The coastal village of Corton lies just three miles from the larger seaside town of Lowestoft. Lowestoft, situated at the most easterly point in the British Isles, was developed in the mid 1800's into a fashionable Victorian seaside resort by Sir Morton Peto, the entrepreneur and civil engineer who built Nelson's Column and the Houses of Parliament. The town has two piers located on the south beach. The southerly pier, called Claremont Pier, originally served as a port of call for steamers traveling to and from London. It now provides a music venue, amusement arcade, roller-disco, fish and chip cafe and a separate, contemporary fresh fish and seafood restaurant and bar. There are many places of interest in the area including Pleasurewood Hills theme park, the East Anglia Transport Museum, Africa Alive, Oulton Broad, Belle Vue Park and Nicholas Everett Park with its pet corner and the Seagull Theatre. The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra has a residency at the Marina Theatre in town. There are three blue flag beaches, several good pubs and restaurants, ten-pin bowling, indoor swimming-pool and sports complex, riding school, cinema, theatre and an annual festival. The Norfolk broads and the pretty towns of Beccles and Southwold are less than 30 minutes away by car, as is the excitement of Great Yarmouth's pleasure beach and unique Hippodrome circus.

I absolutely loved this cottage. I would move in tomorrow and not change a thing. So full of character and the garden was just delightful - we were lucky enough to have good weather to be able to enjoy it.

Very well equiped, comfortable and cosy cottage. Lovely garden and summer house. Our dog loved it all especially the nearby woods, beach and playing field. Highly recomended.

mrs C,

This is the nicest holiday cottage we have ever stayed in - it is beautiful with an amazing garden. The owners have thought of everything and there is nothing you will need that you will not find. Also in an ideal location with a woodland walk, a park and the beach all within walking distance. A real touch of luxury with a warm homely feel and everything there is of really good quality ( fixtures and fittings, soft furnishings and furniture etc ) A really thoughtful welcome pack including treats for the dog was a nice find on arrival too. We will definitely return and will recommend to all our friends/ family Thank you for a wonderful holiday.

Mr J,
