This lovely annexe is situated next to the stables within the grounds of the owner's B&B within a private estate, in Hadleigh, and sleeps six people in three bedrooms.

Gardener's Cottage at Holbecks House is a lovely annexe to the stables in the grounds of the owner's B&B in Hadleigh. With three bedrooms, a double and two connected twin rooms, it sleeps six comfortably. There is also a shower room, kitchen, utility and sitting room with woodburner. Outside there is off road parking, a 'secret' garden with furniture, and shared access to the estate's extensive grounds. Gardener's Cottage is a lovely base for exploring this vast area.


RECENT CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Ideal country retreat on the outskirts of a town that is cosy and truly pet friendly
This is our third family holiday at Gardener's Cottage, In tow are three teenagers aged 12 to 18 ( a 12 year old really should be considered a teenager) and an exuberant working cocker spaniel. The location is great for long country walks straight out of the backdoor with an off-lead dog, no need to add driving to the mix. The village/town has all things necessary for a family holiday, large Morrissons, an Adnams shop, a second hand book shop, decent pubs and several fish and chip shops. Everything is in walking distance, except it is probably a good idea to drive to the supermarket. Inside, the cottage is pretty much as it was two years ago,very clean, cosy. and well equipped. I have seen other reviews saying the cottage is cold, we have found that the trick to keeping it at the right temperature (both heating and cooling) is the careful management of which internal doors are opened and closed. The key to a warm upstairs is leaving the kitchen door leading to the stairs open. We particularly like the fact that the internal latch doors can also be used to isolate specific areas of the house so that we can contain the dog after a muddy walk. He cannot open them with his nose like he does to the doors at home. Outside at night it is very quiet, except for the owls and very dark. This, combined with comfy beds and a nice glass of wine, means a decent night's sleep. A large bath would be a great addition, but it is difficult to see where this could be located in the current layout. Somewhere to hang smart clothes is also needed As our holiday draws to a close we are still extremely happy with what this place offers and will no doubt return again.

Terrible dirty place, and very expensive.
This December 2018 I am reminded of the terrible stay we had last Xmas at Gardeners cottage . I had booked this cottage as a treat. However it was cold, dirty and stank of dogs. My sister got an allergy from the dog hair and we both got bad colds which lasted a month after our stay. Had we not had a visitor that we had not seen for 20 years,over on Xmas day, we would have left after one day. As it was we left 2 days early. On the only plus side the beds were very comfortable and the owner provided Ecover products as we requested. This property was very expensive and I warn you - the owner puts different prices on different websites. We asked for a refund of the difference we found and provided evidence of the differing price structure and rates but the owner refused. The most miserable Xmas I've ever had.

Mrs
My husband, myself and our dog have just had a super weeks stay in the Gardeners Cottage on the Holbeck Estate in Hadleigh. The cottage is a super place with everything you could possibly need from a washer/ dryer, freezer, fridge, dish washer, log burner etc etc It's very clean and comfortable with plenty of space. The cottage is set in it own grounds with lots of open fields and in a very quiet and peaceful location. On arrival we had been left fresh milk, butter, bread and eggs which we thought was a lovely touch as we were ready for a drink after after our five hour journey. We were left contact telephone numbers in case there was anything we wanted. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to return again in the future

Ideal setting, very homely accomodation
The location of this cottage is amazing, set in acres of beautiful countryside. Hadleigh is within easy walking distance and has a great Friday market. Take a torch if walking at night! Our family consisted of 2 grandparents, 2 parents, 2 children aged 4 and 6 and 2 small dogs. The cottage was very well equipped and had an outhouse and private garden with a BBQ. The bedrooms were were cosy and the beds very comfortable. Downstairs was spacious and had everything you needed and a woodburning stove for chilly evenings. Our host Mr Coysh was very helpful in meeting our needs. A wealth of things to do for families of all ages, beaches, crabbing, Jimmy's farm, swimming pool all very close though you would need a car.

A second visit - as good as we remembered too
Having stayed in the depth of winter, we came back in the height of summer. This time we were able to appreciate the gardens a bit more. Very quiet, very private, decent outdoor furniture and a barbecue - although it did take us about five days to locate the switches for the outdoor lights. Gardener's Cottage is clearly a dog friendly, family let and while I agree it isn't in pristine condition, neither is our own home. We found everything we wanted for a week long stay, the kitchen is well equipped, the bed linen clean, the cottage inviting. A real plus for us is a large utility room just off the kitchen diner. Our dog is crated at night and this space is ideal for his crate which can be left up and ready for bedtime. The owners are on site but far enough away in 'the big house' to be completely unobtrusive. They checked that we had everything we needed shortly after we arrived and then left us alone. It can be intimidating when the owners of a rental property are close by, but not so here. We are discussing the possibility of a third visit.
