About Mrs C Rowe

I have taken over the running of this holiday cottage from my husbands parents who have been running it for over 20 years and who have been living at the farm house for 80 years and over 50 years.

Why Mrs C Rowe chose Kelsale cum Carlton

Many customers can not believe how quiet it is at the cottage and many have booked numerous return visits. One couple have been coming every year for 20 years.

                                                  Peace and quiet but close to A12

                                                  We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rubblestone. The cottage has everything we needed and was comfortable and peaceful. Just a few minutes drive took us to the A12 which made visiting Sutton Hoo and Southwold easy. It is also a short drive to Minsmere which is well worth a visit. Thank you to the Rowe family for providing an ideal base for our short stay in Suffolk. It was a pleasure to meet you both. Highly recommended.

                                                  A lovely cosy , spotlessly clean cottage attached to very old interesting farmhouse. Lovely family - lovely time. The pears were much appreciated too!

                                                  My husband and I had the most enjoyable 3 night stay in this cottage. The cottage itself had everything you need, lovely sitting room with delightful view, bedrooms spacious and comfortable with plenty storage, kitchen was very well equiped too. Outside the property was a very pretty place, lots of lovely bright coloured flowers and shrubbery, even some home grown veggies. Lots of wild life to be seen around the grounds also. We would recommend a stay at this beautiful property to anyone that appreciates a peaceful and relaxing time.

                                                  We had a lovely stay but unfortunately I was ill and didn't get the most out of it. The area was fantastic and the cottage a good base to visit many places. We particularly enjoyed going to Minsmere. The lanes were ideal for cycling with very little traffic and not hilly.

                                                  The cottage was comfortable with plenty of seating for 4 adults. We only used the kitchen for a basic breakfast so I cannot really review how well it was equipped. There were plenty of pubs within easy driving distance to eat out in the evening.

                                                  The owners and neighbours were very welcoming and friendly.

                                                  Edmund N.

                                                  This is a lovely cottage set in farmland that gives it a great sense of privacy and peace. Charmingly furnished and presented. Liked having a patio area on either side of the property so we could catch the sun throughout the day. The mattress and pillows were a bit uncomfortable but apart from that it's a lovely peaceful place to stay and get away from it all.
