We have just returned from four delightful nights in your property. I wanted to write to you personally to say how impressed we were with the beautiful layout and how well equipped the property was. We love the area and enjoyed walking in to Southwold and along the coast to Walberswick. I hope we may be able to repeat the stay next year.

Clare W,

A lovely little cottage away from the crowds. 20 min walk into Southwold, as per the description before we booked. We had a lovely 4 days, without having to move the car once from the time we arrived to the time we left.

Past Customer,

Really nice comfortable, clean, well equipped holiday cottage. Highly Recommended :-)
