Nice spot, good stay in comfortable house
Very clean and well appointed. Every thing as described, everything we needed for a pleasant week long stay. We did some cooking in the house, but also used the pub - 2 doors away = great food. Private parking for one car at the rear was useful. Only one negative comment, finding a comfortable easy chair was interesting, buying a couple of new sofas/chairs would greatly increase the appeal of this holiday let.

Home from home in a perfect location
Holmlea was the perfect place for our holiday - spacious, well appointed and handy for everything we wanted and a great house to share with family. The location could not have been better.

A gorgeous place to relax
I stayed at Holmlea for a weekend with friends. The house is spacious, light and set up beautifully for spending time together. The large kitchen table with garden views is perfect for long leisurely breakfasts and dinners going on late into the night! The location can’t be faulted and we enjoyed long walks with stunning river views. I would thoroughly recommend staying here for a weekend and would have stayed much longer if I could!

Great Space, Great Location
I stayed here for a weekend with friends. The house is in a perfect location; very close to the river with beautiful walks and a fantastic pub- a stones throw away with great food and views across the river Deben. Holmlea is a gorgeous home from home, spotlessly cleaned and tastefully decorated with modern amenities. It has a perfect enclosed garden with patio, a large sociable kitchen diner, cosy snug area with fire with the option of being open plan or folding doors to section a room off. Comfortable beds and 3 bathrooms, this catered well for our needs. Warm, clean and inviting, this accommodation was perfect- thank you.

Perfect
What a beautiful home. Spacious, clean, cosy and everything you need for a fabulous weekend away. We stayed as a group of 8 girls for a long weekend and it was perfect. Three fridges meant plenty of room for food and drink. Three bathrooms was great. Open fire. Right by the river for great walks and right near the maybush pub ... not that we used the pub as we were so happy and cosy in Holmlea. Enclosed private garden. Would definitely stay again. Thank you.

Fabulous 50th
I was treated to a weekend at this beautiful house by my wonderful friends to celebrate my 50th birthday. It was the best present I could have hoped for. Great space to celebrate, plenty of fridge room and everything really well-maintained and tastefully decorated. So many happy memories created with riverside walks to add to the long list of benefits this house has. I'd highly recommend it.

Ladies who laugh
Stayed at this fabulous house for a girlie weekend and friends 50th. Perfect space to chill. Clean and beautifully decorated. 3 fridges so plenty storage for food and drink. 3 bathrooms too so nobody waiting around for long. Gorgeous Suffolk countryside to walk around. No need to leave the village but if you want to, Woodbridge not far away and just a bit further to local beach towns of Aldeburgh and Southwold. Pub literally next door which does great food. Would definitely recommend.

Loved it
We had a fantastic week in this holiday home. The house itself was clean, well-maintained and had a fantastic kitchen which meant that when we regretfully did not eat at the Maybush, it was easy to cook a meal. The beds were comfortable and all the bathrooms made life easy. Many thanks for the hand-soap in the toilets. The location is amazing, a few doors up from a pub serving outstanding food and right by the river for little scenic strolls. There is loads to see in the local area. We enjoyed Sutton Hoo, the shops at Woodbridge, Roman Colchester and the seaside at Felixstowe, (plus container port v interesting). Lots of pretty countryside to walk in and churches to visit. We'd really like to stay another time. Many thanks to the owner.
