Self-Catering Reviews

Mrs Holman

For a house of this size I would expect to have a tumble dryer available, there was an airer but during the wet weather this is not sufficient.. A shaver socket in one of the bathrooms would also be useful. With the lovely woodburner available a supply of logs would be much appreciated at very little cost to the owners.

Great house and garden.. Good countryside location - and around 30 mins from many beaches, walks and other attractions . Excellent service from Owner.

Great house.. Lots of info provided in online guide by owners. Covid meant for obvious reason the kitchen was less equipped than normal but owners happily and quickly supplied extra items we required. Great enclosed garden which was ideal for our dogs. Fantastic location too.

Great house, very clean and comfortable.. Shame we couldn't access the property until 5pm but understand why

This was a special week to celebrate three family birthdays, so three generations came together.. The children and the dog really enjoyed the garden which was so spacious and private too. Some of the adults enjoyed time to cook together for us all. We didn’t go out some days as it was so relaxing in the house and garden. There is masses to see and do in the area and some beautiful beaches. Thanks for such a wonderful holiday!

So lovely to be able to spend time with the family in this beautiful house.. All was perfect and welcoming when we arrived, and a great house for us all to explore - two staircases makes for good fun! As did the ground floor and first floor "circuits" through various rooms. My only negative comment is that there were no SMALL sharp knives, otherwise wonderfully appointed! We found some good places to visit - St Peter's Brewery for one, very close by, good for a run or a stroll, depending on who you are! Then various coastal places - Sea Life Centre at Great Yarmouth, Southwold and Aldeburgh, and a great trip to RSPB Minsmere.

Wonderful cottage, manage comfortably with 7 adults and 6 childern under 7.. Plenty of space and a brilliant sized garden. One of the cleanest places I've stayed at! Only draw back is 1 shower, just made mornings a little more regimented. A great place to spend a few days relaxing and enjoying the time with the family.

The house was great, very clean, well decorated, larger than impressions photos gave and everything we could possibly need for our stay.. Fantastic in every way.

This was a wonderful place for a multigenerational family holiday.. The four boys and dad and grandad played football in the garden for hours. The four dogs thought they were in heaven in the secure garden. Nanny elderly aunt mummy and baby all mucked in with the cooking etc. It was a really lovely family holiday.

Beautiful garden beautiful house lovely surrounding countryside with lots of interesting places to visit for all ages House is 600 yrs old so comes with a few little problems like hot water adjustments and uneven floors and needs a bit of TLC here and there and owner is addressing these but didn't detract from enjoyment of our holiday ..

St Michael's House is certainly a period property and is indeed listed under English Heritage.. It is a charming property, and had ample room for all 8 of us. A couple of issues arose during the week, and Sykes and the owner and corrected these. However, one of the issues had clearly been there for some time looking at the comments book. It is a lovely place for a family to stay, and our grandchildren enjoyed the garden and we had two barbeques. The kitchen diner is good for a relaxed breakfast and then using the huge dining room table for evening meals. The dishwasher and washing machine worked perfectly. Our criticism would be that the refurbishment of the property is not yet complete. Consequently, some of the windows would not open upstairs, which made a couple of the rooms extremely stifling in the present hot weather. Perhaps a couple of fans could be provided. I am aware that we don't normally have this sort of hot weather for weeks on end, however sleeping was really quite uncomfortable, especially in the single room upstairs, and the small double room. If I were to be pernickety, I would also suggest that one shower for 8-10 people causes some logistical problems. A lovely area, within easy reach of the sea at Dunwich, Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth, Bungay and Beccles are lovely little towns, and Norwich is not that far if you wish to go there.

What a wonderful house.. A family group of nine with a wheelchair user go away for four/five days every year and this was by far the best property we have stayed in. The house was spotless, it was so well equipped with extra towels, bedding should it be needed, the kitchen was well euipped too. The location was perfect and the garden beautiful. The owner Andy very welcoming and hands on with any queries we had. A lovely stay and we're already making arrangements about returning, Thank you!

Lovely cottage with good facilities.. Beds comfortable and the linen and towels clean and plentiful. Great garden for dogs. There could have been more wine glasses - only just enough to go around. Would recommend to friends

Beautiful cottage.. Very comfortable, clean and well appointed. Beds very comfortable. Easy to check in - owner very helpful. Very peaceful idyllic location. Perfect for a family gathering which we had for an 80th birthday. Plenty of excellent dog friendly local pubs / restaurants.

