"This house had everything we needed including bathing items for the dogs!"
The little treats left for us when we arrived were lovely. The house was beautifully clean and had everything we could need for extra tidying etc. The garden was well fenced and big enough for dogs to ‘mooch’ about. Thank you very much for our very enjoyable stay. Sue
"We had a lovely week at the cottage, the property was clean, comfortable and well equipped."
The enclosed garden was perfect for the dogs. The beach is a few minutes walk away as is the fish and chip shop which we can recommend. The chinese food from The Happy Wok was delicious. Supermarkets are a short drive away. Oulton Broad was worth a visit.
"Had a lovely week away at this lovely little cottage ideally situated for the dog friendly beach."
Lovely touch to receive little treats for both the dogs and us Will definitely be returning again next year thank you. Keith and Ju
"Well equipped and comfortable cottage with good outdoor terrace and secure garden for our dog."
On arrival treats for adults and dog were provided, a lovely touch. Dog cleaning box a very good idea. The owners directions to the property were excellent straight to the parking allocation. Great location 2 min walk to the beach, 10 mins to the pub or chippy.
Thank you for the positive feedback and sounds like you found everything that made your stay comfortable. Property Owner
"A beautiful property, exactly as advertised."
A short walk from the beach, and well situated for some great days out. The property had everything that we needed and was extremely clean and well maintained. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Thank you for the great review . Property Owner
"Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 7 Coastal Cottages, really comfortable and quiet and exactly as described."
Nicely laid out and decorated and well equipped, the owner has clearly put a lot of thought into it Parking is a bit tricky for larger cars but you soon get used to it
"Great cottage in a perfect location."
Garden ideal for the dog to run around. Everything you needed was available. Two minutes to the beach and five minutes to a pub. Also excellent fish and chip restaurant a couple of minutes away. Perfect spot for exploring the Suffolk coastline
"The property was a delightful cottage which was in a great location and contained everything you would need for a comfortable stay here."
It was a real home from home. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to anyone who wanted to stay here. And the welcome pack was a lovely surprise, our dog Ozzy enjoyed his dog treats very much.
"The cottage was perfect for our needs, very comfortable, spotlessly clean and well equipped."
Just a short walk to the beach too. We would recommend The Waterfront restaurant for delicious and very well priced food (probably best to book) and Covehithe, about 10 minutes drive, a hidden gem! Park by the old church, then a lovely footpath through barley fields and a nature reserve area to the beach (no facilities there). Kessingland is an easy drive to Southwold and Aldburgh, both worth a visit too.
"We had a great holiday in lovely cottage, well equipped and comfortable."
Kessingland is nice village and close to some the lovely spots in Suffolk. Would certainly recommend.
"This is a very comfortable cottage by the sea with an enclosed garden which is good for dogs."
I was very lucky with the weather so I was able to sit in the garden until late at night and you can hear the soothing sound of the waves crashing on the beach below. The cottage sleeps 4 so having it to myself was luxury! It is very clean and has everything you'd want. The owner had even left some treats for me and the dogs. I will be happy to stay here again and recommend it to others.
"Lovely Holiday accommodation - quiet, and well stocked with everything you need - plus a lovely welcome pack."
Jackie was very helpful, and just a text away if we needed help. Secure garden for the kids (yes I mean the dogs!), Although we did struggle with restrictions for the pups - basically only allowed in one area/room of the house (they are used to having the run of the place at home) I can understand the reasons but it would maybe stop us from booking again.
Thank you for your honest feedback Leslie. We are pleased you found the accommodation to your liking. The situation you found yourself in with your pets may be a misunderstanding, we have tried to make the "downstairs only" arrangements clear and obvious within the on-line property information and these mirror Sykes standard Ts and Cs. Our aim was that by having hard floors downstairs and an effective pet gate at the bottom of the stairs, guest with pets would find the property easy to relax in. Property Owner
"Great from beginning to end."
Owner is lovely and communication is great. The sand dunes and beach are a couple of minutes walk away. The property is well kept and even has a gate on the bottom of the stairs which is great if you have a four legged friend! Will definitely return.
Thank you Sarah glad to hear you made good use of the access to the beach, there is no doubt that its great to be able to walk your dog somewhere so dog friendly , without having to put him in the car first ! Would love to welcome you back Property Owner
"The cottage was realy nice, it was warm and welcoming when we arrived in the snow, the heating worked well."
The sofa and chair were very comfortable as were the beds. The kichen was well stocked with everything for cooking and plenty of crockery. The cottage has good off road parking and is a few minutes walk to the beach via the back door and to the road and sea front via the front door, its very conveniently placed. We has a very enjoyable holiday.
"Once again a lovely welcome pack , it’s always a pleasure to come back to this cottage , so cosy and warm , fantastic location and as usual we will be booking again ."
