The cottage is nicely converted and situated in a quiet location close to the village centre. There are plenty of footpaths close to hand so we didn't need a car to walk the dogs or start exploring the countryside. In Covid times, many of the pubs need to be booked in advance but we found Mrs T's fish and chips on the quayside at Southwold was hardRead more to beat. The owners were very helpful and provided lots of local recommendations. Hide

Lovely little cottage, perfectly fine for us for a few days. A little chilly first thing in the mornings in September, there's lots of glass and just one radiator in the lounge/diner/ kitchen, so I think you'd need the log burner going over winter.

Lovely place to stay, nice village with a shop. The property was comfortable it had everything we needed, The garden is enclosed ,so was ideal for our dog. The only issue was the light waking us early in the morning, thick curtains would solve this. We were made very welcome. we would recommend this place.
