  • "We had a really lovely week at Seascape."

    I would definitely recommend it. We didn't want to leave! Originally we had booked to stay in May but unfortunately my children caught Chicken Pox from school so we couldn't go. Peter was so kind in agreeing to change the week at the last minute instead of cancelling. I happily paid the extra to stay in August in the school summer holidays. I thought the price was really reasonable since other places in Suffolk were a lot more expensive! When we arrived at Seascape, we were amazed how spotlessly clean it was! It seemed more spacious compared to the photos and the view from the balcony was wonderful! It was great to have a separate bath downstairs and a shower upstairs. We were impressed with all the little things that had been included in the kitchen and it was nice to have a welcome pack of tea, coffee, wine etc. The WiFi and the smart TV were great. The location is excellent. We loved the private access to the pebble beach. We were also close to Lowestoft so perfect for my children to enjoy a sandy beach. Kesslingland is a nice village, bigger than I had originally thought. We enjoyed our day out at Africa Alive, which is very close.

    We would definitely come back, it's so quiet and relaxing and yet close to things if you needed anything. I was also impressed with Peter, who checked by text to make sure we were happy with everything. We struggled to open the padlock to get down to the beach, although it did say in the book it was tricky. The only other thing I would say is that we were told we had 2 parking spaces but when we arrived there weren't any. I do appreciate you can't stop other people parking but I think it might be helpful if the spaces were marked somehow to try and stop other people using your spaces.
