The Lonely Planet Guide to England says:
".... this lovely B & B is one of the best in the area, " "Gorse House is a 1920s detached property just over the bridge in Reydon. This means that you can walk to the centre of Southwold in just 10 minutes and can leave your car by the house in our spacious off-road front car park. One of the great advantages of our location is that there is excellent walking in almost every direction. The owners are are both keen wildlife watchers - birds, mammals, reptiles, & increasingly, insects, moths, & butterflies. They have a real passion for the nature in and around Suffolk and have travelled to every continent except Antarctica."
