  • "The West Ring looked great in the photos and the location ideal for where we wished to visit."

    The layout was great for a group booking and initially all looked to be fine, however it shortly became clear that a lot needed to be improved. Note: I have booked a lot of properties with Sykes over the years and can confirm that the standard of this property was suboptimal as described below: - The welcome gift of wine and biscuits was not provided. - The pots and pans had to be cleaned before we could use them, some having burnt on food. The pans in the oven were in the same state. There was a rusty colander. - Lots of mugs and plates were chipped. - The dishwasher didn't clean properly due to dirty filters and clogged spinners and had to be cleaned. - The power socket to the left of the patio window in the twin room was loose and not flush to the wall. - The garden side of the house has four patio doors of which only two could be opened and these could also do with attention. The other two doors and windows could not be opened due to lack of keys. - The patio is also in need of attention with weeds growing everywhere. - Towels and bed linen were of very poor standard, thin, ripped and frayed. Originally white but were grey and unpleasant. - The games room/garage had not been cleaned in a long time and was not a great place to spend any time. - The house was advertised as providing BBQ facilities, but these proved to be old, dirty and rusty. - The garage contained a water filter/ conditioner unit. Again it was extremely dirty both inside and out. - The washing machine again dirty. So much so that we did not use it. - The snug has two settees, both well past their best and uncomfortable. One has lost its base structure so that when you sit in it you struggle to see over the arms to see the TV and it's hard to get up from. It is a shame as the house could be nice and is situated in a lovely village. This is the basis of the review I plan to provide.

  • "What a stunning property with amazing artwork which we all loved."

    Great location, everything we needed was available especially kitchen items for all ten of us. A lovely warm welcome with the heating on and the log burner was used to make it even more cosy. Thank you for our stay

  • "Beautiful house, perfect for the 10 of us."

    The grounds were amazing, the photos just don’t do it justice. Brilliant location for exploring Dunwich and Southwold. Would highly recommended!

Come bedtime, guests can choose from five bedrooms; all are well-appointed and offer a relaxing sanctuary of calm after a hard day of holidaying.

Middleton is a picturesque village which is worth exploring with the beautiful seaside towns of Southwold and Aldeburgh also nearby so pack your bucket and spade and head out for the day.

Take a stroll in Dunwich Forest and if you enjoy birdwatching then a visit to RSPB Minsmere is a must.
