"We really enjoyed our stay at the Stone House! We also liked the space and the garden was amazing! It had a good amount of room. The house was in a brilliant location because we went to lots of new places (we've been to Suffolk before) like Sizewell. We also hired bikes for the day! It was amazing, we went to the beach nearly everyday! Thank you"
"What a beautiful cottage - everything you could need for a perfect break - thank you, great location for exploring this lovely county"
"We have had a very peaceful stay. We enjoyed the eggs from the Stone House chickens, the people at the Star pub a short walk away are really friendly and a great place to walk to for a drink and dinner"
"Enjoyed our stay in this lovely house. Many thanks for the welcome supplies. Been to Southwold many times and it is always a pleasure to visit again. Now that we have found this little gem we would love to come and stay again. Thank you"

Stone House retains many period features with steep and narrow steps which may be challenging for guests with a mobility issue, however, there is a handrail all the way; there are also a number of internal steps both downstairs and upstairs. There are also low door frames. The garden’s fully enclosed so great for children and pets although it’s on many levels so young children will need to be supervised.
