  • "Barn Owl Cottage was lovely clean and warm."

    We received a lovely friendly welcome, on arrival, plus a welcome pack. The grounds with a pond, swans, ducks, and marsh meadows, with cut walk ways,was excellent. But we would say do take your water boots, for the walks in the meadows. The Lion, the local Pub has very good meals, and is Dog friendly. We had a very relaxing stay, and would certainly stay there again. Marg Barry and our dog Dixie

  • "Problems with the heating not resolved until the day we left (1day early due to work), kettle which dribbled boiling water which was replaced with one which died so 2 days without a servicable one."

    When bed is made into double access is poor. I don't particulalry like the area but my wife does so we will be back later in the year. Very windy so I manged to get 3-1000piece jigsaws done in a week. Having lived in suffolk most of my life I rarely visited the East Coast as it has an air of faded gentility and hasn't yet arrived in the 20th century let alone the 21st. Shingle 'beaches' are not to my or my dog's taste, nor is the 10 mile drive to the coast from the awful A12.

  • "The cottage was very welcoming, warm and comfortable."

    All facilities were there, but we noticed a lot of pet hairs on the living room floor and on both rugs. The WiFi, which is becoming essential, was very poor. The password given in the cottage manual did not work for a connection. The welcome pack was a very nice gesture and greatly appreciated. One thing the really stood out for us was the lack of any sort of greeting from the owners, there was a contact number given but that does not mean as much as a face to face with our hosts. we left our comments in the visitor book but for our "complaints" we left a separate note.

  • "Great location, very tranquil and relaxing."

    The cottage was extremely comfortable, very clean and well equipped with everything you need, with views over the splendid lawns and lake. The owners had left us milk, bread and biscuits which was very kind of them. The grounds were superb and well kept and our dog, Annie, thoroughly enjoyed the holiday as well being able to run free around the grounds and in the meadow. Very dog friendly. Would definitely recommend.
