St Michael's House is certainly a period property and is indeed listed under English Heritage.. It is a charming property, and had ample room for all 8 of us. A couple of issues arose during the week, and Sykes and the owner and corrected these. However, one of the issues had clearly been there for some time looking at the comments book.
It is a lovely place for a family to stay, and our grandchildren enjoyed the garden and we had two barbeques. The kitchen diner is good for a relaxed breakfast and then using the huge dining room table for evening meals. The dishwasher and washing machine worked perfectly.
Our criticism would be that the refurbishment of the property is not yet complete. Consequently, some of the windows would not open upstairs, which made a couple of the rooms extremely stifling in the present hot weather. Perhaps a couple of fans could be provided. I am aware that we don't normally have this sort of hot weather for weeks on end, however sleeping was really quite uncomfortable, especially in the single room upstairs, and the small double room.
If I were to be pernickety, I would also suggest that one shower for 8-10 people causes some logistical problems.
A lovely area, within easy reach of the sea at Dunwich, Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth, Bungay and Beccles are lovely little towns, and Norwich is not that far if you wish to go there.
