    It was very clean and the facilities were excellent. It caters well for dog owners. It is 2 minutes walk away from the beach.

  • "This was our second visit to Sea Breezes and it felt like coming home."

    Comfortable, clean accommodation with everything we needed for our stay. We were able to cook an Easter Sunday roast and bake a Simnel cake without needing to buy any other equipment than what was already there. The lounge is comfortable and suited us perfectly for evenings in. The bedrooms are perfect with sturdy furniture, comfy beds and quality linen. The bathroom is spacious and the shower is powerful with a reliable provision of hot water from the super-efficient boiler. The heated towel rail is an added bonus. When we did have to use the heating, the house heated quickly and stayed warm after turning the thermostat off. Sea Breezes is perfectly situated for walks to the beach, the pier, the local shops and the local pub! We slept soundly with no disturbances and will definitely be back again at some point. Thanks to Jackie for being an exemplary host and on hand if needed.

  • "Had a great week here."

    Jacky was so nice about our 'key problem' loved the location, beach at one end of road (and pub) Well stocked shop at other end. Buses to all the places we wanted to visit. Mattress on double bed is VERY firm but obviously this is a personal preference and the kettle doesn't turn off by itself. Cottage very clean, spacious and has everything you need, small sitting out area was lovely to cool off after the hot weather we had in September! All pubs serve great food (check times) and The Tramway is the best breakfast ever.

    Thank you for your kind review Sylvia, we confirm kettle has been replaced. So pleased you enjoyed your time at Sea Breezes. Property Owner

  • "A wonderful stay As a family of three with two small dogs we found Sea Breezes to be the perfect place to stay whilst holidaying and visiting friends in Pakefield."

    The cottage is scrupulously clean, decorated and furnished to a very high standard, and we had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable and home-from-home. The extra bits for our dogs were so thoughtful, as were the generous welcome gifts. Jackie was friendly and helpful, and easily contacted although we didn’t need to get in touch during our stay. It was nice to know that Jackie was on hand if we needed anything. The cottage is perfectly situated to be a quiet retreat yet the sea is a stone’s throw away, with The Jolly Sailors pub & restaurant at the end of the road, a corner shop a few doors down, Tea by the Sea tea shop, and a fish & chip shop situated in the next street. Thanks, Jackie. We loved our stay at Sea Breezes

  • "Lovely cottage, only a few minutes walk away from a very nice dog friendly beach."

    Cottage is spacious, with all rooms furnished to a high standard - cottage has got every thing you need for a very comfortable stay. Great location - quiet, yet close to beach, coastal path, a couple of good pubs and a good fish and chip shop. Luckily, we even had some decent weather thrown in, so we were on the beach most days! Jackie, the owner of the property, provided great communication from the outset (and beyond if you had any queries) - very nice person and very helpful. Parking was also a breeze (no pun intended) - I was able to park outside the property every night. I would have no hesitation in recommending. Thank-you for a lovely stay Jackie and Skyes.

    Thanks for your feedback John. We have taken a detailed look at all the furnishings in light of your comments. Both sofas are under three years old and we believe having 2 x 2 seaters offers the best combination of comfort and living space. Bedding and pillows were new for 2023 and 3 rooms had new curtains in January 2023. Thank you for booking Sea Breezes. Property Owner

    It was a last-minute booking and gave the owner Jackie little time to prepare. However, when we arrived the cottage was warm and homely, the Chocolate, Wine, and cookies made us feel instantly at home and the cottage had everything you could wish for. A lovely place to come back to and relax after a hard day's renovating. The Jolly Sailer pub just a few minutes' walk away was a wonderful place to eat but beware Friday and Saturday it gets remarkably busy even at this time of year. Thank you Jackie for the use of your lovely cottage.

    Thank you Elaine pleased to have provided you with some sanctuary. Hope you move has gone smoothly. Property Owner

  • "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

    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.
