  • "Fabulous location just a few minutes walk from Pakefield beach."

    Comfortable, well equipped accommodation. Only minor quibble would be the terribly slow broadband connection. There's good 4G coverage though, so we were able to use our mobiles instead.

    Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry to hear you had some issues with the broadband at the property, if we had been made aware at the time we would have been able to resolve this for you. I can confirm that the broadband has now been fixed. Property Owner

  • "The cottage is well equipped and was adequate for our needs."

    There was plenty of on street parking and we were able to unpack the car right outside the front door. The cottage was nice and clean and the welcome gift was a very nice touch. The owners sent a text to make contact when we arrived and it was nice to know someone was available if we encountered and issues. The location of the cottage is perfect with a pub and the beach two minutes down the street. There are plenty of walks available for the dogs and Lowestoft is just a short walk along the prom. The only issue we encountered were that we were only getting 0.4mbps on the WiFi, just make sure you have plenty of data available and don't bother connecting to the modem.

  • "Good location, nice tidy property but lacking in comfort."

    Poor quality furniture i.e settees uncomfortable and very low, mattresses on beds lacking in depth and bedding, duvets and pillows poor quality and well worn.

    Thank you for your feedback. Comfort – The cottage sleeps 4 and is furnished with 2 x 2 seater sofas. Seat height is 20 inches [approx 510mm], which we would consider to be a standard height. The seat squabs and covers were fitted new in January 2021. For clarity, the double bed mattress is 9 inches deep [approx 230mm],premium quality and locally hand made. Bedding – During the summer beds are made up using a low tog summer duvet, however, guests have access to thicker duvets to suit their preference. In this instance bedding and pillows were new in April 2021. We accept that pillows can be a matter of personal preference so providing medium firm items tries to reach a happy medium. We are sorry that the comfort did not meet your expectations but we will take on your comments. Property Owner

  • "You might be familiar with soft close toilet seats and lids."

    These close very slowly under their own weight. A problem for people with those is that all other lids and seats everywhere are not soft close, sometimes catching people out ! The Eco fifty degree / minute dish washer cycle seemed to take quite a while. Nevertheless the plates and cutlery were sparkling afterwards. I didn't use the washing machine as the weather wouldn't let me get it all dry before going home. I thought the central heating arrangement / programme is a work of absolute genius - most impressed. My brother made use of the Wifi. I liked the regional BBC News as Well.
