Idyllic Country Cottage
My family had a delightful 3 night stay in Gardeners Cottage in early August 2022. The cottage and grounds are maintained to a high standard and fit our family of four perfectly with plenty of space. The house is well-stocked with any kitchen appliance you need to cook a meal. The most wonderful thing about the cottage is its setting on the grounds of West Stow Hall. The grounds and Hall exterior are beautiful and really set the stage for our outings into the East Anglia countryside. Our family greatly enjoyed our time there and would gladly visit again.

Just lovely!
The cottage was perfect really, had everything you could need. It was cosy and welcoming, comfy beds-we all slept well! Amazing night sky the stars were so clear. The Hall is stunning! There is plenty to do in the near area, walks and the Saxon village, and not too far to travel to lots of other towns, villages, seaside. Ideal!

Lucky Gardener!
A delightful Gardener’s cottage in the grounds of the big house, simple but well appointed and charming. Perfect place for a quite break, with plenty of countryside walks around and only 20 mins car ride to the larger towns of Bury St Edmunds & Mildenhall. Living overseas but with family nearby, we will definitely be checking on availability for our next trip home.

Perfect getaway with the family and dog
Despite the wet weather we had a wonderful Christmas at the Gardner’s cottage West Stow - Eileen was so accommodating given the travel restrictions constantly changing before our stay. The cottage itself was comfortable and a real fire made for a Christmassy feel. Having the nearby forest was great for walks with the dog. Definitely one to come back to.
