This elegant and comfortable apartment in charming Southwold offers an ideal seaside retreat for two, plus their canine companions. Just 100 metres from the beach and promenade, the spacious ground-floor apartment is set in a beautifully restored Victorian house, close to shops, cafes and restaurants. Southwold has a wealth of attractions and lovely coastal and country villages are within easy reach.

A fine, shared entrance hall with a tiled floor leads to the apartment and a bright, open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. Light from a bay and side windows, high ceilings and pale wooden flooring enhance the airy feel of this space, along with furnishings in white and pale marine shades. Comfortable seating comprises an armchair and sofa, which can be used as a bed for an extra guest. The streamlined contemporary kitchen has a neat dining area, with a double bedroom and bathroom completing this lovely holiday home.

While seasonal restrictions apply on busy areas of the beach, your pups can run free on a designated stretch of sand. Pretty Walberswick village, a short ferry ride away across the River Blyth, has a large, dog-friendly beach throughout the year. The village, with a pub and nature reserve, is a great spot for peaceful walks and spotting wildlife. Must-see sights in Southwold include its landmark lighthouse, with tours on open days and the splendid Edwardian pier. You can try your luck in the pier’s traditional amusement arcade and enjoy a drink in one of the cafes above the waves. Take in a film at the tiny, 70-seat Electric Picture Palace and visit the tiny cottage museum. Further afield, Thorington Theatre (6.5 miles), has a lively programme of events in a purpose-built woodland amphitheatre.

Loved it, Southwold is one of my favourite places and The Blyth was just perfect - comfortable, spotlessly clean, it had everything you need and is in an ideal position for both the town and the sea. Having mostly wooden flooring, it is also ideal for dogs. I didn't want to come home and can't wait for my next visit! . .
