Property code: OC-C27497

Escape to the coast in this beachfront lodge in the charming village of Kessingland. The holiday home, which is part of a complex of similar properties, sleeps three guests and makes the ideal bolthole for couples and small families looking to explore the Suffolk coast. The village’s rural beach is just 100 metres from the lodge, and you’ll be within easy reach of the seaside resorts of Southwold (11 miles) and Lowestoft (7 miles).

The bright and breezy coastal retreat is decorated in a contemporary style, with little nautical touches reminding you of your fantastic location. The property enjoys fabulous views across the beach and out to sea. The heart of the home is an open-plan lounge/diner, where you can relax in front of the cosy wood burner, watch a movie on the Smart TV, and share delicious dinners at the dining table. An archway leads through to the stylish kitchen, where you’ll find everything you need for a self-catering break. When it’s time for bed, choose from a pretty double bedroom or a cute single bedroom. A family bathroom completes the accommodation. Outside, listen to the sounds of the sea from the swing seat in the enclosed garden, or enjoy an al fresco meal on a summer’s evening.

From the lodge, take peaceful strolls along the shores of the sand and shingle beach, or stride out along the Suffolk Coast Path and marvel at the spectacular coastal views. Nature lovers will adore Benacre National Nature Reserve, at the southern end of the beach, with its rare seabirds and fascinating local wildlife. For a day on the water, journey 6 miles to Oulton Broad - the eastern gateway to the Broads. Hire a canoe, kayak, or paddleboard to explore the pretty waterways, or join one of the popular river cruises.

Lovely little chalet with great sea views. Fully equipped and very comfortable beds. Nice little welcome pack, tea, sugar, milk but no coffee, but we always take our own anyway! Great to have salt, vinegar & pepper for the obligatory fish & chips. Pub is a short skip along the promenade to the right of property and very friendly. The Waterfront resRead moretaurant looked lovely but was all fully booked so reserve way in advance. The best thing is it's all dog friendly! Would return. Hide

Absolutely beautiful place. Spotlessly clean, extremely comfortable and very well equipped. High quality shampoos etc in the bathroom. The views of the sea were delightful from a warm and cosy interior. We were greeted with a lovely welcome basket full of goodies too ! We simply cannot fault this delightful property and won't hesitate to return.

Castaways was an ideal holiday destination with your dog.Overlooking the sea and only a short walk to the beach which is dog friendly.The cottage had a fenced in grass area so you can let your dog out safely.The cottage was well equipped and comfortable.Hard floors so no need to worry about muddy paw prints on carpets. We hope to visit again.
