The decoration of the bedrooms (and every room) is excellent: recently done I would guess. The position of the cottage is great - near enough to walk to the shop and the sea but far enough away from the 'main" road through Walberswick.

Rev H,

Drift Cottage was a perfect location down a quiet lane but close enough to all the amenities. Great coastal and country walks. The accommodation worked well for 7 people and I would highly recommend it to future holiday makers.

Mrs D,

A wonderful sanctuary, we couldn't have hoped for a better haven.

Elliott family,

Lovely well-equipped cottage and great secure garden.

Biggs family,

A really lovely cottage and a wonderful location. We would love to return.

Cossington family,

Lovely well equipped cottage in a quiet location. Garden is nice and secure if you are taking a pet. Nice comfortable lounge and lovely bright and airy kitchen. Easy access to the village and Southwold so no need to use the car which is a real bonus. This is the third cottage we have rented in Walberswick and all have been of a good standard.

Mrs K,

Brilliantly located, very comfortable cottage with a lovely garden. Very quiet area with great footpaths. Just beware the few low ceilings in this cottage!

Mrs R,
