you cant beat the view

fantastic apartment, great view over the sea and lying in bed looking at the sea takes some beating, and the beach is just a very short walk across the grass. plenty of local shops but a very quiet location

Seascope

Firstly, our impression was, everything is just as the ads said, and more! There were lovely surprises in many cupboards, the special care and attention made all the difference to our stay from the outset. The location was easy to find and all the people we met were friendly. The accommodation lent itself to whatever the weather, it was up to it. The view from the main bedroom was nothing short of stunning! However, our stay was blessed with fab weather. All in all we look forward to booking again. Although we also want to try other sites, with Sykes of course. Very happy memories!

Relaxing

We found the property lovely and clean, there is no conventional oven or freezer the area is very quiet an excellent place to take your dog really dog friendly. To reach the actually sea it was further away than it shows in the photos.Be warned to reach the beach there are several steep steps its quite a hike. . The views from this property are lovely. There are several shops nearby All in all a nice relaxing holiday

Very good value for money and quiet location

This is not a second home but a holiday home and so has little differences. For example there is no freezer and the microwave is also the grill and oven. Having said that there was everything that we needed. Seascope is on a small holiday estate that is very well maintained and peaceful. Shops (including a chippy) are half a mile away. The Waterfront Restaurant (very good and reasonably priced) and the Sailors Home Pub (busy but good food in large portions and reasonably priced) are three quarters of a mile away. The cleaning was the only slight downside - it was adequate but not as thorough as it might have been. We needed to move the settee to recover something and that hadn't been done for a while. Underneath the double bed hadn't seen a vacuum cleaner for a some time either. These were very minor points and overall the cleaning was fine. The rental price was very competitive and we'd go again.

Good location

Bright holiday accommodation with amazing views. Don't be put off on arrival as you may be concerned about what you have booked. Park up and walk around to the front of the building where you have an amazing sea view which is undisturbed. The gardens are well kept and there is a private gate down to the 'living' beach. A great place when looking for somewhere to take the dog. We did come home two days early as the bed mattress was far too hard for me and the pillows are extremely flat even when folded in half - would suggest you take your own. The double bedroom has a fantastic view of the beach and the seating allows you to enjoy it either from the bedroom or balcony. Hangers in the wardrobe need to be changed as they bend almost in half when you hang a pair of trousers on them but there is plenty of storage for a holiday. You are left with a good variety of towels but would suggest you use the downstairs shower for power rather than the upstairs shower. You can walk to the Waterfront Restaurant or Sailors Inn along the coast as well as village shops. It is not a seaside village but a good location for visiting Suffolk. Would suggest you get the car to The Five Bells Inn near Southwold. Watch out for the estate caretaker who walks around ensuring all rules are obey - even though you won't have heard of them. I agree with the review in June that the place does need a clean - it was cleaner when I left it than when we arrived.

a great location and a lovely little house

we loved our week here, we didn't find the beach too far, we also worked out a short walk along the cliff path to the north and go down the next set of steps you find gives quite a bit of sand. The place was clean and bright. We loved the children's outdoor toys and DVD's. We spotted a previous comment before we left regarding the shower upstairs but we found plug in the pump in the cupboard and it was the best shower ever, although the cable took a little wiggling to reach the plug socket. We would have liked a little info about the village, it would be nice if something could be written about where to find the shops/ play parks etc. There as a lot around which we found by exploring, which is fun but even just directions to the sand would enhance the stay. We would recommend this to others and if we visited the area again would certainly start with this place on our short list.
