Food and Drink:
As this accommodation is self-catering, the hire price does not include any food or drink. We are happy to provide cereals, fruit juice, tea, coffee and bread for toast from stock for a nominal sum per person per day. We are also happy to provide you with sufficient sausages, bacon, eggs, mushrooms and yoghurts from our usual suppliers at an additional charge. We can recommend a good local wine merchant who can also supply some local (and excellent) lager - although we cannot get involved in the supply of this as we are not licenced. The nearby pub also supplies ‘take out’ beer in various sizes.
There are also a couple of firms which will deliver a range of local produce. Most of the produce they supply as being local. They are The Suffolk Providore, and We Love Local Food.
We are happy to accept a supermarket delivery arranged by you, on the day prior to your arrival.
The hire price does not include any cleaning services, apart from on departure. If you would like a daily service of each room (clean bathroom, vacuum room as necessary, straighten up bedding, replace refreshments), then please ask for a quote and more information.
