The Headmasters House is an extremely comfortable and pleasant holiday base. The house is very well equipped and the secure, pretty front garden was a real asset for our small dog. The house is not overlooked and positioned on a very quiet , small estate. Our bikes were securely stored in the drying room and there was plenty of parking space for two cars. We would definitely enjoy staying at the Headmasters House again.

Mrs D,

The house was very clean and the rooms were really good sized for my family of four. The two bathrooms were very handy. The bed linen was fresh and crisp and the beds were very comfortable to sleep in. There was a little desk and chair upstairs which was good for reading, my son enjoyed sitting there to look at his laptop and handy for drying my hair as there is a big mirror on the wall! The garden was pretty, and even though it is to the front of the property it has well established shrubs and lavender that made it private from the road, and a nice little bistro set to enjoy the fresh air. Private parking right to the front of the house which was great, and a must for my husband. A short drive from southwold beach (5 mins). We had an amazing stay at The Headmasters House and hope to return next year. Thank you for having us

Mrs Lydia P,

This delightful property has everything you could wish for from a holiday let. Highly recommended.
