Sumptuously stylish and beautifully light, Briar Patch should be at the top of your list when it comes to deciding on your next self-catering holiday to the Suffolk coast. Thanks to a clever layout, Briar Patch is utterly perfect for a group of 8 looking to re-charge their batteries in a contemporary yet welcoming holiday home. The hub of the home is the semi-open plan living area; clever zoning defines each area making them cosy yet practical in their own right. The dining area sits in the small conservatory-style extension, flooding the room with natural light and providing wonderful views of the enclosed rear garden beyond. The lovely woodburning stove is a welcome treat come winter, whilst the outside patio is a fantastic place for al-fresco dining. With the benefit of two ground floor bedrooms, Briar Patch naturally lends itself to multi-generational parties who wish to make holiday memories together. With the benefit of off-street parking, Briar Patch is a property that truly keeps on giving.

You can enjoy all of this, yet still be within walking distance of the sea and all local amenities, perfect. Pub: 500 yards, Shop: 700 yards.

A very enjoyable week. Briar Patch was well equipped, clean and comfortable for a large family group. Southwold is perfect, wonderful pier, beach and walks from your door. Thank you so much.

Mrs C,

Very comfortable house within walking distance of the pier, the sandy beach and the town which is full of independent small shops Log burner was a wonderful feature as the weather outside during our 4 day break was close to zero. Well equipped and dog friendly- we would definitely stay here again.

Ms C,

Briar Patch is both stylish and comfortable - in an excellent location: handy for the beach and the high street. There is parking for 1 -2 cars and comfortable beds and seating. The garden is secure for children and dogs. Restaurants, pubs and all the amenities are in easy reach.

Mrs A,

Light and airy property, plenty of space inside and out, and the house is fitted to a very good standard.

Mr W,

This delightful house and garden … has been the perfect base from which to explore Southwold. We hope to return

Lovely house and great location
