  • "Absolutely beautiful house in a beautiful location."

    The extra little touches make all the difference and the owners had certainly thought of everything. The welcome hamper was very thoughtful. We were a group of 8, two families with young children, and the house was perfect! Glynis was lovely to deal with and called a couple of days before to explain things. We would definitely recommend and will hopefully be going back.

  • "We had a fabulous time."

    The house is so beautiful and full of character. We loved it. We loved Frinton on sea too. It was lovely and quiet and the beach is gorgeous. Sometimes we had it all to ourselves! We will definitely want to visit again!

  • "The house was perfect for us with lots of facilities and all the things you need to have a unworried holiday - lots of crockery, glasses, cutlery, towels, good instructions and a fantastic welcome pack."

    The house is so near the beach and the shops. The owners were so approachable and helpful before and during the holiday making any little problems go away.

  • "This was a repeat stay at the house which now feels like a home from home."

    The house is large and very well equipped; it is clear that a lot of thought has been given to what visitors will find useful. It is always spotlessly clean and the welcome basket is generous with quality products. The owners are very helpful and friendly if you need assistance with anything. The shops in Connaught Avenue, which include a Sainsbury’s and a Co-op, are a short walk away as is the sandy beach. We would not hesitate to recommend the yellow house for a relaxing holiday or break. It is particularly good for walkers and families with children.

  • "We loved The Yellow House - it’s stylish and grand but also really comfortable and a very relaxing place to be."

    Very comfortable beds, well equipped, tonnes of space, beautiful enclosed garden and lots of thoughtful details (eg generous welcome hamper, beach towels, buckets & spades). The beautiful beach is just at the end of the road, and Frinton’s charming high street, which has everything you need, is a short stroll away. We highly recommend and would love to return.

  • "This was our second visit to the house."

    Like last time we had a lovely holiday in this very comfortable relaxing home. It’s in a great location - close to the beach and the shops in Connaught Avenue. We arrived to find a generous welcome basket of food as well as items in the fridge. The house was spotless and the beds are very comfortable. This property provides everything you need for a relaxing stay and we would have no hesitation in recommending it.

  • "We had a wonderful stay."

    The property location was excellent and it was very comfortable. Things we loved were the outdoor shower for sandy feet, plenty of seating in the garden and the amazing welcome hamper. We could, perhaps, have benefitted from more teaspoons and mugs (we are big tea drinkers!), and more clarity on the recycling bins and what goes out when. Luckily the neighbour was happy to help us sort it out! Overall we had a very relaxing and enjoyable visit and will be back again!

    The owners had taken considerable trouble to ensure we had everything we needed. There was a hugely generous welcome basket and this reflected the generosity, kindness and thoughtful attention to detail that the owners had bestowed throughout the house. It felt like a home, not just somewhere you stay on holiday. We would like to say a very big thank you to Glynis & Paul and hope to return again.

  • "A wonderful holiday home."

    Clean, spacious, well-equipped with bags of character. Had the added bonus for me of being very similar to my Granny's house and bringing back lots of happy memories. Moments from the sea. Very kind and helpful (though not intrusive) owners. Lovely garden. Quiet and peaceful location. The only issue we had was the owner accidentally gave us the key code with one digit out, so we couldn't get in at first. In fairness to her, we called and she answered straight away and then gave us the correct code and we got in. However- if I were to go again, I'd definitely double-check any info I'd been given before setting off. We would heartily recommend this property to just about anyone. Thank you very much for a very enjoyable stay.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely spacious house."

    We particularly loved the big dining room and the well equipped kitchen. The owners provided a generous welcome basket which was greatly appreciated. The beach is a short distance away and is safe as it shelves very gradually as I remember well from my childhood growing up here. A variety of shops including a baker, butcher and wet fish shop are a short walk away. There are also supermarkets within easy reach. This house is ideal for a relaxing holiday particularly for walkers, bird watchers (at the nearby Naze) and fans of swimming.

  • "This house is amazing both in character and convenient position for the beach which is one of the most child friendliest around."

    The hosts went out of the way to make sure we had a brilliant time and left us a beautiful basket of age appropriate goodies. The garden was super for little ones to play safely and to hide in all the little dingle dells. We loved the dining room with space to sit and eat as a family, the children pretended it was a restaurant and served dinner! We cannot fault the effort made by the owners and the quality of towels bedding etc. We did take our own safety gate as the stairs are big and our babies were 4 and 2. Walton on the Naze beach and the Tower are worth a visit we didn’t really need to go anywhere else ! This house is the secret you want to keep but feel you should share with everyone it is a home not a boutique show house there is one tv in the lounge for those quiet evenings when the little ones are in bed and a super veranda that Nana spent most of the week on! With grandchildren curled up beside. I would love a washing whirling thing in the garden as the airier wasn’t big enough for 8 towels/ swimmers baby gear etc. We wanted to save electricity and not use the dryer. Definitely a 10/10 holiday. Highly recommended. We will be back.

  • "Beautiful house and garden, spotlessly clean."

    The owners went the extra mile in making us feel welcome including leaving a very thoughtful bundle of bread, eggs, milk, biscuits and more. The house is a very short walk to the stunning sandy beach meaning we could pop back for anything we needed. It's also walking distance to the town centre. After a lovely relaxing week, we would highly recommend this property.

  • "The Yellow House in the Corner was an excellent choice for our holiday with our big family of 8 (6 adults and 2 children)."

    Our hosts could not have been kinder or more thoughtful, providing a welcome hamper, meeting our adult children at the cottage on their arrival and showing them around, and suggesting places to visit in and around Frinton. We had lots of space to spread out as the house is truly wonderful, with a beautiful garden and little nooks to hide in with a good book.
