We are in the middle of Suffolk countryside, surrounded by fields with amazing views, colourful sunrises & sunsets. There is a maze of footpath & permitted walks right on our door-step. Ideal for that quiet week-end. Spectacular thunderstorms sometimes occur as the cloud formations follow the river valleys. During these storms rain-bows appear. We've not yet found a pot of gold though! At night if the sky is cloudless you can see all the stars & spot the well-known constellations.
“A cosy, beautiful place to stay which feels like a true escape. The annex is very well designed, warm, spacious and spotlessly clean. The little farm is lovely with horses, chickens and Boudicca the dog! We felt so welcome, loved the extra touches like the fresh eggs and breakfast items. Would definitely return in future!”
Set in an area of outstanding natural beauty, Robin's Rest is an idyllic base for exploring the coastline and forests of Suffolk. Only 15 minutes from Southwold, Walberswick and Dunwich and 5 minutes from the charming market town of Halesworth with its excellent range of pubs and restaurants. Totally private and self-contained, with a verandah, dog-friendly garden and parking. Great for romantic breaks or family holidays. Please message with any questions - Sarah :)
“We have just returned after 4 nights at Robin's Rest and I have to say this was the best stay we ever had! We have had a few! But this little bungalow was perfect for us in every way, we took our small dog and there was a wonderful fully fenced off garden with a decking and enough grass for her to run around and sniff the 'sniffs' with particular mention to the rabbit sniffs that she got very excited about! She particularly enjoyed sitting on the decking on 'guard' to make sure none of those pesky hoppers got in to the garden! Sarah had provided pooh bags, treats, even food, blankets and throws for the sofas and even a special outside bin for the pooh bags. The kitchen was great very self contained with lovely clean units and lots of work space, I particularly liked the recycling boxes with clear instructions of how to use them. There was so much information in the folder that Sarah had put together, if you wanted to see it, do it, find it, it was in that folder and everything that wasn't, was clearly labelled and/or explained. There was lots of cupboard space, 2 wardrobes with a deep shelf each and plenty of room for a shoes, bags and cases, there were also 2 bedside cabinets with 3 drawers each, which was great for underwear and make up and things. The bed was a king size which I was very pleased about, I don't like small beds! There was a large shower with plenty of hot water and complimentary and very good quality toiletries, I never normally use them as they tend to be cheap and sometimes nasty, but these were Tresemme and Soap and Glory, the toilet paper was also a good quality tissue. There were also complimentary teas, coffees and sugar, which I was very pleased to find as I had forgotten my sweeteners only to find a jar with lots in! Everywhere was absolutely spotless, so very clean, compact and well organised. I would definitely recommend Sarah's place, we will definitely visit again.”
Our small 18th century barn is the converted village forge and is perfect for any time of the year - a cosy winter break by the wood burner or summer outdoors in the private cottage garden. We're in a forgotten part of Suffolk known as The Saints, in the heart of beautiful walking and cycling country, yet only 15 miles from Suffolk's best beaches. The barn shows it's heritage with beams, shutters, and vaulted ceilings, yet has a modern open plan layout.
“Lovely converted forge with everything you could need for a little rural break. Jen is very helpful and all the info you need is provided. Check in was really straight forward with a key safe. Cute little village, you do need a car to get around. Would definitely recommend a trip to Southwold. If you want to get away from it all this is a lovely spot. Great log burner too!”
