    “This is our second stay at Kestrel cottage.”

    We enjoyed the cottage and Southwold very much , also the closeness of the beach is amazing. You can literally smell the beautiful sea air all day and all night , we leave the windows open its so refreshing . The only thing that we feel needs an upgrade is the TV. Although there is a sky box many of the channels arnt available. BBC is only available via I player, which is inconsistent. Although staying in to watch TV isn't important, it's nice to have available is required , after all it's ...