St Michael's house was really comfortable and cosy.. There was plenty of room indoors and outdoors for our party of 5+2 dogs. It was comfortably warm all day and lovely to come home to after our country walks. Sofas and beds were comfortable and the house was well equipped to suit our holiday needs. It's a very rural setting, though not isolated, which that suited us as we were able to set out directly from the house for our walks with the dogs on the numerous country paths. Overall, the house had a lovely welcoming feeling and our hosts were generous both in their welcoming treats and in the degree of thought they gave to ensuring our comfort and enjoyment of their property.
Mrs Lucas

Overall the house met our requirements very well.. We would like to query the suitability of the downstairs 'bedroom'. It didn't have any privacy ..... window and door with glass panel open to the hallway. The owner did put up a voile type curtain when we mentioned this but it was far from adequate. The room was very cold, it looked as if it had been a porch of some sort originally. There were no facilities for clothe storage. We didn't feel it met the needs of a child or elderly person. The upstairs bedrooms were very comfortable, beds and linen very good. We felt that in a large party it would be who 'got the short straw' scenario with the downstairs bedroom. Suggest it is converted back to access to the back garden, there is an outside door in the room. This was the only negative to the house. The house is well equipped and situated in a lovely peaceful area. The garden was fantastic for the dogs.

Had a great time, loved the house and garden, and the great weather was a welcome bonus.. We explored the local villages and towns and made full use of the local dog friendly cafes,coffee shops and pubs. The description of the property is accurate and the one little problem that we had was sorted quickly by the owners. Highly recommended Have just rebooked to return in 2018
Mrs Rosamond
September 2017
The house is full of charm and character and located in a very peaceful village.. There is lots to do in the surrounding area, we particularly liked the St Peter's Hall brewery and restaurant.
Mr Peters

The quirkiness of St Michael's House was fun, it was peaceful and relaxing - even the children were happy to stay in and just relax.
Miss Swann

We had a great time at the House, everything was spotless, and it was great to have such good WiFi.
Mr Gregory
October 2015
The House was spotlessly clean and is in a good location for touring. It is well equipped and has an excellent safe garden for young children. The House was lovely and warm and all fixtures and fittings were in good order. I would not hesitate to recommend this property.
Mrs Baker
October 2015
We loved the space inside the cottage especially with our two families and 3 dogs. Garden was brilliant for the dogs and kids to play in - nice and safe. The area was lovely. A fantastic hideaway for a relaxing week and close enough to the coast for seaside walks and fun.
Miss Sherwin
October 2015
Lovely quiet location and the garden had great space for our 2 dogs to exercise. A good location to visit surrounding attractions/areas.
Mrs Marjoram
September 2015
The property was a good mix of old character and modern facilities, and was very spacious. The bed was very comfortable, and the garden was large and enclosed. There were accessible footpaths nearby for dog walks. The heating was very efficient.
Mrs Andrews
August 2015
Beautiful home with lots of character, loved the big bathroom and the large garden for the children to play and run around safely
Mr Jewell
August 2015
We liked the quaint and spacious house that was full of character, and the large rear garden that had beautiful surroundings of trees and rural countryside. The house was in a good location for many interesting places to visit and good nearby pubs with good food.
Mrs Woodland
July 2015
Good size accommodation in lovely quiet area. Garden was well fenced and perfect for children and dogs.
Mr Lugg
April 2015
It was a lovely experience to stay in such a large period property with wooden beams. The house was very clean. The area was great for providing something for all of our family.
Mr Brown
April 2015
The house was superb, a perfect example of just what our group look for in a holiday let. The two main reception rooms swallowed up our party number of 6. The olde worlde charms were oozing out of every beam and I only hit my head on a low beam twice! I could live here was a frequent comment!
Mr Marsden
February 2015
Lovely cottage, exceptional master bedroom and bathroom with lots of space and all full of character. It was quiet, with easy walks from the cottage which were well signposted and the pub was really friendly towards us and our dogs! Would return again!
Mrs Tomlinson
January 2015
Beautiful warm and cosy cottage - as it was cold outside it was such a treat coming back to a warm house. The garden was a fantastic size for the children. The location was also perfect - we loved the rural surroundings, but also being very accessible to Southwold and other coastal places.
Mr Wreford
November 2014
The location is perfect for a base for dog walking. The size of house, again perfect for pets with a large rear garden.
Mrs Lockwood
October 2014
A luxury place to stay, it was relaxing and quiet, would visit again.
Mrs Newcombe
October 2014
Our holiday began with a warm and welcoming house and got better. Great facilities, lovely tranquil garden and environs too. Some great touches in the house e.g dog towels and well placed torches in every room so that we could find unfamiliar light switches. Very friendly locals, dog friendly pubs, shops and visitor attractions too. Not a lot else to say except that we got double the value for our money. A mixed age group family, old teenage and middle aged plus two dogs - a spanking job!
Mrs Gibbard
June 2014
The house was lovely. Everyone fell in love with the house and its surroundings. Hopefully we will be holidaying there again.
Mr Colwill
