  • "Cannot do better than say that it’s our fifth time here and we have already booked for 2025."

    Perfect for a family holiday.

  • "Crabapple Cottage gave us the wonderful break that we needed."

    Its close proximity to the pier, sea and high street meant that we were able to walk everywhere that we needed too. The house its self is probably one of the best equipped that we have stayed in. Everything we needed had been thought about. Beautifully decorated throughout. Super comfy beds, decent sized towels, all clean and tidy, meant that we didn’t really have to worry about anything.

  • "Crabapple Cottage is a lovely house, warm and comfortable, well presented and with everything provided that you could possibly want, and in sufficient quantities."

    Its also in a very convenient position for the Pier/Beach and shops at Southwold. We had trouble getting in once and the speed of local response was excellent over a B/H weeklend. I think the deadlock button partially drops down inadvertently, preventing operation of the Yale lock. Leaving the inside key out of the patio door lock does enable access from the rear as a contingency. There are a couple of minor issues for the maintenance team: The Oven bulb has gone The under basin cabinet handle in the shower room of the master bedroom pulls away on the LHS and needs a more effective screw Ian & Lone

  • "Lovely property in a great location."

    The owners really have tried to cater to all your needs. Personally I would like a dressing table with a mirror to sit and dry and style my hair. Also felt the size of the living area would benefit from a larger tv. That said, didn't detract from our stay. Would definitely return and wouldn't hesitate to recommend. Thank you for a great stay.

  • "Lovely property second time here with friends."

    The house is so relaxing and space has been thought out so well. Lovely to have our own bathrooms. We are old school friends and have been many places for breaks together, but crabapple has spoilt us and hard to find anything so good. So easy positioned for all facilities in Southwold.
