“Best holiday rental ever”
Reviewed 16 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Location is amazing with opportunities to walk from cottage. Cottage itself is well equipped with views from kitchen to enable bird watching with home comforts. Local owners have lavished attention to detail on this cottage and are welcoming and available if there are any queries. The newly installed central heating was a little technical for us to follow instructions, it was sorted within the hour. So simple when you know how and heating most welcome on chilly evenings and to have a hot shower after a day birdwatching in this stunning locality. Needless to say it is one of our favourites and we are looking forward to a return visit

“Beautifully appointed, clean, cosy and in a wonderful location”

Meadow Cottage is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the countryside. It is just a mile from the entrance to the RSPB Minsmere reserve and as such is the perfect place for nature lovers. There is a book in the cottage for guests to list the wildlife they have spotted during their stay.

This lovingly restored period cottage is very well appointed. Everything is clean. Everything works. Everything looks nice. I love the Cath Kidston bed linen and cushions, the pretty dresser and the cottage garden planting.

The village is Eastbridge is tiny - there is no shop or church - but it boasts an excellent pub. The Eels Foot Inn is just a short walk from Meadow Cottage and provides excellent food, cycle hire and a great folk music session (on Thursday nights). There is plenty to do in the surrounding area, Eastbridge being roughly equidistant between Southwold and Aldeburgh. It's about a half hour walk from the cottage to the beach, but less than 10 minutes by car.

So far we've had two holidays at Meadow Cottage and we will definitely return. Highly recommended.

“The most stylish yet practical holiday cottage in an idyllic location”
Reviewed 8 May 2014 for a stay in December 2012

We had such a brilliant stay at Meadow Cottage. Our first visit was for New Year, so the cottage was beautifully decorated and still felt really festive (the owner gave us the option of decorations still up or not). Was so impressed with the cottage - it's the perfect mix of stylish interior and all of the attention to detail has been thoroughly thought through. Our two young children had an absolute ball and everything that we needed was there. The interior decor is just gorgeous and it's a really warm and welcoming home to stay in. We especially loved the downstairs wet room and having a bath upstairs for the kids made life a lot easier. The location was just perfect, and we loved spending days out in the fantastic countryside surrounds - there's SO much to do there even in wet weather that there was never a 'dull' day. But we really enjoyed coming home to the log fire and home cooked meals, often getting something from one of the local farm shops for our supper. Minsmere bird reserve is an absolute must and you couldn't be better placed. This is a brilliant holiday home for anyone of all ages and you'd be hard pressed to find another one that is so well thought out and equipped.
