Guest reviews

  • We had a lovely, lovely stay thank you. The setting at the back of the cottage is so tranquil.. We were so grateful for the bike storage and rode every day. We loved spending the evenings at Dunwich and had lovely walks on Dunwich Heath. We loved the Black Dog Deli and had a fantastic cuppa at the Tea Shed in Walberswick where the staff were lovely.  For the first time we visited Minsmere and would definitely go back. We love the quiet, almost traffic free lanes that are easily accessible from the cottage. the cottage itself has good facilities and the kitchen is great for self-catering. The cottage was very clean and we had every confidence in the light of covid. M & M August 2021
