“Family friendly, location perfect”
Reviewed 9 April 2018 for a stay in April 2018

Lake Cottage was clean, comfortable and perfect for our annual family meet up. Grandad found his ground floor accommodation wonderfully accessible aided by the downstairs shower room. Upstairs there was plenty of room for the rest of us, with a lovely landing area and balcony for cousins to sit and chill out on. The kitchen diner was perfect for the whole family meals and evening family natters! The location suited us perfectly. The Meare was fun to take some boats out on and Aldeburgh near enough to stroll to. Perfect for us... would almost like to keep the place our secret!

“Lovely house in quiet location”
Reviewed 21 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

The house with 5 bedrooms was perfect for a family party. It was very clean and situated in a quiet private road close to the centre of Thorpeness. Thorpeness is unspoilt and right next to the sea. There is a huge manmade lake in the centre where you can hire canoes and rowing boats.
