About Milly Prior

My name is Milly and I have always lived in this area and at the house for about 15 years, its located on my Husbands Farm. I have welcomed many lovely guests in the past 5 years to enjoy the Suffolk/Norfolk countryside, what we do everyday! I am only next door so am on hand to assist with anything you may need extra for your stay.

Milly Prior purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Milly Prior chose Suffolk

NEWLY REFURBISHED WITH A UNIQUE INDIVIDUAL STYLE, SPACIOUS AND VERY CHILD FRIENDLY WITH LOADS OF TOYS AND BOOKS! WOODBURNING STOVE FOR THOSE WINTER DAYS. VERY CENTRALLY LOCATED FOR NORFOLK AND SUFFOLK INLAND AND COASTAL AREAS.

What makes this cottage unique

GREAT VIEWS ACROSS FARMLAND, OVER SHEEP FIELD. QUIET, HOMELY AND VERY COMFORTABLE WITH ALL YOU COULD NEED FOR A RELAXING BREAK. SAFE WALKING WITH CHILDREN FROM DOORSTEP (Just need to be aware of any farm machinery)

Guestbook comments from the manager

Pecks Farmhouse is tucked away in a peaceful and secluded location within walking distance of a pretty little village and a great pub. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Caroline, the owner, made sure we had everything we needed, including plenty of local information, a home baked cake and eggs from the farm's hens. The farmhouse is spacious and homely with lots of lovely decorative touches. We were made welcome from our arrival and felt very well cared for by Caroline - who went out of her way to help us during our stay. One aspect of the location we enjoyed was the ease with which we could explore Suffolk and Norfolk. We visited the Suffolk and Norfolk coast and the Broads during our stay - and there is plenty more to do on our next visit. The farmhouse was well equipped for all aspects of our holiday - games, books, magazines, plenty of hot water and a very well equipped kitchen. There are beautiful country walks from the front door and a picturesque village at the end of the lane. We would thoroughly recommend this lovely property to anyone who would like a relaxing peaceful place to stay that is within reach of amenities and places to explore.
