Hi Russ,

Thank you so much for another lovely stay, it certainly didn’t disappoint. Our 5 year old found the lighthouse being so close just as magical as before. It was lovely and clean again, all was perfect. We just love Southwold and sure we will be back.

Many thanks,

Hi Russ, I hope you're well.

Just a note to thank you for letting us stay at Lighthouse-View. What a fabulous house, such a lot of thought has gone into fitting it out, it definitely felt more like a home than a holiday home (if that makes sense!)

Mum and I had a really lovely week - the weather was so-so (wish we were going this week instead as it looks like it's going to be warm and sunny the whole time!) but the cottage was so lovely for just sitting and relaxing in. We both loved it.

Thanks again and best wishes,

Hello Russ,

We had a fabulous stay thank you! The cottage is charming and had everything we could ever need, and it was spotless. The location was perfect too for beach, town, pier. This was our first visit for Southwold and we plan to come back! We will keep your details for our next trip!

Many thanks

Hi Russell

We had a lovely stay in your cottage at the weekend thank you.

We loved the location of the cottage, and found it to be very well equipped as well as warm and cosy. It was also spotlessly clean.

The beds were very comfortable and everything worked.

There were no issues to report, I hope you’ll find that we left the cottage in good order.

We’ll certainly be in touch if we wish to book again and will let our friends and family know about Lighthouse View.

Kind regards

Fran, James and Chessie

Fantastic Cottage!

Such a beautiful cottage with lots of charm.
When we arrived we were able to park right out side, the cottage was very clean and had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay.
You couldn’t ask for a better location, the sea is literally on the doorstep and all amenities a short walk.
The beds are extremely comfy with quality bedding, and we loved the feature bath in the main bedroom.
The owner was great to deal with and very accommodating.
We love this cottage and will definitely be back. Thank you.

Very much enjoyed our stay. Certainly can recommend this cottage. Very clean,. Shows lot's of thought, care and time has gone into the restoration and upkeep of this small house. Everything you need is there: comfortable bed, nice bathroom, shower and bath, kitchen is well equipped. Recommend to buy some fresh fish at Samatha K's along the Southwold harbour and cook it up in this very "cute" kitchen; amazing how much you can pack into a small space. Beach is only 3 min away. In town plenty of places to shop, eat and taste the now extensive variety of Adnams offerings. Does get a bit busy on the weekends and during season but a wonderful get away other times. Excellent walks along the beach and into the marches. And you always find your way home having the lighthouse in the garden. Host is great in responding quickly and answering questions.

Hi Russell

We are fans of your cottage and thoroughly enjoyed our second stay. It was cosy and warm on a miserable January weekend and met all our expectations. We tried to book a week in the summer last year,having first stayed at the cottage in July 2015, but left it too late and had to accept inferior accommodation locally instead. Typically we like to visit Southwold every other year but we enjoyed last weekend so much that we might book a weekend away in the winter again.We would like to book again for summer 2019 and wonder when the booking window would open?

Kind regards

Good morning Russ

We had a delightful stay at your cottage.

Everything from the first contact with you was very professional and nothing was too much trouble. The cottage was just what we were looking for and you had everything covered even down to a last minute present on Christmas Eve that needed wrapping - found some sellotape in the draw!

My favourite evening delight was a soak in the free-standing bath in the bedroom, and I slept so well in your comfy bed. Made me think about putting a bath in our bedroom now.

As I was cooking Christmas dinner I was unsure what to take but everything was there to make use of so I need not have worried. Even used the slow cooker which was a great bonus.

It was extra special to be able to see the lighthouse from the bedroom window - we didn’t close the curtain as we enjoyed seeing a small shadow across the ceiling as the light came round to us but really you can’t notice much at all.

And, I nearly forgot it was spotlessly clean which is very important.

Would love to have stayed longer but hopefully we will return.

Thank you once again.

Best wishes for a happy and healthy 2018.

Dear Russ and Sue,

Thank you for your email.

I had a lovely stay in your cottage, I could not fault it at all.

It was the first holiday on my own after losing my husband last year and it was the perfect place to go with relaxing and peaceful accommodation and surroundings.

I would like to return in 2018, I am just waiting for an operation on my knee, once I know when this is I will then be able to look at dates and get something booked in.

I would highly recommend your beautiful cottage.

Best wishes

Julia and Rowan (the dog)

Hi Russ,

Just a short note to say how much we enjoyed our stay at Lighthouse View. It was everything we could have wished for, a beautiful cottage in a stunning location. Everything was spotlessly clean with all facilities to hand. We had lovely food (and Adnams) in the Sole Bay Inn, lots to see and do in the vicinity. Southwold is a beautiful town with none of the shouting, chanting drunks, and aggressive beggars that you find at many larger seaside resorts. A shame we don't live nearer, we would visit far more often.

Once again, thank you for enabling us to have a memorable holiday and we will definitely be returning in the not too distant future.

Kind regards,
