“A lovely week spent at Martello Dawn for my parents 50th wedding anniversary celebrations, comfortable, spotlessly clean, great location, light and bright - Thank you”
“A very restful weekend, a lovely property with everything close by. Would recommend the house to others, especially for it’s nice views and lovely interior, thank you”
“We have had a very good week. The weather has been good and the house has everything one would need and the sunsets make the decking a great place to wind down after a busy day walking. We had a direct call from the owners to enquire about our comfort and satisfaction, this was much appreciated. Will probably return soon!! Thank you for such a great week”
“Booked 3 night stay for men to fish, amazing weather, ideal location but unfortunately only caught 3 fish!”
“Had a week at the house. We enjoyed our stay - we were lucky with the weather, dry and sunny (although cold wind most days). We would recommend the walk over to the foot passenger ferry to Harwich and the boat trip. The house is great and kept us hot and had everything we needed.”
"Thanks for letting us stay if only for a short while. We have stayed in may houses around the world and this is amongst the best, The very best."
