“Central to Suffolk Coast and Bury”
Reviewed 16 July 2019 for a stay in June 2019

Sue was very helpful and responsive both before and during our stay, and we appreciated having Paypal as an option as it avoided dealing with our local bank and currency transfers. She also arranged for some very nice sunny and hot weather for the 2 weeks , we brought our NW US raingear which helped appease the rain gods.

The mattresses at the cottage are great, I found them very comfortable and the 3 bathrooms are well equipped and just right, wonderful hot water too . The clothes washer was easy to use compared to some we have encountered in the UK, we used the clothes rack instead of the dryer just as we do at home.
The cottage was originally built about 1562 and people were shorter then, if you are of average UK/US height you should not have a problem. Also some floors are not as flat as you would have in today’s modern house, unless you use a walking cane you should not have problem. I wore my baseball cap inside as a reminder as I’m 6’ 4” or 193cm, less some shrinkage. At any rate do your due diligence and ask Sue about any concerns. By the way the small bedroom is indeed small, you may have to put your luggage on the landing outside.

Following are a couple of snapshots from our enjoyable trip to Suffolk which I thought you might like..

On July 4th we had a barbecue for 12 in the Sheep Cottage garden and everyone had a garden chair and a shady spot -it was a sunny hot day. We purchased the large Portobello mushrooms, 2 types of sausage, chicken and some pies from Creasy’s butcher shop a short walk along “The Causeway” which runs parallel to the main street, and gets you away from the traffic. Creasey’s is a real old style butchers shop. We purchased the last bag of ”real charcoal” from the PO/ Shop.

Bury St Edmunds or “Bury” as my Dad always called it, is well worth a visit. Relatives gave us a Saturday Market day walking tour starting in Ram Meadow Car park IP33 1XT at 9.30 am. It's £2.30 to park all day and a good place to meet if you have several cars. Get there early it fills up fast. The tour went something like this:
See the Abbey Ruins, gardens, and Abbey Walls, then go to the Cathedral. Then go to the market, look at the stalls, have an Indian meal -get a plastic top for the container so you can eat the rest at home for dinner. It’s a lot of food. Watch the people walk by while you sit and eat lunch. Next go to the bird house and ice cream? and the rest of the gardens. Last the tiny Nutshell pub, have a beer or just have a quick peek inside. Back to the pay per park, and home. Can easily be a half day plus the drive to/from Sheep Cottage about 1hr

“Wonderful and relaxed place to stay”
Reviewed 26 April 2019 for a stay in April 2019

The cottage was a delight to stay in. Its stylishly decorated, spacious and very comfortable with a pretty back garden and a lovely pond. The cottage is in a perfect location on the edge of the village within easy walking distance of local shops, tea room and pub. It's a great base for exploring the countryside, stunning beaches and also the vineyards near by. Sue was a great host - very welcoming, attentive and helpful. We definitely plan to visit again.

“A wonderful cottage, with beautiful country garden”
Reviewed 15 August 2018 for a stay in July 2018

We stayed at White Sheep Cottage in July and had a wonderful time. The cottage is so pretty, and wonderful to have all the old features inside. The kitchen was really well equipped, and the beds were really comfy! The garden was so pretty. The cottage is in a great spot for exploring the area, and its lovely to have the pub and some shops within walking distance as well.

Returned in May for another stay at this beautiful cottage. It is well appointed and has plenty of characterful indoor and outdoor space for entertaining. Ideally located for the Suffolk coastal villages.
