“Rose Cottage was difficult to find as the sign for it was covered with overgrown hedging.”
On arrival I had to: clean the fridge (sticky food stuff on the door seal. There was also brown sticky marks on the shelf supports, the veg boxes and underneath them. The microwave was equally dirty and rusty. The washing machine was disgusting with black water sitting in the door seal as well as black marks covering the door seal. The shower was a mixed tap fed shower, which are always difficult to control, however, the shower head was badly fixed to the wall making adjustment and control impossible, the flow is gunged up, the shower head needs descaling, preferably replacing. The windows were dirty, especially the patio doors in the sitting room, which were badly marked, presumably due to the overflow pipe which was dripping (which would stop after flushing the toilet!). There are no instructions for using the TV. Some general information for when to put the bins out for the collection day and where to park the car plus local knowledge would have been helpful. It would have been nice to have had a small bistro table and chairs for use in the garden, which was not quite as delightful as mentioned in your description of the garden! I have previously booked holiday cottages through Sykes Cottages but this was a disappointing experience as far as the cleanliness and utility of the accommodation is concerned. On a positive note, the main bedroom was comfortable as was the bed. Rose Cottage has so much potential being situated in a peaceful village. It is such a pity that maintenance of this property is so poor. Jacqui Bradshaw

“Directions were wrong, someone without a SatNav.”
would have trouble finding the place,we asked twice and the people didn’t know where it was. Heater in the kitchen didn’t work or the bathroom one,shower head was hanging down,my husband had to fix it. Iron in kitchen but no ironing board. Not a place to go when it is really cold,we couldn’t use the conservatory to eat as it was so cold,only a little table to eat off in the lounge. No fuel for the open fire which was advertised in the write up. Beds very comfortable and good heating in the bedrooms. Mobile signal poor,most people like WiFi.

About the location
Southwold 15 miles; Ipswich 22 miles; Lowestoft 25 miles.
Saxmundham is a small market town located on the River Fromus, in the heart of Suffolk’s Heritage Coast. The town is well serviced with independent shops, local museum, supermarkets and a train station, as well as art galleries, a weekly market and a farmers’ market. Situated so close to the coast, Saxmundham is a great base for a seaside holiday; within easy reach of Aldeburgh and Thorpeness, as well as Dunwich, Southwold and Walberswick, you could enjoy a different coastal location each day. Also close by is the inland market town Framlingham with beautiful historic architecture, a castle and an array of independent shops. South of the town there is the well known tourist destination of Sutton Hoo, an ancient Royal Anglo-Saxon burial site. With Ipswich an easy drive south, and Norwich an easy drive north, there’s so much to see and do in and around Saxmundham.
