"Lovely cosy property"

I have enjoyed my stay at Gig House ... and I have been extremely happy with everything. Gig House is a lovely cosy property with all facilities needed for my stay and especially my hosts who have been so kind to me and have gone above and beyond what I would expect from hosts. Thank you.

"Fabulous week"
I had a fabulous week at The Gig House. Ian provided very clear directions to their place - in a very peaceful village. The bed was super comfy with lovely bed linen and the property was extremely well equipped for self catering. The private garden was very relaxing and parking on the driveway was perfect. Highly recommended. Everything was fabulous. Thank you."

"Ideal location"
"We had a very good time in our fortnight at The Gig House. The owners are very attentive and kind and the kitchen is extremely well fitted. There is also a delightful secluded garden only for the guests. Due its central position in the county, Stonham Aspal is the ideal location to visit Suffolk, but also Norfolk and Essex are very easily reachable, as sandy beaches with dunes. Absolutely recommended. Excellent"

"We had a wonderful week at Ian and Janine's place. The bed was extremely comfortable and the cottage was comfy. Ian was very friendly and came to introduce himself on our first morning. We were around 15-30 minutes for most of the things we wanted to do and places to eat. We felt very relaxed during our stay."

"Perfect spot"
"Really enjoyed my week here, perfect spot for visiting all the places in Suffolk on my "to do" list. I loved the property which has real character and the private garden area was perfect for relaxing after a busy day. I would definitely stay here again if I am ever back in Suffolk."

"A lovely week"
"I had a lovely week staying at the Gig House. Ian welcomed me when I arrived and replied to any queries I had very quickly. The Gig House has everything I needed including parking right outside, internet, a comfortable place to stay including a log burner and ideally situated for all the places I wanted to visit. Would definitely return if in the area again."

"Everything you need"
"Lovely property with very friendly owners on hand if you needed them. The cottage has a charm to it and is set in a small quiet village. Furnished to a very high standard and had everything you need for a self catering stay. Thanks Ian and Janine and we hope to see you both again."

"Great little cottage"
"We really enjoyed our stay at The Gig House. The cottage was clean, cosy and very well equipped. The communication with the owners (Ian & Janine) both before and during our stay was spot on. The owners live in the adjoining property so were on hand if needed, but respected our privacy too. Many thanks". 🙂"

"Great for couples and singles getaways."

"Ideally central for the places in Suffolk"
"Ian and Janine were pleasant and obliging, and we enjoyed staying at The Gig House. But it's also about location, and this was ideally central for the places in Suffolk that we wanted to see."

"I've stayed in a lot of AirBnB’s, never felt more at home"
"Ian and Janine were incredible hosts. The accommodation was amazing in such a beautiful rural part of Suffolk. It’s incredibly homely and in a beautiful part of the countryside. I've stayed in a lot of AirBnB’s, never felt more at home."

MG, UK/Canada - April 2021

"Thoroughly recommend a stay"
"Ian and Janine could not have been more helpful. The accommodation is comfortable, clean, warm and well maintained. The wood burner stove is outstanding in the amount of heat it produces. It has kept us toasty in the cold weather. Lovely walks around the local footpaths and good communication with surrounding area. The kitchen is well equipped. Thoroughly recommend a stay."

"Peaceful hideaway in the Suffolk countryside"
"A lovely little cottage, situated behind the owners' house, but with its own private garden. Ideal location for the main towns nearby and for trips to the coast. Quaint but comfortable with all the facilities required for simple self-catering and wonderfully helpful hosts. This was our second visit, as we had enjoyed it so much previously."

AM, UK - July 2019

"Lovely field walks right on the doorstep"
"The Gig House was a great place to stay. Ian and Janine were helpful hosts. The accommodation was thoroughly clean and comfortable, and in a good location to travel around different parts of Suffolk. Lovely field walks right on the doorstep - ask Ian for details!"

"Lovely comfortable cottage"
"Lovely comfortable cottage with everything you need in a perfect location to explore Suffolk. King size bed very comfortable."

JH, UK - June 2019

"Quiet and restful"
"The cottage had mostly everything we needed and was quiet and restful. Not having been in that part of Britain before we found many historic sights to explore and National Trust places to visit. It is close enough to the coast for day trips and we enjoyed the RSPB sites particularly. It was good to have a comfortable place to come back to after a pleasant day out."

JS, Wales - April 2019

"Pleased with every aspect"
"This cottage is just the right size for two and has a very private garden. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed ready to hand. The bedroom had plenty of storage room and a very comfortable bed. Bed linens were good quality and towels soft and fluffy. We were very pleased with every aspect of this property."
