stay again.
Nice people great location best equiped weve had
Stansted and Norwich are our nearest airports. Both are approx. a one hour drive. West Stow is about 1hour 30 mins from Harwich. The closest station is Bury St Edmunds which is 20mins by car. A car is recommended though there are bus services from nearby villages to Bury
It is 5 miles to Bury St Edmunds, 16 miles to Newmarket, 17miles to Lavenham, 30 miles to Cambridge, and 59 miles to Aldeburgh and Southwold.
We are lucky in having several good pubs and nice places to eat near to West Stow such as The Cadogan at Ingham and the Organic café at Fornham All Saints. The well know Anglo-Saxon village is a short walk away while trout fishing is available at the bottom of the drive. Go Ape which has an amazing tree top walkways is a short drive as is Centre Parcs at Elvedon, lovely for a spa! There is also a lovely garden Fuller's Mill in the village. Bury St Edmunds has excellent shops, restaurants and pubs as well as two cinemas, the Arena which hosts a wide variety of musical events and a lovely Regency theatre.
About Eileen Gilbert
Although Gardener's Cottage is in the garden of our home West Stow Hall it is totally private. We will not be breathing down your neck but are on hand if any questions or problems arise. I run the Hall as a Wolsey Lodge B&B while my husband works in London. We love the history and beauty of the Hall and Suffolk in general and enjoy seeing others discover how lovely this part of the world is and how much there is do. Our dog, Monty, a border coliie cross is great. Very friendly and happy to accompany everyone every where. He is great when taken for walks as very obedient and - so far- has always returned when called! New hens will be arriving shortly and we are happy for children to help with the egg collecting while there is apple picking in the autumn!
