  • "Lovely cottage and perfect location (Thorpeness is lovely) - near nearby Aldeburgh, the beach and the local pub and dog walking ideal."

    Facilities on the whole very good but the "open fire" on one listing wasnt there - disappointing. The snug where the only TV (very small) is located is probably the sleeping for the 6th person? - not possible for 4 of us adults & dog to sit and watch tv - I know if you are on holiday you are out most of the time but at night (winter) when temperatures drop it would be nice to watch together some Christmas stuff/movie but impossible. The large dining/seating/Christmas tree area would have been so much more appropriate and comfortable and obvious with a more appropriate sized TV??? The heating was a little hit and miss and didn't come on when the temperature dropped. Didnt try to mess with that!

    Thanks for your feedback. The TV is small, I agree; the listing does mention the size. Along with Best of Suffolk, we will check out other listings and see where the reference to the 'open fire' comes from. The smaller bedroom upstairs has an additional truckle bed but it wasn't up when you stayed as it wasn't required. Apologies about the heating; it is on a timer but it is possible to override it. I will ensure there are clear instructions as to how to do so. I hope you found it well equipped and enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "My husband and I found the property to be very well appointed."

    We took a friend with us who was staying from Toronto Canada, she was well impressed with the house and all the kitchen equipment, and the garden with all the various grasses, nothing of the like to be found in her country, Many thanks for a special memorable few days. Connie Barker.

    So glad you enjoyed it - please do come back! Property Owner

  • "A well equipt house,very comfortable."

    While we were there we had a 3 hour Power Cut over meal time. The property handbook stated there was a torch,but no details where it was located. We never did find it? We did find 3 and a half candles,but nothing to put them in. Fortunately we did have a gas hob, but very tricky to use it. This situation needsto be improved. Overall we we enjoyed our stay at Corner Cottage very much, but the poor weather meant we were not able tosit in the lovely garden, Derek Miles

    We are sorry you had a power cut. There should have been a torch and batteries in the dresser drawer in the sitting room. We will make sure the location is indicated in the welcome folder, and also buy a couple more, including putting one upstairs. We removed candles when we did our last fire risk assessment. Apart from the weather, we are glad you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "We were extremely happy with the property."

    It contained everything we needed and was a very attractive, spacious and comfortable place to stay. We found it very useful having the separate TV room. The back garden with paved area, plenty of seating, and attractive planting, was stunning.

    I'm glad you enjoyed your visit and the garden - it's lovely at this time of year. Please come back! Property Owner

    A lovely garden to relax in and just a short walk away from the pub and beach. We really enjoyed our short stay here, the perfect place to relax and unwind. Already planning our next stay!

  • "Our second stay at Corner Cottage was just as wonderful as our first."

    Multiple trips to Southwold and Aldeburgh plus Walberswick and Woodbridge. The Theberton Lion was a new to us pub and provided a welcome introduction to Adnams with it's wide choice of real ale.

  • "Lovely comfortable cottage, well equipped and spacious."

    Great quiet location, but close to beach - great for walking. Would thoroughly recommend. Only a minor issue - having asked for 1*double /2*twins, we turned up to 2doubles - but found sheets / duvets to do it ourselves!

    We do apologise for any mix-up with the beds. Our Housekeeper is usually meticulous about checking these things; apologies if your request slipped through the system. I am glad you enjoyed the location and lovely walks, please come again! Property Owner

    Very cosy house! Enjoyed Sutton Hoo, bike riding in Rendlesham Forest and various walks along the beautiful beach! Loved the bike rack and spacious garden.

  • "It wasn’t quite the week we had planned as we all had covid so our movements were v restricted and we were in the house far more than we expected."

    Our only negative was the Television- usually this wouldn’t have featured as we don’t go away to watch TV! On this occasion we would have welcomed a TV that was larger. The variety of games was brilliant. We stay in Suffolk twice a year and truly love Aldeburgh & Thorpeness. Unfortunately no visits to Southwold or The Lighthouse this time.

    Sorry to hear about your Covid! Agreed, it's not a big TV as we also think there is far too much else to do on holiday in Suffolk but glad you enjoyed the games. Please come again! Property Owner
