“Relaxed Thoroughly.”

I came with my partner, my 4 year old son, and my elderly father and his partner.  We have had the most wonderful week here. The house is comfortable and a pleasure to stay in, we have all slept well, relaxed thoroughly and enjoyed the garden. 

The beach, the crabbing, the ferry to Southwold, the walk to the village shop, tea and cakes @ the tea rooms, lunch @ the Anchor, lobster and chips @ Sole Bay Fish Company just across the river, flying kites, Southwold pier and boating lake, Camel Oasis, surrounding villages, it has all been a joy.. and a big thank you to Trish Gower, managing agent, for her excellent suggestions and general communication.  We plan to be back next year..

“I can’t wait until next summer!”

My wife and I took an early summer break and caught the beginning of the summer sun!

Elm Gables is like a home from home - I used to spend summers up in Southwold with my Aunt as a child and this place reminds me of those times.  Walberswick and Southwold will always be in my heart.  

I can't wait until next summer!

“We go home with fond memories.”

Thanks for sharing this wonderful place with us.  We loved crabbing with the kids, rowing at Thorpness on the Meare, the walks to Southwold, the Bell, braaiing in the garden and all the races around the house with the children. We go home with fond memories.

“This is a homely house”

We came back for 2 weeks this year & over that period we hosted my elderly father & partner, friends & another family with young children.  This is a homely house with a warm atmosphere & loverly garden.  It reminds me of my Aunts house in West Cork where I spent my childhood summers.  I am so please to be able to offer my son similar halcyon memories to treasure.  We will be back next year.  Thank you!

“We had a fantastic time...”

We had a fantastic time in lovely surroundings.  The weather was brilliant.  We all enjoyed going in the sea.  We have found a new hobby - crabbing - very addictive.  We had a superb meal at The Bell - well worth a visit.  Thank you for the Welcome Pack.
