Easy distance from Wimpole Hall National Trust and Cambridge. Local take away leaflets available and delivered for free. Plenty of hot water, heating flexible to meet our preference. Exactly what we needed. Many thanks.

Great location with amazing views over the marshes but just a short walk to Southwold town centre. The house is very clean and well kitted out with everything you could wish for and I hope we get an opportunity for a return visit soon.
