Found our very own secret hiding place. We'll be back!

Mr and Mrs Baker,

Weather was glorious- we had a lovely week in a superb location. There were some lovely and interesting dog walks- such a chore! The cottage was comfortable and cost. Would have been nice to open the bedroom windows at night as was very hot and humid. Thank you, we all enjoyed our stay!

Enjoyed our stay in the cottage, a great location with lots of peace and quiet. Local villages are lovely to visit and not too far to drive or walk. The beaches were never busy. The local pubs in Dunwich and Westleton (The Ship and The Crown) are well worth a visit and lots of places are dog friendly too. The weather was fantastic. The neighbour at No.4 was also very friendly. Thank you very much!

A lovely cottage in the heart of Dunwich Heath. Wonderful time had by us all and the dogs. The Ship Inn as good as always to have a drink and a meal. The Bell at Walberswick is a nice pub. Plenty of bird watching done by dad at Minsmere, Dunwich Heath and Walberswick. Days out at Southwold, Aldeburgh were made even better by lovely warm, dry weather. Played golf at Thorpeness, nice course. The cottage was most welcome at the end of a long day walking. Thank you very much.
