  • "Generally v clean but shower room could have been cleaner around the sink area and bottom of shower screen."

    There were no shelves or hooks in the shower room for towels or toiletries which was a bit awkward. Although it was a very pleasant stay the price charged was a lot compared with other properties available for a long weekend in January considering the basic nature of the internal space. We loved the open field, the privacy and view but the fencing is not secure for small/ medium sized dogs. Our dog managed to crawl under the fence at the back but we caught him before an escape was made! All places we have stayed at with Sykes have a folder of useful information about local facilities and walks in the area, there wasn’t one here which we missed. It was lovely to have a welcome gift for our dog which was appreciated. River Lodge was ideal for a long weekend and was conveniently walking distance of the supermarket and Aldeburgh itself.

  • "We have had a fantastic one week stay at River Lodge."

    What a peaceful place with beautiful views. The lodge is like a tardis. I managed to get our weeks worth of luggage all unpacked and neatly away. The bed was very comfy. The kitchen had everything we needed. The freezer was a good size for the space and really great for us as our dogs food is frozen. The TV was a nice little extra we weren’t expecting and we could get all freeview channels. The enclosed wrap around garden was huge and our dog loved it. The fencing is excellent and totally enclosed. The local area was lovely with lots of places to eat and plenty of fresh fish. A Tesco and coop in walking distance was really handy. Even with all of this on our doorstep we felt like we were in a very peaceful and private spot. We would certainly recommend and would love to return. An excellent holiday had by all, such a fantastic place.
