What can I say about Waveney Cottage other than it's absolutely stunning! The thatched cottage is set in a peaceful location with a huge garden and wonderful views across the countryside, just a short drive to the pretty town of Harleston. The house and gardens are beautiful and the attention to detail within the property is stunning.
We were greeted on arrival by the warmth of the Aga. Wine and chocolates were left for us along with a fresh pint of milk in the fridge, tea, coffee, biscuits, a selection of coffee pods for the coffee machine and fresh bottled water in both bedrooms. The towels and bedding were of excellent quality and the main bedroom was huge and included a luxurious roll top bath.
Out holiday was active as there's lots to do in the area. We visited Beccles and kayaked up the Broads, the weather was kind to us so we also traveled to the beaches surrounding Southwold - well worth a visit. It was lovely to come back to the cottage of an evening and sit in the hot tub with a glass of wine.
Waveney Cottage is beautiful and the pictures do not do the property justice. It's the most memorable holiday cottage we've ever stayed in and we'll definitely return.
This beautifull cottage is the ideal place to come and relax. Situated just a short drive to the town of harleston. The cottage is stunning both inside & out full of character. On arrival the owners had left a bottle of wine & box of chocolates which is a lovely touch , the hot tub was lovely perfect with a glass of wine looking onto the large garden .There are many places to visit for days out either having a day at the beach or watching the boats pass you by on the broads .
We pulled and that the pictures didn't do it justice. The garden was massive. We spent alot of time out their it was peaceful. Had a few cars go past and that was it. In the night you could hear a pin drop it was that quite. The house was well looked after. The house was done up to a high standard. They texted before we got there welcoming up. They had wine and chocolates on the table. They had two big dogs beds and a bowl for the dogs. They had water by the beds.
They take alot of time in getting the house ready. It was spotless.
It was truly beautiful. The garden was massive. We spent alot of time in the garden. Which is very well looked after and kept up to high standards the hot tub was definitely a bonus. The bedrooms were both a lovely size. They were set up so nicely. The main bedroom was massive which a bed of dreams it was so big. We loved watching movies in there. The free standing bath in the room was such a lovely way to send your day.
We really didn't want to come home.
Definitely would come back in a heartbeat. Definitely got the holiday blues.
