Fantastic family weekend, the big table and kitchen was a real hit for that rarest of events these days - playing board and party games! Great friendly vibe would recommend to anyone considering Southwold with a large (Adult) family.

Mr Q,

We loved our stay at Brightmer Villa. It had plenty of space and the amenities were well thought about. The location is excellent as everything is within a short walk away. Will definitely be rebooking.

Miss H,
