Ataraxia, translating as a serene state of mind and free from worry and preoccupation, is a cosy retreat for three guests in the village of Reydon. This self-catering cottage is only a short walk from the seaside town of Southwold with its beautiful beach and quirky Pier. Winter breaks can be enjoyed in this holiday cottage with its roaring woodburner and homely feel and during the summer there is a pretty courtyard for soaking up the sun. The small but perfectly formed kitchen with its shaker style units is fully equipped with all the necessities for creating a culinary delight - in particular the Range cooker and large hob is a real bonus. With its tucked away location on a no-through road, this property makes the perfect quiet escape along the Suffolk coast. Shop: 0.1 miles Pub: 0.5 miles.

Well appointed lovely little cottage. We appreciated the welcome pack.

Mr I,

Ataraxia is a lovely, cosy cottage equipped with everything you could need for your holiday. The beds are extremely comfortable and the property is located in a very quiet residential area which is just a 10-15 minute walk into Southwold. We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay and would definitely want to visit again. Just one word of warning: the stairs in the cottage are very steep so would not be suitable for someone with mobility issues.

Mrs D,

A pleasant property in a quiet residential road. Easy parking on the road side.The cottage was well equipped and comfortable. The gardens were a bit overgrown and looked uncared for on arrival. A good location with a beautiful walk into Southwold. Whilst the neighbours were very friendly and offered us walk guides and maps they also had their television on at full volume every evening which sounded clear to hear and this felt very intrusive. This would be the only reason we wouldn’t stay here again.

Ms B,

Well situated at the coast end of a quiet, side street this was an ideal base for our holiday. Still near to amenities with a well stocked supermarket at the far end of the street this property had everything needed for a relaxing break. Comfortable main bedroom with a well equipped kitchen, little sunny garden, and a light living/dining area. Powerful shower and very clean throughout. I would recommend for a couple/ or family with one child. Close to Southwold amenities by a few minutes walk either by road, or by a path to the beach huts. We had a very relaxing time and there is plenty to see nearby - eg Sutton Hoo, Jimmy's Farm and quaint seaside resorts, such as Thorpeness _ Aldeburgh.

Previous Customer,

We were delighted with our stay at Ataraxia, where no effort had been spared for our comfort and enjoyment. Every detail had been carefully prepared. The property was exceptionally clean, warm and enticing and the 'Welcome Pack' which greeted our arrival was a very nice touch and appreciated. We spent seven nights here in all and were very much 'at home' throughout. Southwold is well known to us and its charms always 'entice' but the delights of Aldeburgh, Norwich, Bury St Edmunds, Woodbridge etc are not too far away and we were certainly not short of places to go, both near and far, which made for a most enjoyable week. We would most certainly recommend this cottage. This is our first encounter with 'Suffolk Secrets' but we would highly recommend the company for providing an excellent and attentive service at a reasonable cost, both before and during our visit.

Mr F,
