Butterfield House is a great place, in a great location. Beccles town is only a few minutes walk, so no need to travel if you don't want to with everything you could need. Plenty of walks for you and any dogs. The lady who looks after the property was very helpful and friendly.Mrs Janet Macey - 26th July 2018

What a wonderful weekend away it was. We chose it for a special birthday and it certainly lived up to that. The local pub was very friendly and welcomed dogs which is important to us. The locality is excellent. We will certainly be returning. Everything was perfect.Miss R Eardley - 30th November 2015

Really nice property. Would definitely recommend it to friends and family.Mrs Rohon Bhuyan - 2nd September 2015
This property was fabulous. a dream to stay in and enjoy with so much in it to please and entertain from hot tub to cinema room, the list is endless. A very old house with history and comfort. Some furniture a little wobbly but that only added to the charm. Seriously what a great place. We all had so much fun and felt at ease to enjoy ourselves too. Loved it.Miss Wakeling - 27th January 2014
