    Shrimp Cottage is absolutely lovely, its really clean and tidy and is equipped with everything you need. It has board games and DVD's available for the children. It has an enclosed garden which is ideal if you have a dog. The hosts are a lovely couple and so helpful, they leave a lot of information about all the local places to visit and eat at, and which are dog friendly. The beach is less than a 5min walk away, and right near a really nice local pub/restaurant, an excellent fish restaurant and a lovely fish and chip shop. All so within a 5 min drive is Livingstones which do the best carvery with delicious desserts which is excellent value for money. My young son gave the cottage 5 stars, and absolutely loved it. We also loved it and will definitely book again.

    A lovely cosy cottage . Had everything we needed. Very clean. Enclosed small garden which was great for our dog. Shingle Beach only a 2 min walk. Kessingland it's self was very quiet, 2 pubs/restuarants a fish and chips shop and a gift shop, saying that everyone was very friendly, live music in the pub across the road Saturday night and Sunday lunch , thoroughly enjoyed the carvery and blues music Sunday afternoon! The cottage is a great base for a few days away, lovely to go back and chill there after lots of walking with the dog! Owners very friendly! Left 2 Easter eggs for the kids which was a lovely thought. Would highly recommend and would defo return!

    We had a wonderful short break at the cottage. The owners couldn’t have been kinder with information before we arrived and whilst we were there. The cottage has everything you need and was very lovely indeed. First trip to Suffolk and undoubtedly not our last. Hope to return to Shrimp Cottage. The shop over the toad was wonderful and the owner was so helpful and kind. We also really enjoyed travelling to Southwold, Aldeburgh and to Africa Alive which was at the top of the road. Highly recommend the cottage, and the extra treat of an Easter egg for the girls was a huge treat. They were genuinely delighted. Thanks to Penny and Richard for everything.

    A beautifully appointed cottage. My family of four, plus our dog, stayed here comfortably for a week. The beach is very close and there is a shop, cafe and restaurant all within a 5 minute walk. It was fabulous to have an enclosed garden to sit securely with my dog and enjoy the sun. A would highly recommend to anyone.
