This property is all about location. The cottage is not marketed as a 5* luxury escape so we got exactly what we thought we were getting. Mrs Dorinda Munns - 4th September 2017
Third time to the property - beautiful cottage and perfect for us with young children and a dog. Could quite happily 'live' there!Miss J Beynon - 14th August 2017
Thought Tinker's Cottage very quaint and charming and can't wait to stay there again.Mrs P Hunt - 12th May 2017
Ideal location for what we required, I love Suffolk and its diversity, beach, heath, woods, loads of walking and fresh air, so privateMr A McMahon - 6th July 2016
We really enjoyed our stay. The property was very clean and warm when we arrived on a chilly afternoon. A perfect setting for exploring north-east Suffolk's wonderful coast and countryside. We loved exploring the area on foot with occasional ventures further afield to Orford Ness and Framlingham. We would happily stay again and recommend the cottage to friends. Suffolk Secrets are 'on the button', quietly efficient and readily available to respond to any queries. We would book through them again and recommend their cottages to others.Mrs K Robertson - 24th April 2016
Loved the property and location ideal for exploring and a friendly village pub a few doors down which we used frequently. There's also a couple of nice tea rooms within walking distance. Would stay there again. we loved it there, a pretty, quaint cottage.Mrs Karen Mc Cready - 29th March 2016
Lovely, welcoming and warm cottage, ideally located to explore this part of the Suffolk Coast.Mr C Merriman - 28th March 2016
Will definitely return again and again, God willing. Beautifully re-decorated since our last visit. Usual high standard and comfy.Mr J Woodhead - 6th March 2016
Been visiting this cottage for a number of years; we love it! We love Suffolk and Suffolk Secrets has always come up to the mark … we'll continue to use your services and look forward to our next visit. Thank you.Mrs M Haldane - 5th October 2015
