Welcome to our Holiday Home!

We bought 9 The Whinlands, Thorpeness 26 years ago to be used solely as a self-catering holiday home and until last year have used local agents for our bookings. Since then we have designed a website: www.holidaycottagethorpeness.co.uk .
For our first season we have promoted no.9 monthly and are really very pleased that we have been booked for the whole of the summer season! We are now offering discounted rates for repeat bookings for next year and have also agreed to try, on a trial basis to allow guests to bring their small pets, we regret NO horses, snakes or elephants, just joking!
We are open 365 days of the year, for weekly bookings and/or weekend breaks and mid week breaks, just contact us, the owners, Angela and Chris if you have any queries, I am sure we would be able to accommodate your requirements!
We now offer a fully fitted kitchen and enclosed gardens front and back so safe for children and pets. We have this year installed BT Infinity and a Smart TV so your time at no. 9 will be a home from home experience as one of our recent guests wrote in our Visitors Book.
We hope to see more of you next year and please note Christmas 2018 is not booked yet!

Happy holidays. Angela and Chris

About the Author:

On leaving school 50 plus years ago I helped run the family arable farm for 30 years including property management for our local USAF air personel who stayed in our properties near Woodbridge. Then a 10 year stint assisting my brother in law to diversify on his farm, during this time I purchased 9 The Whinlands, Thorpeness over 25 years ago as a self-catering holiday home and have until about a year ago used local agents to find my guests. I now carry out all the booking and general repairs myself, using a local laundry for my cleaning and changeovers. At 57 I decided to start my own business, as an oil heating engineer and have just completed my 15 year, hopefully no intention to retire yet!! One of my hobbies is classic car restoration, having now rebuilt a war-time Jeep and a sportscar.
