Located a short walk from the beach, in the coastal village of Kessingland, you will find Coral Cottage. This seaside bolthole will have you perfectly positioned to enjoy beach days with family or as two couples. This charming former fisherman’s cottage is small but perfectly formed with an open plan kitchen/diner/sitting room. The sitting room is well furnished with a comfortable sofa ideal for lounging. The Smart TV is ideal for those cosy movie nights in with family or friends. The kitchen/dining area is modern and well equipped with electric oven and induction hob, fridge, freezer, and microwave. It is well stocked with equipment and also has plenty of storage space for stowing away your holiday supplies, meaning you can make the most of your self-catering stay! Towards the rear of the property on the ground floor, you will find the beautiful recently refitted bathroom with clawfoot bath with overhead shower and tiled flooring.

Upstairs two cosy double bedrooms await. The master bedroom has ample storage with built in wardrobes and chest of drawers, also boasting a characterful Victorian feature fireplace.
Coral Cottage not only benefits from having the beach a stone’s throw away, it also has a pub and café just a 1 minute walk from the front door. This holiday cottage welcomes two well behaved dogs and is therefore perfect place to bring your four legged friends so they too can enjoy Kessingland’s dog friendly beach. Opposite the property you'll find a quirky little shop called 'The Beach Hut', where you can stock up on the essentials like milk, tea and snacks. The supermarkets and further amenities are just a 5 minute drive away.

Kessingland is a large village situated on the Suffolk coast only 4 miles away from the popular town of Lowestoft and a 15 minute drive from Southwold. Kessingland is both a popular family holiday destination and also an area of the highest historical importance. It has been an area of intense interest to archaeologists as Palaeolithic and Neolithic tools and implements have been found here and the remains of an ancient forest lie buried on the seabed. Offering a stunning unspoilt sandy beach perfect for those sunny summer days or those chilly winter walks to Benacre Nature Reserve. The town is home to many local shops, a restaurant called The Waterfront, which, as it’s name implies, is right on the beach. There are two friendly pubs called The Sailor's Home and Livngstone's - both of which offer Sunday lunch. In addition to a large and welcoming bar, the pub has a restaurant. The village also offers Africa Alive wildlife park. A firm favourite for any family holiday.

We had a lovely week in Kessingland. The cottage was perfect very clean and well presented and comfortable. Everything was as we hoped and more. Great location within a stones throw to the beach and perfect for visiting surrounding areas. Would definitely recommend. Hope to visit again.

Mrs K,

Coral Cottage was super clean, nicely decorated, very well equipped and provides a fantastic base to explore the Suffolk coast. The local amenities are very good with local supermarket, 2 pubs and a selection of food takeaways giving lots of eating options. Owner very responsive and friendly. Would definitely recommend and will most certainly return in the future.

mrs W,
