Excellent service and property from Suffolk Secrets, who have provided us with Southwold holiday homes for the past 10 years or so. We are booked into the same property through Suffolk Secrets for next year and hope to continue for many years to come. Excellent service giving us a wonderful holiday once again.

Mr Taylor - Seacroft Southwold

We have always felt that all of our dealings with Suffolk Secrets have been outstanding in the level of customer service they provide.  Whether by e-mail, telephone, in person, webchat or by letter the company has always made us feel welcome and displayed a very high level of professionalism.

Mrs Ranstead - Jersey Lodge

Excellent in all respects; would definitely return. My booking was fairly last minute but made with ease through the Suffolk Secrets website.  The property met all our expectations and more.  The generous welcome pack was a lovely touch and our only problem was forcing ourselves to return home!

Mrs C Oldershaw - Starlings

The most professional, efficient and friendly cottage company in Suffolk and Norfolk. I have used a few in the past, and this is by far the best.