"It’s our home from home , lovely welcome pack , really great place to stay and relax ."
We will be booking again as usual
It was a pleasure to have you stay again ,looking forward to having you both return and the furry friends,most welcome. Property Owner
"Lovely house, well fitted and we'll equipped."
Great location - very close to beach. Dog friendly with secure garden and patio area. Generous welcome pack. Highly recommended.
"We had a lovely week staying at the cottage."
A perfect location to explore more of Suffolk.
"Excellent, we couldn’t have asked for more."
We had a lovely holiday and the owner couldn’t have been more helpful. We will be back again. Thank you
Thank you for the positive feedback Angela, we have the weather on order for you. Jackie Property Owner
"Very nice holiday cottage in a great location clean and well equipped would be happy to go back there again."
"This is a gem, it could not have been cleaner and is well equipped."
Beach and quiet walks only 10 mins away. Lots of attention to detail eg the bedside lamp is not so bright that you fully wake up if you switch it on in the night. Directions to the parking spaces also very useful. Had a lovely relaxing stay, and hope to book again next year.
Thank you Lesley for the positive feedback. Glad you found some relaxation, we would love to welcome you again next year. Jackie Property Owner
"Lovely cottage; immaculately clean."
Very nice Welcome Pack was a lovely surprise and a good supply of "Essentials" was an added bonus
"The cottage was very comfortable, clean, well equipped and conveniently positioned in that we could walk to the local pubs, chip shop, restaurant ( The Waterfront."
..recommended!)and beach. The chocolates and milk on arrival were a lovely touch. Kessingland is only a few minutes to Morrisons on the edge of Lowestoft and in the village there was a Spar and a Co Op. It would be ideal for people bringing dogs and Kessingland beach was good for dog walking. It's very close to Africa Alive which was a very pleasant day out, and Southwold was very nice. We visited Framlingham Castle and Sutton Hoo in around 45-50 minutes each
"Lovely little cottage, my Golden Retrievers loved the garden."
A real home from home, and the welcome treats for us and the dogs were amazing and very much appreciated after our longer than anticipated drive. The cottage itself is far closer to the beach than we expected ☺️, it was very clean and everything you’d need for your stay is here. The Beach hut (nearby shop) sells a plethora of things and I can’t recommend the Kebab & Pizza shop enough! The local residents are so very friendly we will definitely be back.
"Perfect location for exploring the Suffolk coast with the beach just a few minutes away."
We all enjoyed our holiday in a lovely comfortable dog friendly cottage with everything we needed for the week.with added treats on arrival
"We had a lovely week's holiday with our dogs in this great cottage."
The cottage is very well equipped and very comfortable. Great location, only a few minutes' walk down a quiet lane to a dog-friendly beach. We enjoyed having a sunny patio and garden. Nice pubs, restaurants and fish and chips all within walking distance or a short drive.
"The property is perfectly set up for a holiday stay, it has everything you’d need."
We have been to this village 6 times & would book to stay here again.
"A beautiful,well equipped cottage Very close to the beach which was heaven for our dog!"
Lovely gifts left by the owner Would thoroughly recommend.
"We had a very relaxing week in this delightful cottage which was extremely well equipped, well maintained, very clean, warm and cosy!"
Our dogs also had a great time at the extensive beach which is a stones throw away from the Cottage and it provided us all with some welcome bracing fresh air and exercise. We felt our stresses melt away in the peace and quiet of Kessingland and wished we could have stayed longer. Thanks to the owners for a great stay in their Cottage.
"We have just spent a lovely week at 7 Coastal Cottage."
The location is perfect for the beach, just a couple of minutes walk. The Cottage is comfortable and well equipped. Jackie and her husband could not be more welcoming and helpful. Thank you for a great holiday.
"A lovely property so close to the beach , could do with some sharp knives in the ..."
A lovely property so close to the beach , could do with some sharp knives in the kitchen was difficult to slice anything when cooking The dogs loved the garden with dog friendly neighbours which is a bonus The chocolates and biscuits were a lovely surprise and treats for the dogs too ,many thanks
"A great Cottage to stay in."
Beautifully decorated, clean and everything we needed. Close to the beach, not too much to do in Kessingland but our 11 year old and 13 year old loved the cottage, beach and local pub. Easy drive to get to surrounding places to visit. Communication with the host was great, and the lovely lady left us a welcome pack which was delightful! We have two dogs and everything was easy. The only thing that some people may wish to know is there is no upstairs toilet for little ones, or for those of us that get up in the night.
"My sister and I have stayed in this cottage before, we love it."
The welcome pack, for the dogs as well is a lovely touch, it feels like a home from home and we relax as soon as we step in the door. Excellent proximity to the beach and it’s nice to have a garden to sit out in and also allow the dogs some space.
"The cottage was excellent."
