  • "The cottage was lovely and very welcoming."

    It was spacious and the beds were very comfortable. The cottage was very well equipped with everything you would need on holiday. We will definitely return.

    Thank you for your kind comments. We are very glad you enjoyed the cottage and Aldeburgh. Property Owner

  • "When we arrived all was good so we both went out to the garden without our two dogs just to check that the garden area was secure ."

    we found that the two gates on either side of the garden were open so we shut them then let the dogs out . all was good for the next couple of days . we did see that the bin for the rubbish had been removed but the gates were then closed . on our last night we came in at about 4.30 pm let the dogs out and I then picked up the black bag to put out and then I found that there was both gates wide open and one of our dogs was missing . my self and me wife then started to shout out for our dog and could not see her anywhere . at the end of the houses to the right there was an alleyway to the main road so we both went down the alleyway to the front of the house which is on a main road . I went to the right and my wife went to the left and while my wife was looking she saw our dog at the edge of the road so she shouted for her to stay and she did so my wife was able to get her and bring our dog back . both of the neighbours knew that we had dogs as they had seen them so why they left the door open . my wife was in bits all night thinking what could of happened . we put our comments in their book at the property stating that we would never come back to stay at this property . if they can’t guarantee that the gates are closed the they should have another gate put up at the end of the patio where there is a wall in place and then this could be locked and you could let your dogs out into this safe area before they go into the main garden. I do believe that all dog owners and parents with small children should be aware of this problem .

    Thank you for your feedback. We are very sorry that you had a traumatic experience with your dog. As parents and dog owners ourselves, we have tried to consider and mitigate as many safety aspects as possible; we have certainly never had any issues. The curse of bin day at holiday lets is something that is very difficult to manage and the traipsing through of recycling can mean that some neighbours leave gates open as they go back and forth. It's just a quick look out of the back door before letting children or furry friends run out. We hope, otherwise, you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

    Our second time this year at Somewhere only we know, we visited in may then again in September, we had an enjoyable stay both time’s, it’s so handy for everything, the cottage is comfortable & the garden is great for the dog’s, we did have a problem this time with the shower, the hot water was scolding & we couldn’t turn it down, we reported it & unfortunately it needed a new part so we managed with bath’s, other than that we had a great time visiting Thorpeness Orford & Southwold, we will return,

    Hi Veronica, thank you for choosing Somewhere Only We Know for your holiday to Aldeburgh again. We are very pleased that you enjoy the location and house. Thank you for proactively reporting the issue with the shower, so often people leave it until after their stay to say anything and it is difficult to rectify. Unfortunately, due to requiring a new thermostat, it did take us a couple of days to fix by which time you had left us. We hope you will be able to join us again and enjoy your new shower!

  • "We stayed for a weekend just before most schools break up."

    Getting the key was smooth and trouble free.We found it clean, comfortable and very nicely decorated. The kitchen is stylish and equipped with everything you would need for your stay. The bathroom (which is on the ground floor) is modern and has both a bath and a very good shower. There’s a long, narrow and rather featureless garden with patio and lawn. The location is very practical if not particularly picturesque. It’s just a ten minute stroll to the seafront. We had no problem parking right outside the property while we coming and going. For shopping there is a Co-op very close by. I was going to list some criticisms but then they were so trivial I thought they looked a bit silly so I deleted most of them. Elderly or very young guests might find the stairs a bit steep. It might make sense to have the Wi-Fi password on a sign in the kitchen rather than slightly buried in the property information file.

  • "The cottage was very well equipped, with everything you need."

    The cottage is located just a 10 minute walk to the sea front. We enjoyed a very peaceful week in the cottage and would consider returning if staying in Aldeburgh again.
