This was a well equipped and clean property. We stayed here with our dog to get away from the fireworks on new years eve. The garden was at the front of the property and was apart of a shared driveway with the owners. As long as the gate to the road was closed, you could let you dog off its leash. This was not so easy in the dark. Maybe section offRead more a smaller area outside cottage entrance to make it more private ? Its location was great to access Suffolk / Norfolk attractions.
