    The lodge is so peaceful and quiet, set in amazing countryside. The whole place feels warm and cosy, with all the amenities you could need. The host went above and beyond to accommodate for us, even giving us some extra things we'd forgotten to bring which was amazing. Thank you so much for an amazing stay!

  • "It's such a beautiful lodge but the bed was super uncomfortable so we didn't sleep well and spent a lt of time in agony."

    Also there was a big gap in the hedge leading to the main road so garden wasn't secure as advertised. However those 2 things aside, it was wonderful. They had everything you needed. The lodge was beautifully maintained, the fire and whirlpool bath were also fabulous. If they get a new bed we'd come back.

    The lodge is stunning, immaculately clean, and very cosy. It's so well insulated that, even in February (2024) we turned the heating off completely and opened the front doors. Our 2 dogs loved the wrap-around garden and we felt at ease knowing the periphery fencing was completely secure. There were plenty of dog-friendly places to visit, including The Poacher's Pocket bar and restaurant - where the food was wonderful. We would definitely stay here again.

  • ""Excellent accommodation in a lovely spot - beautifully quiet" I decided to book last minute (about 2 weeks before) a NY break for me, my husband, my brother & partner I came across this lodge & immediately loved the look of it, the location looked perfect & was perfect with a short driving distance to a few local places including Sizewell Beach, Saxmundham, Aldeburgh, Southwold and Walberswick to name but a few."

    The lodge was extremely well equipped with everything you would need for a short break. There were also lots of extra's including, tea, coffee, milk, dog bowls (we bought two doggies) kitchen cleaning products which weren't expected, along with a complimentary bottle of fizz & a box of Thornton chocolates! The lodge was very warm & comfortable, we didn't need to light the log fire as it was quite mild but I'm sure when lit it would give of that lovely warm & cosy feeling. All of our party except myself tried the whirl pool bath & said how lovely it was. My only constructive criticism would be some more lighting to the side of the property where the wishing well is as when we arrived it was dark & we couldn't see much (Sue did message me to say we could check in earlier than 5pm as the lodge was ready so wouldn't have been a problem if we had have arrived in some day light) other than that it was the perfect quite, quaint spot for celebrating our New Year.

    The lodge was extremely well equipped with everything we needed, very clean, warm and comfortable! There were also lots of added extras such as tea, coffee, milk, dog bowls, bin bags, soap, washing up liquid etc that we were not expecting! The whirl pool bath and log fire were also an added bonus after exploring the local beaches such as Southwold, Thorpness and Aldeburgh. Indeed, the location was perfect, quiet, private and secluded, while being within eaay reach of beaches, walks and towns. We met the owners once, who were lovely and extremely helpful-nothing was too much trouble and they made us feel very welcome! We would definitely return to Acorn Lodge in warmer months to experience the outside secluded garden, which included a fire pit, BBQ and table/chairs etc (It was also totally secure for our dog, being fenced off and enclosed) Acorn lodge was one of the best places we have ever stayed and we would highly recommend it! 10 out of 10.. we will definitely be returning!

    We stay in holiday cottages all over the UK at least three times a year and it is very rare to find a cottage so well equiped. The location is superb provided you like a totally rural retreat accessed down single carriageway country lanes. Access to both Aldeburgh and Southwold is easy with some excellent pubs and restaurants plus some lovely country/seaside walks are nearby.

  • "We had booked so we could take our dog with us and it was described as dog friendly, which, with regard to things provided, it was."

    However, our dog liked to get in the shade under the laurel bush and started to chew a fallen twig. We looked it up on the internet and found laurel contains toxins so had to watch her all the time she was in the garden. Perhaps clients should be made aware of this? The lodge is in a lovely quiet setting. Unfortunately for us, the farm across the way was doing some work which necessitated a lot of loud banging and clanging so not really peaceful during the day. Some of the cooking items need to be frying pan minus a lot of the non stick coating Overall though we would recommend the lodge.

    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.

    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.
