Scholars Cottage is a cosy and contemporary holiday home in Reydon, adjoining the popular seaside town of Southwold. This pretty rural property is one of a terrace of cottages in a quiet spot. This charming coastal bolthole is furnished and equipped to a very high standard and offers bright and airy accommodation over two floors. The spacious living and dining area has lovely French doors taking you out into the enclosed courtyard garden, complete with table and chairs, this is a lovely spot to sit and relax and for children to play.
