  • "There seemed to be a lot of rules to adhere to but we loved the house and location"

  • "A lovely place to stay."

    Bigger than it looks in the pictures. Everything we needed, though an instruction manual for the microwave would have been useful. Very quiet and peaceful. Watered the herbs and had fresh oregano in scrambled eggs. Handy for Southwold and Aldeburgh, Leiston Abbey is worth a visit. The downside was too many artificial flowers and the kettle needs a good descale.

  • "The property is a fantastic holiday home, lovely, comfortable and spacious as well as being well equipped."

    I think there are a few issues that need sorting, some of which look to have been suggested before in the holiday book such as; the patio doors having hooks to stop them blowing back in any gusts of wind (when you have young children especially this is a concern they'll get their fingers trapped etc), when you turn the showers on the pressure is so high initially the head shoots up and soaks the bathrooms (although once you've wrangled it the shower pressure is nice), the shower doors don't close properly so they leak, and the bath has a constant slow trickle of water that you cannot stop. The tap in the utility has only a trickle of water coming out. Aside from those maintenance issues, I would highly recommend this property as it really is fantastic and close to so many wonderful places.

  • "Layout and space of the holiday property is great and so well stocked with kitchen equipment particularly."

    The children loved having different toys to play with as well. Beds were so comfy, could just do with heavier lines curtains to stop early wake ups but only a minor point. Really well positioned for exploring the Suffolk coast.

  • "The house perfect for our needs ."

    It was very well equipped and the fact you provided a cot, high chair and stair gate was a real bonus. We were very happy staying at Meadowsweet and would happily recommend to friends and family.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Meadowsweet House."

    Such a lovely, welcoming and well equipped holiday home, in a wonderful position, with a super field/meadow outlook in between Southwold and Walberswick. We’ve already put a deposit down for next year ! Many thanks.

    When we arrived the door key was missing, so we couldn’t get in a recently bought perishable food was in a hot car. Of the two numbers we had for you the first wasn’t answered and the second was for another holiday company.

    Interesting village church and location good for walks and visiting Southwold.

  • "Wonderful holiday cottage in a lovely location."

    The property provided all we needed as a large family group for the weekend and then a good base for the local nature reserves in Suffolk.

    Reviewed by Pam5.0May 2023

  • "The house is beautiful & in a lovely location."

    However the showers are almost unusable due to the excessive water pressure (the shower head goes upwards & unable to angle it downwards). Whilst the property looked clean, on closer viewing there was dirty marks on my bedroom table which I was able to clean off. When I retrieved my dogs ball from under the lounge bureau it came out covered in dust/hair etc. Some pans/trays still had food residue on. There are too many trays etc in the kitchen cupdoard, making it difficult to find what you need. The glasses were dull with water marks on the rims (not used rinse aid & left to dry in dishwasher)? Could do with some up to date tourism leaflets. Sorry to find some fault, maybe trivial but worth mentioning, despite which we had a great time in the property.

  • "This was our 4th stay at Meadowsweet and it never disappoints :) The house is clean, comfortable, very well equipped and more spacious than the photos can show."

    There is plenty of space for all guests to relax and the garden is very secure if you have a dog. It is ideally located for the area with lovely walks available on your doorstep too, and very quiet. Thoroughly recommended, and thanks again for another lovely stay.

About the location


Southwold 1 mile.

The village of Reydon is adjoined to Southwold, one of north Suffolk's most beautiful and popular seaside towns. The market town of Southwold is known for its iconic whitewashed working lighthouse, restored pier, brightly coloured beach huts and the harbour where you can purchase freshly caught fish for your tea. The areas surrounding Reydon and Southwold offer many places to visit, whilst walkers, cyclists, and bird watchers can enjoy the beautiful Suffolk Heritage Coastline with unspoilt heath lands and nature reserves including RSPB Minsmere. The nearby fashionable seaside town of Aldeburgh offers independent shops and galleries and along the seafront is Moot Hall, home to its museum and The Scallop, an interlocking sculpture dedicated to Benjamin Britten. Two miles from Aldeburgh is Thorpeness where you can spend a day boating on the magical Century Meare with its Peter Pan themed islands. Both the cities of Ipswich and Norwich are within easy driving distance.
