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.

The property has met all our expectations - the pictures don't quite do it justice. The cottage is quite spacious, the kitchen is very well equipped and the area is very nice for walks. We even saw some wild animals in the garden (e.g. a muntjac!).
Thank you for your helpful review . It’s always reassuring to know that the cottage has met your expectations . The varied wildlife population is such a bonus too.
Lovely place to stay
Super and well designed cottage, comfy and with everything one is likely to need. A plus is the garden area for guests and the beautiful views of surrounding countryside . Penny is an attentive but not an intrusive hostess. Dogs have a great time too.
Thank you. I’m so glad you and your dog had an enjoyable stay .
Stunning setting ... lovely cottage!
Our stay was lovely, the cottage warm and cozy with everything you could need.
Our wonderful host Penny was very welcoming and had lots of local knowledge. She also gave us some lovely treats ... chicken and duck eggs, chocolate biscuits and home made apple juice not to mention freshly made rhubarb muffins. A great place would go again in a heartbeat.
