Green Gate Cottage was a gorgeous stay. Great location - only a short walk to Southwold beach and town. The cottage itself was impeccably cleaned, incredibly comfortable and had everything that was needed. We were 5 adults (and a 5 month foetus) and there was plenty of space for us all to cook, eat and relax. Also a very thoughtful welcome note and some local welcome goodies! Would highly recommend

Dr F,

Green Gate Cottage was clean, comfortable, well equipped and in a great location to enjoy a family holiday in the Southwold area. The owner was very helpful and welcoming via text messages and answered all our questions. The welcome pack was lovely especially Claire's hen's eggs and delicious plum jam! Thank you we would definately return to this property.

Mrs T,

Green gate cottage is a lovely place to stay. Spacious, warm, comfortable, clean and well equipped. There is a short and pleasant walk to the beach and southwold. The welcome pack and friendly correspondence provided by Claire was an added bonus (especially the chocolate cake!). We would have no hesitation in recommending this cottage for your holiday.
