Guest Comments

"The Shipwreck is a really beautifully presented and appointed 3 storey end of terrace. The secure terraced garden is an oasis of calm and our older dog loved the sunspots throughout the day. With plenty of lovely takeaways and restaurants within walking and short drives and ideally placed for Oulton Broads and of course trips to Norfolk and throughout Suffolk. The little welcome extras from the host were very much appreciated and communications were excellent. We'd love to come back another time."

"Fantastic accommodation. The owner, Stephen, has an eye for visual perfection and it really shows. The perfectly chilled bottle of wine he had waiting for us on arrival was a very welcome touch after the drive. The area has lots to offer and Stephen gave us lots of good tips on where to go. Would highly recommend. With thanks"

What made it really special was the incredible view from the lounge and bedrooms, absolutely stunning!We also had a pleasure of meeting the owner Stephen. Big thank you for all the personal touches and recommendations. We had a lovely stay and will highly recommend the Shipwreck to friends and family.Maggie, Frank and James"

"A deceptively spacious end of terrace property which has been renovated to a high standard. A great deal of thought has gone into the interior design features and it is certainly one of the nicest properties we have rented. Spotlessly clean when we arrived. Parking can be an issue as there seems to be a great demand for on street spaces. Good outside space running down to the water's edge although the weather was not good enough to enable us to take full advantage. Good base for exploring the Suffolk coastline."

David, November 2020

"Great stay in this lovely modern homely cottage. Quiet area. Easy to find. All the comforts you need - well equipped. Cosy and warm. Comfy beds. Less than 10 mins walk to the local pubs and restaurants. Nice neighbours. Easy on street parking. Will be back."
