This was our third visit to Suffolk Escapes and it never fails with the lovely welcome from Andrew and the great welcome pack waiting for us, bread, eggs, milk, tea,coffee, cake and croissants and everything and more equipment in the lovely kitchen. There are some lovely picturesque villages and plenty of walks in the area, nothing like a long country...

Lovely peaceful location in the Suffolk countryside with top of the range log cabins. We visited in April in glorious Spring sunshine but the cabins are so well kitted out you could visit all year round and have an amazing time (the indoor wood burner is great). If you want to get away from the City for a weekend would...

We wanted a really restful break away, and boy o boy this is the place to go. We only had Monday to Friday and wished we had longer. We stayed in the Kersey cabin and every thing and I mean every thing that we needed was there. A warm welcome from Andrew when we arrived started our break away. We...

Just back from celebrating my 60th at the Suffolk Escape. We were a party of 7 and so hired two cabins Lavenham and Kersey which worked very well, allowing us to come together for meals etc but also allowed each couple an element of privacy. The cabins are superbly fitted out to a very high standard. We arrived to find...

Fantastic setting and extremely high standard accommodation - completely blasts centre parcs out of the water! Lots of lovely little touches that make this a very special place. We are here for our first holiday with our 2 month old daughter and couldn't have asked for better facilities (car next door to cabin, ample space for buggie storage, lots of...

Nothing more i can say than just transquil... What a lovely place to stay. The little treats you are left are divine and they have thought of everything to give a truly relaxing stay. We will definitely be returning for sure. Loved feeding the ducks too and waking up to such a beautfiul view over the lake in the morning....

Arriving on a friday evening, we were so pleased with the Southwold lodge that we had booked. Everything had been thought of from the heating being on, the home made cake and fridge foods, the welcome note etc etc. Waking on Saturday gave us the first look at the surroundings in daylight, with geese and ducks landing on the water...

We had a brilliant time here - the cabins are absolutely stunning, very luxurious but also crammed with all the essentials you need (we even had fresh pastries on arrival on top of milk, butter, tea bags etc). We had an 8 month old with us and the set up allowing us to have him in the other bedroom was...

Thank you so much for your kind review, I am so pleased your stay was so enjoyable. also thank you for the comments re the hot tubs. Yes we did a video on our website (Gallery page) and You Tube page which shows the position and view of each hot tub. They are all nice and private but Southwold and...

We never go back to places we've been, with one massive exception, The Suffolk Escape. The cabins are wonderful, we stay in "Southwold", and what struck us on this, our fourth visit, is that the cabin is as immaculate as it was the first time we visited when it was brand new. The team always work so hard, the welcome...
