A lovely house to bet our families of different ages together. Young & old were well catered for. Having lived near Beccles decares ago we've had a trip down memory lane. So different but better in many ways!

Previous Customer,

Walk into a lovely warm house to find a beautiful welcome pack. (Good job as left a bag of food at home!). Had a lovely chilling week.

Walker H,

Our second stay at Butterfield House - and we loved it just as much as the first time! Loved sitting by the river and playing ping pong. So restful and relaxing and so much different from the madness of London. We just love this wonderful house and hope to come back again really soon. Thanks for everything Ms Potter - including the welcome basket. I would love to research more about the house and its history!

Previous Customer,

We have had a lovely week, really enjoyed stay here in Butterfield House. Beccles is a lovely town, hopefully we will be back. Beautiful garden!!

The S,

An amazing quirky property with lots of character, spacious and relaxing. The house had everything we needed, lots to keep the family occupied with the cinema room, games room and loads of outdoor seating areas. Sitting in the garden watching the river was so relaxing, and plenty of pubs, shops and restaurants within easy walking distance. The welcome pack was lovely, and the birthday decorations were such a touching surprise. A brilliant place to make happy memories.

Ms W,
