The Dower Cottage is the perfect getaway – perfect location just 3-4 minutes to the beach, easy walk to Aldeburgh or out towards the north to endless beaches. We even spotted a seal sun lounging on the beach in the morning after our swim. The cottage is big, clean, 2 beautiful en-suite bedrooms, double-living room and a huge garden, with lounge chairs and table and chairs right in front of the kitchen. We saw lots of birds, a pheasant and a family of deer in the garden. We also the quietest nights ever and fantastically fresh sea air. We were called the morning of our arrival to say the cottage is already set for us, so no need to wait till the checkin time. I’m sure this doesn’t always happen but it was a great welcome already. Cannot fault this place at all, nor the communication, we will be back!

The accommodation was first class. The property has been recently refurbished to a very high standard, with no expense spared. It is set in beautiful grounds close to the beach in a remote location. Ideal for those who like a nice peaceful holiday.
Ken, St. Albans – October 2020
Cottage is very spacious and comfortable, and location is brilliant, minutes from the beach, and plenty of great walks and good food in the area. Loved the cottage and the location, and thank you for being so responsive to the issues we raised while we were there. Hope to come back again.

Beautiful location and really lovely accommodation, perfect for anyone wanting a bit of an escape. Perfect also for small family’s and a great secure garden for kids to run around safely. The cottage it’s self has everything you would need, comfy beds, big bathrooms a cosy sitting room for evenings and a open plan kitchen dinning area for the day. Great location to the sea as just a couple of minutes walk. We didn’t want to leave!

Vladimir Eatwell – August 2020
Lovely cottage with plenty of space. Garden is huge. Location is superb – beach 2 mins walk and lovely forest and countryside behind. Communication from Aldeburgh Coastal Cottages was also excellent
Patrick Ball – August 2020
Home from home!. Set in woodland and a 2 minute stroll along a leafy path to the beach, The Dower Cottage was perfect for a really comfortable and enjoyable stay. It was well equipped, modern, spacious, light and the the beds were great. We had our own private walled garden with a large patio and our own ‘meadow’! The location made an excellent starting point for a walk along the beach to Aldeburgh, stopping at pretty Thorpeness for coffee. Twice during our week we ate delicious pizza, cooked in a wood burning oven in the neighbouring campsite’s restaurant overlooking the sea – delicious! We would love to stay in The Dower Cottage again and highly recommend it to others. A huge thank you to Angela of Aldeburgh Coastal Cottages for helping to make our stay so wonderful.
Jenina K,San Jose, Costa Rica – August 2020
Great house in a great location, just one minute walk to the beach but also with very generous and private garden space. Great walking and cycling around the area and lots to see and do.
Lucas Lawrence – August 2020
The accommodation was ideal for four adults with very comfortable beds and ensuite facilities. We ate our meals in the cottage which was spacious with a great outdoor space. The location was also spot on with the beach a few minutes walk away and great coastal walks. We walked into Thorpeness and Aldeburgh which were both worth a visit. We booked the cottage as a last minute break following Covid 19 lockdown and it was the perfect place to go in the circumstances. We only stayed for three nights but we all wished it could have been longer. Would certainly come back and recommend to others, and having the option of the other accommodation on site would mean we would consider coming back with a larger party.
Cosmopolitan – July 2020
Perfect place for a relaxed time away. Two mins to get to the beach, comfy beds, wonderful outdoor space and a well equipped kitchen. The house is tucked away and you don’t see or hear anyone else while you’re there, bliss!
