- " Summerland is an auspicious debut for director Jessica Swale, one that shows her skills as both a storyteller and a filmmaker. It's a deeply personal film whose characters pop off the screen thanks to a great combination of writing and acting. " – Alex Bentley (CultureMap)
- " It's the epitome of a comfort food period drama with characters that are easy to get attached to and beautiful views of the English coast. " – Nicole Ackman (Next Best Picture)
