Potash Farm Cottage, the place to stay

Last week we spent 3 nights at Potash Farm Cottage, and thank goodness for Sat navs, or else we would never have found it. It is set back about a mile off the road, in the middle of beautiful Suffolk countryside, with just a small sign denoting that Potash Farm is up the very rough and winding lane. For the benefit of anyone who doesn't live in the UK, Suffolk is in the East Anglian region of the UK. We arrived in the dark, but it’s probably a lot easier to find in the summertime.

Although tucked into the side of the farmhouse, it is very private and secluded, with hedges and a fence around the cottage, and a small neat garden, with a picnic table and chairs for use during the summer months. Looking across the garden there is a small lake, which is fenced in, but it adds such character to this very beautiful setting.

The cottage has a history

The cottage is approximately 150 years old, with wooden floors, and other period features including a wood burning stove. Not that we used it, the central heating is very efficient, and it was always warm and inviting when we arrived back.

The cottage would actually sleep 6 having one double bedded room, one with twin beds, and the sofa in the lounge also made another double bed. But there were just two of us, and the bed in the main bedroom was very comfortable.

There was a toilet and shower, which was very welcoming after a day out, situated next to the main bedroom. Although the kitchen was long and thin, it contained everything useful such as , fridge freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, an electric cooker and a microwave.

We received a warm welcome

Our genial hosts, who we only saw once, just after our arrival, which suited us nicely, provided milk, orange juice, tea, coffee and a fresh loaf to greet us on our arrival , which was all very welcome. There was also wifi connection for anyone who brings their lap top.

If I was very picky, the only complaint I would have is that the TV screen was very small, but the picture was good, and there was also a dvd player and a radio. I would have no hesitation in returning, maybe when the weather is warmer, then I could sit out in the conservatory and enjoy the country views.

I f you want a nice peaceful holiday with accomodation that allows you to take your dog at no extra charge, then this is an ideal place. The garden was secure, and large enought for Leo to explore, so a good time was had by us all.
