Enjoy the Suffolk coast at this stylish one-bedroom apartment tucked away in a quiet part of Southwold, close to the beach and everything in town, it’s perfect for a romantic getaway. The ground-floor flat has superb views across the common and a shared courtyard for enjoying drinks in the sunshine.

Sitting within a pretty building in mature gardens, the flat is sophisticated yet homely, with relaxed colours, unique artworks by well-known artists, and high-end fittings, and it’s step-free except for two steps to the entrance hall. Enjoy mealtimes at the dining table in the bay window of the elegant sitting/dining room with lovely views, then relax on the comfy sofas with the TV or a good film on; the kitchen has everything you need to cook delicious meals for evenings in. Have a good night’s sleep in the stylish double bedroom in relaxing colours, it has great storage for your holiday garb, there’s also a bathroom with a shower over the bath. Take your morning cuppa or evening tipple out to the shared courtyard to soak up the sun.

Go out on walks from your front door to explore the town and visit the historic lighthouse. Head to the beach, there are two to choose from, the popular main beach is next to the Pier (less than 500 metres away) and the slightly wilder Denes beach, which is perfect for flying kites and surfing. Wander to the harbour (1 mile) where you can catch a ferry across the creek to Walberswick, home of crabbing. Go to a showing at the town’s independent cinema and stop for dinner at one of the excellent eateries on your way home. Gin lovers will enjoy visiting Adnams distillery, and everyone will be fascinated by the lifeboat museum.

This property is supposed to be 4* Consequently we would expect more than one cheap toilet roll and 3 dishwasher tablets!!. It does not represent value for money. We have had better properties for less money with other companies.

Southwold is a great destination and there are plenty of country walks around it. Good local places to visit are The Pier, Walderswick, Aldeburgh, Snape Maltings, Dunwich Beach, Dunwich Heath. The Southwold Lighthouse is worth a tour after which you can spend your voucher on a pint of Adnams in The Sole Bay Inn. If you don't like Adnams you are outRead more of luck! Hide

All the above I wrote is true and sounds rather damning. However, I do think this property can be made more comfortable with the suggestions I have made to the owners. A king sized bed with a comfortable mattress would be ideal. The location is great for Southwold and there is a lovely view from the lounge with some stunning sunsets.

Great location ideal for the town and amenities. A good base to explore the surrounding area. Southwold has great eating places but in high season may get very busy. If parking needed to be shared this could present a problem. Overall we would recommend this property.

A superb apartment in a great location. Comfortable, clean, well equipped, with amazing art works. Wonderful view from the large bay window across the garden and the common beyond. Convenient for the town, harbour and sea front. A car parking space is an added bonus. Would certainly recommend this accommodation.

This is a very good property for a couple in Southwold. My only real gripe was the two ring hob.This was pretty limiting even for the simple meal preparation that we used it for.There is plenty of room for a standard hob so this seems an odd decision. I would certainly be happy to book this property again.

The Cottage was lovely, well equipped and clean. Nice touch with the welcome goodies, much appreciated. Good situation and parking a bonus. Downsides were we had to hunt down the towels that were in a locked cupboard, fortunately the front door key fitted so not an issue. Guests in Far View 2 liked to get up before 6am and were quite noisy, walls aRead morere quite thin. Biggest moan was the hard mattress. May be ok for some people but made sleep difficult for us. Sorry. Overall, we enjoyed our stay. Hide
