        Holiday stay at The Follies

        My wife and I had a wonderful holiday at the Follies. The cottage is beautifully equipped to satisfy every need. It is located in an ideal quiet woodland setting and visited by a huge selection of birds and wildlife. There are numerous waymarked paths from the cottage if like us you like walking. It is situated less than two miles from the seafront at Thorpeness and Aldeburgh and within easy reach of numerous historic places like Framlingham Castle and the Victorian Pier at Southwold. Overall a wonderful holiday, and made very welcome on arrival by the owners.

        5/5 Excellent

          A very well kept, clean property in a delightfully quiet location.

          Had a very pleasant stay in a great part of the country. The cottage is conveniently located for visiting many of the main local sights by car but also has many great walks from the front door. All in all a very good stay in a peaceful location, I would gladly return.

            Wonderful Cottage

            This cottage was just perfect with everything and more provided, plenty of crockery, cutlery, bedding etc etc. It is secluded with lovely walks direct from the cottage, was very cosy and much bigger than we expected. We stayed for Christmas week and the owners provided so much including some Christmas trees to make it festive for us. We felt at home straight away and will definitely be returning for another 'perfect' stay. Many thanks.

              Wundervoll eingerichtet und ruhig

              Sehr geschmackvoll und individuell eingerichtetes Haus in Nähe zum Strand. Besonders die gut ausgestattete Küche fanden wir toll. Der persönliche Kontakt mit den Vermietern war sehr unkompliziert und nett. Wir empfehlen 'Twothefollies' auf jeden Fall.
