    Cottage very well equipped and decorated. Easy access to walks, shops etc and to the main A12 by car. Lots of attractions within easy reach.There is a good bus service to Lowestoft, Norwich and Southwold too. But the best thing was the peaceful location. Felt really rested.

    At the cottage we were very pleased with the cleanliness and the equipment in the cottage left nothing wanting, in all we were very comfortable and the bathroom was very good. The view was the icing on the cake across the lawns strait over the dunes to the sea and plenty of booklets with interesting walks and plenty of good eating places locally.

  • "Cottage immaculately clean and comfortable."

    Had everything we wanted and was very well located near the Suffolk Coastal Path, with a clear view of the sunrise. Our first time in the area which we found fascinating. The countryside and coast was fascinating; we did a lot of walking and running. So many nice resorts nearby and many upmarket villages and towns e.g. Dunwich. We got to see the Broads as well and many historical places including Framlingham Castle, Sutton Ho and even Great Yarmouth with the faded grandeur of its Golden Mile.
