Reviewed yesterday NEW

A nice guesthouse . The stay slightly soured by the pricing. Sixty pounds a night is not cheap, but the first night they were unable to provide breakfast (I was told this in advance) and said I would receive a rebate. This turned out to be five pounds (not enough to get a sausage sandwich and cup of coffee locally).No...

Thanks for your review. We are sorry you felt your stay was soured by our pricing. £60 is a very reasonable rate around here for a double ensuite room. This is a very popular tourist area, and we are certainly the most reasonable B and B around this area. £5 is always what we deduct/charge for breakfast and we can...

The countryside, the hosts, the building -- everything was perfect. What a thrill to eat breakfast in a several hundred year old (and very comfortable) structure. I've gotta find a way back here someday.

A lovely quaint little cottage, with excellent hosts. Lovely breakfast which set us up well for our day at RSPB Minsmere. Will be going back as it was such a nice place to stay and handy for the coast.

Just returned from a 4th stay here in the last 3 months while visiting nearby family - what better recommendation! Bedrooms are well equipped, spotlessly clean and comfortable. Fantastic home cooked breakfast served in lovely dining room. Val and Andy are very welcoming, kind, friendly and make you feel very much at home. We will be booking another visit there...

We stayed for only one night but wish we could have stayed for longer. Hosts (Val and Andy) were very welcoming and knowledgeable of the local area and good places to eat, we felt at home! Bedroom had all the amenities and very quiet! The location was very convenient and we also got freshly made breakfast in the morning. Would...

We stayed at Holly Cottage mainly as we had been there before and remembered the excellent breakfast! We arrived after dark and spotted the cottage easily - it is sited on a a main road which makes it easy to get to and from. Parking was good, lots of space and close to the house so we did not get...

We were very happy to get a room to stay at this well located B&B. The owners were very welcoming and we found our ensuite double bedroom to be spotlessly clean. We were able to enjoy a quick cup of tea while we unpacked and before rushing out by taxi to the birthday celebration in nearby Southwold. After a very...

Val and Andy are very welcoming and work very hard to look after their guests. They did far more than I would have expected (including fixing up a bke for me to cycle to Minsmere on and driving me to and from the station and to the pub for dinner). I highly recommend this B&B.

“'The Hobbits' is an apt name for the room we had. If you're more than 4' 6" tall you're at risk of bumping your head! It had the advantage of being at the back of the house - away from the busy road. ”
