Thank you very much for feedback and your kind comments regarding our holiday cottage. We take on board your comment regarding the fridge, although it is a full size under counter fridge we have now purchased an additional fridge for future guests use. With regards to the road noise, as the road is not visible from the cottage and established gardens and woodland surround the cottage we do not feel it is too intrusive to be able to sit and enjoy the surroundings. Close proximity to the road allows guests easy access to nearby places of interest and Suffolk's heritage coastline.
