The Haven cerainly lives up to its name - it is an oasis of calm amidst the busy streets of Southwold. A very tasteful property with quality fixtures and fittings in an incredibly convenient location. Having a car parking space is a real bonus as parking in Southwold can be problematic.The service provided by Suffolk Secrets is first class - a couple of minor issues we had were dealt with promptly and efficiently in a very friendly manner.Mrs Lyn Lawrence - 3rd September 2018
Very comfortable, well-equipped property with high quality appliances/ linen etc. Would highly recommend the property and would happily stay there again.Mrs L Hill - 9th July 2018
We love Suffolk and particularly Southwold. The "Haven" is an ideal place to stay and really makes it the perfect holiday.Mrs J Brown - 25th June 2018
Best place we have ever stayed in.Mrs Sheila Gillick - 31st December 2017
Having stayed in some lovely cottages in Southwold over the years, The Haven is by far the best. The location is quiet but close to shops, pubs, the beach etc and a big bonus was the parking space! The interior of the cottage is modern and bright, spotlessly clean and with all the facilities that make it a real home-from-home. The owners have thought of everything. We will definitely return. Mrs Susan Marshall - 19th September 2017
Good property, nice friendly town that we have visited over 20 times.Mr B Burgess - 17th July 2017
The property was beautifully appointed inside with excellent furnishings and fittings and very convenient for the town. We only met your team when we picked up and dropped off the keys but they were very pleasant and the local area was good for walking and being beside the seaside. We also did two very good shows during Southwold Arts Festival which we thoroughly enjoyed.Mrs Jean Marshall - 3rd July 2017
This property suits us down to the ground. As 2 OAPs it is well presented, has all the facilities we need and is centrally located with a parking space.Dr FRANK MANGAN - 16th May 2017
A really lovely, relaxing environment. Would definitely visit again. Ms Karin Kuhlow - 31st March 2017
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The Haven is very well situated in the centre of the town, yet secluded and quiet. It was very nice to have coffee and tea provided on entry, too ! The property is very well equipped and fulfilled all of our needs. Mr W Jopling - 9th January 2017
The property was excellent. Beautifully renovated and decorated to a very high standard. We did feel like wonderful people just like it said on the welcome door mat!Mrs Gina Dooley - 21st June 2016
