“Perfect peaceful retreat”
Reviewed August 29, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Everything about The Boathouse is first class and Donna and Ged make you feel very welcome. The house is immaculately clean and very well equipped. It is very comfortable and homely and there are lots of lovely touches. There is plenty to do in the area even when the weather is not great. We enjoyed a trip on the river on The Oystercatcher and several walks along the banks watching the wildlife and boats. We would happily recommend The Boathouse to anyone looking for a restful break in Suffolk.

“Absolutely Stunning Place to Stay”
Reviewed April 28, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

This holiday venue is situated right on the banks of the river Deben. There are two properties for rent, a small cottage that overlooks the river and a two story boathouse. We stayed in the boathouse for a total of 7 weeks during January to March and what a relaxing time it was. The boathouse is fully equipped except for a washing machine but everything we needed was supplied. The décor throughout was of a high standard. It all you would expect from a 5 star holiday let and more. We loved the underfloor heating that greeted us on our arrival back after walks along the river. There was a large bath and separate shower which were excellent. Just yards away, is a great pub ‘The Maybush Inn’ that serves top quality food. Staying at the boathouse entitled us to a 10% discount and given we was in there most nights it saved us a considerable amount of money. The area is very tranquil and an ideal place to stay if you want complete relaxation. The owners Donna and Ged are wonderful hosts and will ensure your stay is a memorable one. If you’re looking for a place to stay in this area, then look no further. We will be returning at some stage in the future..

Hi Chris and Alan,

Thank you for this great review. Much appreciated. We loved having you here, it was great to meet you. After such a long stay it felt like waving goodbye to family. Hope to see you again soon. If not here, maybe at the bar in The Maybush!
