Fantastic accommodation, spotlessly clean. Great location for secluded, peaceful break, minutes walk from the beach. Great host! Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Great weekend at a lovely house by the Suffolk coast.

The Dower House is a truly beautiful place situated in a great location for exploring the Suffolk and Norfolk counties. The property is large and airy with a balcony overlooking the sea. A great viewing location for watching the sun rise and set with a glass of wine. Being away from the main road and at the end of a country lane, it is in an extremely quiet and peaceful setting. We had a fantastic family staycation, spending days on the beach (which is only 100m away and accessed via a gate in the back garden). Note: accessing the beach is via some quite steep steps taking you down a sandy bank. The coastal path (that runs past the house) allows for easy exploration if you’re up for some walks, the route to Aldeburgh via Thorpeness and back is around 16-17kms. We managed this after topping up with Fish and Chips and Ice Cream for Harris and James at the half way point! All in all a great break had by all, we’ll be sure to return again at some point soon…

The house has made for an excellent week. Great location, excellent decor and style. Brilliant for our three families – plenty of space. Very interesting Ogilvie history.
And I’m very impressed with your company. You were extraordinarily helpful over booking(including a change in dates), you were excellent in the way you phoned us en route as soon as the house was ready. Top quality customer care.

Fabulous cliff top location with stunning views from Dower House. Impeccably clean and comfortable.
Rebecca Fuller – October 2020
We had a wonderful stay in the beautiful Dower House. Far surpassed our expectations with brilliant communication from the start. Impeccably clean and the rooms are stunning. The views were fantastic from the top bedrooms and the short walk to the beach was really perfect for our family holiday. Thank you!
Katie Bailey – August 2020
This is a fantastic property in a superb location. We loved how spacious and comfortable the house is and the location on a remote clifftop just a short walk to the shingle beach. Well situated for day trips to Aldeburgh, Southwold, Snape Maltings etc. Would definitely recommend.

Dear Elizabeth, We’ve just returned from a very wonderful week at the Dower House and I would like to thank you for your excellent service. Throughout the enquiry and booking process I found your agency so helpful and friendly, particularly during the early, uncertain COVID days. The Dower House was a complete delight and accommodated our two young families so very comfortably. Your maintenance person was extremely helpful- responding quickly to our request for child locks for the upper windows. You really made our holiday. Thank you so much.
Libby Fry – August 2020
Good morning Elizabeth. I just thought I’d drop you a line to say a huge thank you for upgrading us to the Dower House. What a stunning property. We are beside ourselves and loving every minute. Just off to your locally . Have a lovely day.
Mrs Pat Curran, Solihull – July 2020
This is an exceptional property in an outstanding location. On the cliffs above the beach with views out to sea especially from the upper floors of the house. It is set down a secluded track, so feels very private and peaceful. It is part of a larger property (I assume what was the original Dower House) that has been divided into about four properties all holiday lets. The Dower House where we stayed has the best views facing over the sea, completely private entrance and we hardly noticed anyone else. The house has obviously been newly renovated, so feels very clean and new, all new appliances etc. All four bedrooms are reasonably spacious and have en-suite bathrooms plus two extra toilets, there is a lounge and tv room and well-sized, well-equipped kitchen. We had a wonderful week and would definitely rent this house again.
Cathy Butcher – July 2020
Amazing house with the backyard next to an amazing beach. The house is huge, new and very clean. I went there for a business trip but I would recommend it for long rental vacations as well.
