“Perfect holiday in a beautiful cottage.... excellent facilities and wonderful location.”
Left on 09/29/2011 for a stay in July 2011 | emma lReviewed Sep 29, 2011Stayed Jul 2011
Coxwains cottage was a perfect base to explore the suffolk coast being tucked away on a quiet road, just a couple of minutes walk to the beach and boating lake. The cottage has everything you could possibly need for a comfortable relaxing holiday. We especially enjoyed being able to sit outside in the charming covered patio area soaking up the summer sun. We hope to return very soon.
“Snug modernised cottage in the centre of the village by the sea”
Left on 09/28/2011 for a stay in September 2011 | Bernard GReviewed Sep 28, 2011Stayed Sep 2011
Coxswains Cottage is in a lovely spot in the centre of Thorpeness within walking distance of the sea, meare & pub etc.
The owners are obliging and maintain the cottage to a high standard. There is everything there to make a stay comfortable and easy to manage; like proper cutlery and a range of glasses quality linen etc.
The layout with 2 double bedrooms each with a full size on-suite and own staircase works particularly well and although the garden is small it’s very pleasant to sit there in the early evening in the sunshine watching the world go by.
Parking is a problem, especially at the weekend, but that is the same in all desirable parts of this unusual and fascinating village.
It is walking distance from the golf club and a very pleasant walk along the see shore brings you to Aldeburgh.
We have stayed there 3 times and are about to book again for next year!!
“Gorgeous cottage, beautifully presented and perfectly located”
Left on 09/22/2011 for a stay in July 2011 | MMONReviewed Sep 22, 2011Stayed Jul 2011
Absolutely lovely little cottage, with all you need, beautifully presented, stylish, spotless and welcoming. Fabulous location, just over the road from the beach and right next to the Mere, great walks, a nice stroll along the beach into Aldeburgh - a really lovely place to relax and unwind. Highly recommended!
“cosy well-equipped cottage a stone's throw from the sea”
Left on 09/20/2011 for a stay in March 2010 | TetleyCReviewed Sep 20, 2011Stayed Mar 2010
Comfortable cottage, with well-equipped kitchen, plenty of books and home comforts. Loved the two bedrooms/bathrooms with their own separate staircases - very useful for two couples or two individuals. Plenty of room in the dining-kitchen, although living room was tiny - but very cosy! Bed linen was good quality and everything was spotless.
Thorpeness is a fascinating place but well-placed to explore the Suffolk coast, especially Aldeburgh which is a couple of miles away along a beachside path. Orford Ness and Southwold are also worth a visit.
Since this guest visited the rear courtyard has been improved with the addition of glazed roof, new granite paving and new furniture - the front garden is still small but will soon have improved screening to improve privacy.

“A very British seaside holiday”
Left on 09/20/2011 for a stay in April 2011 | Jill186225Reviewed Sep 20, 2011Stayed Apr 2011
This is a small but very well appointed holiday cottage. Steep stairs which my elderly mother had trouble with (no handrails?), but worth the climb to excellent, comfy beds and spacious bathrooms. Kitchen has all the equipment you could need for a gourmet dinner.
We ordered newspapers from the local shop and collected croissants for breakfast.
NO internet or satellite TV, but hey you're on holiday!
SIt in the sunny front garden or walk a few paces to the beach.
Thorpeness must be unique as a place - fascinating to wander around. Walk to Aldeburgh or cycle around
