  • "Had a great week, this was my 4th visit to this village."

    The CH did not appear to come on until c7.75/8pm - an additional room heater would have been useful, but this was not an issue. I would not hesitate to spend another week in this cottage.

    Thank you Brian - we are so glad you enjoyed your stay at our lovely cottage. You can adjust the c/h settings at anytime with the electronic switch on the wall on the stairwell. It is quite easy to use. We only ask that - given the recent massive increase in our energy bills - the c/h is used sensibly and it is turned down when you leave. We would be pleased to have you return anytime and hopefully the above will help next visit! Property Owner

  • "Enjoyed our time at Gulls Nest."

    Good location, near the beach. Local shop/ 2 good pubs serving food nearby. My only criticisms would be: lack of a vacuum cleaner/broom. Wasn’t possible to keep floors very clean as there was only a long handled brush and dustpan. It would have been good to at least be able to remove dog hairs and any crumbs etc regularly. Also, instructions for the induction hob would have been useful.Not everyone has one at home !! we never did work out why it kept turning itself off during cooking !!!! Overall our stay at Gulls Nest was very enjoyable. It was well maintained and nicely decorated.

    Dear Betty So Glad you enjoyed your stay. There is a vacuum cleaner now under the stairs. Property Owner

The property

A lovely mid-terrace house resting in the village of Pakefield, Gull's Nest is a delightful property on the Suffolk coast, perfect for a family of four to enjoy.

With a bright open-plan living space, an enclosed courtyard and even a cute snug room, Gull's Nest is perfectly positioned for exploring the likes of Lowestoft, Great Yarmouth and even some of the Norfolk Broads, as well as the beautiful beaches.

Enter into the open-plan living and dining room to find a pretty blue sofa, and an armchair resting before the electric stove-effect fire, perfectly positioned for enjoying the TV in the evening.

A contemporary dining table with bench seating sits to the back of the room, ideal for coming together at the end of the day for a family meal, before you head into the excellent fitted kitchen.

Discover all the appliances you need for a self-catered stay, including a fridge/freezer, electric oven and hob, and a washing machine.

Continue to the very back of the property to find the ground-floor family bathroom, with a bath and shower over to serve the property.

The pretty courtyard is great for stepping outside for some fresh air in the evening with a drink before you head out for dinner in Pakefield or Lowestoft, with outdoor seating to relax on.

Head upstairs to find the two bedrooms, coming first to the twin room with lovely decor and matching bedding, and then to the double bedroom which benefits from a large walk-in cupboard space for hanging your things.

From the double bedroom you can find the sweet snug room, set up with a chair and desk space, great for anyone who has to bring the office with them on holiday, or a good space for the travel cot to be placed for little ones.

Everything you need can be found within a short stroll from Gull's Nest as well as historic pubs, a cliff-top church and the beautiful Pakefield Beach dotted with fishing boats, you can enjoy lovely walks along the Victorian promenade and pebbley sands.

Discover the UK's most easterly town, Lowestoft just a few miles north of Pakefield, famous for being the first place to see the sunrise in the UK and home to many attractions.

Let the children run through the 74 jets of the Princess Royal Fountains, browse the high street which lies in a historical part of town, discover the maritime history at Heritage Quay and the Maritime Museum, and visit Lowestoft's beaches popular with families.

Head to Oulten Broads and hire a boat from Oulton Dayboats to coast along the waters, coming to waterside restaurants and looking out for all kinds of wildlife.

Take a memorable trip to Africa Alive!, a walking animal safari with an African theme, home to wonderful animals like rhinos, lions and ostriches!

If you're a family of thrill-seekers then head to Pleasurewood Hills Family Theme Park where rollercoasters, rides, animal shows and laser tag offer endless entertainment for all ages.

Settle in at Gull's Nest and enjoy a holiday full of adventures with your loved ones on the Suffolk coast.
