The property was fine, but the decor was a bit dated and the garden could have done with a bit of tending. Also the layout of the house was not great for a family with small children, given the large step to one of the bedrooms. Mr Chris Attfield - 5th September 2017
Well located and equipped. Tastefully furnished.Mrs J Gibbon - 11th March 2017
Christmas Cottage is a delightful and very well equipped holiday home. Ideally located for the town and we felt very much at home there. We have stayed with Suffolk Secrets quite a few times now and we are never disappointed. All the cottages have felt luxurious and the whole experience from beginning to end goes very smoothly and with the help of very friendly staff. 10/10 from us!!Ms P Hamilton - 11th January 2017
