  • "In the heart of Aldeburgh, lose to the shops and beach it was a perfect place to stay for our annual get-together."

    Plenty of room for 6 with everything that we needed. Even bags of ice in the freezer!! Highly recommend and will definitely be returning.

  • "Great location."

    There was a lovely vase of flowers on the table when we arrived - looked like they were picked from some one's garden - very beautiful.

  • "Nice cottage, great location, spacious, good facilities and comfortable."

    Cleanliness however let the place down a wee bit for example finger marks on glass surfaces, splashes on kitchen unit doors and one of the WCs wasn’t as clean as it should have been. A couple of other points: there was a lack of sharp kitchen knives and no cloths for cleaning purposes, however these were minor points which didn’t detract from our stay.

  • "Property was great."

    Location perfect with bonus of off road parking and sunny garden. Bedrooms and bathrooms great along with kitchen. Plenty of crockery and glasses. Only issues were that we didn't find the lounge furniture very comfortable and not sure it would suit 6 people. Would also gave been great to have milk as part of welcome pack. That said I'd there were just 2 of us we will definitely go back.

  • "The cottage is very well equipped however, there are some areas do need improvement: the chairs in the sitting room are very warn, uncomfortable and too low."

    The kitchen chairs are also extremely uncomfortable with very sharp edges. We had a serious problem with the shower control upstairs. It is so stiff that when we turned it on we could only got boiling hot water. It was impossible to achieve any cold water mix. We called the maintenance people out who effectively jammed it into a middle position, but the whole unit needs replacing. The location of the cottage is ideal. We thought the instructions that we had to strip all of our own beds, which we did, was perhaps a little bit beyond the expectations of an elderly couple who have already paid nearly £900 for a week. We did follow all of the instructions, including putting the bins out on Sunday night. I noticed that nobody had done this before as the main refuse bin was completely stuffed with multiple old rubbish bags. I don’t know whether you expected your cleaner to be dealing with this, but clearly Nobody was putting the bins out. Perhaps some of our criticisms are linked with our age, the extremely low chairs are very difficult to get out of for someone with back issues or one who’s had joint replacement, but I don’t think anyone other than Hercules would be able to adjust the frozen shower control upstairs! The beds were okay, but seem to have some ridges in the middle. Most of the pillows were far too firm. Luckily we brought our own pillows.
