  • "Very nice cottage, compact and bijou."

    Very clean and finished to a high standard. Really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend.

  • "Very nice and set in a lovely rural location."

    The silence was palpable and we were blessed with clear nights and starry skies unpolluted by street lights. Despite the isolated feel, the delights of Aldeburgh, Orford and Thorpeness are a short drive away. The property was well equipped, in very good condition and sparkling clean. Could have done with a shower mat but otherwise couldn't fault the cottage. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

  • "This is an excellent addition and 'little gem' to what is on offer in Suffolk for single/couple with/without a dog."

    The charm has been perfectly pitched in an area of peace and calm only a couple of miles from Snape and Suffolk beyond. A thoughtful welcome pack worked to enhance the warmth. This is a new property and all the necessary amenities were provided. We stayed for a couple of nights but felt relaxed to wish we could have stayed longer. Well done, would not hesitate to recommend you and would definitely rebook.

  • "We loved our stay in the cute cottage."

    It had everything we could need for a couple of nights. It was super clean and organised. The well maintained and private outside space was a bonus as the weather was lovely.

    We were the first guests to stay at Admirals Cottage, it is absolutely lovely, you can really see the care and attention that has gone into making it a comfortable place to stay. It's in a perfect location for exploring the local area, and further afield. Aldeburgh, Southwold and Woodbridge are well worth a visit. We popped up to Yarmouth and Lowestoft as well. Neil was really helpful with some recommendations of places to eat, we had a nice bite to eat at The Duck, Campsea Ashe and popped into The Ramsholt Arms on our way home for lunch, again this was lovely. Only a few bit's of feedback, non are negative, just some observations. It would be good to have a little book telling guests the basic info like WiFi Password, which bin is which (we weren't sure if we could put glass in the recycling). We couldn't work out how to get the normal TV channels on the TV (not sure if that was actually possible LOL). The welcome hamper as lovely. Will definitely be recommending to friends and will be back for another visit soon.

    Thank you for your feedback. This is really helpful as we are new to holiday cottage letting. We will add instructions regarding the Wi-Fi, the external bins and the TV channels to our initial text message and place laminated instructions in the cottage Property Owner
