  • "Quiet,peaceful location but lots to see and do in the area"

  • "This was the best holiday let we have stayed in."

    It was immaculately clean, the beds were extremely comfortable and the whole property was warm and homely, having everything you could need for a break. Our dog loved mooching around the garden. Parking is on site, close to the property. It was so peaceful as well but close enough to visit the coast. It’s located in a beautiful area.

    The cabin was delightful with all that's needed. Spa bath was a treat ! Enclosed area for a dog was reassuring. As we stayed in a Winter month we found the TV could be updated. Only gripe was the bed wasn't the most comfortable. We would def recommend and return if n the area.

  • "We arrived at the cottage which we found very easy to find with the instructions given and the post code gets you to the owners house anyway."

    On arriving, all the welcome packs of Coffee, Tea, Jams etc were fantastic. The log burner was so easy to use and very very effective. Acorn Cottage is a fantastic example of how a holiday cottage should be presented, There was nothing that we would have added or taken away. It is situated in a brilliant location to explore Sizewell, Thorpeness, Aldeburgh, Snape Maltings and other areas. We also took a trip to Great Yarmouth. To take the dog for a walk on the beach before breakfast was just fantastic. We loved all the fresh fish we bought on the beach at Aldeburgh and the town was just delightful.

  • "NB have given accuracy of listing only a smile rather than a grin because the Lodge was even nicer than it looked on the website!"

    We had a most enjoyable few days here, just before Christmas, and were delighted to find a warm and cosy place, decorated for the season. Everything was immaculate. We would love to go again in spring or summer, to do more exploring round and about as it makes an excellent base for seeing Suffolk. We found it a very calm, peaceful and relaxing place to be. Thank you for making our stay so pleasant.

    We thought that the garden was a huge asset and benefit to us as the owner of a large, very active dog, she absolutely loved it, and we did too, as eating alfresco in the summer evenings is one of our favourite things to do!! Acorn Lodge is situated in such beautiful and peaceful surroundings and is a great base for some lovely walks and trips to all that Suffolk has to offer!

  • "We were a little surprised that we were not able to access the property until 5pm."

    That seems quite late, especially after a long journey and meant hanging around in the local area until we could get in. We understand that extra cleaning is involved for Covid reasons, however we have stayed at other places during this time and have still been able to access it after 3.30 and 4.00, as 2 examples. By limiting access until after 5pm then the whole day is spent waiting to access the property and it became late to be unpacking and settling in. The accommodation is in a lovely, peaceful area.

  • "Acorn Lodge is in a beautiful location and the cottage itself is very well appointed, it has almost all you could need ( bring your own hairdryer) The owner is very welcoming and helpful to this very lovely place, we loved the outside space so peaceful and almost all you hear is the birds."

    We would definitely recommend this property and the surrounding area which is new to us. The coastline is beautiful as are the coastal towns and most businesses are open, but some pubs and restaurants seem still to be offering only takeaways on certain days. This in part seems to be because of a monopoly in the area of a curtain chain. We are enjoying our relaxing break and would come back to this part of the world. The only drawback Is that the wi-fi is not adequate and we have like most people have come to rely on it when visiting a new area. That said it has in no way detracted from our enjoyment of our holiday. If you have an iPhone you can connect to the internet by bringing your iPhone close to your device for temporary Connection.

    Very well equipped, very clean, quiet with much valued privacy. Bird song in the mornings and evenings was lovely. The garden is well fenced for dogs. Exciting to see hares on our walks in the lanes and tracks near the lodge. This holiday let is in the top two that we have stayed in over a number of years. It is just two or three miles from Saxmundham which has a Waitrose and a Tesco, and close to the Suffolk coast. Highly recommended.

    Set in a rural location yet near enough for nearby places of interest, the lodge offers extreme comfort and all the facilities normally required whilst holidaying. It is obvious that the self build lodge undertaken by the owners has had no expense spared whist under construction and that manifests itself also in the extremely pleasant furnishings provided inside. Acorn Lodge is a truly magnificent property and we would highly recommend as a base for visitors to the lovely county of Suffolk. J&J (Sheffield)

  • "Wonderful lodge in a quiet area, with a warm welcome."

    Furnished to a high standard and with good quality linen. Secluded and fenced garden makes it perfect for dogs. Kitchen was well appointed although missing a washing machine at the expense of a (very useful) dishwasher. There was no casserole dish, but all the usual items were present. For a luxury cabin that could easily be used for a week away from civilisation, the fridge was very small in my opinion. Bathroom was well appointed but lacking in storage space - a shelf or two might help. Livign area was superb - good furntiture and a tv with radio built in. A foot stool may be a helpful addition to help when relaxing. Bedrooms were faultless - great mattresses and linen, plenty of storage space. Great nights sleep. Plugs to charge phones just behind bedside tables, and a great mobile signal & internet. Great hosts, great cabin and I very much look forward to returning.

    My son and I normally do B&Bs for our walking holidays but could find nothing available nor suitable for our needs and that of our dog. We therefore decided to rent a cottage instead. What a great decision. When we got back from a full day's walking, it was warm and comfortable, there was plenty of hot water for a restorative bath and it was easy to get our outdoor clothes dry. On the one day when the weather was truly awful, Acorn Lodge was a lovely place just to lounge in, read our books and generally relax. The kitchen was also really well-equipped so it was easy to make the obligatory cooked breakfast. All in all we couldn't find fault and would recommend Acorn Lodge to anyone as an excellent place from which to explore this fascinating part of the UK.

    Small details such as milk in the fridge, tea/coffee, jams, dog bowls & treats made all the difference and we felt welcome from the moment we arrived. The whole garden is well fenced making it safe and secure, perfect for both dogs and small children. The cottage has been finished to a high quality and is brand new! Being at the end of a quiet lane on the edge of farmland this makes for a peaceful, rural holiday with a network of public footpaths right from the front door but within a short drive to many Suffolk attractions such as Framlingham & Orford castles, beaches galore and the gorgeous seaside towns Aldeburgh & Southwold. The owners of Acorn Lodge greeted us across the fence, as we arrived the property is within the grounds of their house) and were unobtrusive throughout whilst being on hand had we needed them. Overall a very relaxing holiday - just what we needed.
