“A cosy home from home”
Reviewed 5 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Had an excellent two night stay at souters. Owner is so welcoming and the cottage is extremely well equipped. It is located in a quiet spot however the a12 is within easy reach. With the weather being warm we didn't get to use the wood burner which was a shame. We had our dog with us and can recommend the swan pub/restaurant just over a mile away as a friendly pub with great food and beer that welcome dogs. Souters is highly recommended

“Peaceful and very relaxing time at Souters”
Reviewed 5 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This is our second stay at Souters and it was just as lovely as the first time. We will be back in Feb so we can use the wood burner. Cath and Nick were really welcoming. The milk they left in the fridge was much appreciated and so were the gorgeous chocolate biscuits and flowers. We just love coming here.

“Beautiful setting and wonderful welcome”
Reviewed 30 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

What a lovely long weekend we spent at Souters! The cottage is located down a hidden-away track amongst the trees: totally private with a lovely view across the gentle Suffolk hills. Nick and Cath made us feel most welcome with little pots of flowers and the most scrumptious of home-baked cakes (I found this late on the first night and couldn't resist a wedge!). The cottage itself has everything you need, plus bags of character, the most stylish woodburner, comfy chairs and a lovely bathroom. It's so quiet at night and a totally restful, tranquil place to spend time: we'll certainly be back!

“Stunning, friendly, relaxing and beautiful”
Reviewed 20 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Superb accommodation. Nick and Cath did everything that they could to make our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as it could be. The fresh home made scones and jam on arrival were delicious, with the fresh flowers making the place feel like home from the offset.
Whilst there, we wanted for nothing. The accommodation has been brilliantly thought out. Whether your an outdoors or indoors person - this place is perfect.
The local walks are beautiful, as are the local pubs, which are all dog friendly.
We used Gribbles for two night for our friends to visit, and they could not have been more pleased. They loved it. And we are already planning our next visit
We can not recommend this place enough.
Our dog will never forgive us if we don't go back.

“One of the best cottages we have been to.”
Reviewed 14 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Just returned from a week at Souters weather was great, the amenities are all their even a field to run the dog first thing in the morning and last-thing at night. The accommodation was very clean and modern and the little extras to start your holiday, milk, coffee and cake, flowers on the table and the odds and sods to assist with cooking. The cottage is well suited to see all the historic villages, with plenty of eatery's some allow dogs into the dining area especially some of the smaller exquisite coffee shops. Only a short distance to a major trunk road but out in the country. The only downside was a week was not long enough.
