“Such a great little place. You won’t be disappointed.”
Reviewed June 5, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

We really loved this cosy cottage. It is beautifully appointed and very comfortable. What we loved most was being able to sit by the river and watch the boats and birds.
Ged is friendly and helpful but not intrusive.

“Lovely location, lovely host, lovely accommodation”
Reviewed October 14, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We were recommended to stay at the Boathouse by friends who had stayed a while ago. They said it was an unforgettable place to stay and having been here we can now agree. The welcome by Donna was very friendly indeed and she spent time showing us the facilities and chatting with us. We appreciated the cake she left for us! The quality of the accommodation is first class with Donna's artistic talent evident in the choice of furnishings and stunning photos. The River Deben is immediately outside the garden and is ideal for boating, cycling, fishing and walking. The local pub, The Maybush and its sister pub in the Fox Inn in the next village are superb for food and service (good idea to book). We had just three days but they were great days.

“Perfect accomodation,perfect location,perfect hosts”
Reviewed October 8, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

The seventh year of holidaying at The Boathouse,yes its that good.An ideal place to stay for singles or couples who are seeking a modern,superbly equipped,clean and uniquely located property.Peace and quiet abound in this area,ideal for riverside and country walks yet within easy travel of towns if needed.Plenty to see and do in the area or just sit by the riverside and leave the world behind.The owners will make you feel very welcome and 'at home'.

“Fantastic cottage”
Reviewed July 9, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Had a wonderful week in The Boathouse. A little gem. The quality of the furnishings and kitchen equipment is fantastic. Everything you could wish included for a self catering holiday. Although there is a lovely pub a few hundred yards away serving great food if you dont want to self cater. Will be returning again and again.

Reviewed June 23, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Returning to the Boathouse for rest & relaxation is like meeting up with old friends, just perfect.
Thanks to Donna & Ged for sharing that beautiful location and making everyone feel so welcome.
Great trip on the Misty Blue Rib with our very experienced host, thanks Ged.
Watching the river with glass in hand on their quayside is mesmerising.
