  • Thank you to the owners of The Sheiling for a really lovely week with the family. We love your cottage, so spacious, cosy, comfortable and in such a great location. The weather has been brilliant- only one wet day and lots of sunshine, walks on the beach, trips to Southwold and delcious teas and meals at The Harbour Cafe, The Anchor and Mrs T's. We hope to come back again soon.

  • Thank you once again for another lovely Autumn holiday (7th visit), weather has been very kind! Magnificent skies. A trip to Covehithe shows the power of the sea on the coastline. Glad to see the hedgehog is still in residents.

  • Our favourite place to stay in Walberswick, thank you Don & the Durrants team. Scorching hot weather- best place to be is the lovely garden or quite cold sea..

  • The house is so cosy and homely- thanks so much for access to your bicycle collection! Had a great week of birdwatching and soaking up the tranquility of Walberswick. Would recommend the Parish Lantern tea room in the village. Amazed to hear not one but several nightingales. Evening walks to hear them and see all the baby bunnies hopping about is a must.
