    Loved my Xmas at shrimp cottage, so did my doggies. The cottage was warm and cosy and felt very homely, everything you could want. So well equipped! The beach was fabulous and so close ,a few yards from the cottage, the little shop near by just had all the basic provisions, even dog food. Will definitely like to have another holiday in Kessingland and would recommend staying at shrimp cottage. Thank you to Richard and Penny. Paula , Millie and Freddie

    We had a great break there helped by good weather for the time of year. The owners were very friendly and helpful and the cottage was just what we wanted, cosy, clean and comfortable. The beach is just a short walk away and great for walking the dog. We would definately go again.

    Shrimp cottage is a lovely quirky place to stay, very cosy and clean. The owners are very nice friendly people. The location is excellent with good walks nearby. A restaurant and pub are close too. There is an extra charge for heating payable from the beginning of October which should be metered as you pay whether or not you use it. We had a lovely time at Shrimp Cottage and would recommend it.

    A great cottage to stay in. So close to the sea yet very peaceful and quiet.

    My stay at Shrimp Cottage was everything I hoped it would be and more. The setting was lovely the hosts were very nice, kind people. The beds were very comfortable, the cottage extremely clean. The kitchen had everything you could wish for and the small garden space allocated to the cottage was a sun trap with dappled shade. I loved it, a big thank you to Penny & Richard and not to forget Buck xx

    Lovely cottage, clean, bright and well equipped. The beach is only a short stroll away as is a small park and tea room that serve a nice cream tea.

    The cottage was not close to the sea as stated by cottages .com, it is 300m walk along the road and another 300m walk across the heathland to reach the sea. Our holiday was spoiled by the lack of comfortable seating in the cottage, both sofas are long past their sell by date. After a day sightseeing one needs to be able to relax. The location of the cottage relative to local towns in the area is good.

    Penny & Richard are great hosts nothing too much trouble delightful and exceptionally clean cottage garden is great sun trap. Sailors Home is local pub very welcoming good choice of food and beer advisable to book if eating. Waterfront restaurant at side of pub is not to be mist booking again is advisable as only small inside. Southwold is worth a visit for quaint shops pier and walk along the promenade. Great Yarmouth is a good visit if children with you good beach and plenty of amusements. All within easy drive.

    We very much enjoyed our time at Shrimp cottage, despite the English weather throwing snow and hail at us!! It is a very nice cottage and well equipped, though a couple more towels wouldn't have gone a miss. Great location and I am sure it is a lovely sun trap.....when summer arrives, which unfortunately didn't for us on this occasion.
