A charming, comfy mid-terrace holiday cottage on a quiet residential street in Pakefield near Lowestoft, with a two-minute walk to the beach and three bedrooms sleeping up to five people.
This cosy, mid-terrace cottage is on a quiet residential street in Pakefield near Lowestoft, two minutes from the beach. It has three bedrooms on the first floor, one with a single bed, one with twin singles and a third with flexible zip/link beds that can be configured as a set of twins or a double. On the first floor is also a shower room and downstairs is a family bathroom, accessed via the kitchen.
The sitting room is at the front of the cottage with a dining table, Victorian fireplace and patio doors opening onto a sunny patio. The kitchen is between the sitting room and bathroom and also has a door opening into the garden, as well as a washing machine. The garden is great for enjoying the sunshine and at the bottom is a gate which leads down to the beach.
To the front of the property is roadside parking, and a good pub is just a minute's walk away round the corner. The perfect retreat for exploring the Suffolk coastline!

Quiet cottage close to beach and all amenties
Cottage set in quiet area and well equipped, road parking for one car without any issues, as previously mentioned cottage was clean but there is a doggy smell which is noticeable every time you enter the living area, ( I am a dog lover but maybe a washable floor covering would be more suitable for rental than carpets) very close to beach and several pubs serving good food and local supermarkets. A pleasant flat walk into Lowerstoft along seafront of around 25 minutes, local buses pass within a 5 minute walk of cottage. Property condition is generally good with both bathrooms being shiny and new, however a bit of tlc and rejig to the bedrooms would make a big difference and the garden is quite overgrown in comparison to photos which made it not quite the oasis was looking forward to bbq in. Overall I enjoyed my stay and would recommend for relaxing break at the right price.
Previous Review Quite Unfair
The cottage must have gone through a revamp since the last review as it's not at all how it was previously described. The two bathrooms must have been refitted as they are both new and beautifully clean with two nice showers. It's nice and airy throughout with a good sized kitchen and everything you'll need for a holiday. The cottage was mostly clean although a few areas were missed but it certainly didn't feel dirty or dusty. There was a bit of a 'doggy' smell in the living room but nothing too bad (we're not fond of dogs and it didn't upset us). The upstairs bathroom does have clear glass but there is a roller blind which we left down so it wasn't a problem. We would definitely recommend the cottage as it's so close to the beach (around a minute walk) and just a short walk from Lowestoft. It's lovely and private even in the garden (slightly overgrown, but a haven for wildlife). Pakefield is nice and peaceful and a million miles from the more 'chavvy' areas like Great Yarmouth.
So disappointed with this cottage as have stated in lots of cottages over recent years but have never stated in one quiet like this. First when entering the cottage it had a very strong dog smell (I know this is a dog friendly cottage ) the rooms were all very dirty and dusty the kitchen cooker and microwave I had to wipe over before using sticky dust on all shelves and the floor was very sticky the living room had a most unusual uncomfortable bench settee which was so hard to sit on . Moving on to the downstairs bathroom this was so dirty mouldy and smelt we had to get some bleach and toilet cleaner as the toilet looked as if it hadn't been cleaned for weeks and the upstairs bathroom was even worse the disgusting shower was covered in mould and dirt and the toilet had no lid and the window was not glazed so you looked straight across the road into the neighbours window . The bedrooms were no better full of dust beds uncomfortable even the curtains hadn't been hung right with one curtain hung the wrong way round .The stairs were very steep and unsafe my 80 year old mother struggled to get up and down these . The garden at the back was like an overgrown jungle and no where for the dog to run . This cottage is well overpriced for what it is it could be made nice as the area is very nice close to beach and Lowestoft but it needs a lot of attention and a thorough good clean .
