What more can I say, we've been coming bank to this property and location for years and still look forward to returning. Our next booking is in October.

Mr T,

Views of the sand dunes and sea on one side, views of the harbour the other side. A 2 minute walk (max) to the sea, harbour or village green. The property was spotlessly clean throughout and well stocked with everything you need. Useful having an entrance to the rear of the property with a hose pipe available to hose down muddy boots and paws. Southwold is an easy 2 1/2 mile walk along the coast (closer if taking the short cut via the ‘ferry’ (aka rowing boat). Plenty of walks from the door step away from the beach with some lovely eateries in the village.

Ms M,

Wonderful cottage and perfect location keeps us coming back year after year!

Ms C,

We were very pleasantly surprised when we walked into Ferry Knowle. The standard of clealiness was exceptional. The cottage had a lovely feel, spacious, cosy and very welcoming. The bedrooms were lovely, again welcoming, beautiful quality bedlinens, good storage, gorgeous views, perfect in every way. The amenities in Walberswick are very good, including 2 nice pubs, an exceptional deli (The Black Dog), a co-op, cafe's and giift shop. We would love to return.

Mr P,

Having stayed there , from memory 5 times, I marked the recommendation response as 'very unlikely' not because we were unhappy with it any way but because its so popular its getting hard to book it when we want to go.

Mr T,
