  • "Perfect for us…."

    My husband, my son and myself. Spotlessly clean, lots of thought given to include, for example, a sewing kit in one of the drawers!! Loved the table and chairs outside… had many a coffee and a relax there! The garden was lovely and the birds … including an owl one night regularly visited. We will return as the cottage was ideally located for everything. Honestly the cottage was lovely, very tastefully furnished to make our stay relaxed. We cannot fault it. Thankyou

  • "A lovely little cottage, well-equipped, comfortable and located in a peaceful village."

    Heating very efficient, though a stove in the lounge would be a welcome improvement to make it cosy for guests in colder months. A non-slip mat for use in the bath when showering would be useful and a word of warning about the tightly winding staircase might be helpful, as they are a bit tricky to negotiate with a full suitcase!

  • "An excellent property, very clean and well presented."

    Interior was stylish, modern, homely and uncluttered. The kitchen was well designed with all utensils, crockery etc anyone would need. The dining/seating area looking out to the garden and field beyond, was lovely as was the garden and lounge. Fluffy towels, very comfy beds, I could go on. The home owners have taken care with this property for us to enjoy. The parking was great too. The shower had been dismantled, I guess as the water pressure may be low but a lovely bathroom to enjoy a bath in. Great location for Snape Maltings, Orford, Aldeburgh, Saxmundham and Framlingham or further afield for a day out to Southwold.

    Thank you for your positive feedback. Glad you enjoyed our cottage. Apologies for the shower, the top of the knob is missing but the shower still functions. Sorry for the inconvenience. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful holiday cottage, immaculately clean, well equipped with quality kitchen utensils & equipment, extremely comfortable furnishings & beds."

    Very peaceful location. I have no criticism at all & i will certainly be back for a future holiday, if I were to request anything for my future holiday, it would be a small foot stall, I have a slight disability & would be a little more comfortable, but it would be no trouble to bring one with me. Many thanks for sharing your beautiful home.

    Thank you for your positive feedback, so glad that you enjoyed your time at our cottage. Property Owner

  • "Parking for the car was different but quite acceptable."

    Adequate kitchen utensils and crockery. In the small bathroom a shower cubicle would be better than a bath (no bath mat) with over shower. Generally a nicely presented cottage in a splendid area.

    Thank you for your response., but I think off road parking for 3 cars is more than quite acceptable. Many guests have commented on the plentiful supply of utensils & crockery. In addition a number of guests have commented stating that it is nice to have the option of a bath. Property Owner

  • "We really enjoyed our stay in the cottage in such a peaceful location, which we found very convenient for visiting many places of interest."

  • "There is a problem with no key for the front door."

    The cottage backs on to a farmers field. On our last night we were unable to use the back entrance to load our car. The farmer was using a watering system to water the potatoes and the spray was coming over half way up the garden path. We could not have used the entrance without becoming totally soaked. It had a very powerful spray. Also, it could be a fire risk if there is only one entrance!

  • "The cottage was very clean."

    There were lovely soft white towels to use and a kitchen pack of dishwasher tablets, jay-cloths, pan scourers and washing machine pods. Lovely peaceful place to stay with a lovely pub in walking distance for meals.

  • "A really lovely cottage in a tranquil location with views from the back garden over farmland."

    It was very relaxing sitting in the garden listening to the birds singing.

The property

Saxmundham 3.6 miles.

Settled into the quaint countryside village of Friston, near Aldeburgh, Suffolk, 2 Mosses Cottage is an ideal holiday base for a couple or small family looking to explore the coast and countryside of Suffolk.

Be welcomed into a beautiful cottage, where an open fire is settled into a traditional bare brick fireplace and warms the sitting room as you relax and plan the day ahead of you.

The kitchen/diner creates a space for you to rustle up a storm, enjoying your meal at the dining table.

2 Mosses Cottage houses two bedrooms, a double and a small double, and there is a first floor bathroom for your refreshment.

A beautiful garden accompanies this cottage, so dining alfresco is a must.

Friston is a rural village with its own pub, The Friston Chequers, historic church and access to countryside walks.

Within a short distance you can reach the town of Saxmundham, where there is a greater variety of eateries and convenience stores so you can stock up on essentials, as well as a local museum and countryside park.

Also within easy reach of the property is the coast of Suffolk, so why not head over to the fantastic town of Aldeburgh and browse the local independent shops along the fashionable high street before enjoying walks at the pebble beach, Snape path and Haven Nature Reserve.
