Reviewed September 22, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

What a fabulous house - it has everything, including a fully equipped games room
Trudie (the owner) is so friendly and respectful of her guest's privacy. The standard of equipment, furnishings and fittings is far above what you would expect,
Dog friendly (Lily had a super time running arou8nd the large gardens.
I cannot praise this holiday location enough - we have had so many disappointments but this made up for them all.
Thank you Trudie - we WILL be back!

“Brilliant! It is a real hidden gem!”
Reviewed August 26, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed at this Beautiful house with my Son and his girlfriend that my Husband found on Tripadvisor for 7 nights 5th August.
On arriving Trudie the owner was there to welcome us, we instantly felt as if we had known Trudie for years, a really lovely lady, Trudie showed us all round the house and the garden, everything is just as you see it on the photos, garden all very well maintained. Trudie introduced us to her lovely donkeys Sophie and Rex, they are just adorable.
A lovely dining room, beautiful furniture, so spacious and same with the living room, lovely kitchen, also a games room with a pool table, dart board and table tennis , we certainly made use of the table tennis, just brilliant!.
Beds very comfortable, everything so spotless, there is a shower, toilet,upstairs and a bath and toilet downstairs.
Trudie told us about a great pub called The Parrot and Punch Bowl down the road for something to eat,
The beach is just a short walk across the road through woodland on a public footpath takes approx 20 minutes, takes you to Thorpeness past The House In The Clouds. Just about 5 minutes away by car there is mini markets and a selection of shops ,and great places to eat in Aldeburgh
Trudie treat us to a lovely tour around her beautiful garden where she lives next door, absolutely stunning, definitely is a treat, could have stopped in there hours.
It really is Aldeburgh's hidden gem! It's fantastic here with a great lady owner who makes you feel so welcome. Would recommend to anyone, who is wanting a really relaxing, peaceful break.
10/10

“Relaxation, Coastal and Country walks and active fun in the games rooms...you can have it all here”
Reviewed August 22, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

For a perfect getaway in Suffolk, make this your first choice!

When feeling active you can walk from the door of the cottage to a footpath opposite taking you into the lovely Suffolk countryside down to the Coast at Thorpeness.

Alternatively you could take a very short drive to the Aldeburgh for some relaxed clothes shopping with lots of choice for a bite eat afterwards and then a walk along the beach.

Want to cook and eat in to enjoy the games room fully & play some darts and table tennis on the full sized table? Just 10 minutes drive or so to a reasonable sized Co-op with local produce or a later opening smaller Tesco's with a reasonable section of 'finest' readmeal's at the same location.

Want to see wildlife and the sites from Spring Watch ? Explore Minsmere nature reserve or Dunwich Heath and Beach, it's all just a few minutes drive away.

Or simply relax on the sun lounges in the ample sized garden while the children are playing on the swing, meeting the Donkeys in the owners fields a short distance behind the property or playing in the Games Room!

Cottage itself is a good size for family getaway has comfortable beds, is nicely furnished and with attentive but relaxed owners and easy ample onsite Parking. (unlike many of the cottages in Aldeburgh )

At this cottage you can have it all with the best of the Suffolk on your very door step.

Book before everyone else discovers it!

“I was just so lucky to find this house!”
Reviewed April 5, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

person found this review helpful

The house is located between Aldeburgh and Aldringham in a very quiet location. It is one of the few in the area that is on two floors and has views of the sea one way and beautiful landscape the other.. I was just so lucky to be the first person to rent this house following complete restoration so it is in first class condition and beautifully furnished. I particularly like the main living area at the back of the house with it's picture windows and views over the private terrace and gardens. Trudie, the owner who lives in the house next door, couldn't be more helpful and welcoming. I was travelling alone on the occasion of my visit but would not hesitate to bring my family here as it is ideal for children with plenty of outside space and parking.
