“Charming little cottage”
Reviewed August 15, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We booked Stable cottage for a three night break and found it to be ideal. It`s clean and comfortable and well equipped. The kitchen area is small, not much worktop space, but fine for preparing simple meals. It`s only a few minutes walk into Saxmundham where there are a couple of pubs and several restaurants so you have the choice to eat in or go out.
We both slept well in the comfortable bed and there was always plenty of hot water for showers.
There`s a large chest of drawers in the bedroom but no wardrobe, just some hangers, so you have to hang clothes on the back of the door. We also felt a towel rail would be useful as we had to hang towels over the bannister to dry after we`d showered.
Outside there`s an attractive patio with table and chairs which makes a lovely place to sit with a glass of wine.
There are many interesting places to visit within a short drive of Saxmundham and Stable cottage provides a great base from which to explore the area. The owners, Lucy and Tim, live in the adjoining house and came round to check all was ok. If you want a cosy, attractive holiday rental for two in this area Stable cottage is ideal..

Anne and her husband were wonderful guests to host. Anne was very pleasant to communicate with and left a lovely message following her stay. She looked after the cottage so beautifully. We cannot recommend her highly enough. Thank you Anne! Best wishes Tim & Lucy

“Charming Flint cottage on the picturesque heritage coast, tfrom the beach!”
Reviewed June 17, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We had a lovely stay at Lucy's stable cottage and thoroughly enjoyed it. Everything was exactly as described and had loads of country charm. The cottage is on the heritage coast, with loads of nice places to visit nearby. Lucy was a great host, super friendly and welcoming! I would definitely come back here and recommend staying here to my friends. The location is great; in a very beautiful and rural part of Suffolk, close to the nature reserves at Minsmere and Orford Ness (15 minutes), and a short drive (10 minutes) from fish and chips on the beach in Aldeburgh. Given the cottage's convenient location, it's also a real bonus to be within walking distance of a good local pub!

Liz and her partner were perfect guests. They were very friendly, excellent communication when booking, staying in the cottage and departure. Liz looked after Arwen cottage with great care and left it clean and tidy. Thank you for being a great guest Liz. We would be lucky to welcome you back in the future.

“Comfortable and clean”
Reviewed October 23, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

A tidy, comfortable cottage with everything I needed for a short trip. Only tiny issue was difficulty putting in the code for the gate in the dark!

Thank you for the review. It was great hosting you. Clare arrived quite late after the wedding she attended, so at that time the lights on the street were off.
