Couple from Benfleet, United Kingdom Oct 2016

Excellent location with 11 acres of gardens (and field leading to the river Alde) to explore with our three dogs.
The cottage was warm and comfortable, especially with the log burner.
The only problem we had was that one of the dogs had to go out in the middle of the night and it would have been nice to have direct access to the enclosed garden from the cottage.
It was the best cottage holiday we have had so far and the owners and their dog were lovely.

Couple from Chatteris, United Kingdom Sep 2016

Second time we have stayed at Beaver cottage. Since last year the kitchen has been extended and a new bathroom added. There is also now a log burner not that we used it as we had a nice warm week. The improvements have made it a very nice place to stay.Our 2 dogs loved all the space to run about in. Tony and Debbie are both friendly. We were made to feel welcome.

Family from Abingdon, United Kingdom Jul 2016

We had a wonderful stay at Beaver Cottage during the week of the July heatwave. The place to be was in the kayaks on the River Alde. We even spotted a seal! The cottage was very comfortable. We especially enjoyed the spectacular grounds (our dog always had her nose to the ground--an abundance of wildlife), the barbecue, and the newly fitted kitchen (and bathroom). There are lovely walks from the doorstep and lots of activities nearby. I'm sure we'll return.

Family from Appleton Roebuck York, United Kingdom Jul 2016

We had a great time and would like to return. A lovely and interesting area with loads to see. Excellent hosts who gave us access to their beautiful property. Lovely to be in the real countryside but close to restaurants and shops.
We would be very happy to return and hopefully will do so one day.

Family from Leven, Fife, United Kingdom May 2016

Check-in good - Someone waiting to show us around.
Weather was brilliant which always makes a place better anyway.
Cottage had everything we needed. Nice quiet area. New bathroom and kitchen excellent.
Access to the owners garden and beach a definite plus.
If you are in to wildlife this is a good central location. Plenty of birds and rabbits in the garden. Barn owl also in grounds - heard a muntjac barking.
Minsmere 15 minutes drive. Snape Warren and North Warren just 5 minutes away. Dunwich Heath also well worth a visit.

Family from Nr Manningtree, United Kingdom Aug 2015

Beautiful setting, wonderful walks and sights. Cottage all ready for us, very sweet place, lovely sunny homely rooms. Kitchen and bathroom due for expansion/improvement which is needed. We were made most welcome by the owners. Thw beach was stunning and we made good use of the kayaks.

We were sad to leave. Would def recommend.

On arrival we were made to feel most welcome, the cottage was cosy and the gardens beautiful. The children were asked if they would like to feed the chickens in the morning an experience they had never had before. We have already recommended this experience to friends and will definatly be back. If you are looking for a place to relax and unwind this is definatly the place for you.

Can we book again for next year please? This is our 4th visit and again we had a wonderful time. Thank you for letting us borrow your kayak. Mr and Mrs C. CambridgeWe first came to Beaver Cottage in 2005 and this is our third visit. We love it here and hope to be back in 2008. Mr and Mrs S Biggleswade.
