Scruffier furniture and fittings than we expected.. Garden uncared for. (Building work at Hall Farm didn't help with noise all day)

The house was clean on arrival which gave confidence under the current conditions and the owner was very helpful in answering a couple of questions.. There was a lack of crockery which was very frustrating; I would expect at least 6 plates, bowls etc. but there were only 4 for the 5 of us so we had to improvise. Other than that, it was well positioned for walks to the sea front (Footpath across the playing fields and past the allotments is mobility scooter friendly) and visiting the local attractions. Supermarkets are a couple of minutes walk away and there are a garden centre, retro clothes shop and cafe on the farm which all provide interest without being intrusive. We had a lovely holiday here, helped by the wall-to-wall sunshine no doubt.

Lovely welcome pack - which the dog loved in particular- great touch.. The cottage had clearly been cleaned but we did find few clumps of dog hair which wasn't an issue (as we know how difficult it is to get rid of) except the one in one of the beds!. Biggest bug bear which is no fault of the owner was the loud music and drum practice played every night by the neighbours! Lovely venue- about 15 minutes walk into town and to the beach- unable to drive down due to social distancing in the town.

Let's start with the positives.. The cottage was well located for walking into Aldeburgh and for local shops and for travelling further afield. The beds were comfortable and bed linen of a good quality. The bedrooms were well furnished with storage and of a good size. The sitting room furniture was comfortable. There was adequate parking for two cars and a lovely big garden. There was constant hot water for bathing and showering. However there are some issues we feel need attention, some of which have been mentioned by previous holidaymakers and not acted upon. The toilet seat in the bathroom was too small and moved around and was very unpleasant to use. The tap in the cloakroom ran constantly no matter how firmly it was turned off. There was not enough crockery particularly mugs and large plates and some were chipped. The two blue garden chairs could do with being replaced as they are very rusty. And lastly we think the cleaner could do with a cobweb duster, especially in the bathroom.

As you state that dogs are welcome it was disappointing to find that the garden was not secure and we could not let our dog out unless we went also.. We could not find any instructions on how to set the Microwave and the Dishwasher. Other instructions were in different places in the house. We would suggest that instructions for all appliances and equipment were kept in the folder which we found in the lounge. The toilet seat in the bathroom upstairs was loose and appeared to be the wrong size - very uncomfortable to sit on!! The Doggy treats were much appreciated and in general we found the cottage comfortable and friendly.

If we had not have paid for this Cottage we would never have stayed there as it was we packed on Christmas Day pm and left a day early, the reasons being.. 1/ On arrival the house was freezing cold with no heating on and water dripping down the hallway walls,which we did not discover until we tried to use our hats and scarfs, they were wet! There were no directives on how to use the Log Burner or Heating, they were found two days later under a box game under the coffee table! 2/ As we walked into to hall way on arrival the carpet was badly stained and looked awful. 3/ There was the smell of Human Urine in one area of the Lounge. 4/ The Lounge Cushions smelt so badly that we had to wash them. 5/ Windows and general cleanliness were not good at all. 5/ The Cooking Pans were disgusting and had to be scrubbed not washed before we could use them and it was Christmas so we needed them! 6/ We were told we could take our dogs and only found out when we got there that there was not one safe fenced off area to put them in and so had to stand outside with them day or night, the first two days was in pouring rain and always aware that were cars using the roadway all day! The Laundry was clean and we were left a Christmas Cake and Dog Treats.

The property would benefit from the garden being made secure for the dog..

Not enough crockery to warrant using Dishwasher also some plates chipped

This is a comfortable cottage in a quiet location on farmland but only 10 minutes walk to Aldburgh's many eating places.. Anyone interested in the art world will enjoy the link this property has to a well known Suffolk artist.

Lovely cottage, great location, fantastic weather, lots of things to do.. Within walking distance of the beach (even with a 4 year old). Would highly recommend.

It was a pleasant and calm environment, a lovely cottage only a few minutes away from the marvelous beach.. We arrived and and felt good! The long journey from southern Germany was worthwhile. Also our children enjoyed their holidays very very much!

This is our second holiday in this cottage and we really enjoyed the location and the house was fine.. A welcome gift for my dog was a lovely touch and much appreciated. Just a couple of small things would have improved our stay. The kettle seriously needs descaling and there is insufficient crockery, especially mugs and dinner plates. These are only minor things and didn’t detract from our enjoyment of the cottage.

The directions for the last few hundred yards getting there , if coming from the opposite direction to those assumed , would be helpful..
Mr Hughes
September 2018
Lovely clean and well appointed cottage with the added bonus of beautiful artwork in rooms.. On a farm approach, adjacent to a garden centre and cafe, close to Aldeburgh town centre, very well placed. Be aware, though, that the garden is not enclosed and is open to the approach lane. This was not a problem for our dog, but it may well be for other families with dogs.
Ms Wyld

Very homely, comfortable and warm cottage.. Lots of room and lots of facilities. The garden was extensive, surrounding three sides but doesn't have a gate so if you have a roving dog you need to keep it on the lead. We could have done with having the grass cut as it was long and rather damp to get through first thing in the morning. But there's a clothes line and pegs outside and a picnic table. Kitchen well equipped and a lot of basics supplied in the larder. A very nice welcome present for us and our dog was a nice touch. The farm gave home to several retired horses and there was an extensive amount of rough walking over the marshes at the back. A small Co Op and Tesco three minutes walk away and the centre of Aldeburgh about the same in the car.

There are no reviews on this cottage, because this is not a visitors book to do so.. on entrance the cottage smells strongly of damp, the oven to dirty to use, the mattress on all beds not only old and worn but very uncomfortable, the bath had no hand grips to help a person out, you advertise DVD's player, entertainment, freeview television, there is no dvd's or player, one family card game, TV channels 1 - 5 ok but only two freeview channels, lights in the livingroom so dull you could not read. Overall the most disappointed booking we have ever experienced and not worth the money paid. I think this property should have a future inspection from your company

Lovely cottage and very thoughtful of Sharon to provide us with treats for our puppy.. Spacious garden not completely enclosed but not a problem for us as our pup stayed close. Shower was poor, hard to find a comfortable temperature and very low flow - our only complaint! Enjoyed buying plants from the attached farm shop.

Comfortable cottage with lovely garden..
Mrs Mynott

Although this cottage is slightly basic, it has everything necessary for a comfortable and happy holiday.. What is probably not emphasised in the brochure is how convenient this property is in relation to the town, supermarkets and local cafe, which serves excellent breakfasts, lunches, snacks and really good coffee. The supermarket is a 3 minute walk away and the town, 10 - 15 minutes. The garden is large and quite secluded. When we arrived the owner had thoughtfully informed us of a charity event ‘Music by the sea’ and provided the necessary wrist bands for us to attend. The only negatives were the shower, which promptly stopped when any other taps were turned on. The brochure states there are numerous games and dvd’s but there was no evidence of these. Also the DVD player was on a small tv in the bedroom and not on the main tv. However, these did not detract from a lovely holiday and we will definitely return.

Lovely cosy cottage in great location.. Even the dreadful weather didn’t dampen our experience too much. The log burner was certainly a great bonus on this cold weekend
Mrs De Coster

Was happy overall with the cottage, with just a couple of negatives.. Being a dog friendly cottage it would have been nice to have an enclosed area for my dog to wander round in, but as it was I had to keep taking her out on the lead. The bath was very slippery when getting a shower so had to buy a mat to stand on and the bath towels were very small and thin.

Very quiet location but within very easy reach of all facilities.. Overall we found it extremely pleasant and ticked all our boxes.
