Reviews

What a place!! Worth every penny, quite an eclectic place with lovely old things interspersed with some religious and some very modern things - we even loved the stuffed animals (as well as the plastic dinosaurs!). Lovely welcome pack - which even had a bowl and some treats for our guinea pig (Bob). The property had so much character and the rooms were all huge - bedrooms were very comfortable and we all slept very well. Loved the garden by the river (bit of a walk for an old fogey like me - but worth it!), we spent many hours sitting there listening to our cd's we played on the jukebox. Bianca, who is a chef, loved the kitchen and cooked every day. Wonderful memories with two special friends, we didn't want to come home! Ms Potter, you did us proud, Thank you! Andrea, Melanie, Bianca & Bob.

Miss Andrea J,

An amazing house & garden right on the river. All amenities close by. Location is perfect.

Mr Marc A,

Butterfield House is a great place, in a great location. Beccles town is only a few minutes walk, so no need to travel if you don't want to with everything you could need. Plenty of walks for you and any dogs. The lady who looks after the property was very helpful and friendly.

Mrs Janet M,
