First Class

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for three weeks in Mike and Niki's lovely apartment. We were made very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The photographs show how clean and modern the property is.Everything was in first class order and we were extremely comfortable.There is ample parking with easy access to the beautiful surrounding countryside. Highly recommended. We would go again.

Excellent Accommodation.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have just spent a month in this delightful retreat on the fringes of the historical town of Hadleigh.

Mike and Nikki have provided one of the most well appointed apartments we have ever stayed in, it has everything you could possibly need and more.

It is situated in a very quiet area and is secure and private.

We highly recommend it and hope to be staying there again later this year..

Convenient, Relaxing, Enjoyable!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this apartment for the convenience of exploring the English countryside and London. I am so happy we did. The owners were wonderful and made our stay very enjoyable. Mike and Niki helped us by providing directions to the nearest Tube Station, the grocery store, and they also provided advice on the local restaurants. They even provided us with some food and tea for our first late night arrival. We are truly grateful for their hospitality.

The apartment was absolutely perfect for the three of us. It was very clean and inviting with a full service kitchen, one bedroom and a pullout bed in the living area. We had everything we needed for an eight day stay including the peace and quiet of country living.

This was a perfect accommodation that I would definitely recommend to others.

Perfect for the weekend

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was just perfect for a weekend away with 3 girls. It has everything we needed and it is clean, fresh and modern. The owner was very helpful and even though it is attached to their property we had all the privacy we needed. Thanks

Hadleigh is a delightful medieval wool town in the heart of the south Suffolk countryside readily accessible from the A12 and a fast train service to London Liverpool Street.

There are several local places of interest and a popular destination for people interested in US military bases.

Hadleigh is in the heart of John Constable country with Flatford Mill and Dedham Vale only a few miles from the apartment.

The name Hadleigh is believed to have originally come from the Norse Haethlega (a heath-covered place), though the area was inhabited far further back than this. The remains of a 1st century Roman villa can be found to the east of the present town, and there is evidence of a 5th century pagan Saxon occupation in the area around George Street.

Gainsborough, Turner , Constable and Morris have all painted St Marys Church in the town centre.

Raydon Airfield was home to a US fighter squadron in the Second World War (just a few miles).
