About Penny Bullock
My husband Richard, our two boys and I moved to Mellis from busy Hertfordshire in 2011. We had often holidayed in Suffolk and had longed to live here. The locals are really friendly and have made us as a family very welcome, already we feel like we have lived here forever! Our horses, dogs and chickens are completely at home and have made local friends too!! We love being part of village life where there is always something going on.
Penny Bullock purchased this Cottage in 2011

Thank you for your feedback and it was a pleasure to meet you both.
Beautiful cottage in peaceful location.
Had a wonderful few days at Orchard Cottage. Very pretty private garden. Had all the necessary kitchen wares. Really comfortable bed. Good WiFi reception.
Penny was very welcoming and helpful. Homemade muffins on our doorstep when we returned home after a day out! Lots of places to visit within short drive; use the ordinance map provided (in the drawer of the sideboard) to find little villages, rivers, weirs etc. Bressingham Gardens and the Owl Sanctuary definitely worth a visit.
