Property code: OC-CARI

Just half a mile from the beach, this lovely cottage is located in the coastal suburb of Pakefield and is a comfortable base for couples, friends and families at any time of the year. Soak your stresses away in the hot tub, enjoy an al fresco meal or recline in the spacious lounge by the wood burner - it’s time to indulge.

Attached to the owner’s house (with a private entrance), the property has been carefully designed for relaxation. Gather in the lounge and enjoy stretching out on the sofa or recliner chairs, watching the Smart TV with Blu-ray player or listening to the surround-sound system. In the winter you can light the wood burner for extra cosiness. The kitchen has everything you’ll need for preparing wonderful meals, including a Tassimo coffee machine for that morning wake-up. Serve up your food in the dining room, with its vibrant colour scheme. All three bedrooms are on the first floor: a king-size with a wet-room style en-suite shower room, a double and a twin. They share a shower room with a wet-room-style shower. There’s furniture in the enclosed garden area for outdoor dining, as well as a hot tub (which is available from March until October). You also have the option of requesting pizzas cooked by the owner in the brick-built pizza oven.

Pakefield lies on the edge of the coastal town of Lowestoft, Britain’s most easterly town. This popular resort offers a combination of sandy beaches, coastal walks and family attractions - from donkey rides to a roller disco - that make it ideal for anyone wanting a traditional seaside experience. There’s a great choice of days out within 5 miles, including the East Anglia Transport Museum, Africa Alive Zoological Reserve, Oulton Broad water sports centre and Pleasurewood Hills theme park.

A beautifully appointed property. Steve, the owner, is exceptionally friendly and helpful and goes to great lengths to point out the best places to eat and local places of interest. The house is very clean, comfortable, and spacious and comes equipped with all mod cons. The outside garden is lovely and comes equipped with a hot tub and pizza oven.
