About Hilary Mahoney

I live in London but do stay at my Suffolk homes as often as I can, not only to make sure the standard of the cottages are maintained, but because the countryside is beautiful and the skies are vast in this part of the country.

I enjoy refurbishing houses and hope visitors find my taste eclectic, homely and comfortable.

Hilary Mahoney purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Hilary Mahoney chose Suffolk

The area is rural and still maintains rural ideals. It is just far enough from London not to become part of a commuter belt and is still a 'real' village where people live and work and farm. It feels a million miles away from the fast-living City life, although is only 2.5 hours' drive and the rail links are excellent, so provides a real break.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is in a small village which does have essential facilities like a well-stocked local store and post office, a wonderful deli and local organic butcher and great eateries within an easy walk.

The cottage itself is perfect for small children or those of limited movement as the ground floor is step-free and the stairs to the 1st floor have a door preventing inquisitive toddlers from mounting the stairs by accident. The access to the garden is also step-free.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a lovely time at your cottage. It was just what we were looking for and provided the perfect base for a few days of gentle exploring and relaxing.



Wonderful relaxing location. Great house - quirky and fascinating. A wonderful time had by us all and we would love to stay again in the future.



A good base for trips - everything was within 20 mins. A lovely bottle of rose to welcome us ... Thank you.

Lovely cottage in easy reach of Suffolk attractions.

  • 4 of 5

It is a really lovely, characterful cottage. We stayed from 4-11th August 2017 and found it to have plenty of room for 6 of us plus dog.

The single (or we had it as a twin) room is downstairs with large accessible shower room ensuite. The two double bedrooms are upstairs and are charmingly decorated and comfy. It has been lovingly restored and there was a delightful welcome pack - so thoughtful!

I hadn't read the details properly and thought there was no wi-fi - but there most definitely is wi-fi. In fact there is everything you could need for a week's break - it is really well equipped. The garden is great - a sun trap and a lovely place to sit with a book or a cuppa.

The location is charming - in the midst of a pretty Suffolk village with a fantastic pub (the Sibton White Horse) just a 10 min walk through the village. The local shops were great - an amazing butchers; a really special deli/smokehouse; and a post office/general store. There's also a charming tea rooms - Weavers. And, a family of peacocks in the village - peacocks!

All the coastal resorts and other attractions are very easy to reach by car - Saxmundham or Dunwich about 10mins, Southwold, Aldeburgh, Sutton Hoo about 25 mins. Framlingham Castle is about a 15min drive.

We had a great week in a lovely cottage and would thoroughly recommend it - thanks!

  • 4 of 5

The Property is a characterful and traditional cottage. Comfortable. Cosy. Well equipped. Decent bathrooms. Kitchen is small but was fine for 6 of us. Would have preferred some lawned area out in the garden as we had kids but we were out and about most of the time anyway and the kids enjoyed the garden well enough.
