What our guests say

"Our second visit to this lovely house, in a lovely village in a lovely county! It is comfortable, clean and smart and we feel very 'at home' here. Staying in Alderton has given us the opportunity to explore this quiet, fairly isolated, and, to many, unknown part of Suffolk."

"Perfect escape from our busy lives – I rented Teacher's House for several days in early October with three friends. The cottage is beautifully and stylishly decorated. It was warm, cosy and very comfortable with everything we needed. For a small garden, it is absolutely delightful arranged on three levels. The house is well situated for lovely long walks and is within easy driving distance of some beautiful villages and towns. It was the perfect escape from our busy lives."

"We have had a lovely holiday in your comfortable house,thank you. I slept so well which is unusual for me, without being cheeky would you happen to know the make of mattress in the front bedroom!! The wine and choc.biscuits were a lovely welcoming touch,you sure do things well. I hope the season is good for you, and that many other people enjoy Teachers House and the lovely peaceful walk to the beach. Thank you once again."

"We have enjoyed a family holiday here. The house has been so comfortable and the weather superb all week. Thank you for the wine, chocolates and biscuits, such a great welcoming touch.