I think next time we'll stay a bit north or south, there was not a great deal to do unless you go some way in the car. See you again in the new year up the Glen Coe area. Thanks. Martin.
"Beautiful cottage, wonderful location, have stayed before and would do so again"
"Fabulous break after Covid and will return as made to measure for a break not needing a car."
A loo upstairs would have made the facilities 10/10
"The cottage is lovely."
It contained everything you could possibly need for a holiday stay. We loved sitting in the garden having breakfast or an afternoon drink.
"The cottage is perfectly situated and a great place for dog owners."
Very cosy and comfortable accommodation. The owners have clearly spent a great deal of time in meeting the needs of the holiday-makers. One problem - the dogs had more biscuits in the welcome pack than I did!!!
"Everything was just perfect."
"Regarding 7 Coastal Cottages it is close to the Beach area ."
Kessingland is ideally placed for visiting the other Coastal resorts and the Broads.
"A very tidy clean cottage beautifully kept"
"Outstanding Cottage in superb location only 2 minutes from beach down a track/footpath"
"We enjoyed an excellent stay at the superb cottage that has been furnished and decorated to a high standard."
Everything we needed for our stay was provided at the cottage. A thoughtful touch was the message from Mrs Schofield, the owner to make sure everything at the cottage was to our liking and all was well. Allan and Lesley Walters and Gwen our black lab, Swansea.
"Very clean, very comfortable, great quiet location."
Very helpful owners. Would go again, happy to recommend.
"The cottage was quite comfortable and its position was great for the beach, pub and restaurant."
Also a small local shop and cafe within a few minutes walk. The cottage was very clean and well equipped. Only one negative , there was no welcome pack, not even a pint of milk. We would have loved a cup of tea after a six hour drive to get to the cottage.
Thank you for your kind feedback. Welcome packs have been removed from properties to reduce the risk of COVID contamination, information regarding this is sent to all guest prior to their arrival to ensure you take all of the items you may need during your stay with you. We hope you understand our reasons for this. Property Owner
"My sister and I have been visiting Kessingland for a number of years now, this is the first time we have been to this property but will definitely return."
The welcome pack was a really nice surprise and the dogs loved their biscuits. We felt at home immediately, facilities are excellent access to WiFi was much appreciated, we took “Alexa” so enjoyed our pick of music...... really happy with our choice of accommodation, would recommend the property to anyone, particularly with dogs especially with the garden..
"A lovely cottage in a peaceful location, it has everything you need for a relaxing holiday, and the owners are super helpful."
Suffolk is a very dog-friendly county, and there are so many amazing places to visit with your pooch, you are really spoilt for choice. Our dog loves it here, so we have to come back!
"This is a delightful cottage in an idyllic setting, fabulous beach a stone's throw away."
Very peaceful, great pub with good food, very friendly reception from everyone. Lovely welcome pack at the cottage with owner texting to check that all is okay with us. This is our second visit and will be back next year. First stay in cold weather, cottage VERY cosy, would thoroughly recommend.
"Third time for us great holiday, only down side was they failed with weather this time."
"This is a first class cottage for anyone wanting to visit the beautiful Suffolk coast with their dog."
The cottage is very cosy, ample heating and hot water and very comfortable. Most unusually for a holiday let the wifi was excellent. The long secure garden was ideal for our dog to mooch in between outings and we all loved the dunes and beach just two minutes walk away. The patio was great to have morning coffee on, still catching the sun in late September/early October. You need look no further for a dog friendly holiday in this part of England, thoroughly recommended.
"What a gem of a cottage tucked away and yet in a central location."
The cottage was Very clean, comfortable and a lovely set of extra gifts provided by the owners upon our arrival, thank you. Kessingland is very dog friendly and the beach is 2 mins away along a little used lane and path. The cottage has a nice long garden and the benefit of catching the morning sun, even at the start of September this allowed breakfast out on the patio. The neighbours were friendly and the owners could not have been more helpful. The beach is made up of sand, shingle and dunes and is very large and quiet. Our dogs loved it and were happy to return in the evenings and snooze away with doggie dreams. From warm summer mornings to cosy winter nights, this cottage really is a home from home and a credit to the owners for providing an inviting atmosphere. We would love to return.
"The cottage was ideal for us, very comfortable, well equipped and there were nice personal touches."
It was very useful to have the parking space. Good location for Lowestoft and Southwold and easy access to the beach at Kessingland. The thoughtful treats on arrival were very welcome. We would stay at this cottage again.
"We have booked other holidays with Sykes, and they have all been brilliant."
This cottage in particular was wonderful.
"Cottage great just few min to beach and meals at pub great,had a few problems ..."
Cottage great just few min to beach and meals at pub great,had a few problems but owner sorted very quick and we had great time
"A lovely cottage in a peaceful location and short walk to beach and pub, friendly neighbours - would I come back?"
"Lovely cottage very comfortable and nicely decorated ."
