What our guests say

"Kestrel provided us with a fantastic base to explore this wonderful part of the beautiful Suffolk coastline and provided a lovely cosy retreat during our short winter break. The beach and town centre are within a short walk of the property which has been decorated beautifully with lots of innovative and original interior design ideas we will be borrowing for our own residence! Above all it is clearly maintained and cleaned to a high standard which my wife and I consider a pre requisite for a successful family break."

"A great holiday week for us all - we've been coming to Southwold for over twenty years and this is the nicest place we've ever stayed in..."

"Thank you for the extra items you've provided for the children - it made their stay (and ours!) a lot easier"
