What our guests say

“This is a stunning house - A high level of finish and detail in every aspect. There were three generations from London, Oxford and Bucks. My father lived in Reydon & Southwold has always been a special place for us. The weather was unbelievable and we took full advantage of ‘Windrush’ the beach hut.”

"Had a wonderful weekend here at Heron House, celebrating our parents Diamond anniversary. Lovely house, beautifully decorated and very comfy and cosy (especially with the coal fire). Had a fab lunch at the Red Lion, would highly recommend a visit! Enjoyed our stay!"

"What a great week we've had! Heron House was perfect. We've had a wonderful holiday together celebrating my 30th Birthday. The weather was perfect and it was an ideal location for the pubs and shops."

Another wonderful family week together in Heron House. The location really is just perfect and the proximity of the beach has been brilliant with the weather so sunny this week. Great to eat together round the lovely table and play games. We will be back.”
