“Perfect Suffolk Cottage ideally situated for visiting Southwold Aldeburgh etc”
Reviewed 28 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We absolutely fell in love with White Sheep Cottage even before we walked through the front door....Really thoughtfully furnished and equipped, and everywhere you turned, another sheep-related object appeared. Even the Pecorino wine left to welcome us had a sheep on the label...We got very excited when we looked round the beautiful garden and found two black sheep made of beads hanging out under the apple tree. We arrived in warm sunshine and took a stroll down to the White Horse at Sibton for an al fresco pint of the local beer, Adnams (of Southwold), passing a peacock strolling along ....

Brunch in the garden on our first morning (sampling bacon from the famous local deli, Emmetts) in hot sunshine, watching butterflies and enjoying the lavender, we really felt
we'd lucked out finding this place. We had a week of very mixed weather, which meant we could swim and sunbathe at Southwold and Walberswick, and also explore and walk along some wild stretches of shore. (Dunwich Heath). Went across to Orford Ness and had a brilliant walk and voyage of discovery...There are so many places of interest within a 20 minute drive that it really is perfectly situated.

When it poured with rain, the place felt so cosy we were happy to light the candles in the amazing fireplace and play a board game (a choice supplied by Sue, the helpful owner).

The place is old, 16Century, but is equipped with all the 21st Century family needs, Wifi, DVD player, etc. Not to mention a huge selection of books and cuddly toys..

PERFECT IN EVERY WAY!! Thank you Sue for putting it together with such care and style.

“A Real Gem, Baaaa none :-)”
Reviewed 11 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed at White Sheep Cottage, a party of five consisting of 2yr old Grand daughter, Daughter, her partner, myself and hubby.
The pictures, which are good do not do this place justice. It was the perfect place to kick back, relax and indulge in some family time.
Everything you may need is here, in the kitchen, bathrooms, interesting books to read. We played dominos for the first time in years.
The beds are comfy as are the sofas. You will not be short of a cushion or two, snuggly blankets to cuddly up under if it turns a bit nippy.
Peasenhall village is small but the shop keepers were friendly and you wont starve if you cant be bothered to travel further a field. It's a pleasant walk the the Sibton White Horse pub if you get bored sitting in the beautiful garden drinking wine.
We enjoyed visiting Aldeborgh and Southwold.
If you are thinking of staying anywhere in the vicinity I'd highly recommend White Sheep Cottage.
Sue thank you for making this such an easy transaction you were a joy to deal with and I do hope that I'll be back sooner rather than later.

“Fabulous!”
Reviewed 5 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

I stayed here in February this year and it was just fabulous. The cottage is beautifully finished to a high specification and has a lovely, cosy, warm feeling to it. The beds are extremely comfortable, I felt so refreshed after just one night! The surrounding village is very tranquil with exceptional pubs nearby. I couldn't recommend it highly enough, even for just a short getaway.

“EXPECTATIONS MATCHED”
Reviewed 30 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

If you are looking for a tranquil and comfortable Suffolk country cottage with period detail at the end of a quiet village with a great "living" kitchen and an attractive pub twenty minutes walk away, look no further.
The village has two shops of outstanding quality, the butchers and the the ham smokers (Emmetts Deli with great cafe and coffee), both nationally known, and the cottage is well placed for visiting nearby inland coastal villages and towns with walking possibilities in abundance. I don’t do TripAdvisor entries, so it is a credit to the house, that I write this.

“We love sheep”
Reviewed 13 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Several visits in the bag and here we are again at the gorgeous White sheep cottage!
The cottage is an absolute delight and we left feeling refreshed and relaxed after a couple of wonderful nights sleep in the most comfortable bed.
Since our last visits there is lovely new furniture and soft furnishings in the sitting room and lots of cute new stuff in the kitchen which may I add is extremely well equipped.
The cottage is kept immaculately clean.
We were lucky to enjoy some lovely Autumn sunshine and the gardens were an absolute pleasure to explore.
We will be back, we love Sheep :-)
