"Good for overnight stay travelling to Harwich"
We were greeted by Gail and Richard with a good cup of tea/coffee and a piece of home made cake. We had underestimated our travelling time and arrived some time later than we had expected but this didn't detract from the warm welcome we were given. As we were catching the 9 am ferry from Harwich we needed an early breakfast and this was provided for us at the time we requested. We stayed in the Poppy Room which had en-suite facilities and was very clean and comfortable Read less
Likes:
The bungalow was very easy to find and within a short distance of the ferry port at Hariwch. Gail and Richard were very good hosts and provided us with all our requirements. Parking was also available
