This little cottage was very nice. the location is great for a quiet, relaxing break, but you do need a car to get around. The owners live next door and are friendly enough without being too intrusive. The cottage is very well equipped and all the crockery and cutlery looks quite new.

The cottage was very comfortable, with everything we needed readily available, and all good quality. The low door frames and old doors added to the charm, but you have to remember to duck! The owner, next door, was very helpful, especially when we needed help in having a wheelchair delivered unexpectedly. Without that, we would have been snookered.

We had a wonderful week in this beautiful cottage. It had everything we could have asked for comfort, charm, cleanliness and an extremely high quality of kitchen equipment which is important to us. The owners are next door and on hand if you need them, but not intrusive. We had a slight problem with a cooker knob and they sorted it out immediately.Read more I would definitely recommend this cottage. The location is brilliant with places like Lowestoft, Norwich and Southwold only a short drive away. Hide
