Our first time but by no means the last since we have already booked for next year. The property was as described and was beautifully clean. We liked the layout with the kitchen cum lounge on the 1st floor with a view over woodland to the sea. Although it seems quite a way from the Coast it is only a matter of yards to the Suffolk Coast Path. The Agents were extremely helpful and arranged for an extra table & more chairs without charge so we could entertain relatives in the area. Lovely walks in all directions straight from the door it is easy to see why this is an AONB.

Very clean and modern property in a great location – just two minutes from the beach and around a 20-30 minute walk to the picturesque village of Thorpeness. The house is very secluded – the only sounds we heard were the birds in the woods and the crashing of waves on the shore.
Craig – April 2022
We had a fantastic stay at Dower Retreat. The location was brilliant and the accommodation was comfortable, clean, well decorated and cosy. Perfect!

Lovely setting and great property.
Susan – December 2021
A lovely secluded retreat close to the sea. Finished to a high specification. Lovely and warm and instant hot water. We did a circular walk to Aldeburgh and back. Highly recommend the Kitchen cafe in Thorpeness, fantastic food.
Sara – November 2021
Really enjoyed our stay. We walked along the coastal path to the Saturday morning parkrun (less than a mile) and to RSPB Minsmere (about 2 miles). We saw deer and other wildlife from the window. A great space that had everything we needed.
Chris Jones – November 2021
Absolutely lovely place to stay. The accommodation is excellent tastefully furnished to a high standard. Great location for the beach, cycling or walking. Would definitely recommend a stay here.
Christine – September 2021
This is a spacious and light, newly renovated annex to the main house. It is perfectly located 5 minutes from the shingle beach, very quiet and great for walking, cycling, birdwatching etc. You can walk along the beach to Sizewell for breakfast and walk all day from there! We loved it!
Sally – August 2021
Lovely, well done-up cottage with great access to the beach. Great spot for rural walks.

‘Beautiful place to stay’ My partner and I stayed in The Dower Retreat for 4 nights and wish it could have been longer. The accommodation is spotless and tastefully furnished to a high standard. Loved the decor. Highly recommend this one bedroom apartment to stay in. I am sure we will go back again and explore further the lovely part of the Suffolk coastline.

Just wanted to write to you to Thankyou for such a wonderful stay in The Dower Retreat. It was absolutely beautiful inside and out and equally as spotless. We very much enjoyed our stay and hope to come back early next year for a post Christmas break. The beach being only 50 yards away was our favourite part and we spent a lot of time there. Already have recommended it to friends and family who are keen to book a break with yourselves also.
Beth Avril – September 2020
We had a lovely stay in a great location…right next to the beach. We didn’t want to leave!
