Thank you for our stay in your homely and very comfortable cottage. A cosy Novembe rweekend with lovely walks for the dogs and owners. The dogs loved the garden too - perfect.

Previous Customer,

Thank you for our welcome pack. We have very much enjoyed exploring the area - mostly on foot - from this warm and comfortable house.

Richard and C,

Lovely week with lots of long walks. Have been coming to this village and have known the area for over 40 years - wonderful that it is still as unspoilt and nothing much changes. Perfect.

Amanda and R,

After a terrible year a week at Gorse Cottage has been an amazing tonic. We love Walberswick and Southwold and are so sorry to be leaving. The cottage has been the perfect base for lots of walking and relaxing. Hopefully we will be back soon.

Vic and K,

Thank you Gorse Cottage for a lovely weekend. What a wonderful place to be squirrelled away in.

Previous Customer,

Gorse cottage in Walberswick is the perfect bolt hole for a relaxing getaway with walks from the door and great local pubs.

Ms Helen S,

The cottage is a perfect bolthole for a relaxing break. We have enjoyed walks from the door to Dunwich and Southwold. The Blyth river trip and the Walberswick Ferry Company were fun. Lovely to have three great pubs in walking distance. Bought food for picnics from the Black Dog Deli. All is all, the perfect getaway.

The S,
