Children

Here at Best of Suffolk, we work hard to provide Suffolk beach cottages to rent that are suitable for the whole family. The majority of our properties are entirely family-friendly and provide free travel cots and highchairs. Some properties can also provide additional baby/child equipment such as stair gates, steriliser, baby bath, baby monitor, children’s step, cutlery, and crockery. Please check out our family-friendly beach cottages or contact us for more information.

Mobility Issues

If mobility is an issue, take a look at our properties with ground floor bedroom and bathroom. These properties all have at least one bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor but may have stairs to other parts of the property. If you need a beach property that is all on one level and can’t find the right one, please contact us for further assistance.
