  • "Marina’s cottage was a lovely place to stay."

    Very comfortable and a good location with a quiet pub across the road, the beach a very short walk away and a shop down the road. The photos of the cottage don’t do it justice, both the kitchen and bathroom are beautifully done. Would recommend to anyone.

  • "We had a lovely September break here with my husband’s family - even my mother in law (lovely, but with famously exacting standards) was extremely favourably impressed."

    The owner was very helpful and responsive and provided two cots, two high chairs and a stair gate as we had two babies and a toddler with us, plus dog. The house and garden are very comfortable, spacious and well equipped, with some extras such as buckets and spades, and the bathroom is fab. The location is also great - about 30 seconds walk from the pub, and only a few minutes from the local shop and the beach. The sea was very warm, and we swam and saw a seal which was a bonus. A great place to stay.

  • "Fabulous stay at this gorgeous cottage."

    Perfect for family catch up and the opportunity to enjoy the beach, which is 1 min away. The cottage is beautifully furnished and the kitchen is a dream. We enjoyed lazy chilled afternoons in the courtyard garden and our dog was so comfortable. We would highly recommend and will definitely return to this wonderful home. Thank you for answering my queries so promptly and the fresh flowers on our arrival. We can’t wait to come back.

  • "We had such a wonderful stay - every last detail was thought about and we were so comfortable throughout - would definitely come back."

    It may be worth advising the guests that glass can't be put in the recycling bin, because we unwittingly did and it wasn't collected and we had to make a trip to the dump! Thanks for a great stay!

  • "Beautiful property in an incredible location, so close to the beautiful beach!"

    Excellent facilities, everything we could’ve needed was provided. The owner was very easy to contact and friendly but not overbearing at all (we did not see her during our stay but were in touch via text, which was perfect for us). The house is spacious, well decorated, and warm and cosy. Plenty of space for the 8 adults that stayed (although the twin room was a little smaller than we expected, it was still comfortable and worked for us!). Parking was easy and convenient, both on the drive and on the road. Would definitely return to Marina’s cottage!

  • "The property is both spacious and homely with some beautiful artwork and lovely touches."

    The kitchen well equipped with a large dining table which comfortably seated us all for Christmas dinner. The wood burning stove made the large sitting room feel warm and cosy. Things like the TV and heating are all modern and easy to use. The beds are very comfortable and the bedrooms a good size with plenty of wardrobe space - there were no fights over who had the best rooms! The location is ideal - opposite a beautiful windswept (it was December) beach with sand dunes where you can watch the seals in the water. The owner was lovely and left welcome gifts and messages and responded to queries instantly. We had a wonderful stay and I hope to come back again.

    Location was ideal with close access to the beach and local pub / restaurant "The Jolly Sailor" was always welcoming and accommodated us for food and drinks.

The property

This charming, detached cottage rests just paces from Pakefield Beach to the south of Lowestoft on the Suffolk coastline.

Internally, Marina's Cottage has been furnished to an excellent standard, providing an ideal base for families or groups of eight to getaway and enjoy the delights of this seaside location.

After a day at the beach, look forward to unwinding in the quaint sitting room, finished with a sofa and armchair in front of the woodburning stove, creating a warm ambiance for when you return.

Allow the chef of the group to get acquainted in the kitchen/diner, fitted with a range of appliances sure to inspire some home-cooking, including a large range cooker and gas hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and even a dishwasher and washing machine, so you won’t have to worry about washing up!

Take the evening outside to the pretty enclosed courtyard, furnished with a table and chairs where you can enjoy a refreshing drink or two!

As you tire, head upstairs to discover the bedrooms, including three doubles and twin – each complete with fresh white bed linen and plush duvets to ensure lovely sleeping quarters.

Serving the bedrooms is a lavish family bathroom with roll top bath and walk-in shower, so you can decide how best to prepare for the day.

There’s plenty to do in this coastal location; just a short walk will bring you to Pakefield Beach, where you can lounge on the soft sands, build sandcastles with the children and enjoy the beautiful sea views, or wander through the gorgeous Kensington Gardens, which features a small Japanese inspired waterway, two bowling greens, a fairy tree for the children to visit, a bowling lake and a café where you can enjoy a fresh cup of coffee and watch the world pass by.

The local town of Lowestoft offers a great range of amenities, including a good selection of shops, pubs and restaurants, handy if you fancy a night away from the kitchen.

Visit the Somerleyton Hall & Gardens, renowned as one of the finest Victorian Stately homes in the country, or for a thrilling day out, the Pleasurewood Hills Family Theme Park offers over 35 rides, shows and attractions.

Just a little further afield lies the popular destination of Great Yarmouth, home to a whole host of activities to suit the family.

Make Marina's Cottage your next base for exploring Suffolk.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £400.
