We booked our stay as a base for our holiday and so that our visiting relatives had somewhere to stay with us. The cottage was perfect. Beds were amazingly comfy. It was a traditional, beautiful, idyllic cottage and we can't recommend it more. It had...More

The situation was very peaceful and quiet. Even bats flitting about in the evening. It was a little difficult to find using the sat nav, but Suzanne acknowledged this and is looking into amending her directions to suit better.

About the neighbourhood
Opportunities abound for days out in and around north Suffolk. Quite aside from the wonderful walks in rolling countryside there are many sites of historic or architectural interest, for example Grimes Graves, a neolithic mining site, Amongst places well worth a visit is Kentwell Hall at Long Melford (26 miles), where Tudor life is re-enacted for you, allowing you to become a part of a Tudor community for a day. The Museum of East Anglian Daily Life nearby Stowmarket provides an insight into the old East Anglia and includes opportunities to experience steam power, see rare breed farm animals and traditional country crafts. English Heritage maintain and open to the public both Framlingham Castle (a 12th century fortress, once the home of Mary Tudor) and Orford Castle (one of England&#39... more
Getting around
There is a limited bus service from Old Newton to Stowmarket. If you want to get around for sightseeing then your own transport is needed. There is a great deal you can do by bicycle, but a car is preferable.

Enterprise Car Hire at Bury St. Edmunds, at the time of writing, will deliver your car to the cottage and pick it up when you have finished with it.

There is a 'Bike and Go' service from Stowmarket Railway Station. We have not used this ourselves and would suggest you look at their web site.

Stowmarket Railway Station is about 4 kms with trains direct to London Liverpool St. and Cambridge. Taxi cost from Pond Cottage to the station is, at the time of writing, about £8.
