About sarah beesley

I live in Hertfordshire, England with my husband and two children. The cottage was refurbished as our second home and, as such, is fitted to an excellent standard. We bought the cottage after being frequent visitors to Eye for many years and used to spend much of our spare time there. My husband and I both work together in our family run business and sadly find that we have less and less spare time with the demands of our family and expanding business, so we've decided to let our cottage for others to enjoy it.

Why sarah beesley chose Suffolk

We've always loved Eye since our very first visit some twenty years back and it will always have a place deep in our hearts. We felt so at home in Suffolk that we even chose to get married in Eye some twelve years ago (despite all of our family and friends living in London and Herts). It's a fantastic base for exploring East Anglia and there are so very many interesting places to visit locally and further afield.

Guestbook comments from the owner

An extremely comfortable and very well equipped cottage. It has the feel of someone's home rather than the minimal equipment often found in holiday rentals. Plenty of space for 2 people. We used it as a base for a week's walking holiday in Suffolk/Norfolk. Although in Suffolk it is close to the border with Norfolk so possible to visit both counties. The house is close to local shops and the village pub is only a couple of minutes walk away. We ate there twice and found it welcoming with excellent pub food. A side table in the sitting room would be helpful.

Such a lovely cottage

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this cottage. The cottage is well equipped with everything you might need during your stay. The rooms are cosy but modern making for a comfortable stay. We stayed with our two boys aged 6 and 9 and they loved sharing a room for the weekend. Great location with a lovely pub just up the road. Very easy booking and communication with Sarah before and after our stay was great. Would definitely recommend to family and friends. No outside space, but that didn't bother us as we were out and about most of the time.

Immaculate cottage in a beautiful little village

  • 5 of 5

Wow - this has to be the most immaculately clean cottage ever - everything was perfect from the moment we opened the door. Being over 6 foot tall I am somewhat suspect at some cottages but didn't need to worry with Orange Grove cottage - plenty of ceiling space and good width staircase, in this deceptively large cottage. Th lounge had a very comfortable couch, greta for relaxing, plenty of room around the spacious dining table, and the kitchen was a delight, large range and plenty of space, including a very large fridge. Upstairs was two generous bedrooms and a good size bathroom. Only issue was having to get into bath to have a shower with a bad back, but this a minor issue.

Eye itself is a lovely quaint village with some lovely little shops, plenty to choose from for meals. It also is a great place from which to explore Norfolk and the surrounding areas. The owners also provide plenty of suggestions of where to go, especially those with kids.

Overall this was definitely one of the best cottages we have ever stayed at, and we will definitely try to get back here sometime in the future. If considering a place in Norfolk, this is one cottage well worth considering!

Relaxing in Eye

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was in a lovely location in the village, very peaceful and relaxing. It was easy to get out and about the local area. Parking on the street is a little difficult but there is a public car park very close to the cottage. The cottage itself was exactly as it was advertised and was a welcome place to come home to at the end of day. The only disappointment was there is no outside space to enjoy. The local public house cuisine and atmosphere was excellent. We would recommend you visiting this cottage and there is plenty to see and do in the local area.

Well equipped, well looked after, well situated

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was every bit as good as it sounded. Equipped and maintained to a high standard and both comfortable and warm. Spotlessly clean which made it easy to keep clean. Loved being able to decide what we wanted for breakfast and to nip to the bakery (superb), butchers (excellent) and the coop (well its a coop with friendly staff) all within a 5 minute round trip. Local Queens Head pub provide very good food, friendly service. Need to book as early as you can for Sunday lunch as they get busy. Loads of scope for local travel but the Thornham walks and a good wander by the Pinnings or Abbey House can provide a healthy burst of fresh air on your doorstep. We loved our stay (visiting our daughter nearby) and the cottage provided the perfect venue. Would thoroughly recommend this for a relaxing stay.

Cosy cottage

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful, cosy cottage in the heart of Eye. Great location to explore Eye Castle and Church.

Cottage was very clean and comfortable...fully equipped kitchen.

Sarah was on hand to answer any questions, and text us to make sure everything was ok with cottage.

Day trip to Aldeburgh recommended (about a 45 minute drive)...best fish and chips I've had in a long time!
