Guest reviews

  • Dear Trish
    Just a message to say how much we enjoyed our stay at September Cottage recently (1st - 4th June).
    You found us the perfect place to stay, and we loved the cottage. Thank you.
    It was our first visit to Suffolk, and I hope it will not be our last. We very much appreciated the peace and tranquillity of the countryside, and enjoyed trips to Walberswick, Southwold, Thorpeness and Aldeburgh. There is much more to come back and explore another time.
    Many Thanks and Kind Regards
