  • "Delightful stay in Bunny Cottage."

    Perfect for the 2 of us for New Year. Loved the Christmas tree and other welcoming touches. Very well equipped and comfortable. All spotlessly clean - excellent location near beach, High Street and restaurants/pubs. Parking straightforward.

  • "It was in a great location and the kitchen was well equipped."

    The log burner was fantastic. However the photos completely misrepresent the space and light. It was so small dark and pokey . I was so disappointed when I opened the front door. Had I known this I wouldn’t have booked it and it led to a less enjoyable Christmas than I had hoped for. The upstairs was ok. I had the small bedroom- nowhere to hang clothes and the rings in the bottom draw of the chest kept coming off. The bathroom was ok - a bit dingy to be honest and I had to wedge something under the bathroom plug so that the bath water could drain away. I’m very disappointed by the misrepresentation of the inside - it was nowhere near as nice as it was portrayed on your website and I certainly won’t be returning to Bunny Cottage. I doubt I’d recommend Sykes either as I think the way you portray properties is dishonest.

    The facilities in the cottage are first class and couldn’t have a better location for high street and beach.

  • "Bunny cottage is perfectly located in Aldeburgh and whilst car parking could be an issue in peak season there are many options which should allow free parking."

    The property itself wants for nothing and is fitted out to a high standard with white goods, furniture and linens, all adding to the Great feel of the place which is 'tardis' like on the inside with 2 fine bedrooms , a study ,lovely lounge and dining kitchen, with bathroom, ensuite and cloakroom and then the sundeck with Seaview. We have said that in East Anglia Bunny Cottage is hard to better and truly well presented.

  • "Bunny Cottage is very comfortable,and well equipment in the kitchen,only thing missing was a small kitchen knife."

    The roof Terrance is a great place to sit in theism and have breakfast ,most morning's . We would come back again . Great restaurants in Aldeburgh,would recommend the Regatta ,also lunch at the Wentworth on a rainy afternoon .

    Thank you for your kind comments. We had a small knife there but it developed legs or made its way into the bin, I have done that before when prepping a pile of salad. Glad you enjoyed Regatta as it was run by us before and it is nice they are keeping up the good work, I hope to see you again soon Rob, Jo and Anita. Property Owner

    It had everything we could have wished for and more. It was stylish, luxurious and comfortable too. Also convenient for High Street and beach. Plenty of information and leaflets. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • "I have listed your details as inaccurate regarding parking."

    Your details stated that parking was outside but in reality the was only limited parking time. Outside the cottage was limited to 2 hours, then we would have to move the vehicle. The car park opposite was limited to 4 hours, both of which was between 8.00am and 6.00 pm. If we had known then I would have looked for a property with a parking space even if it was cost a little extra. Most days we were looking at the time which spoilt our holiday as we could not fully relax.

    Thank you for your comments. The parking here is a problem at times but there are all day spaces near by. On the front there are lots but I wish you could have asked I could have explained. An Alternative is the car parks in front for £3 a day. Sorry it spoilt it for you. Property Owner

  • "Bunny Cottage is a sweet place to stay."

    It’s very well located just off the high street, it’s cosy and comfortable, and has everything you need. The kitchen is well-equipped, the beds are comfy, and having a shower as well as a bathroom is great, with excellent fluffy towels. Perhaps a non-slip mat would be a good addition. We had trouble getting the tv to work for normal channels! I fear I left my mobile phone charger in the living room, plugged in near the tv - it would be good to have it back if you find it.

The room is furnished to enable guests to enjoy a meal at home or relax in comfy sofas and chairs watching the flat-screen TV with DVD player or listening to the music on the iPod with docking station provided.

The kitchen area is nicely divided from the sitting/dining area with a partition wall. Kitchen A key feature of this stylish room is the bespoke hand made kitchen units with granite worktops, which conceal the Neff washing machine, dryer, and dishwasher.

The beauty of the cottage’s location is you are within walking distance of both the shops and the beach, so head out for the day with a picnic basket and a bucket and spade and you’re good to go.
