  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Rose cottage and were grateful they could accommodate us at the last minute as our other accommodation was cancelled due to unforseen circumstances."

    The cottage was very clean, warms up really quickly, the garden is lovely, as is the location next to the pub and lots of foot paths for dog walking. It was lovely to heave the welcoming gifts as well as bowls, treats and towels for the dog.

    Thank you for your response and we are pleased that you had a good time, please visit us again one day. Property Owner

  • "Parking was a bit difficult Both the Bed and Sofas were not comfortable so put you off returning to the cottage"

    Parking has now been agreed with the pub next door for people who have more difficulty, our beds and sofas are less than a year old so we find these comments confusing however you did explain in your email to me that you suffered with a bad back so expect most of these items would be difficult unless orthopaedic ones. Sorry you felt this way about your break. Property Owner

  • "Rose Cottage is a lovely, quirky little house with a gorgeous garden."

    We found it well equipped for our needs and did not make use of some of the gadgets in the kitchen. The fridge is a little small, but it suits the kitchen. All slept well in the very comfy beds but cheering sparrows early in the morning were not appreciated! If you are tall, this cottage is not recommended unless you would like a few bumps to the head. Also the downstairs bathroom was awkward for those of us needing to use it in the middle of the night! We truly enjoyed our stay in Rose Cottage, a really good base for exploring the Suffolk coast and a few lovely walks around the village.

  • "The cottage was beautifully quaint, but the low beams were troublesome for my tall husband."

    The garden however, more than made up for that, it was beautiful, calming and quiet. It had plenty of areas to sit, either in full sun or shade. Our dog spent most of her time out there. The village is only a short drive away from amenities and places to visit, and the pub next door was beautifully presented, were very amenable and had quiet clientele. They will soon be serving food which will be big bonus for future cottage rentals.
