Very quite location, which is ideal for walking but still not to from Southwold

Mr H,

Simply and comfortably furnished in a great location with lots of footpaths linking the coast. Spacious property with very small kitchen but adequate for two people.

Mrs S,

A well appointed cottage in a secluded location which was perfect for a relaxing break away. The cottage is ideally located for countryside walks with a network of footpaths nearby and local amenities close by in Southwold. On arrival there was a lovely welcome pack of ground coffee, biscuits, milk. We would definitely like to return for another stay at this peaceful cottage location.

Mrs H,

This property was ideal for us as we like to park our car on arrival and walk. We found miles of lovely footpaths to explore and enjoyed spotting the wildlife. It was easy to walk into Southwold.

Mr S,

This cottage is perfect for two. In an ideal, rural position, it is easy to get to all the local amenities and beautiful parts of Suffolk. Highly recommended.

Mrs K,

This property is wonderful, warm and comfortable. A little out of the way for some people but not for us, situated right on the marshes. Perfect for walking and wildlife. An OS map of the area is a must.

Mr S,

The property is located in an ideal location for walking and viewing wildlife.Its the perfect getaway for a quiet relaxing holiday.

Mr V,

A beautifully appointed, spacious, secluded hideaway, with welcome treats of coffee, milk, biscuits, crisps and drinks on arrival. There's instant access to a network of footpaths allowing you to explore the whole area without needing to use your car. A small meadow behind the cottage has seating so you can watch the sunsets. We saw wild deer near the cottage during our stay. A 20 minute walk and you are in the lovely old town of Southwold. This property exceeded our expectations in every way so we highly recommend it.

Mr S,
