Guest reviews

  • ‘This is a splendid cottage. We were very impressed with the kitchen equipment, which is far superior to most holiday venues. Four days birdwatching and visiting churches has been enjoyable despite the odd damp spell.’ HD April 2019





    We would like to thank you for making us feel very welcome in your home. We truly appreciate what you prepared for our little one and for putting up the lovely Christmas decorations. We had a very good and relaxed holiday in your beautiful place and we will definitely return.

    Wow! What good taste and this beautiful cottage has everything we could have asked for. Our dog loved the garden and walks on the common. Walberswick fantastic as is Southwold beach and the tea hut at the far end. Also good fish from the harbour. Great weather and feel rested, thanks.

    We echo all the previous comments. The cottage is lovely and beautifully equipped – no meanness here! The weather has been amazing enabling us to enjoy the gorgeous coast and countryside. It seems that everywhere is worth a visit. We have been to Southwold, Aldeburgh, Snape Maltings, Bungay to name but a few. The RSPB Reserve at Minsmere is also well worth a visit.

  • We love Evas's Cottage, so lucky to find this last minute! The cottage has everything you need for a restful holiday. We will definitely be back, thank you Trish for all your help. NG September 2018 

  • We had a lovely break thanks, with good weather too, which is always a bonus! The Cottage was ideal for us, comfortable, well equipped and with everything we needed - it really was a home-from-home. PC September 2018

    It was an exceptionally well-equipped cottage. Great time, thank you. ST August 2018

  • How happy we have been in this adorable cottage with its beautiful garden! Thanks so much, we will be back for sure! SW  August 2018

    A beautiful renovation of a delightful cottage, coupled with a spirit of generous hospitality has made this a truly enjoyable break.  Thank you! JA July 2018

  • The first guest to stay at Eva's Cottage but I certainly won't be the last! This tastefully decorated little cottage is a cosy retreat for a couple and just perfect for a solo visitor too. Miranda has thought of everything ~ the bottle of Adnams (of course!) was a lovely touch. 

    It has been delightful sitting out in the patio garden with just birdsong for company and the heady scent of summer flowers in the evening. The little front garden is brimming with cottage garden plants also and is beautifully tended.

    There are leaflets and information plus maps on how to spend your days. I know the area well as I spent my childhood growing up in Suffolk ~ the draw to come back to visit Southwold & Aldeburgh is always there. This time a first visit to covehithe beach didn't disappoint.

    Woodbridge and its Tidemill and River Deben, Shingle Street and Snape Maltings are perfect for days out too. Take a boat across to Orford Ness to see the lighthouse, before it is reclaimed by the sea, you will be amazed by the wilderness and solitude!

    Walberswick has become a firm favourite that I always visit ~ walking across the marshes and sandlings here and all the footpaths in the village here itself are magical.

    Don't forget to explore Wenhaston Church opposite ~ the Doom is spectacular. Also, enjoy a drink and delicious food at 'The Star' pub up the road ~ live music is a regular feature too.
    After the excitement of a day exploring coming back to Eva's Cottage is a delight!
    Thank you Miranda and Trish for a perfect stay ~ I really don't want to leave but I'm sure I will be back! Shelagh  June 2018
