Couldn't have been a better way to celebrate sisters 50th, all cottages warm, clean, and well equiped. Party barn was great size with plenty of equipment to self cater. Children loved play area (also some of adults) bit cold for pool was available. Plenty of places of interest close by Southwold being a must go place. A memorable weekend had by all

Our family took the whole property, including the party barn, to celebrate our Mum's 80th birthday. It was perfect for our needs. Clean, very well equipped with everything we needed. Central heating and plenty of hot water - both of which were a must at Easter. We had all our evening meals together in the party barn which was plenty big enough for the 23 of us. The children enjoyed playing on the trampoline outside.

Claire provided information about caterers to provide the birthday meal, as well as plenty of other information to help us have a good time.

We would certainly recommend this venue for small and large groups. For adults and for children.

Thank you Claire.

Family Holiday

  • 4 of 5

For us this was a very successful holiday. The Cottage was very well mantained and had all the facilities we required. It was very light and airy and had a crisp, clean feel to it. For our two small grandchildren it was heaven. A play area on the doorstep, a heated swimming pool to splash about in and a pond with hundreds of hungry fish to feed. Walberswick and other great beaches are only 15/20 minutes away and Saxmundham with its two good supermarkets is a 5 minute drive.

I would definitely recommend East Green Farm Cottages.
