Description

This property is ideally situated in the unspoilt fishing hamlet of Felixstowe Ferry, only 50 yards from the shingle beach.

Mariners Lodge is a cosy, spacious, detached holiday cottage boasting sea views from the first floor living room and overlooking the 18-hole links golf course, with an adjacent 9-hole public course. Ideally situated in the quiet unspoilt fishing hamlet of Felixstowe Ferry, only 50 yards from the shingle beach and 400 yards from popular country pub serving good food. The village itself boasts an art gallery, cafe, sailing club, fishing from the beach and all are within walking distance. Situated on the Suffolk Heritage Coast, the cottage is well placed for touring Suffolk including the picturesque towns of Woodbridge, Aldeburgh, Southwold, Dunwich, Walberswick, Orford and Harwich. Only half an hours drive from Snape, famous for its all year round concerts. Further inland are Framlingham, a quaint old town with a cobbled market square, tea shops, good eating houses and a castle. For the children, a day out and a picnic at Easton Farm Park, is a must. Set in a lovely original farm setting with antique machinery, farm animals, arts and crafts, childrens play area, a restaurant and a picnic area set alongside a river. Slightly further afield are the famous small towns of Long Melford, a haven for antique hunters, and famous for Kentwell and Long Melford Halls. The medieval old wood town of Lavenham is also worth a visit as is Constable Country and the Dedham Vale. Numerous other picturesque villages to visit, all within an hours drive or just relax on the local Blue Flag beach. Felixstowe, 2 miles, for shopping facilities. Pub 400 yards.

    The best cottage holiday we've had in the UK! Perfect location any time of the year (if you don't mind a bit of wind). Loads of space, kitchen really well equipped. Loved the layout of the cottage, especially the upstairs lounge and bedroom with lovely views. Really lovely unspoilt spot. Will definitely visit again.

    Superb spot in a quaint unspoilt location. Enjoyed a week with lots of long walks. Wi-fi would be much appreciated. Would love to return to this location. Amazing sunrises and sun sets both can be observed from the property.

    Wonderful location between golf course and sea. Nice house (particularly the double aspect lounge and roomy master bedroom). Only the dining room was a little dated and dark. Loved the west facing balcony which was sheltered from the wind and had gorgeous sunset views. Very clean. Already booked our next visit.

    We have returned to this property a number of times because we love the location. However, we do think the property needs new mattresses - the double beds in particular are soft and sagging which lead to a few uncomfortable nights unfortunately. No WiFi - mixed opinions amongst the party about whether this is a good thing or not! Love the views and the proximity to the beach - overall an enjoyable week.

    We love Felixstowe Ferry and have stayed at Mariners Lodge many times. It would be nice to see it updated a bit now. Beds and sofas aren’t great and the bathrooms really need some work. Nothing stops us from coming back but a few improvements could be made. Can’t fault the cleanliness or presentation of what is there though.

    Damp and stunk of mold ground floor.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; I take any adverse comments on the property seriously as I want all Guests to be satisfied and enjoy their stay at Mariners Lodge. In 12 years of welcoming Guests, no comments of this nature have been made before. I have spoken to the Caretaker of the property who advises that as there was a blank week previously, they took the opportunity to repaint damaged areas of the decorations of the ground floor rooms. A lot of making good was carried out in the kitchen and dining room following which the property was closed. It seems almost certain this was the cause of the smell. We always ask Guests to contact us if they have issues but we heard nothing. It was such a pity the Caretaker was not informed of the grievance when the Guests left, as the matter could have been immediately resolved.

    Very good as ever - this was our third visit. Wonderful views from the balcony over the golf course. Well-equipped house which would be even better if it had broadband.

    We've stayed many times and love it here! Well equipped cottage, not over fussy, glorious location. Maybe just update the upstairs shower...? But it's not a deal breaker for us. Already booked our next trip.

    Lovely holiday home with fantastic views in a quiet unspoilt location. Large property with good kitchen facilities and spacious upstairs lounge and bedroom. Nice pub with good food at the end of the road and a couple of cafes also within waking distance.
