What our guests say

“Brilliant location with great sea views. The accommodation is excellent and contains everything we needed. We would highly recommend a visit to the Landguard Nature reserve and fort. The Regal on the seafront is a great place to eat"

“A lovely week spent at Martello Dawn for my parents 50th wedding anniversary celebrations, comfortable, spotlessly clean, great location, light and bright - Thank you”

“A very restful weekend, a lovely property with everything close by. Would recommend the house to others, especially for its nice views and lovely interior, thank you”

“Booked three night stay for men to fish, amazing weather, ideal location but unfortunately only caught 3 fish!”

“Had a week at the house. We enjoyed our stay - we were lucky with the weather, dry and sunny (although cold wind most days). We would recommend the walk over to the foot passenger ferry to Harwich and the boat trip. The house is great and kept us hot and had everything we needed.”

"Thanks for letting us stay if only for a short while. We have stayed in many houses around the world and this is amongst the best, The very best."
