We've had a wonderful second stay here. It's quite simple - having found a little piece of heaven we don't want to leave! Thanks for providing the perfect place to stay.

The cottage is beautiful. Have walked for miles - the dogs will be pleased to have a rest! Will return.

Many thanks for a wonderful week. We have had a rental cottage in Suffolk for the past four years. Holly Tree Cottage is by FAR the most cosy and well-equipped.

Charming cottage, clean and very well-equipped - in a perfect location.

We have had a wonderful week in Westleton. The cottage was warm, cosy and well-equipped with everything we needed. The location was perfect, with walks straight out of the door onto lovely heathland and woodland...loads of wildlife around the area. Thanks for a great stay,

Had a lovely relaxing break with lots of walks, good birdwatching, and great to come back to the cottage each evening. The cottage had everything we needed and more!

A lovely short break here - sea, heather, pubs, walks. The cottage is absolutely delightful, cosy, comfy, pretty interior, lovely bird-busy garden.
S and F, London
Absolutely wonderful cottage, perfectly located for walks on Westleton Common. So very glad we visited Westleton and this beautiful cottage.

Barn Owls July 2022
Barn Owls 2022
Unfortunately, this year the barn owl box has been taken over by jackdaws. Barn owls have occupied the nest for 8 years with the jackdaws living in a separate compartment at the top. Breeding was successful in 7 of those 8 years. Despite a barn owl occupying the nest box this winter, the jackdaws made their move in the spring and they are now sitting on eggs. Hopefully the barn owls will make a comeback next year!
Barn Owls 2021
Barn Owls 2020
The Barn Owls stayed in the nest box throughout winter and produced a clutch of eggs this spring. Unfortunately, the camera got knocked out of position so we couldn't see the eggs or chicks very clearly. At the moment there are two healthy looking chicks in the box, who we hope to see fledging in the next few weeks. If we manage to get any decent photos, we'll post them on the news page and Twitter.
