Curlew cottage is a deceptively spacious property, decorated and furnished to a high standard with 4 bedrooms providing comfortable holiday accommodation for up to 8 guests. On the ground floor there are two bedrooms, one double with en-suite and one twin. Upstairs are two further bedrooms, one double and one twin.

There is a family shower room downstairs, together with a well equipped kitchen and a large lounge/diner overlooking the back garden. There are two large leather sofas and a dining table and seating to accommodate 8 guests. A second staircase leads from the lounge up to a snug where there are bean bags, games, toys and a TV.

In the garden there is a table, chairs and umbrella together with a large barbeque and outside lighting. The garden is fully enclosed by a fence. There is a rear gate leading out onto a driftway - perfect for taking dogs into and out of the property.

There is a bus stop across the road with buses going to Southwold in one direction and Lowestoft in the other.  Southwold is an old fashioned seaside town with a reputation for good food and shops.  It has a lighthouse, pier and its own brewery and a beautiful sandy beach lined with brightly painted beach huts.  Curlew Cottage is located on the National Trail and Suffolk Coastal Path providing walks from the door.  The reed beds in Reydon and Buss Creek are popular with bird watchers.  A short drive, or cycle, down the coast is the RSPB reserve at Minsmere.

Reydon is only divided from Southwold by Buss Creek, a narrow stretch of water where the fishing boats (busses) of long ago used to tie up. All properties therefore have easy access to beaches and town centre amenities by road and various footpaths. Reydon boasts two well-stocked village stores, as well as the Randolph Hotel which has an excellent restaurant and good locals bar.
