Thank you so much for a wonderful break in Barn Owl.  It was a lovely touch to be welcomed with bread and milk and a few other essentials. The property is very user-friendly and we really enjoyed the beach at Shingle Street.  The boys became very fond of Holly!  Thank you again.  A super spot!

What a wonderful stay! A super cottage, beautifully furnished and marvellous views.  The showers have great pressure + the bath fills quickly - perfect for relaxing!!  Two tiny points - the scissors needs replacing + it would be great to provide a pack of coffee for the cafetiere rather than instant.

Thanks for all your tips on the local area + the great information folder.  We had a ball!

We will certainly look into the coffee idea. Thanks.

We had a wonderful stay at Little Owl, its such an ideal location for all, gorgeous scenery and so serene.

Diane and Chris have made a home from home with everything we needed- such a thoughtful and friendly couple with very high standards!

We'll be booking again!

Thank you Kelly. We look forward to seeing you again sometime.

Thank you for such a lovely holiday. Cottage superb (comfortable + homey) Hope the suggestions aren't too OTT!!!

Gill & Eric Walsh & friends
Not at all Gill. Thank you for the suggestions most of which we have implemented.

Thank you. We've loved being here with vistas of sea and sky - and we met a seal on the beach yesterday evening! This a wonderful place to stay and you seem to have thought of everything!

Best wishes

With two small children (and a dog!) we've had a lovely holiday at Little Owl.  There is so much to discover in this unspoilt part of Suffolk including the local forest trails, cycling on the country lanes and a lovely coastline. The cottage itself is extremely well appointed with uninterrupted views to the sea.  We would highly recommend it.

We have all had a wonderful time here - great to have family together.  Charlie (dog!) has enjoyed himself too. Ta for hospitality. Patti Colvill
