"We had a lovely Christmas stay at 114, the place was festively decorated by Alison which was very much appreciated."
Great location, a stones throw from the sea and lovely beach walks. Plenty of pubs nearby in walking distance and supermarkets/shops a very short drive away. The house had everything we needed and was spacious and comfy. Thank you Alison!
"We enjoyed our stay at114 by the sea, the beds were very comfortable and the whole cottage was clean, the position was great for taking the dog for a walk on the beach."
Lowestoft is in easy reach with the beach side prom which begins near the cottage.
"A real home from home."
Fabulous welcome pack and Alison had thought of everything you could possibly need. Great, quiet location too! Only thing to be aware of is second staircase very steep so maybe not suitable for elderly or disabled. Highly recommended accommodation.
"Everything you think you need and everything you didn't know that you needed are here."
Amazing location, and wonderful house and garden. We had the best sunny week here and we're sad to leave.
"114 By The Sea is a delightful terraced cottage."
I was a little unsure about booking a terrace as we usually choose isolated properties but we couldn't have been happier! Alison texted a few days before, and we met her as we arrived - lovely lady! She'd done a sterling job cleaning the house for Covid as it was absolutely spotless throughout. She left us a wonderful welcome pack full of lovely yummy treats - probably the best gift basked we've ever had at a Sykes property! Milk in the fridge, tea, coffee, biscuits, chocolate, crips, and popcorn! And the house was full of fresh flowers picked from her garden - lillies, sweetpeas and more! The house is on a terraced street with two pubs but you really wouldn't know it - it's so quiet. Right next to the beach and a superb location for all manner of activities - we had a beach ride, visited Sutton Hoo (book a tour to the mounds - absolutely worth it!), hired a day boat on the Broads, spent a day at Holkham Hall, visited the most easterly point in Britain and had far too many fish and chips! (Note - the chippy at the top of the road is very good but the one at the start of Southwold Pier is even better!!). The interior of the house is picture-perfect. There is one single bedroom off the back of the bathrooom which is worth noting but it really didn't cause any issues for the family. And the flight of stairs up to the top bedroom is very steep and narrow but it's all part of the fun. Lovely sitting room and a selection of books and DVDs though with so much to do in the area you don't really want to spend it watching the TV! There's a Coop and a Premier within easy walk for all your essentials. Parking was absolutely fine - one day we had to park round the corner but otherwise there was plenty available. Loved the cottage, the location and Alison! Thank you for a wonderful holiday!
"Fabulous house, spotlessly clean."
Lots of extra touches including welcome hamper and fresh flowers.
"Amazing Cottage, immaculately presented, spotlessly clean."
A fantastic location less than a minutes from the beach and several excellent dog friendly pubs serving great food.
Amanda was the perfect hostess welcoming us with a fantastic basket of goodies and was there when we had a query part way through the week.
Highly Recommended, will be booking again without a doubt.

The accomadation was the best one we have ever stayed in alison was very freindly we enjoyed visiting all the places around and the beach to walk the dog on and the fish and chips very unfreindly pub across the road but one further down on the left was a pleasure to go to and the teems also neighbours where friendly
Wonderful owner. this was our 2nd time at 114 by the sea. you could not ask for a better property or owner, thank you Alison. Would recommend it to anyone looking for a comfortable, clean well provisioned holiday stay, and the bonus is your dogs are very welcome too. So near the beach, shops and pubs. If your looking for an excellent holiday you cant go far wrong on picking 114 by the sea.
"For the second time we hugely enjoyed a week in this wonderful house."
Ideally located just a few steps from the beautiful dog friendly beach this house truly has everything you could ever want for.
Immaculately decorated this large property is extremely comfortable to stay in. We really appreciated the splendid welcome pack with not just milk and tea and coffee but wine and dog treats as well as the up market biscuits, Adnams local beer and the kettle chips. The owners have really gone the extra mile to make this property fabulous from new silky bedding to big fluffy towels and Waitrose hand wash. Will be booking another return trip.
"A beautiful and comfortable house were your every need is catered for ."
The home is beautifully decorated with perfect attention to detail. The furnitue and beds are comfortable and of high quality. The house has a lovely peaceful secluded garden to relax in . The location is perfect within yards of thr beach and miles of lovely walks, also very central for touring the area. In short great value 5 star property.
"Parking could be a problem although we managed alright."
Thank you so much for your feedback. The property has a local car park very close by in addition to the roadside parking. Thank you for the booking for 2020. We look forward to welcoming you back next year. Property Owner
"Brilliant location, very comfortable house made even better by the attention to detail by the owners eg, fresh flowers and thoughtful welcome pack and Easter decorations."
