Why We Love This Property: Of course we had to choose 3 The Dormy’s wonderful balcony. With the outdoor area facing west, the balcony catches seasonal sun sets which are the perfect end to a day exploring Suffolk. With a bottle of your favourite tipple and a blanket wrapped around your shoulders, you’ll fit in that important batch of relaxation whilst watching the sun pass by

The mock Tudor style of the building is now the hallmark of Thorpeness, where the amenities include the Dolphin Inn, the Thorpeness Hotel with its 18-hole golf club, a country club with tennis courts and the Meare - a large shallow boating lake with tearooms nearby. The beaches are mainly sandy and behind the village is a myriad of footpaths over heath and common land.

We found the location and proximity to amenities of Thorpeness to be very good. Access to the property by stone steps with no hand rail was difficult for the less able members of my party.

Mrs H,

Clean, comfortable, excellent location Spoilt by the state of the en suite shower which was unusable
