Norton Raybould family,

Thanks we've had a lovely stay in your cottage = everything was great! We've visited Southwold, Aldeburgh, Sutton Hoo, Thorpeness, Snape maltings, Rendlesham Forest for biking and had a fab walk along The sailor's Path from Snape. Landlord and staff at the Old Chequers very friendly.

The R,

We've had a wonderful week. Very lucky with the weather! The house is perfect for kids - lots of exciting new toys, DVD's and a very safe garden. Best day trip - Easton Farm Park. Park at Aldeburgh playground, walk/scoot into town along the park past the gym equipment, great route with kids. Thank you for a great stay!
