    Shrimp Cottage, is well equipped, comfortable and set in secluded part of the owner's lovely and peaceful country garden. Two minutes walk to the beach, small shop, pub and restaurant. We will certainly return.

    A lovely, modernised, quirky cottage. Well equipped kitchen and entertainment, free WiFi a godsend. Host very welcoming, informative and friendly,but not pushy. Teas, coffee and sugar available. 15 minutes from Southwold, 4 minutes walk to Kessingland dunes. Book if you want to eat locally. Supermarket a 5 minute drive away. Local shops available. A really great choice for a relaxing holiday.

    We had a lovely few days at this very nice little cottage, very well equipped with everything you need and nice and clean. Lovely walks along the beach with our little dog. I think a footpath leading to the cottage would be a good thing as it was a bit muddy walking up to the cottage. Would recommend this cottage.

    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.

    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.
