I just love this little cottage

Jeremy is a great host, he responded fast to my messages, check in was super easy. Good location. All the amenities are close by, 3 min walking distance. The house is warm, clean, very cozy, the beds are really comfortable. The kitchen is better equipped than I imagined.
The living room is small but nice, comfy sofas, the log fire is lovely.
Every last detail was perfect.
My initial check out was on Tuesday but I decided to stay 3 more days, I just love this little cottage. I will definitely be back here. Thank you, Jeremy!

English charm

Flint cottage had the English charm I was hoping for. The host gave us a great tip about visiting Elveden Inn, which was nearby and very cool.. We loved it!

Great, cosy cottage with enough space for 4

Easy access, well maintained and well equipped.
We just used it for 3 nights Bed and Breakfast, eating out in the evening twice in Brandon (both very good) and further afield other night.
Didn’t need the log fire as the weather was unseasonably hot!
Good bathroom facilities.
Remember to duck in a couple of places………… you will soon be reminded if you forget, but that is all part of the charm of the place.
If you want all high ceilings, straight walls and flat floors book somewhere boring and without character
Would use again!

Perfectly located

Absolute gem of a place to stay! Perfectly located close enough to walk to the High Street but still ever such a quiet road! A few cosy nights in front of the fire was exactly what we needed after spending the days walking the forest!

Just quirky enough to give us a different type of stay

Thank you for our wonderful stay at Flint Cottage. We were visiting our son who is in Air Force and stationed at RAF Mildenhall, but lives in Brandon. The cottage was a nice stroll to his house and in spite of rain and snow while we were there, we managed to walk almost everywhere. The cottage was clean, had every amenity and was just quirky enough to give us a different type of stay than the usual “hotel” that all look the same! Will definitely stay again when we return!

Exceptionally well equipped holiday cottage

Flint Cottage is a delight. It is beautifully furnished, includes a log burner and has a lovely cosy feel. Every last detail has been thought of, it is exceptionally well equipped – to the standard of a good family home, rather than a holiday cottage. We were thrilled when we arrived and continued be impressed throughout our stay.

Fantastic, comfortable base

This cottage is ideally situated for exploring the beautiful Suffolk countryside & Thetford Forest. We were easily able to park outside the cottage each day and the cottage was incredibly comfortable, with everything you could need. Technology was a real bonus and we were able to watch three great films on Netflix whilst we were there. We were impressed to see that a set of steak knives were provided…this is the first time we have stayed in a cottage containing these! Very cozy comfortable bed, nice bathroom and plenty of space in the utility area for boots, bags etc. We will not consider staying anywhere else when we return to the area and are already planning our next visit.

Particularly suitable for couples

Lovely cottage in the heart of Brandon. Very quaint and cosy. Warm inside, comfy sofas, soft beds and quilts. Lots of DVDs, books and some games if weather is poor. Particularly suitable for couples and those seeking a relaxing weekend away. Shops and restaurants nearby and close to the beautiful Thetford Forest. We stayed whist visiting friends at Centreparcs-really easy commute. Our little chihuahua Suki loved it too. Really good value for money. Would stay again. Thank you.

I will definitely come back

The Cottage is absolutely a comfortable place. Close to everything.

The beds are comfortable and the place is very well maintained. I would absolutely recommend this place to all.

I will definitely come back and rent from Jeremy again. Fast response and was very nice to be able to check in early after a long flight.

Love, love, love his place!!

It had everything we needed

We really enjoyed staying in this cottage for a long weekend. It had everything we needed and Jeremy was very helpful. The village is lovely and the forest is perfect for morning runs and afternoon coffees.

We really enjoyed the walks

A lovely cosy cottage right on the edge of Thetford Forest. Really well equipped kitchen, lovely comfy bed and sofas! We really enjoyed the walks, lots of bird watching. Brandon country park is wonderful. We also did the circular walk around Weeting and St Helen’s, both on sheets in the cottage.

Nice cottage

We stayed for 2 weeks in this nice cottage and had a great time. The cottage is well equipped with washing machine, dryer, iron etc. Also there is a very good Wifi connection with a lot of streaming services (very useful if you have teenage kids…) The fireplace in the livingroom makes the cottage very cosy, especially at rainy days or cold nights you don’t want to leave the cottage. We will be back!

Fantastic stay

Very cosy cottage – Jeremy has thought of everything to ensure your comfort in this great location. The Wi-Fi and movies were my boy’s favourites and the location is perfect for exploring Norfolk and Suffolk. Even my youngest wants to come back for another stay. This is our first cottage holiday and it really sets the bar high – I can’t recommend it highly enough.

Enjoyed our break

Enjoyed our break in this part of the country – 1st time in this area. Plenty of shops, pubs and walks. Most of all, what a lovely cottage – will be back to this part of the world sooner rather than later! Thanks

Really enjoyed the bike rides

First time for us at Flint Cottage. Really enjoyed the bike rides and managed to get our son all the way to the Forest without cycling on the road.

Pop into the Brandon Heritage Centre (right behind the cottage) for small but very informative displays and lots of info on other local attractions.

Very peaceful cottage with everything we needed – thanks
