“My family stayed for 9 days at Sian’s and Alistair’s perfectly located (well, for us) ‘quintessential ‘ English country family home. We just loved our time at their cottage in the country side, finding the location perfect for relaxing and day outings. Sian and Alistair were great to communicate with and their spacious, converted modern cottage was more than we expected. It is very interesting set out, extremely comfortable with great facilities and lots of rooms. We were able to completely relax and enjoy our English countryside experience. Our little miss 4 year old still says how she loved her new English home I have to say, I felt the same and feel, for my family and myself, our non simultaneous exchange worked out better than we could have wished for. ”

“Sian and Alistair's country property is a great home for a very peaceful and relaxing getaway. Spacious, comfortable, very well equipped and a large garden / outdoor area complete with playground make it ideal for families. Looking after the guinea pigs and cat was a breeze. The location means you need a car to get any supplies or for exploring the wider Norfolk. Definitely recommend this exchange. Derek”
Where is it?
We live on a very quiet country lane in a small village on the Norfolk, Suffolk border. Our house is ideally situated, surrounded by gently rolling countryside with many walks and beautiful scenery.
A short drive will take you to one of the close by market towns of Harleston or Bungay with a selection of shops, cafes and restaurants. The larger town of Beccles is within 20 mins and we are only half an hour south of Norwich, a vibrant city with a good variety of shops, plus cinemas, theatre, cafes, restaurants.
The coast is only 35 mins away with the popular towns of Southwold, Aldeburgh and Walberswick and the nature reserves at Dunwich all close by. We are also only 1 hour 15 mins drive from the north Norfolk coast.
There are also a number of nearby family tourist attractions such as Bewilderwood, Banham Zoo, Redwings horse sanctuary all an easy drive away.
