The property was well presented and the weekly housekeeping was very good and well done. Request for repairs to be done were handled very quickly and efficiently...brilliant service!Mrs E Thorpe - 9th August 2018
Lovely house in a quite beautiful setting. So impressed by furnishings, including the equipment which handily included a dog lead as we forgot ours.Mr Spencer Drury - 22nd July 2018
This is a lovely house, comfortable and well appointed. There is usually some item we could use that's not available, but that's not the case with Pilgrim Cottage. We were delighted to find that there is no need for us to bring any catering equipment, because there is everything we needed. The views of the marshes and wildlife are wonderful. Mrs Claire Henriques - 15th July 2018
There are wonderful views over the Dingle Marshes to Southwold from Pilgrim Cottage and the sea can be seen from upstairs windows. It is so peaceful with only the sound of the sea when it is rough. It's just a five minute walk to the beach. Bird watching at Minsmere is a 10-15 minute drive away and Dunwich Heath is even nearer. Mrs Margaret Barnes - 25th September 2017
We had a great holiday at Pilgrim Cottage. Pilgrim Cottage is a great place to stay with family and friends: it's well equipped, feels like a home from home and is in a superb location. Mrs Wendy Bryant - 29th August 2017
Pilgrim Cottage is a super holiday cottage in a wonderful location with absolutely amazing views from the lounge and master bedroom. The welcome pack was a lovely surprise. Thank you!Mrs Louise Ellingworth - 12th June 2017
This is a very comfortable, very well furnished and equipped house, with a lovely back garden and view, all in a lovely location. Mr Ronald Ager - 5th June 2017
Excellent accommodation, fantastic location, very well equipped and would not hesitate to stay at this property again. Hopefully I will. Mrs Rosemary Storey - 22nd April 2017
A lovely property, in a prime location, with lovely views to the rear. Walks from the door, pub nearby, and dog friendly. Booked entirely through the website which was so easy to navigate and use. We all had a lovely holiday, thank you.Mrs M Shepherd - 8th January 2017
Felt almost like a home!Mr David Smith - 29th August 2016
From initially booking the property in Dunwich for 2 weeks, to leaving at the end of the holiday, it has been a lovely experience. Definitely to be repeated.Mrs Edith Milne - 22nd August 2016
Wonderful location and fabulous views over the marshesMrs J Whitehead - 31st July 2016
Lovely views from the rear of the property.Mr M Carter - 19th August 2015
Pilgrim Cottage provides superb family accommodation. Dunwich is a fascinating place because of its history, which includes the lost city beneath the waves, described in a most interesting way in the local museum.Dr Higby - 14th August 2015