"The rental was like a home from home and it was spotless, really comfortable, warm and spacious."
The stunning kitchen was well equipped and proved to be the hub of our mini break. The bedrooms were all very comfortable and the two main bedrooms are beautiful. There was a lovely welcome pack provided with wine, treats for the dogs and more. The garden was pretty and was an important facility as we had dogs with us. The location is brilliant with the huge, lovely beach a minute away and a lively pub opposite and another down the road. Lastly, I met Alison the owner who was extremely welcoming and helpful.
"We stayed during Christmas; the owner had decorated it so beautifully for us."
It was lovely and warm. There was a huge amount of kitchen equipment. The bedding appeared to be relatively new. A nice location for a good walk.
"Lovely holiday home, beautifully decorated and furnished."
Ideal location with local shops and pubs and very near to all the big shops in Ipswich.
"114 by the Sea is a fabulous getaway for a family with dogs."
The house was so homely, clean, well deocrated and had excellent facilities for a short or long stay. There is a dog friendly pub just across the road with such friendly locals we felt so welcome, an amazing location for access to the beach and had shops etc close by.
The welcome treats were an added bonus and the house was nice and cosy as we arrived in the evening. The owners, Alison and Jon provided an information booklet on the area which was so handy. I would highly recommend staying here and would definitely like stay again in the future.
"We have just returned from a weeks stay at 114 by the sea and I cannot rate this cottage high enough."
We had heating and lights on when we arrived, a welcome basket and even a bowl of water for for the dog!
The cottage is beautifully decorated and equipped with absolutely everything you need. It’s close to the beach and plenty of choice for eating out. There are also shops just down the road.
We didn’t want to leave. Jon & Alison deserve all the great reviews they get!
"Wonderful Owner very helpful."
The house was just lovely, it was big enough for the five of us and the dogs, everyone enjoyed the week we stayed there.
It is ideally situated , the beach is just across the road, there are shops and pubs, within walking distance to cater for most things and the town was not far away for anything else that was needed.
Would recommend Sykes and the holiday accommodation, in fact we have already booked for next year.
"Amazing property, comfort, style and location - it has it all!"
"Sykes staff were so helpful when we first made enquiries about this cottage, promptly dealing with our questions and getting back in touch with us."
The owner was equally as helpful when we needed to contact her and she appeared to go out of her way to help us plan our stay in Pakefield.
We found the cottage was in an excellent position for access to a super, family orientated beach holiday. Nearby were 2 convenience stores, a very popular fish and chip shop, several restaurants/pubs serving good food and a tea rooms/cafe. The cottage was immaculate and beautifully decorated and appointed as shown by the photographs on the website. The owner left us a wonderful welcome gift pack catering for all ages in our family group, as well as a vase of fresh flowers! How kind and generous. We would recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a peaceful, idyllic, traditional holiday amid comfortable, cosy surroundings.
"Absolutely excellent holiday home, clean and tidy with every accessory and utensil you could need."
Garden lovely and all dog friendly.
Excellent position stones throw to beach and local pub/restaurants.
"A true home from home with everything you will ever need, house was exceptionally clean and tidy, back garden was a real sun trap and lovely place for a quiet drink and relax."
Stairs to master bedroom on the second floor are very steep, narrow and twisty but worth the effort to get there, just be careful in the night if you've had a wine or two and have to visit the beautiful bathroom!
"A truly stunning home, spotless, well equipped and extremely comfortable."
Gorgeous garden. Everything is so well presented. Fabulous location just perfect for walking our retriever on the beach just a stone's throw away.
Arrived home yesterday and booked 114 By the Sea again for 2019 today. Can't wait.
Lots of special little touches. Lovely walks.
"First experience of a holiday cottage, absolutely fantastic, start to finish."
I shall certainly book through Sykes again.
"This dog-friendly, lovely house provides absolutely everything any guests require."
Having stayed in other rental properties, we took along small items (salt, pepper, vinegar, etc) with us, and brought most of them back home! There were even doggy biscuits, poo bags and toys for the dog. The house is beautifully decorated throughout, in an ideal setting for dog owners, so near the beach. The local pub opposite serves decent food and dogs are permitted in the bars; the Jolly Sailor, just down the road admits dogs from 10am to 11.30am, over the breakfast period. I would certainly recommend this property without hesitation.
"It was the ideal holiday for the family close to the sea and a dog friendly ..."
It was the ideal holiday for the family close to the sea and a dog friendly beach would go again the house was fantastic thank you
"Lovely place very clean lovely welcome basket beach just a short walk away pub ..."

"Absolutely lovely place."
Extra special little effort made by the owners for you to enjoy. Would definately recommend!
