About the Owner
We love Suffolk! And we want you to come and enjoy it here too.
Our aim is to provide a comfortable and homely place for you to stay whilst you enjoy all that the beautiful and unspoilt Suffolk Heritage Coastal Region has to offer.
Many previous guests have described our self-catering holiday cottages as a real 'home from home' - so we've adopted that as our motto!
Several guests have even asked if they can buy the cottage they were staying in! But, they are not for sale. They are here to enjoy while you holiday in Suffolk.
Why Dawn chose Suffolk
Saxmundham is such a great location - it's an ideal holiday base. With such good transport links, within a half an hours drive (or less) you can get to all the popular places to visit.
There are good local bus services too. And the train station (Lowestoft to London-Liverpool St Line) is a few minutes walk away. (But don't worry - there is no train noise at the cottages!)
We love the peace and quiet. The friendliness of the people. The wide open spaces. The unspoilt nature of the countryside, coast and heathland... and the local, seasonal food.
What makes this cottage unique
The cottages are just 5 mins walk from the town's High Street, so very convenient for an evening meal out... or just to pick up a newspaper in the morning.
The supermarkets are open 7 days a week, until late in the evening. And, there are lots of independent little shops to browse around too.

A cosy little cottage. Fully modernised, clean and very well equipped with good storage. Handy location for shops, restaurants, train station, beaches and local attractions. Dawn was most helpful without intruding on our privacy.
Really enjoyed our stay at the Corner Cottage. Excellent accommodation and made to feel very welcome by the added touches. Great base for exploring the beautiful surrounding area and minutes walk to the train station. Saxmundham is a lovely town and will definitely be back. Will be recommending to friends and family.
Tired and delayed by the joys of the Dartford tunnel, Corner cottage was an oasis of calm serenity. The comfortable beds and cosy kitchen provided a place to feed, water and rest two tired boys and Molly our dog snuggled up in the doggie blankets and gratefully nibbled on the doggie treats provided. We enjoyed our holiday in Suffolk very much, and Corner cottage provided a wonderful base to explore castles, saxon burial grounds and beaches. We would definitely recommend it to our friends.
