Shottisham is a pretty village situated between Bawdsey at the mouth of the River Deben and the busy market town of Woodbridge; it is also just a short distance away from the coast at Shingle Street. There are many public footpaths to explore in this area of Suffolk and after getting out and about why not enjoy a well-earned drink in the fantastic village pub called the Sorrel Horse which hosts many social events throughout the year.

Lovely little cottage, fire great, not far from anywhere. Thank you, will come again.

James Peck,

Thank you for the items in the fridge. Lovely cottage, nice walks and plenty of good pubs to eat in.


It was excellent value for money and suited our needs perfectly. Really appreciated the little added touches like the welcome pack for both humans and dog.

Ms Catherine Cousins ,

A wonderful cottage, cosy and ticked all the boxes. Lovely log fire and excellent pub and restaurant next door.

Mrs Claire Green,

Our first visit to Serena Cottage. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Such a lovely cottage and great food at The Sorrel Horse.


How wonderful to be back again at Serena Cottage. It may be cold outside, but sitting by the woodburner all cosy and warm in this delightful cottage is really special. A welcome break to switch off. Thank you so much again for all your thoughtful goodies. Until next time.

Linda and Alfie,

The food you left in the fridge was a wonderful surprise and the extras such as Prosecco and chocolates were very unexpected and very welcome. Also finding the fire laid and ready to light was wonderful.

Mrs Jenifer Reed,

Serena Cottage was a splendid getaway location, with an added bonus of good food a few doors away at The Sorrell Horse. Recommended.

Ms Jill Hayward,

We have really enjoyed staying at Serena Cottage. Beautifully clean with everything we could have wanted. So nice to walk in following a fairly long journey to fresh flowers and welcoming treats. The village is so peaceful and quiet. We have had several really enjoyable meals at The Plough and Sail in Snape and great fish and chips at 'The Sorrel Horse'. Thank you for a wonderful week in Suffolk

Miss M Kirby,

Thank you for the lovely scones and fresh butter they were wonderful. As were the delightful homemade preserves. We have stayed at 5 holiday lets over the past several months and Serena Cottage was by far the cleanest! It was immaculate, which makes a huge difference. The cottage is in a beautiful location and all of the special touches (fresh flowers were lovely)really set Serena Cottage apart from the crowd. We very much enjoyed our stay. Thank you. Rebecca, Suffolk

Mrs Rebecca Fehily,

Our second stay at Serena Cottage this year! Again, a lovely clean cottage, a very nice welcome pack - flowers, goodies for us and for Radley the Scottie. Beautiful weather so up early and visiting favourite places, exploring new ones, then back in the afternoon to relax in the summer house. (what a treat for Mr A - both World Cup and wimbledon on!) Hope we come back for a third stay.

Anna-Marie, Symon and Radley Allen,

The property in a lovely quiet location. Great location for the dog as plenty of local walks.

Mrs Susan Walker,

Excellent all round especially the nice little touches, fresh flowers, dog treats etc. Loved the sun room!

Barbara & Barry,

Thank you for the welcome pack and pretty flowers. Serena is peaceful and relaxing. We have loved Suffolk.

Sue & Bob ,

Really enjoyed our week in Suffolk. The cottage is a great base for good days exploring this part of the world. Thank you for the welcoming treats, a nice surprise. A lovely cottage in a lovely village.

The Robinsons,

Enjoyed a lovely sunny weekend at this lovely cottage. A wonderful base for touring the beautiful locations of Suffolk. Each day ending with a sundowner in the local pub.

Barbara & David,

With a record breaking sunny weekend we had a fantastic stay in the beautiful cottage. Perfect base for exploring the Suffolk villages and coastal resorts. Cosy, homely and immaculately clean. Our 11 yr old daughter loved the Wii game console too much. Thank you for the treats. Would recommend.

Mr Black,

A lovely cottage, so well equipped and maintained. The flowers and goodies were a lovely surprise, Thank you.

Mr Tanner ,

Serena Cottage is a wonderful little cottage and we have enjoyed 3 trips to it over the last 3 years, all of which have been very pleasant.


Really lovely cottage - really appreciated the welcome, Christmas decorations, mince pies etc. Also various bits and bobs like cleaning stuff really help. The owners appear to be really thoughtful.

Mr Jonothan Tooth,

Lovely cottage in beautiful position- just a few steps away from the countryside and/or pub! I would definitely visit the cottage again.

Mrs Abigail Scully,

Charming cottage, a home from home.
