A lovely comfy property in the countryside but within walking distance of the village with it's well stocked shop. Plenty of interesting places to drive to within easy reach. This was our third visit and each time we have had a very relaxing holiday.

Mrs P,

Superb accommodation, and very dog friendly. Nice quiet and remote venue but situated close to visit places of interest, ie Southwold, Thorpeness, Aldeburgh, Ipswich and Felixstowe.

Mrs S,

We had a lovely relaxing holiday. The accommodation was to a high specification and the owners Marion and Philip were very friendly and helpful. We divided our time between visiting the beautiful coast and countryside, and relaxing in the quiet, tranquil garden. We would definitely go again.

Mr F,

Very good location.

Miss D,

If you want a peaceful & attractive location then this is the place, a charming well equipped property with very pleasant and helpful owners on hand. An ideal position to explore coast & countryside of this lovely county.

Mrs H,
