  • "Very comfortable."

    Great location. Lovely pub within 100 yards.

  • "Disappointing."

    The advertised "fridge/freezer" is actually an undercounter fridge with a completely frosted up, unusable ice box at the top. All the frozen food we had taken with us had to be eaten during the first two days. The shower room outbuilding is damp and fetid and would have been even worse if I hadn't emptied the dehumidifier water tank daily. I should not have to clear up dog poo from the garden and path - presumably left by previous occupants, but not picked up by the cleaners during changeover. Wifi is weak and regularly dropped out completely. No password instructions left for the apparently stronger network, Riverview2. No instructions for bin collection day. Had to work out for ourselves that it meant taking the bin across the field and leaving on the roadside near to the pub.

  • "Lovely cottage."

    Very well presented. Clean and comfortable. Hard to find! Wouldn't like to look for it after dark. Distance to car park also includes getting luggae to cottage. Could be clearer. Very overgrown path!!

  • "Bed was a little soft for me- that might not be a problem for others, just that I’m used to a hard mattress."

  • "The property was cold and damp due to the gas bottles being empty."

    This wasn't resolved until the Wednesday- at the least I would have expected to be offered electric heaters as an interim measure. I don't expect to have to sit in my coat inside a house in May, nor for it to be warmer outside than inside the house. The shower outbuilding is basically rotting and although not billed as a sleeping area, the photos are very misleading. Extremely disappointed overall.

  • "What a wonderful cottage!"

    So much charm and character - we loved it. A super base for sailing and exploring the area. Thank you.

The property

Overlooking the River Orwell and nestled within a garden of mature shrubs, River View makes a fantastic base for a family of four, with a great range of home-from-home amenities and activities within the local area.

Park at the public car park a short walk from the property before reaching this fantastic white wooden house and making yourself at home in the sitting room, reclining beside the Aga woodburning stove with a coffee to plan the day ahead of you whilst the little ones enjoy a boardgame.

When stomachs start to rumble, an amply fitted and cottage kitchen makes the perfect space for any budding chef to cook up a storm, serving it in the dining room, where the wooden structure of the cottage adds character to the walls and ceiling.

After a day of exploring the beach, a stylish claw-foot bath will soak the sand from your hair, before you get cosy in one of the two bedrooms, both with homely décor with a splash of colour, including a king-size and a twin room.

That is not all, however, you will be delighted to discover a beach hut hidden away between the shrubs, where a bunk-bed and en-suite create a fantastic space for children to cosy down for the night, adding an extra sense of adventure to your stay.

Enjoy river views from the garden, or dine alfresco a glass of your favourite beverage amongst fresh countryside air.

The local area of Pin Mill is within reach of several great beaches, including Felixstowe beach.

Along the riverside there are many countryside walks for you and your family to enjoy, including Pin-Mill National Trust and Alder Carr.

Further from the property there are many more great beaches, including Aldeburgh, and castles dotted across the Suffolk landscape just waiting to be discovered, including Orford Castle.

Enjoy a getaway to the countryside with a stay at River View.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
