    Nice walks in Dunwich woods - very tranquil. Nice meal at Westleton Crown Inn.

    A lovely cottage surrounded by countryside. We had pheasants walking past the front door. Sitting in the garden we sat in perfect quiet watching deer walking across the nearby field. There were lots to to see not far away and plenty of excellent places to eat. Overall it was a lovely holiday made special by the accommodation.

    We had a great short break. Games room and garden were great for our boys (8&9). Lots of places to visit nearby. Peaceful and quiet, really enjoyed the fire in the evenings.

    Lovely holiday cottage in beautiful countryside. Shop very near by, great local walks and very close to Dunwich and Southwold.

    Did not enjoy the cottage nothing cosy about it and hardly any work surface in the kitchen, bedrooms very basic with cheap horrible furniture. Bathrooms were good but the whole place was very tired and shabby not good value for the money. Also expected you to pay extra for heating. The wood shed was a big disappointment.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner. I am so sorry that you didn't enjoy your stay in the Woodshed. I was a bit stunned when I saw the rating that you had given us, when we have had so many happy guests, many of whom return to us year after year, and sometimes several times a year. I think that the website presents the cottage honestly, although, sadly, it didn't meet your expectations. All of the furniture can be seen in the photographs, much of it Victorian country pine, and my wife and I think it suits the character of the property. The hanging cupboard in the bedroom was added only recently (it wasn't cheap!), to replace one which we did feel was a bit tired, so I'm sorry that you don't like it. Our other cottage, the Cartshed, was re-roofed and had it's kitchen, bathroom and water system renewed about three years ago, and the Woodshed had its' bathroom and shower room, along with the heating and hot water system, completely refurbished more recently. The kitchen is next to be done, when we hope to extend the work-surface.We intend also to renew the bedroom carpets this Spring. We do continue to replace and repair as we think appropriate and necessary, while trying to keep our prices reasonable. We are in a great location for the coast, Southwold, Walberswick, Aldeburgh, R.S.P.B. Minsmere, Dunwich Forest, and much more; we are very rural, and the cottage reflects that. It suits many people, but obviously not all, and I'm just very sorry that it was not to your taste.
