Escape to the seaside with your loved one or a friend, and stay at this delightful, contemporary bolthole in the pretty town of Southwold. Spend days on the beach or wandering coastal walks, before having a relaxing evening dining alfresco in your own private courtyard at this attractive apartment.

Set over one level, this stylish studio has been thoughtfully designed to maximise space while still containing everything you will need. The open-plan living space has high, beamed ceilings and large windows allow light to flood in, making the space bright and airy. Rustle up tasty meals in the well-equipped kitchenette and enjoy eating together at the dining table. Cosy up on the sofas and watch movies of an evening before pulling down the two twin beds, cleverly hidden in the wall, and getting some much-needed shuteye. A stylish shower room completes the interior. Outside through the patio doors is a lovely courtyard with comfortable seating.

The charming town of Southwold has a fabulous stretch of sandy shoreline, which can be accessed on foot just 150 metres away. You will also find plenty of places to eat and shops to peruse in the town. Hire surfboards and stand-up paddleboards at Denes Beach (1 mile) and take to the water. Hire a bike and enjoy the many cycle routes winding through the countryside, or take a walk and spot wildlife at the Suffolk Coast National Nature Reserve (3 miles). Visit Adnams Distillery (50 metres) and have a tour of the brewery, or take a trip to the fabulous Southwold Maize Maze (2 miles).

I booked The Folly so I could join family on holiday. I was staying here alone and it was perfect for one. The property is in a good location- very near the high street and a few minutes walk to the beach. The Folly is light & airy. Blinds keep the space private from another holiday property across the yard. There are two pull-out beds which arRead moree surprisingly comfortable and easy to use. The bathroom is small, but everything works well. The kitchen is fairly well equipped, I must admit I didnt cook many meals. The sitting area is pleasant and the sofas are comfortable too. Everything I needed for a weeks stay. Hide

The Folly is a very comfortable place to stay in the centre of Southwold. It has everything you need to make you feel at home and feels very spacious for the size as it is very well designed.

A comfortable modern open plan property situated in the centre of town but surprisingly quiet. Our Christmas break was perfect in wonderful Southwold. Upon arrival we found a pleasant surprise: a Christmas tree, panettone and a bottle of champagne; a kind gesture.
