Perfect break
Kingfisher Nook was idyllic to say the least! Spotlessly clean, and a lovely welcome from the owner which included a vase of flowers, some cookies, and a personal message in scrabble letters on the fridge! Everything you need is provided for. The views from the back of the cottage were superb. We were blessed with wonderful weather which made the whole week even more perfect. There are so many things to see and do in Suffolk - from beautiful beaches and quaint villages to stunning stately homes, and this cottage is fairly central to all. We would highly recommend this property.

A beautiful and peaceful bolt hole.
We had a great stay at Kingfisher Nook. The communication and directions from Alice were spot on. The location and views were beautiful and just what we needed to relax. Perfectly placed for the coast, Sutton Hoo, Woodbridge and Snape Maltings, with plenty of excellent places to eat and drink nearby. Alice was a great host and we appreciated the welcome gifts too. We would definitely return.

Lovely rural retreat
Very well maintained and comfortable accommodation with fabulous far reaching views from the sitting room and patio. Ideal for wildlife lovers we saw numerous types of birds including the nesting house martins plus rabbits and deer. There is a lovely walk to a very picturesque village and you are not too far from many attractions … we loved Bressingham gardens and Minsmere. An added bonus was being able to kayak on the river which runs at the bottom of the garden. A lovely peaceful break. Thankyou

Peaceful Haven
Kingfisher Nook is a peaceful haven away from the stresses of everyday life. Beautifully clean and tastefully decorated, attached to the owner’s home but maintaining privacy. Would of loved to sit on the patio and admire the view but unfortunately the weather didn’t allow for this, but patio doors in the sitting room allowed you to see the view from the comfort of an armchair. Owner “Alice” very welcoming and helpful. Centrally placed for touring East Anglia. Local pubs etc serving food most of the week but Monday evening the local pub’s kitchen is currently closed. Overall “a little gem in a rural setting”.
