  • "A perfect location by the beautiful St Edmunds church and green."

    We have stayed in many holiday homes around the world, but this is without question the most beautiful and well maintained we have stayed in. A great location near everything SouthWold has to offer, meant we had a wonderful and memorable break.

  • "Even on a cold autumn day, the coziness of the house and wonderful open fire, meant we had a lovely & relaxing stay."

    We loved being able to walk into restaurants, pubs and shops - in particular the amazing Lord Nelson!

  • "A beautiful and well thought out house in a great location for the town and sea."

    We particularly liked the views out to the green and church, and our son loved his room which looked out towards the lighthouse

  • "We loved the interior design and attention to the small details, which made this a real home from home."

    Thankyou for the Prosecco & biscuits on arrival

  • "If I could choose one word to describe the cottage I’d say ‘tired’."

    For what we paid for it and our expectations based on the promo images we were disappointed. Clearly they were taken some time ago. Sitting Room - leatherette sofas marked and frayed. Rug faded. Windows dirty. Kitchen - sticky work surfaces, had to wash two pans before using, not enough mugs (if you have dishwasher you need more). Downstairs loo and shower room - found used sanitary towel wrapped in toilet paper stuffed in radiator! Smells damp and mouldy. Upstairs bathroom - broken door handle, dirty scaled toilet, mouldy shower door. The brown, seventies looking, bath wall is dated and certainly not conducive to a relaxing bath. Towels - tired. Bedrooms fine. Outside seating area - horrible. The metal chairs and table are all rusted - a challenge to make a small area like this look nice but there had been no effort made. A pot plant or two, tidying around the bins and the down pipes all would have helped. We never used it. The paintwork of the whole cottage needs redoing. The inside of the back door for example looks like it’s just been primed. Brown knot marks everywhere (so did the master bed), floorboard staining again looking tired. Location wise it was great and we certainly enjoyed our time in lovely Southwold but the accommodation was a big let down.

  • "We were disappointed at the lack of real cleanliness in the cottage."

    Everything was superficially clean. But the rubbish bin was very mouldy under the bin liner, the washing machine detergent dispensor was covered in black mould. The outside area was thick with bird poo, once cleaned this did not reappear. The toilet door handle was held on with one screw. The frying pan was unusable. And the dishwasher did not work for most of our stay. Parking was not as simple as it sounded in the details.

    Thank you for your feedback. However, once you notified us regarding the dishwasher, Best of Suffolk got a plumber out as soon as possible to rectify the problem. Prior to your stay, no previous guests had notified us of the issue with the dishwasher and you were the first guests to do so. As we are situated 100 metres from the sea, I am sure you appreciate that there is an ongoing issue with seagulls. The property is cleaned regularly to get rid of the seagull mess. You made us aware during the stay, that you were not happy with the frying pan and one was sent out immediately to replace it and was personally delivered within 24 hrs by our housekeeper. We will notify our housekeeper of the other issues raised. Property Owner

  • "We love this property and have stayed a couple of times."

    Furnished well, cosy and feels like home. Well equipped kitchen, and our girls love sitting on the kitchen floor due to the underfloor heating. Nice touch .
