  • "Second time staying at Ubbeston Lodges, Cocky Hen was spacious for two and really well equipped."

    Well located to visit all the attractions on the Suffolk Coast and with the added bonus of a swim each day. We heard plenty of wildlife including an owl most evenings and goldcrests.

  • "Very comfortable, very well equipped, very high standard of finish and fittings, very very warm and cosy."

    Bottle of wine and shortbread much appreciated. A small bottle of milk would have been good as the nearest shop is about 3 miles away - luckily we brought some with us. The sound insulation is not as good as the thermal insulation and the neighbours (not the cows!) were quite noisy.

    A few minor observations: Sink tap needs descaling as it spits water in all directions Fly faeces needs cleaning off entrance door Coke bottle with unsavoury contents had been left by entrance door Yellow sofa is stained so I didn’t use it Fitted sheet for bed would be more comfortable than flat sheet Outdoor seating area needs some work - it’s currently no more than a concrete box Better instructions needed for what can/can’t be recycled in blue bin

  • "We enjoyed our stay at your property very much ."

    We have been before but we stayed in the holy cow.but both properties would benefit from a proper wardrobe especially in the holy cow we had to buy some over door hooks to put on the wardrobe door as there was no hanging space. Apart from this little problem it was a lovely place to stay.
