  • "A beautiful cottage, in a country location yet still convenient for getting out and about."

    Lovely area for walking too. The cottage has a lovely, large garden with bbq and outdoor table and chairs. It was our 5th visit, so I think that says a great deal. We will definitely return.

  • "We had a fabulous week at 1 Tunns cottages."

    The setting is lovely - so quiet and peaceful but just 15 minutes from Southwold, which was so lovely we went twice!! We enjoyed some great walks along the coast and rivers as well discovering some charming little places like Thorpeness, Beccles and Walberswick village & beach - would recommend Black Dog Deli for lunch! Really appreciated the beautiful peaceful garden - listen out for the cuckoo! Highly recommended!

  • "The cottage was well appointed with much appreciated welcome treats."

    The stairs were a challenge on the first night but soon mastered. We met the charming owners and had a lovely holiday. Thank you Martin and Hazel White.

  • "A lovely property."

    Nice big fluffy white towels were provided. The garden was great for sitting out in and keeping our 3 dogs safely contained, one of which is a renowned escape artist. I would stay here again.

  • "Charming and comfortable cottage with stunning scenery to front and side of property."

    The owners kindly left us welcoming gifts for ourselves and our pets. All were greatly appreciated. Cottage was very clean and so comfortable with a country cottage style garden. There was a large downstairs bathroom and also an upstairs toilet which came in very handy. Mud room was brilliant for those muddy dog paws and there’s a large downstairs room/cupboard opposite the bottom of the stairs which has your wardrobe space. Our only concern was the steepness of the stairs. Not for the faint hearted or the elderly. Lots of lovely places to visit within half hour drive of this property and 50 mins drive to see the seals up close at Horsey Gap beach. (Best day of our holiday). We highly recommend this beautiful cottage for a peaceful stay in the Suffolk almost Norfolk area and would happily return.

  • "Cottage was great, but lock on front door was not working, so could not lock from inside."

    Reported to owner but did not fix. Meant we had to sleep with door unlocked which was quite stressful - ended up sleeping on sofa so that family felt safe

    We did respond to you and I personally came down as soon as you called , to show you how the door worked. L.A.B Property Owner

  • "We had a thourghly good time at 1Tunns Cottage."

    The house is as described plus more which we didn't see mentioned on the description. There is an upstairs toilet and small sink and also a lean-to/mud/utility room on the back, great if you have dogs and wet clothes. The garden is great for dogs and very secure and the house is warm and comfortable. As stated the stairs are very steep and narrow but you get used to them quickly. One of the best things about the cottage is its location. When we looked on Google maps it appears to be 'in the middle on nowhere' and whilst that is true and good in terms of peace an quiet, Morrisons is only 8 minutes drive away, Lowestoft 20 mins, Southwold 25 mins, delivery services are good too - so it really is the best of all worlds. I would recommend it as a great space to see this beautiful part of the country.
