  • "Seaview in a good position for the beach and walking, also near to many Suffolk towns and villages."

    As in many holiday lets we find beds not to be the most comfortable, but the facilities were good and bungalow was very clean and tidy, we would stay again.

    Hello - we were a bit surprised to read your comment regarding the beds as a guest has asked me where we bought the bed in main bedroom as she wished to purchase one the same and in March last year we bought 2 new, quite expensive, Slumberland mattresses for the single beds. However thank you for your other comments and hopefully we’ll have the pleasure of welcoming you back Property Owner

  • "The cottage was in a great position for exploring Suffolk."

    We hired a day boat from Waveney river centre and explored the river and Oulton Broad. We also visited Southwold,Walberswick, Thorpness and Benacre all within easy reach. The cottage was small but we had 6 adults and a dog staying and it wasn’t uncomfortable. It was well equipped and decorated tastefully. There was a sea view and it was nice hearing the birds and waves during our stay. There is a steep set of steps down to scrubland and then a little walk to the sea. Because there is limited access, the beach was generally deserted. Small areas were fenced off for nesting birds. I would definitely recommend this cottage for anyone wanting to visit Suffolk.

    Some pleasing touches to make the accommodation comfortable and friendly.

  • "Sea View is a great property."

    It is comfortable, well equipped and was immaculately presented on our arrival. It is obviously the owner's much loved family retreat and has many homely touches. The bungalow is situated on the cliff top, looking out to sea, and, although there is access to some steep steps down to the beach, we walked a short way along the lane to some easier steps or a ramp. Kessingland is well situated for visiting many of Suffolk's places of interest and is an excellent base.

    A sea view is an added bonus on a sunny day, so relaxing sitting on a well placed bench admiring the view. Would highly recommend this charming cottage.

  • "As usual this is a really good well equipped and comfortable chalet."

    Used it before and will again. The only minor fault i could possibly mention is that this chalet does allow one dog and it has a what looks like a permanent slight plumbing leak to the washer which has some stagnant water build up which a vigilant dog could find. Other than that absolutely perfect

  • "We were very dubious about going away after lockdown, but Seaview felt very safe."

    There was hand sanitizer in every room and it was spotless. The owner, Sylvie, was most welcoming and helpful, which we really appreciated. Perfect location too - lots of interesting places within driving distance, and you couldn't wish for a better view than the one we had from Seaview. Please pass on our thanks to Sylvie, we had a super time in her lovely cottage.

  • "We had the impression from the photo that this was a bungalow attached to a house but actually it's attached to other holiday homes on a small holiday park."

    It's a well-kept site and there was plenty of parking in February. Although we couldn't get the beach gate open with the key, I found the other set of stairs a little way down the lane and there is a ramp further on. The beach is naturally wild and beautiful and Kessingland has good amenities - Africa Alive, fish and chip shop, Coop supermarket and pub selling food. Sykes impressed me with all the info / communications prior to the stay and it was very easy to get in and set up. The bungalow did smell of damp on arrival and was chilly but it was very early in the season. We soon warmed everything up with the electric radiators. As this is a family holiday home, it was incredibly well equipped and looked more like a home than a bland holiday let. It had everything you could possibly need! The showers were not that hot but usable. Apart from that, we had an excellent stay and felt the owners had really taken great care to make their guests feel at home.

  • "The small bungalow looks out on to a well kept grass area and then over the dunes to the sea."

    It was a comfortable place for the three of us to stay with bathroom and toilet, shower and toilet and three bedrooms. The kitchen is very small but well equipped. The dining area is narrow and in our view would be a squeeze for 6 people. The WiFi was particularly good. There is no dishwasher and the bathrooms do not have shaver points. The TV is quite old now. The sitting room is comfortable. We were happy to water the flower pots outside.

    The area is very dog friendly, both shops and restaurants welcome your pet. This is our fourth visit to Kessingland Cottages but the first to this property. We would gladly return to this bungalow with no hesitation whatsoever.

  • "Nice small bungalow and does look over the sea, could be a little cleaner especially the on suite shower room floor."

    The private garden for dogs is across the lawn with a locked gate and no key, and is very small and overgrown so not suitable at all. Plus 68 steps to the beach but with a good hand rail again locked gate but with a key in the bungalow, not really suitable for the older person or anybody who is not fit. All in all a great location for places to visit Lowerstoft and Great Yarmouth is great for children with sandy beaches and nice and flat for walking along the proms.

    Thank you very much for your feedback. I am really sorry that you did not feel the property is not clean. All floors are vacuumed and then washed at each clean, and other comments left, particularly in our Visitors' Book, mention the words 'spotless on arrival'. It is very strange to see your comments about the 'private dogs garden' being small and overgrown, locked and without a key. There is NO 'private dogs garden' and the area to which I believe you are referring to belongs privately to the site owner and is where he stores the mown grass cuttings and hedge trimmings, prior to his disposal of them. As it's out of the way it doesn't interfere with guests in any way and it has never been suggested before that it is anything but what it is!! It is locked and without a key as it is a private area. The whole of the communal grounds can be used for walking dogs but in common with most holiday sites, dogs are requested to be kept on a short lead. Along with the unlimited freedom of the beach for dogs, there is a small wood situated just a couple of hundred yards northwards along the lane from the car park which is ideal to let dogs have a run. The steps to the beach are clearly mentioned in the description of the bungalow. Thank you. Property Owner

    The cottage was located in a nice quiet area with a few steps to the coast. The owner Sylvie was really accommodating we arrived quite late as we booked the cottage on the same day Sylvie was really accommodating we called her quite late in the evening and she didn't mind at all. I would recommend this cottage we enjoyed it so much we stayed an extra night. We have definitely found our stay-cation and will be back soon.
