What our customers are saying about our Christmas Cottages In Saxmundham To Rent.

"This property has so much potential, which is what made our experience all the more disappointing and frustrating. Firstly, the cottage was absolutely filthy when we arrived. Although the owner claimed to have cleaned it, there were food stains on the cooker, in the fridge and the sink, and the carpets were thick with dog hair. Very unpleasant. The owner wasn't interested in putting things right and although Cottages.com were tremendously helpful to us during our stay, we did end up spending the first hour of our holiday hoovering and cleaning. Not the best start. The advertised "welcome pack" consisted solely of a £2 bottle of co-op apple juice. No tea, coffee, sugar or milk and no sign of the promised initial supply of wood for the log burner either. (Even in mid-August, traditional stone built properties can get chilly late at night!)The kitchen is in no way adequately equipped for a week's self catering. The fact that it's a period property is no excuse for the complete lack of storage space, poorly working oven and dishwasher and washing machine whose door won't open without a ten minute struggle. We'd taken earlier reviews about the creaky floorboards upstairs with a pinch of salt - after all how bad can a creaky floorboard be?? Suffice to say they are every bit as bad as the reviews suggest and need urgent attention. This can be rectified - we had similar problems in our own house, and again, the "period" nature of the property is no excuse for its poor maintenance. Most worryingly, two of the three fire alarms in the property didn't work, suggesting the owners have as scant a regard for safety as they do for cleanliness and comfort. The property is in a great location, but we would definitely not return."

"Wow, what a lovely old cottage to stay in. So much character and lots of history about the cottage in the information pack which is very interesting. We stayed during the time of the snow and it was great to be snowed in! The owner was very understanding and offered us to stay on if we couldn't get home which was very reassuring to know. Everything is there that you need, very well equipped and the huge fireplace with the open fire just made our stay that much better. The room doesn't get smoky from the fire if you follow the guidelines on how to light it, we got it down to a fine art and it was so cosy. The garden was great for the dog she loved it. The only thing I wished we had was a pub within walking distance during the snowy weather but then there is one just over a mile away which would be a nice walk in better weather. If you are looking for a character cottage in a great location within easy reach of the coast and for all the family this is for you. We have stayed in a lot of holiday cottages and this really is one of our top ones to stay in, we loved it."

"Nice cottage and location, really liked the little back room and sunny back yard.Our main problem was the cleanliness, generally the cottage was clean but the sinks were dusty and splash backs in the kitchen and bathrooms were not clean. Toothpaste on the tiles in the bathroom was not pleasant and grease on the kitchen tiles and sockets yuk.I had to clean the fridge of sticky residue and crumbs as I did the breadbin.I am not a fussy person or a hygiene freak but all our previous cottages have been spotless and that's what we pay for! This was disappointing on it's cleanliness but a really nice cottage. It just needs a proper clean.Creaky floorboards lovely part of it's charm"

"A comfortable cottage for those seeking solitude in very rural surroundings whilst within 35 minutes of coastal resorts. We loved the setting, the fields and oak trees close by, plus the gardens and woods of the Clock House Estate to wander through or sit in after a day out visiting. A slight concern was the electric heating ect, through meters, and paid for at the end of stay ; this could be quite expensive in cold spells. Overall a pleasant relaxing holiday away from the hurley burley of modern life, with a most helpful Caretaker a 5 minute walk away for any problems or advice on the cottage."

"We had an ok time and the cottage is well positioned between Aldeburgh and southwold. Sadly it was infested with flies! I estimate about 100 mostly in the kitchen. It took the three days to get rid. Not what I was expecting. So many! They didn’t seem to want to leave. As they were In the kitchen this put us off cooking. It could do with a deep clean under and around the top cupboards. Can I suggest you have a folder or book of information telling people when the binmen come, local amenities, pubs, shops etc as I didn’t see anything. Beautiful cottage but sadly would not book again."
