Very Good

“5 Star accommodation, at an attractive price.”

Reviewed 26 Apr 2016

This is a very well [presented and equipped cottage. It is in an idyllic location and the owners have given a great deal of thought into making a stay here as comfortable and friendly as possible. The welcome was superb and helpful, and the impression is given that nothing is too much trouble. There is an eye for detail and you really feel that the owners have troubled themselves to stand in the shoes of tenants and provide what they would like to have for a short break. I think this is the best presented cottage we have ever stayed in. We loved it....and hope to be back.

Owner's reply: Thank you Steve for taking the time to write such a kind review. We love what we do and this sort of feedback is the icing on the cake so again, a huge thank you. Hope to see you and Vanda again soon. Best wishes, Donna and Ged

“Blown away by accomodation”

Reviewed 16 Mar 2016

This is a stunning property with everything that we needed. Warm and friendly hosts and a lovely welcome with wine, chocolates and cakes. Booking was very easy and information was excellent. The location was beautiful and the walks along the river superb. The Maybush is a must! The food and service 10/10. We will be back.

Owner's reply: Thank you for such a kind review. Will look forward to seeing you again. Best wishes, Donna and Ged

“Location, Location, Location”

Reviewed 19 Feb 2016

The Boathouse totally exceeded our expectations, it's even better than it looks on the website. Everything is quality, the bathroom and shower, the underfloor heating, the fully equipped kitchen, the large airy bedroom, (with veranda, perfect for breakfast and birdspotting!), all the little extras like tea and coffee, milk, wine, chocolates, cake and even olive oil provided to make your stay special. It's very stylish and beautifully designed to flow and feels very relaxing, it's a very quiet area on the river front. Perfect for walking and wildlife spotting, there are lots of quiet lanes for cycling and exploring, or just a great retreat to get away from it all. The owners are so friendly and welcoming, Donna is a talented artist her beautiful watercolours and photographs of the area adorn the walls. I'd highly recommend staying here.

Owner's reply: Dear Sue, thank you so much for such a kind review, and so glad that you enjoyed my artwork. Looking forward to seeing you again later this year. Best wishes, Donna

“A place to relax”

Reviewed 11 Oct 2015

a lovely place to relax and unwind from the stress of life, a beautiful view of the river at a peaceful place, the family that run the business are wonderful and helpful, and always a joy to visit with. a good location for food a drinking as the Maybush pub is just down the road. so no stress to do any cooking always nice to know you can walk for a good meal.

Owner's reply: Thank you Marco and Kay. It's always good to see you. Until next time... All the best, Donna and Ged xx

“A delightful holiday cottage”

Reviewed 30 Jul 2015

Donna and Ged were very friendly and welcoming. The Boathouse is beautifully presented and immaculately clean. Unfortunately, the weather was not great, but we did have the opportunity to sit in the garden on the first day and enjoy the wonderful river views. Ged kindly took us out on his boat, so we were able to gain a different perspective of Waldringfield and the River Deben. We would certainly recommend this rental property and hope to return some time.

Owner's reply: Thank you Jane and Andrew. It was good to meet you and we will look forward to seeing you again some time. Best wishes, Donna and Ged xx

“A little piece of holiday heaven in an idyllic setting.”

Reviewed 25 Jun 2015

Donna and Ged, the owners of this property could not have done more to make this holiday home more comfortable. From the moment we stepped through the door we felt we had come to our home from home (and I am VERY fussy as my husband knows only too well!) everything has been thought of from the warm welcome to the shoe cleaning kit in the wardrobe. On arrival we were delighted to find the little 'extras' - wine, chocolates and a delicious lemon drizzle cake! There was milk in the fridge and tea bags - you can't help but feel you belong, even if it's only temporarily. It doesn't feel temporary and very soon you pad around the place as if you own it! We will return and quite honestly can't wait!

Owner's reply: Hi Jenny, thank you for such a kind review. It's always a pleasure to see you and David. Looking forward to the next time. Best wishes, Donna and Ged

What a fantastic find, could not fault in any way, an absolute credit to the owners Ged & Donna. They work so hard to make sure everything is just so. No hesitation in recommending this property to family and friends. So many extra's included and a lovely warm welcome. Thank you so much.

Owner's reply: Thank you Ann and John. Really glad you enjoyed your break. Hope to see you again some time. Best wishes, Donna and Ged

“Peace and tranquility”

Reviewed 19 May 2015

We had a wonderful week staying in The Boathouse which is fully equipped with everything you will ever need on holiday. Donna and Ged made us feel like old friends and went out of their way to make our stay perfect. The location is stunning and accommodation first class. I cannot fault anything. Our stay was perfect.

Owner's reply: Dear Sandy and Michael, thank you so much for taking the time to write such a kind review. It was a pleasure to meet you and we will hope to see you again some day. Have a lovely summer. Best wishes, Donna and Ged

“Wonderful self catering accommodation.”

Reviewed 14 Nov 2014

Just returned from a short break at The Boathouse. This has got to be the best self catering accommodation we have stayed in.After a very warm welcome from Donna we settled into the Boathouse which is very well equipt with everything you could want and a welcome pack of milk,wines,chocolates, cake and lots of useful information on the surrounding area. Very peaceful location by the river and we felt really at home for a few days. Would highly recommend to anyone and we chose The Boathouse after reading the great reviews. If you book you will not be disappointed.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much, Judith. What a really kind review. It was great to meet you and we will look forward to seeing you again. Very best wishes, Donna and Ged

“"Simply the best"”

Reviewed 25 Oct 2014

I cannot fault the Boathouse in any respect. With an excellent foodie pub a few steps away it is like having a suite in a five star hotel. Except that you are met on arrival by the friendly owners who have put a lot of care and imagination into providing quality accommodation of character. Superbly equipped, it is spacious and quietly situated with private access through the garden to the banks of the River Deben.

Owner's reply: Dear Ron and Barbara, thank you so much for such a kind review. It was a pleasure to meet you and we will hope to see you again some time. Best wishes,Donna and Ged
