I love White Sheep Cottage and can't wait to return (i've just booked for my third visit). Peasenhall is a quiet village, but so accessible for a shortish drive to coastal resorts , NT reserves, walks - each day a new place to visit! I know we'll discover new places this year. Our stay felt like a true balm after so many months at home (2020)The sun shone on our plans and on the beautiful garden. Memory highlights include strolling to the local gastropub for superb al fresco meals, meeting the local peacock en route, (a relief to find him still going after five years), paddling at Southwold, sitting on the beach at Aldeburgh lunching on fresh crab salad, not to mention sundowners in the sunny garden and ,on the warm evenings, digestifs in the moonlight. Sue is such a thoughtful host, it feels like she's thought of any- and everything you might need in any weather to keep guests of all ages happy.
Looking forward to returning to White Sheep again this summer after a fabulous stay during October half term when we’ll be able to see the garden in full bloom and even more spectacular.
The cottage is really beautiful and oozes character with all of its open beams and lime plastered walls balanced with so many stylish and personal touches that make you feel at home. The kitchen is large, well equipped with plenty of space to sit and chat before spreading out into the dining room and sprawling on the sitting room sofas. Comfortable beds and spacious hot showers. Every detail on point.
The weather was warm and at every opportunity the patio doors were opened and we thoroughly enjoyed sitting out in this magical garden.
We had a fabulous time walking through the nearby countryside as well as trips to the coast and estuaries; not to mention sampling the local pubs.
Thank you Sue - this is a very special place and a rare find. We shall be back often.
White Sheep is a beautiful cottage, over 400 years old, in a pretty village called Peasenhall and ideally situated for visiting the beautiful Suffolk coastline and country walks.
We especially love the garden which attracts butterflies and bees, a perfect backdrop to outdoor dining and relaxing. So lovely to have outdoor space. The house is thoughtfully stocked with absolutely everything you need from kitchen utensils to a wonderful selection of reading materials that cover the local area well. Sue has written a very useful manual to help direct you to local amenities. There's an abundance of excellent local pubs serving up fantastic food.
The bedrooms are lovely, with gorgeous views.
Peasenhall has an incredible deli 100 metres away and a butchers and post office down the road which is always useful when on holiday and peacocks just strolling down the street!
Highly recommend this wonderful place and Sue has been super friendly and very easy to communicate with.
We stayed in White Sheep Cottage for 3 nights over NYE.
The cottage itself is beautiful, over 400 years old which brings lovely features and quirks that might not be to everyone’s tastes but has real character.
The cottage is incredibly well appointed, we cooked in every night and couldn’t have thought of anything that the kitchen didn’t have. There are three social areas spread between the kitchen, dining room and living room which is very nice if a group of 6 wants to spread out a little bit. The living room is very comfortable with more than enough sofa room for 6 a digital TV and a range of books and board games. It is also at the far end from the adjoining cottage so there’s minimal noise transmission between the two.
The bedrooms and beds specifically are excellent. Top quality linens, comfortable mattresses and very nice bathrooms.
There’s a lovely garden that we didn’t get much use of but would be fantastic in the summer.
Sue has also written a very informative guest manual that’s very comprehensive and incredibly useful for exploring the wonderful Suffolk coastline.
Would highly recommend to anyone, but do keep in mind and don’t be surprised by sloped floors, short doorways etc. As would be expected in any 400+ year old cottage.
We had a really lovely time at White sheep cottage and will definitely be going back. It is a fantastic location for coastal walks and a great weekend in the countryside!
