Tourist Board Accreditation & Awards
Each of our Holiday Cottages has been inspected by an Assessor sent on behalf of Visit England (the English Tourist Board), and been awarded a ‘Star Rating’.
The Star Rating given (1 to 5 Stars) reflects the quality of the cottage – its fixtures & fittings, facilities, furnishings, equipment & contents, and its cleanliness.
All of our Holiday Cottages in Saxmundham have achieved a ‘4-Star Self Catering’ Rating, reflecting the high standards throughout. They are all re-inspected each year to confirm that these high standards required have been maintained.
