“Beautiful location, lovely house. Fabulous spot for a weekend away”
Reviewed January 22, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

Great house in a fabulous location. Such a stunning village with its own special history and architecture. Short walk to pub with great restaurant, shops, tennis courts and seaside. Loads to see in nearby vicinity. House roomy, comfortable and well furnished with all those kitchen essentials. Will definitely be back.

“Lovely location and loads of space”
Reviewed April 10, 2017 for a stay in March 2016

We had a great weekend in Thorpeness. The house is really well equipped; a real home from home. Loads of space inside and out. Badminton table and lots of board games at the property were fun.The local pub (the Dolphin) is very near with excellent food and a big garden. The beach is minutes away. The walk into Aldeburgh is great and we enjoyed the good selection of shops and had the delicious fish and chips on the beach.

“Lovely Weekend Stay”
Reviewed March 1, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Together with a group of friends, we stayed at West Dene for a weekend break.

We were not disappointed with this pleasant and spacious house. Just around the corner from the one pub in the village (the Dolphin).

Staying in the village of Thorpeness was an enjoyable experience with all the nice-looking and very different designs of the various properties.

Would definitely consider West Dene when going back to Thorpeness.

“Warm and friendly place to spend Christmas”
Reviewed December 31, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

Westdene is a big, very warm house in a lovely village by the sea, a great place for a holiday at any time of the year. We spent Christmas here with family and everyone had a great time. Only complaint was the cleanliness of the kitchen. I think the oven had been well used by the previous occupants and overlooked by the cleaner. The house could maybe use some updating but the fact that it's a well loved family holiday home is part of its charm.

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?
