Guest reviews

  • I came with my partner, my 4 year old son, and my elderly father and his partner.  We have had the most wonderful week here. The house is comfortable and a pleasure to stay in, we have all slept well, relaxed thoroughly and enjoyed the garden. 

    The beach, the crabbing, the ferry to Southwold, the walk to the village shop, tea and cakes @ the tea rooms, lunch @ the Anchor, lobster and chips @ Sole Bay Fish Company just across the river, flying kites, Southwold pier and boating lake, Camel Oasis, surrounding villages, it has all been a joy.. and a big thank you to Trish Gower, managing agent, for her excellent suggestions and general communication.  We plan to be back next year..
