What our guests say

“We have had a super week exploring this part of the wold.  We have had the most glorious weather and have spent much time on the coast.  We particularly enjoyed Framlingham and Southwold as well as quieter locations such as Orford, Walberswick and Sizewell.  Very good meals at the White Horse at Badingham and the White Hart at Blythburgh.  The cottage was a perfect base – we loved the garden room and the very pretty garden.”