Nice long garden for dogs to run in and doggie treats left for them . There was also milk , biscuits and box of crocs left for us which was a nice touch . The location was very peaceful just five minutes walk to lovely beach where the dogs were allowed .. Good pub in village serving food .
"The cottage was lovely and it was evident that much thought had gone into making it as comfortable as possible for guests."
"This little cottage was excellent."
Very clean and everything you could ask for to provide a good relaxing holiday. We had a wonderful holiday taking our Golden Retriever, Elsa for lovely walks along the beach. We will definitely visit again soon. Angela and Richard
"We were so delighted with the cottage and it's quiet location so close to the beach."
The cottage exceeded our expectations - it was gorgeous, beautifully furnished, spotlessly clean and so comfortable. The enclosed garden was perfect for the dogs. The unexpected welcome treats (for humans and dogs) were a lovely touch. Kessingland is a friendly, quiet location with miles of empty beach and all the local residents we met were so friendly. We would definitely book again.
"Delightful cottage very convenient for the sea, has everything you need for a comfortable stay."
Owner is very helpful, you won't be disappointed if you stay here.
"This was by far the best accommodation we have stayed at."
Perfect surroundings and a stones throw from miles of amazing walks and scenery. Cottage met our every need and nothing was not on offer. Would recommend to anyone and hope to visit again soon.
"Could not wish for better"
"This was a very comfortable, cosy, well equipped cottage."
There has clearly been a lot of thought and care into making sure holidaymakers have everything they need. Location is excellent - just a few minutes walk to the beach and lots of walking. This is a great place to take dogs.
"We had a wonderful holiday, cottage had everything we needed, very clean, warm, ..."
We had a wonderful holiday, cottage had everything we needed, very clean, warm, close to the beach, the owner left us treats on arrival very kind and unexpected, would defiantly book again
"Very well located cottage."
Had everything you need.
"Loved this cottage, a welcome pack on arrival including Dog treats."
Central for exploring. Beach a few minutes away and a Pub that allows dogs in ,that serves wonderful food. All round little gem.
"Another excellent cottage found via your website."
Good communication for directions etc from owner, which was just as well as the cottage is sort of back to front i.e. Accessed from garden, with no apparent front door. Very pleasing nautical decor particularly the 2 bedrooms and comfy bed. The Kitchen had plenty of accessories including some basic condiments, even washing machine and dish washer tablets. Living area well laid out with pleasant suite, TV and DVD player and selection of books, if needed. Our dog was also very happy with the fenced garden and we were happy with the stair gate keeping her downstairs knowing she was not allowed upstairs saved us from nagging her all the time ! The location was also good for us, short walk away from garden gate to a brilliant beach of shingle and dunes which was dog friendly, our dog just ran and ran. There is a very friendly Pub off the beach with good basic pub food and dogs accepted inside plus choice of fish shops if you didn't want to travel far but the cottage is sited about half way between Southwold and Lowestoft, both good places to visit In all a good week's holiday - home from home and an extra touch was a welcome card. Chocolates, biscuits, bag of sweets and biscuits for our dog left for us - very thoughtful.
"Everything met the discretion, the detailed instructions on how to find cottage where brilliant, and the owner was very welcoming and helpful ."
"Very relaxing and peaceful."
The cottage has everything one could wish for.
"This cottage was the best we have ever stayed in for, location, comfort, ..."
This cottage was the best we have ever stayed in for, location, comfort, facilities provided beyond and above, cleanliness and the owner deserves a pat on the back
Extremely clean and well equipped. Would like to suggest that a grab rail on the wall above the bath would be very helpful for those of us who are getting older.
"Was great holiday just wish the fence was better as neighbours had dogs and so did we kept barking at each other ."
Butt everything else was brilliant.
"Need to change duvet on double bed to a summer quilt too hot apart from that every thing else was great"
"Excellent location with an enclosed garden very close to a dog friendly beach."
The property had eveything we required for our stay. Would be happy to stay there again if we returned to that part of the UK.
"Very well presented and immaculate for our arrival."
Well equiped kitchen and much better than other holiday rentals we have been in. Central heating was not working on arrival but on contacting the owner it was repaired that same day. It was almost home from home...please thank the owners for a wonderful stay.
"An excellent holiday for dog owners who enjoy walking them on the beach."
A very well equipped and convenient cottage in a peaceful spot.
"Very comfortable cottage, exactly as described."
Great location for the dog friendly beach.
"The comfort of a well presented cottage."
Excellent facilities. Everything had been thought of. Will definitely book again.
"7 COASTAL COTTAGES met all our expectations."
A lovely cottage in a great location. The cottage is very well equipped and has been tastefully modernised. The owner was more than helpful and we appreciated the welcome tray. We would not hesitate to recommend this cottage and will certainly consider a return if we come back to this area.
