  • "We had a fantastic stay, the property is beautiful and had everything we needed."

  • "Hello We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the weather helped!"

    As it was a beautiful weekend. Property is in a great location which we were familiar with. The property itself, easy access, straight forward. Very well presented. Good facilities, comfy beds and pillows. Clean bathrooms. Great kitchen. Although the 2 nd oven did trip a couple of times. One major issue for us, sofas are very low and uncomfortable, we ended up using the dining room chairs just to sit and chat. Also although high ceilings in the lounge and not easy to reach, the cobwebs were huge, just not nice to look at. Other than that fabulous.

  • "Just back from a relaxing stay here and it’s picture perfect accommodation and location."

    Just a short walk to the pebble beach, the Kitchen does breakfast overlooking the Mere and with ducks for company and the Emporium has vintage and antiques. It’s ideally located across from the Dolphin restaurant and you can beach walk via them coastal path which takes you to Aldeburgh in around half an hour where there are boutique shops. Badminton was perfect for us and we will be back soon! We can also recommend the Dolphin and sister pub restaurant The Parrot & Punchbowl for lovely food.

  • "The main bathroom smelled of drains the whole time despite me pouring water down all the drains to ensure the u bends were covered."

    The iron garden furniture is rusty & has seen better days, not what I would expect when paying nearly £1000. Photo available. On arrival, it was very warm upstairs & the housekeeper organised two fans which was greatly appreciated. The stuffing in the main sofa seat cushion needs replacing. It would appear the place had been empty for a while as there were large spiders in the bath & underneath kitchen wall cupboards. Despite those mentioned we had an enjoyable stay.

  • "Amazing apartment, very spacious and comfortable to easily accommodate 3 couples or a family to enjoy the nearby beach and many walks and attractions within the area."

    There is a bus stop at the end of the drive and the Dolphin Inn just across the road.

  • "In addition an overall enjoyable stay, some negative feedback:- Both toilet roll holders were broken."

    The scissors in the kitchen drawer were broken. The sofas need replacing - extremely flat and very uncomfortable. One of the carpets in the bedroom I don't think had been hoovered.

    Thank you for passing on your feedback, it is invaluable in order to maintain standards. The owner is going to replace the scissors & toilet roll holders and would have been more than happy to do this during your stay, had you got in touch we would have rectified for you.

Situated in the idyllic village of Thorpeness just along the coast from the bustling town of Aldeburgh in Suffolk, is this charming holiday cottage, Badminton.

Perfect for families or a small group of friends, the cottage is stylishly presented and offers all the home comforts any discerning traveller would expect.

The open-plan living space is a particular feature of the property and boasts a fabulous space ideal for entertaining and socialising.

The vaulted ceiling and traditional mullioned windows help to add the ‘wow’ factor to the room and the high ceilings and large windows allow loads of light to flood in.

There is a generous sitting area arranged around a fantastic feature living flame fire which is the perfect spot for gathering together to chat and catch up on news, or if you want to just chill out there’s a TV and DVD player here too.

The attractive fully fitted kitchen has everything needed to create delicious food for the whole party and the elegant dining area is all set up with an extensive dining table and chairs, all ready for long, lazy meals together.

At bedtime, there is a bedroom to suit everyone with two king-sizes and a double.

All are beautifully presented and offer a relaxing sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the house.

There are delightful communal gardens and a patio area to the front of the property where children can play and you can watch life go by.

There is even storage for bicycles here.
