  • "We really enjoyed our stay at the Tardis-like bungalow Glenhaven."

    Spacious and well-appointed with everything we needed. Very quiet with great views across the fields and a perfect place for some rest and relaxation. Conveniently located to access the Suffolk coast with places such as Southwold, Aldeburgh and Dunwich all within easy reach. The friendly owners lived next door and were on hand to welcome us upon our arrival.

  • "A spotless, spacious, warm and comfortable cottage in a tranquil location."

    Lovely views from every window. Plenty of parking space - and a bike shed too! Perfect location for our birdwatching holiday. We will bring bikes next time as the countryside looks great for that too. Charming helpful hosts. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

  • "Lovely cream tea on arrival, just what the doctor ordered!"

    Cottage was on the outskirts of a very quiet village and in the afternoon we watched hares in the stubble field from the kitchen window before they retired to the thick hedgerow. Take binoculars if you have any. Lovely owners who live next door and are only too happy to help with any queries or questions about the area.

  • "Did not realise that the bungalow was so in the heart of the countryside."

    The view from the kitchen window was over a barley field and it was great not hearing traffic noise. The hosts Sandy and Julien lived next door but were not intrusive at all and came up trumps over any minor difficulties. What is more we love it so much we will be booking next year.

  • "The cottage could not have been better."

    Extremely well equipped, great people and it provided the tranquility I had been researching for months. I had to start a diet after the lovely scones & clotted cream which took me back a few years. DOH!!!!!! When I booked I saw the comments regarding the scones and clotted cream and was adamant I wouldn't mention them but I admit I couldn't resist saying something about them :) Many thanks Sandi & Julian, I will be booking again. Best regards, Roger

  • "Glenhaven was spotlessly clean, comfortable and very well equipped."

    The bungalow is in a lovely peaceful setting and there are nice views over the surrounding countryside. We spent a very pleasant week there despite the weather which was cold and windy a lot of the time, but as we were visiting family some of the time this was not too important and we could look forward to returning to a cosy, warm holiday home at the end of the day. We would certainly return to Glenhaven and hope to do so very soon.

    Not far from Aldeburgh and not far from facilities in Saxmundham. Very large kitchen. Cottage very clean and well equipped, though a dishwasher would have been a welcome addition. Would definitely return to this comfortable location where there is plenty to see and do nearby.

  • "Lovely accommodation in a beautiful setting."

    Only one small downside for us was the toilet not being in the bathroom. Had to walk right through the kitchen, dining room and hallway. A little difficult when you need to visit the toilet frequently in the night (not a problem for younger people).
