“quality cottage and location”
Reviewed 24 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

we loved the boathouse - very peaceful, great views of the estuary, nice walks, friendly owners and a quality cottage. Definitely a place to return to, maybe rent both cottages with friends. The Maybush Inn nearby serves great food too and service is good despite the crowds at times.

Liked best: The attention to detail in the accommodation, from the (free & unexpected) welcome pack of wine, chocolates, cake and milk, to the range of utensils and equipment in the kitchen and bathroom.
Liked least: The view of the river from our balcony - although close - was not quite as uninterrupted as we had expected.

“Amazing stay - can't wait to return”
Reviewed 13 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014
1
person found this review helpful

My boyfriend and I recently stayed here for 2 nights and I can safely say it was the best weekend of the year. The Boathouse is an adorable property and has been furnished and finished to an immaculate standard. Donna and Ged provided a genuinely warm welcome and made us feel part of the family for the time we were there. We ate at the Maybush Inn (also highly recommended) on the first night and then cooked on the second. Unlike other self catering properties we have stayed in everything we needed to cook was supplied and cooking was as easy as if we were at home. Despite the weather not being great we had an amazing stay, the boathouse is ideally located as it is in a tranquil location but close to places to visit and general amenities e.g. there is a tesco extra 10mins away. Cannot wait to return soon.

“stylish retreat”
Reviewed 5 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

I stayed in The Boathouse with my girlfriend recently and cannot recommend it highly enough! It is a holiday cottage which has been stylishly decorated and is simply impeccable. Donna & Ged ensured we had everything we needed and couldn’t do enough to help - this really added to the overall experience of our stay. The Boathouse is equipped with a beautiful kitchen so you can prepare your own meals, I can also recommend the Maybush pub which is a 2 minute walk away. There is free wi-fi for those who want to stay connected. If you want to escape however, the River Deben is literally on your doorstep and there is some amazing local scenery to see. This was a perfect location for us as we like to be active and outdoors, but would be equally suitable for those who like to kick back and relax on their holidays in comfort. 5 stars!
