    We had a lovely family week, the place had everything we needed, comfortable & homely and the owner was lovely too. Situated in a quiet peaceful area whilst still easy to drive to it was just what we needed. Will definitely return.

    Beautiful little cottage for 4, clean and well equipped. Amazing large hot tub for private use so perfect for relaxing, and large shared pool which was empty each time we used it. We picked apples and pears from the orchard and baked which was fun. We had no complaints at all, maybe in the future the internet will be available as it made it hard to search for local attractions etc... without. We would definitely return to the cottage value for money was amazing.

    It's a beautiful place and the hot tub is amazing! It's peaceful and quiet, nestled in the farm so was lovely to hear only the birds when outside with your morning coffee. There were no other guests in the other cottages so we had the place to ourselves which was great! The owner seems a really lovely chap too. There is also a swimming pool on site which is clean and the hot tub guy came to clean the tub when we arrived so it's all well looked after. The cottage has all you need, including cooking equipment and toilet/kitchen roll and handwash so you only need to take the food items you need. Southwold and Beccles are only 15 minutes away by car and Beccles has some lovely restaurants if you want a meal out, taxi approximately £20 each way if you don't want to drive (the drawer of the TV table in the cottage has taxi cards in it too for the number!). We took a picnic hamper to take to the beach but the plastic cups were perfect for the hot tub so a heads up if you like a glass of bubbly in the bubbles to take plastic cups. Can't wait to go again!

    Great! There were a few spiders and cobwebs when we arrived and some clothes labels in a bedroom bin (like someone had just bought some new clothes, cut the cardboard labels off and put them in there, but hey, that's very trivial really. The kitchen was well-equipped (but a veg peeler would be useful) and the hot-tub was absolutely divine! although the willow screening beside it could do with repair so that it goes back to the height it obviously once was, especially as it's SO close to the neighbours. If you want TV working all the time on all channels and wifi, then this isn't the place for you (sometimes there's no TV signal at all and there's no wifi and hardly any phone reception), but if you want to switch off from all that hectic stuff, relax in the hot tub, see barn owls, woodpeckers,red-legged partridges, wonderful hares and blue-tits nesting in the eaves of the lodge, then you really must go to Lord Derby (which is named after a type of apple as the lodges were built on an old orchard). Beccles is only 10 minutes away and has everything, including a large Tesco, a fairly big Co-Op, Boots, Superdrug etc and pubs & restaurants galore. It's a really fab part of Suffolk with Minsmere (the RSPB's main reserve) only 20 mins away, plus the lovely, quaint seaside resort of Southwold. We would definitely go back for 2 weeks next time as 1 week just wasn't enough time to do and see everything(we didn't even get around to seeing the swimming pool), although we did manage a day at Minsmere (plus 2 early mornings there from 0600 especially to see the bitterns, cuckoos etc before it gets busy), a day at The Suffolk County Show, a great boat trip with lunch on The Lady Florence from Orford Quay, and lots of wallowing in the wonderful hot tub (my daughter even 'hot-tubbed' in the rain on the morning we left as she loved it so much!). Nic was a great host and provided a lovely bottle of wine for us on our arrival which was very welcome. The beds are comfortable and both bedrooms are en-suite which is great when 4 people are sharing the lodge, the 2 sofas are very squidgy but that just forces you to relax even more as it's such an effort to get off them! All in all a really fab place.

    We spent a sunny bank holiday at the lord derby, for our first wedding anniversary. Nic was really pleasant and helpful, and left us a bottle of prosecco as a anniversary gift. The cottage had just been repainted and was going through some renovations, but it was still a lovely little piece of heaven. The swimming pool was great fun, and the hot tub was a great way to make sure all our days ended on a high! Loads of lovely walks around the area for our dog and we could let our kids (6,3) play outside without worried about them. If you are after a little peace and quiet, with beautiful beaches (Southwold and Walberswick) then we would recommend staying at the cottages. Thank you Nic and Ruth for our peaceful and refreshing break away.
