Myself and my daughter had a wonderful few days here,the birth place of Benjamin Britten. Ann and Colin gave us a warm welcome and we felt at home right away. Our room was lovely and clean and the en suite was a good size. The full English breakfast was amazing, all cooked by Ann! She also makes her own preserves... More

I am glad you had a lovely weekend. Our Maritime museum is run by volunteers and they are so passionate about our local history on the sea. There are also two other museums in the park also. Perhaps if you come again you can visit those and also the Lowestoft museum. Kind regards Ann More

Made Lowestoft (211 miles from Dover) and stayed in this well appointed and friendly guest house where Benjamin Britten (the classical composer of "Young Person's Guide" and "Peter Grimes" fame) was born and grew up. We stayed in the Schubert room overlooking the sea and had an excellent breakfast the following morning. We will be back for the start of... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. It is surprising the number of cyclists who stay with us. Your visit to Lowestoft ticks two boxes, the first that we are the most Easterly point in England and Second that Benjamin Britten was born at Britten House, and was inspired by the beauty of the sunrises over the...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was fun to stay somewhere with historical interest, we slept in the room that Britten is believed to have been born in! The room was very nicely furnished and extremely spacious with everything we would need including a mini fridge and luxurious linen. The owners were very pleasant and gave us lots of information...

A Great B&B will fulfil three needs, the bedroom, the bathroom and the breakfast. I am so glad you enjoyed all three, especially the breakfast. I look forward to cooking for you again next time. Kind regards Ann More
