There’s always that moment with a holiday let when you prepare yourself for disappointment, but The Dower Lodge did not disappoint! It was spacious, bright, clean, warm and very comfortable – perfect for our family of 5 adults and a baby. The Lodge is in a great position with lovely grounds and easy access to the coastal path. The bedrooms all have views across the grounds and to the sea which was lovely to wake up to. The Lodge is perfectly situated for exploring some of well-known towns and villages in the area. This was our first visit to the Suffolk coast and we loved it. Staying at the Lodge certainly added to us having a great break and a most enjoyable time.
Audrey – November 2021
Lovely house, faithfully restored, spacious and very comfortable. Amazing sea views from top two floors. Coastal walk at the end of the long garden. Beach was empty and weather was amazing. Very quiet and peaceful location but not easy to find. Highly recommended.
Nigel – October 2021
Very clean and convenient place. Really enjoyed it.
Idil – September 2021
Great location along with seclusion. Lots of wildlife and easy walking from the door.

We wanted to get away from it all and this cottage was perfect for that. The coastal path is at the end of the garden and we could happily walk to two of the villages (pubs!). We also walked into Aldeburgh although it took just over an hour, which is a lovely seaside town. We can recommend to gin distillery tour. The house itself is set out on three floors that meant we could be self contained on one floor and my in-laws on the other floor. The house benefitted from being done up in a sympathetic way, as it was spacious and airy. It was clean, comfortable and quiet. Although we like walking, I think you would need a car for shopping etc and exploring the local area.
Alison – June 2021
This was a wonderful house and a perfect getaway. The house was spotless and we spent many wonderful hours relaxing and walking by the sea. We will definitely try to book again in the future!
Margaret Westbury – October 2020
We enjoyed a wonderful holiday here, the sea view and accommodation were a delight. Excellent for walking just off the coastal path.
Christine – September 2020
‘Pure luxury’ We were bowled over by the setting of the property. And the inside was luxurious and perfect. The rooms were large and very well decorated, everywhere looked freshly painted. Kitchen was better stocked in utensils than my own! Garden was vast. You can hear the sea! Beautiful furnishings. We will come again soon
NJS – September 2020
We had a very short stay at The Dower Lodge but would definitely recommend. It is super clean and enjoys a fantastic view over the sea.
Laureline Ruiz-Zeghal – September 2020
Dower Lodge is set in wonderful grounds, alongside 3 other holiday rental properties. Even though there are other properties on the site, there was very little noise and we felt very secluded. The garden is huge, and it’s a short walk to the beach. Communication was proactive and helpful.
Liz Black – August 2020
Large clean house in an amazing location right next to a quiet beach. Communication was really good!
