  • "We loved our stay, it was lovely to get away and just chill out and forget about busy lives back home."

    The cottage had everything we needed and Cindy and Paul were great hosts. Not only did they make us feel welcome but they made our dog feel at home too. Would love to come back. And will recommend to friends and family.

  • "We had an amazing holiday and would love to come back again."

    Watching all the birds from the comfort of the sofa was wonderful. The cottage was spotless and very comfortable, as it is wheelchair friendly there is loads of space to move around. Thank you for making us feel so welcome and the scones were very tasty.

  • "The accommodation was really comfortable and clean."

    Host was so helpful and the garden just exceeded anything that could be described. So many different kinds of birds and the bird feeders constantly kept full. Somedays we could have just sat and enjoyed the birds and the large pond just down the path. We left feeling so refreshed.

  • "Kingfisher cottage is in a great location centrally in East Anglia so drive to most of the coast is about an hour away."

  • "Holiday was good."

    Only issue was unexpected addition of an extra £10 on total cost after I’d paid full price as advertised. As it was a late booking I had to pay the extra to get contact details of property and there was no opportunity to ring to discuss as nobody answering phones. Very shoddy practice by Sykes. The cottage was as advertised and we had a lovely week.

  • "Cindy and Paul were very welcoming."

    The cottage isn't cramped at all and it's in lovely, peaceful surroundings with open aspect onto a wildlife pond where we watched so many different types of birds. It's equipped with everything you could possibly need and more (even a pack of cards) and all in all we had a very relaxing stay and were well placed to explore the Suffolk countryside. Thanks to the labradoodles for adding to the welcome! We'll be back.
