  • "We had a lovely relaxing week at The Hideaway."

    The cottage had everything we needed and the owners were perfect hosts - available if needed but otherwise unobtrusive. It wasn’t warm enough to sit outside but we spent quite some time gazing out of the large windows, across the wild flower meadow, watching the birds and animals.

    Glad you enjoyed your stay, shame about the weather...who would of thought June would be so wet. Property Owner

  • "Great location for exploring the area, as well as having a lovely outlook for just relaxing and doing nothing."

    The property was warm and cosy for a late winter/ early spring break. Having the owners close by was also a great bonus. Would highly recommend.

    Many thanks for your kind review. Hope to see you both again soon Property Owner

  • "We had a wonderful week away at The Lookout."

    The property was spotless and super comfortable, the views are amazing, and the hot tub was very welcome after a long day walking! The kitchen was well-provisioned without being cluttered. The owners are lovely and on hand with a good recommendation or help if you need them. We’d absolutely recommend this property to anyone looking to stay in the area - the views alone are worth it!

    Thanks for taking the time to review us, really appreciated. Glad you had a lovely time, hope to see you both again in the future. David & Marina Property Owner

    Spacious yet cosy, The Lookout is perfect for peace and quiet, in a tranquil setting - with the added bonus of a hot tub!

  • "What a beautiful property you have!"

    We had the most relaxing time and came back totally refreshed after our stay there. Being able to wake up each morning to the panoramic view through the windows was glorious. We were very lucky with the weather too so had unwinding time in the hot tub after many long walks. We even got to see Seals close up on Horsey Beach! Would highly recommend as the owners made us feel very welcome.

    Thanks for taking the time to give us a review, much appreciated. Hope to see you again. Property Owner

  • "Fabulous holiday."

    Great welcome. Cabin was clean and well equipped. Great views across the fields with plenty of wildlife - we even saw a barn owl one evening. The food at the Village Maid was fabulous and well worth a visit. Plenty to do nearby without having to drive too far. Highly recommended!

    Thanks for taking the time to review, much appreciated. Property Owner

  • "What a stunning place, so many attributes."

    The location, the quality of the accommodation and the fact that you're in the heart of a village with a pub! The owners really made it, a personal great, with offers of a light weight duvet as the temperature's soared to 30°, and instructions on how to fire up the hot tub. The view from the dining room and lounge were intoxicating. The wild life around the area was amazing, we even spotted a white Seka deer! This is a perfect location to explore the area of East Anglia. Having been to many self catering holiday accommodations this would rate as one of the best.

    What you mean only one of the best??! Only kidding :-) Glad you had a great time, was a pleasure having you stay. David & Marina Property Owner

    Sunsets from the hot tub were a particular highlight! We would definitely visit again and recommend The Lookout to our friends and family :) Thank you!

    Sorry for slow response as we've been away ourselves. Love those sunsets too! Hope to see you again at the Lookout Property Owner

  • "This is an amazing location."

    You know you've picked well when on the first night you're watching a Barn Owl hunt for its dinner about 30 metres away from you. Muntjack deer almost up to the windows, a Buzzard hovering over the field, absolutely incredible. In terms of the property I don't think we've stayed in a location that has been so well thought through. The heating zones, lay-out, and comfort are top notch. The cherry on the cake - the host Marina was also great and made us feel immediately relaxed. Can't fault this one.

    Sorry for the slow reply but we've been way on holiday ourselves. So glad you enjoyed your stay at the Lookout. The wildlife and the view is still amazing to us and we've lived here a long long time and it changes with every season. Thanks again and hope to see you back in sunny Suffolk. Property Owner

    Highlight for us was the views, peace & quiet and the hot tub! Accommodation was comfortable, clean and well equipped. More storage in bedroom for clothing would have been great, but this definitely didn’t spoil our break. Would highly recommend this destination.

    The whole place is finished to a very high standard with lots of lovely little extras with even a choice of pillow types which was really appreciated. The super king bed was very comfortable and the dyson fan in the bedroom was greatly appreciated in this warm weather. The location is very peaceful and there are stunning views and sunsets from the windows and patio area. The hot tub was easy to use and perfect for our relaxing break. Thank you very much to the lovely owners.

  • "Property was as described and per the photos."

    Property was of a high standard - the owners have really succeeded in making the property extremely comfortable and luxurious in a very easy and informal way. We loved it. The views are fantastic - even binoculars are provided to view the wildlife. A small welcome gift was appreciated too. The property owner was keen to please - we didn’t need to bother her - but we certainly would have if needed. It’s obvious that she wants her guests to be happy with every part of their stay. Would highly recommend. A tranquil oasis only a few miles away from the buzz of the seaside towns and the beauty of The Broads. Village cafe and pub are fab too.

    Great patio sun trap, with loungers provided. Hot tub excellent. A bit too warm inside, however the owners provided fans and are looking at purchasing air conditioning.

Offering far-reaching countryside views, this property is perfect for two guests looking to enjoy a quiet escape.

Park up in your off-road parking space before stepping inside the lodge, which was once a stable, but now offers a beautifully-refurbished holiday home with the added comfort of underfloor heating throughout.

Time it right and you'll be savouring a romantic meal at sunset, with the dining table for two set in front of large windows looking out onto rural views.

During the day, the sitting area is filled with natural light with two inviting leather sofas to curl up with a good book, watch the Smart TV or simply take in those peaceful views.

Why not make the most of them on warmer nights with a cold glass of wine in your private garden?

With thoughtful décor, storage space and a dressing table, you'll feel right at home in the super-king-size bedroom to crawl under the sheets and catch your rest.

You'll find the popular Village Maid gastro pub in the village of Lound, as well as The Mardle Café & Bakery for breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea; Somerleyton Hall is a fine, Victorian stately home just south of The Lookout with a stunning park.

Take a short drive into Hopton-on-Sea for plenty of shops and eateries to choose from; bring your towels for a day by the sea along the sandy beach, with the small village of Corton nearby for another sandy spot to soak up the sun.
