Pakefield village lies on the edge of the coastal town of Lowestoft. Lowestoft, situated at the most easterly point in the British Isles, was developed in the mid 1800's into a fashionable Victorian seaside resort by Sir Morton Peto, the entrepreneur and civil engineer who built Nelson's Column and the Houses of Parliament. There are many places of interest in the area including Pleasurewood Hills theme park to the north of the town, the East Anglia Transport Museum, Africa Alive, Oulton Broad, Belle Vue Park and Nicholas Everett Park with its pet corner. The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra has a residency at the Marina Theatre in town and the Seagull Theatre is just a short walk away from the property. There are three blue flag beaches, several good pubs and restaurants, ten-pin bowling, indoor swimming-pool and sports complex, riding school, cinema, theatre and an annual festival. The Norfolk broads and the pretty towns of Beccles and Southwold are less than 20 minutes away by car, as is the excitement of Great Yarmouth's pleasure beach and unique Hippodrome circus.

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Avocet. Your property is SO beautifully decorated and thought out. Loved the homely touches, bath robes, coffee machine, throws and luxurious bedding. Thank you for the wonderful Easter welcome pack and supplies, Daisy had her nose straight in her own treat basket! She especially enjoyed the edible treats and the ball! We appreciate your fabulous communication, it enabled us to start our relaxing break on arrival. We have enjoyed walking to Kessingland along the beach, exploring sunny Southwold and plan a stop on the Broads on the way home. Thank you for sharing Avocet with us, we have had a very comfortable and relaxing stay in the Suffolk sunshine.

Previous Customer,

We spent a fantastic weekend at this perfect little hideaway. The owner has created a beautifully presented apartment which went beyond our expectations. The decor was fabulous - I especially loved the owner's pictures of Pakefield beach - which made me even more excited about seeing it myself and at only a two minutes walk I was not disappointed. Pakefield has a stunning sandy beach, not to mention delicious fish and chips - what could be better! You can truly understand why this is a gold star property with lovely added touches such as bath robes, toiletries and a generous welcome hamper. Additionally, the owner was extremely helpful in guiding us to local points of interest and places to eat - I would definitely recommended the Jolly Sailors!. Overall, a very restful and relaxing break. I would wholeheartedly recommend this property.
