  • "We always love Lapwings."

    Such a beautiful house and well equipped and clean. We are having our house locally decorated so perfect to stay at Lapwings. Unfortunately and not Lapwings fault the next door neighbours we think are renting their house to rather noisy people who come in late and leave early morning.

  • "Lapwings was a lovely holiday home, very clean, fresh and comfortable."

    Everything you need is provided (apart from a pen/pencil!). Really good location with supermarkets, high street and seafront close by. One suggestion would be to provide a non-slip bath size mat in bath instead of a shower size - much safer. Would definitely recommend this holiday home.

    It was immaculate. Everything was top class ,the beds and bedding so comfortable.The Garden was well kept and a pleasure to sit in . We could walk easily to shops and beach .Can recommend visiting Snape Maltings and also the Green Man for lovely meals. Our weekend was over too soon.

  • "Great little place to stay."

    Very clean and well maintained. Particularly liked having a garden space and really nicely landscaped. One thing to watch out for - the bath is narrow and I did slip and as my foot rushed from under me I banged my toe against the plug cover. It is very sharp! Toe was bruised for a few days but fortunately not too bad. I can't recommend highly enough to use the shower mat! If I had lost my balance more it could have been very nasty.

    Nothing missing, all in good order and clean as a whistle with a high level of comfort. Cannot recommend more highly.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Lapwings which was truly a ‘home from home’ and provided everything we needed in a holiday rental."

    The garden was lovely and we enjoyed relaxing in the sun after a day exploring. Its location close to shops and within walking distance of the beach and town made it an ideal base. There are lots of interesting places to visit nearby particularly Sutton Hoo and RSPB Minsmere. Highly recommended!

  • "Extremely clean and comfortable."

    Sadly I was taken ill during the stay and had to be hospitalised. We were very sorry to have to curtail our holiday but will definitely book Lapwings again at some point in the future. John (the owner) was very helpful when we contacted him

  • "We have already left a note on maintenance needed on 3 points on the property for the caretaker."

    A very peaceful and comfy property and very convenient to walk into Aldeburgh and the supermarkets. Our only disappointment was a lack of a cafeteria for making coffee so we had to buy one( we don’t like instant coffee)

    2 things but nor a criticism, no toilet brush and a small towel rail by the sink in the bathroom would be handy.

    As regular visitors to Aldeburgh it was really nice to have a quiet courtyard location with added advantage of parking and a garden which is unusual. We enjoyed our stay.

    It is clean, modern and comfortable. Everything you need for a relaxing holiday. Easy walking distance into Aldeburgh. We have stayed on three occasions at Lapwings so far and hope to stay again. You can also do a lovely circular walk to Thorpeness and back. Thank you.
