Guestbook comments from the owner

“We had a great week at Rosemary Cottage. Clean, tidy, and beautifully situated to enjoy what we think is the very best of Suffolk – Southwold, Walberswick, and all the lovely villages round about. The woodburner is a crowd-pleaser and the cottage itself is cosy but spacious. The owners were friendly, attentive and easy to deal with. Highly recommended.” Simon Feeney

Character cottage in great location

  • 4 of 5

The cottage has charm and appeal due to it's age. The kids loved the narrow staircase up to the attic room (their den!). Clean and homely but is in need of some work and repairs. This is reflected in the price really. Great that we could take our dog.

We needed to use the camp bed for our teenage son but it was not very suitable. Padded out it was bearable for a few nights.

Situated in a lovely village with easy access to the coast. Walking distance to the pub which served good food.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We have since spoken and the minor repair work which you mentioned has been undertaken. The camp bed has also been replaced. We agree that our cottage is in a great location, close to the sea and our kids love playing in the upstairs bedroom too!
