What our guests say

'This is our first visit to Suffolk and how lucky we were to book this delightful cottage. We visited Aldeburgh, Woodford, Southwold, Minsmere, Dunwich, Snape, Framlingham, Sutton Hoo and Orford, but still found plenty of time to relax in this lovely comfortable and peaceful house. Thank you for a perfect stay' 

"This is the best self catering accommodation we have ever stayed in. 
Great idea to have TV in two rooms – so the rest of us didn’t need to watch Formula 1!’"

‘Thank you for creating such a home from home – you have provided everything one could need and it all works!’

'Lovely family break in a cosy cottage in the beautiful Suffolk countryside, fab time had by all including Bertie the Dachsund. Despite home being only 30 minutes away we have had time to explore and made trips to Southwold, Dunwich, Ufford Park crazy golf, Orford castle, Framingham Castle, Aldeburgh and Thorpeness plus some great walks locally. Love the Rayburn and Woodburner, plentiful hot water for baths!'

'Our third year here. We love the place! The weather has been glorious - great walks and good times just sitting and enjoying the cottage. We will return'
