Barbara and Len were very welcoming, the upstairs studio was the perfect family room. We stayed one night for a 'family do' nearby, but could easily see someone staying longer to explore Suffolk. Although positioned just north of busy Ipswich, it feels very secluded and tranquil. The breakfast was very tasty, lots of home made jams, sausages and fresh eggs - what a treat!
The scenes out of the studio bedroom in the morning - old barns, sheds and fields, looked instantly familiar, having grown up in Suffolk myself and admired the Giles cartoons from an early age the whole experience brought those fabulously detailed illustrations to life. The bonus of sleeping in the same studio space where Giles once worked, was a little bit of special english heritage.
In the morning after breakfast we has a little walk around the land, with abundant natural wildlife and some farm animals, our 7 year old also got to enjoy the place too..
