“A very enjoyable week in a lovely house”
Reviewed June 3, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Holmlea is in a delightful location a few yards from the beautiful Deben estuary and the excellent Maybush pub with its stunning patio views. The house is spacious, well equipped, very clean and has a lovely, private back garden. Lots of local walks and within easy reach of interesting places to visit. Harry, the owner, was very helpful and provided lots of information. Highly recommended.

“Relaxation”
Reviewed May 29, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

A beautiful cottage in a beautiful location. The cottage is in excellent condition with modern fixtures and fittings yet at the same time cosy and classical. The river is stunning with lovely walks from the cottage. Lots to explore in Woodbridge, Ipswich harbourfront and further afield such as Aldeburgh and Snape. Pub a few houses down is a good treat and has great views .

“Paradise by the River”
Reviewed August 26, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Traveling with extended family can be stressful, but Holmlea, and its spacious rooms, made living with the family very comfortable, we all had enough space to not get in each other’s way. However, when we did want to enjoy each other’s company the dining table, which seated all 8 of us, made it very comfortable! My husband loves being out in the country, the house was perfect for afternoon strolls on all the public footpaths. The park down the street gave our kids a place to stretch their legs and some fun football exercise. The best part was the pub, very close to the house, where many good times were had by the old and young, Pints for us and brownies for the kids!

“The perfect family holiday home”
Reviewed August 19, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We have just visited Holmlea for the second time and we loved it just as much as the first time, it's a lovely house in a great location.
The home is perfect for a young family, with a fenced garden and space for games on the beautifully kept lawn. The large glass doors allow for adult supervision of the garden from almost anywhere on the ground floor of the house. The three bathrooms are a great asset, as is the large kitchen table whicb allows plenty of room for the extended family to eat together.
The village is quiet and friendly, although the well situated riverside pub is quite popular. The river is a stone's throw from the house and provides an endless source of entertainment for kids and adults.
The local area has plenty of attractions, including a transport museum (which the kids loved), Felixstowe beach and the animal park. There is also a large Tesco and other stores just a 10 minute drive away.
Overall Holmlea is highly recommended and we are looking forward to visiting again.

“Time of my life”
Reviewed July 24, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Our stay at Holmlea was fantastic. The home was clean, lots of light, and very spacious. The rooms and beds were clean and fresh. The pictures on the website described the place exactly. The town was awesome, the home is right next to a great pub, we spent much of our time their as well, great food and drink. I would recommend this place with 5 stars!

Another great feature is it had wi-fi, and we all needed that to keep in touch with our friends from home.
