Fantastic Family Holiday - Beautiful Place to Stay
We had the pleasure of staying at No 7 Iken View in August. The property itself is absolutely beautiful, it is furnished to a very high standard and has everything you could ever need (beautiful fluffy towels, super soft bedding, washer/dryer, travel cot, pots, pans and cooking utensils etc). The Maltings shops and eateries are fabulous, we would recommend the food at the Plough and Sail. All the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. We had a fantastic family holiday and look forward to returning one day soon ! We would not hesitate in recommending no7 Iken View.
LATE SUMMER STAY
We are returning visitors to this property, having just spent our second long weekend there. The location makes for a very peaceful and relaxing break; nothing nicer than sitting looking out at the view from the balcony, or through the huge glass folding doors from a comfy chair in the large open plan kitchen/diner/lounge, or while eating breakfast in the morning sun, or at supper watching the light changing over the water as the sun sets. The walks around the area are lovely (and nice and easy!), with good birdlife and a mix of terrain, from water and marshland, to forests, farms and fields. The property is roomy, tastefully furnished, and has all you might need for a comfortable stay - fantastic value for money.
We were fortunate enough to spend a long weekend in this property late last year and everything about both the property itself and the location were fabulous. Inside the property, the accommodation is laid out over 3 floors with the living and dining and kitchen at the top to take optimum advantage of the amazing views. Everything you could possibly need is provided, from luxury bedding to soft fluffy towels and as we enjoy cooking, we were very pleased to find an amazing array of utensils etc. A stay here is guaranteed to recharge even the most worn out of batteries and having the Maltings with its shops and eateries right on the doorstep means there is no need to venture far unless the lure of Southwold and Aldeburgh tempt you away for a few hours, as they did us. A walkers paradise and wonderful local scenery just complete the picture and we will definitely be returning to this soporific location in the near future. I would thoroughly recommend this property to anyone who is looking for an extremely high standard of accommodation, combined with peace and tranquility. It really does tick all the boxes for a long weekend or indeed a full holiday experience.
