    "The cottage has been extended well. But the bathroom is old and worn and was not very clean. The kitchen was in need of updating, we struggled with the small fridge and icebox. The kitchen needs a good de-greasing, the cupboard doors are sticky to touch. When they spend the money to update this cottage it will rate higher. It is located a long way from the 'beach' and not well placed for other things."
    "This could be a lovely little holiday retreat if you want to travel back to the 1970's. The decor is in desperate need of updating, including the uncomfy pvc sofas. We were aware of a lack of shower due to poor water pressure, however the cottage has better water pressure than we have at home and we have a shower! We ordered our shopping to be delivered only to discover no freezer! 50 quids worth of food binned, something a self catering property that sleeps 6 must have! If nothing else the place needs a real good clean, cobwebs and hazy mirrors are all too common. Dont worry about taking your alarm either! The neighbour and his motorbike make sure you're up at 7 on the dot so there is no fear of sleeping iThat said The location is good, the local pubs and take aways are all good. The garden is lovely and was great for the dog. Good place to use purely as a base but thats about it."
    "A nice old cottage with enclosed garden and off road parking. Short walk to pub which did a variety of food and had entertainment at weekends,20mins walk to a quiet beach with restaurant and pub which does food with views of the beach. We enjoyed a peaceful week visiting nearby seaside resorts and walking on the beach"
    "The cottage has the potential to be lovely. However, as it is it lacks comfort. The sofas were really uncomfortable, as you keeping sliding off them. No shower was the major grievance for us. Information about the cottage, i.e. heating, bins etc would have been useful. Everything was rather tired and dated but the location was good."
    "Beautiful detached cottage in a very peaceful location. Fantastic for those seeking solitude and quiet!!!"
    "A lovely place to stay. Warm and comfortable and well equipped. Good centre for days out in locality."

    "Perfect family, holiday cottage with everything you need and more! Plenty of room for bigger families and pets. Washing machine and line, patio furniture and plenty of games and jigsaws. In an ideal location to explore Suffolk and Norfolk and Africa Alive is a must! July 2011."

    "Very cosy welcoming cottage. Taking disabled parents and a dog, it suited all our needs adequately. It was spotlessly clean and well equipped. The lady owner is very friendly and helpful and is only the other side of the garden fence. June 2011. "
