Rest and recharge at this coastal bolthole on the beautiful Suffolk coast. The property is set in the pretty village of Kessingland and is just 100 metres from the picturesque, rural beach. Sleeping three guests, the lodge suits couples and small families, and also has an enclosed garden for a four-legged guest. The vibrant coastal resorts of Southwold and Lowestoft are within 11 miles, and you’ll be perfectly placed for day trips to the Broads.

The stylish lodge is set amongst a complex of similar holiday homes. Inside, discover a contemporary bolthole with chic furniture and seaside accessories. After a day at the beach, relax in the bright lounge/diner, where a large picture window frames a beautiful coastal view. Share mealtimes together at the dining table, before sinking into the comfortable sofa to watch the Smart TV. On chilly evenings, fire up the wood burner to create a cosy atmosphere. Just off the lounge/diner is the galley kitchen, where you can rustle up hearty breakfasts and delicious evening meals. The property has two inviting bedrooms – a double and a single – and a stylish family bathroom. Outside, unwind in the enclosed garden, sipping a glass of wine on the swing seat, dining alfresco at the bistro set, or chilling out in the hot tub.

The traditional coastal town of Southwold makes a lovely day out. Stroll along its sandy beach, or perhaps hire a beach hut for the full seaside experience. The town has a bustling high street with independent shops and eateries, and there’s also a foot ferry across to the pretty village of Walberswick. The property is perfectly placed for exploring the Broads, with both Beccles and Oulton Broad within 10 miles. Nearby attractions include Africa Alive Zoological Reserve (1.5 miles) and Pleasurewood Hills Family Theme Park (8.5 miles).

We were looking for a relaxing holiday with our dog, which this provided perfectly. Nice enclosed garden, just a few steps down to the dunes and beach, which you overlook from the garden. Quiet location which was what we wanted, we were able to let our dog off on the dunes. Pub and good fish & chip shop plus another restaurant just a short stroll aRead moreway. Restaurant dog friendly outside, pub dog friendly inside and out. Would definitely come back. Hide
