“What a fabulous find!”
Reviewed 10 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We stayed as a family group over 3 generations with an age range of 7 to 70. Every one of us enjoyed it and are all keen to come back. Although there were 12 of us the house seemed to expand to cope with us all, including 4 lively children. It never once felt crowded and there was space for each of us to do our own thing.
The facilities are excellent - 6 en-suites made such a difference - no waiting to use the bathroom!
The finish and furnishings are so tasteful and comfortable. There's every piece of equipment you could want - right down to tea lights to add some atmosphere to the meal table which catered more than adequately for us all.
The booking process was easy and the 'welcome pack' of wine, tea, coffee, milk, flowers and a delicious cake were such wonderful touches.
We will definitely book again - in fact a friend who visited on the Sunday already has, she was so impressed. I hope this is helpful to anyone considering Burchley House

“Do Southwold in style”
Reviewed 4 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We've just spent a long weekend with friends in Southwold staying at Burchley House. It's in a superb location, the house is extremely well kitted out with beautiful decor. We couldn't recommend it highly enough.

“Delightful - but bring some pots and pans”
Reviewed 23 September 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We booked this property for a Christmas gathering with our large extended family. We know Southwold well, and it is brilliantly situated - just a short walk from the shops. The house is beautifully decorated and appointed, although the rather dismal view from the balcony (which appeared to be over a builders yard ) was disappointing.

Our only problem was that the beautifully laid out kitchen was not very well equipped - I had taken my own food mixer and turkey platter, but had to go out and buy a couple of serving bowls and platters as everything was so basic. The pans were mismatched, and the cutlery cheap and flimsy, without serving spoons - we could have lived with this, but there were only 10 place settings in a house that is supposed to sleep several more. This did not impact on our enjoyment - we borrowed extras from friends staying nearby -but is worth bearing in mind if you are catering for a special family meal.

Fantastic house! We have just spent 5 nights at Burchley House to celebrate a 60th birthday party and we had a great time. The house is beautiful and in a great location, just off the high street. I loved the kitchen and the quality of the appliances inside Burchley House. We had such a good time we are trying to book for next year!!

“Burchley house is a fantastic Holiday residence the best we've stayed in”
Reviewed 3 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

without doubt this was the best self catering holiday residence we have had. It comfortably housed all 13 of us with room to spare! We think Southwold's great and stayed in the town many times, this house enhanced our family holiday experience. The house has been built to a very high specification, which probably accounts for the few minor wear and tear issues encountered, which can only be expected 1/2 way through a holiday season.
