We found Cornerstone to be ideally located in the centre of Southwold - it was clean and very comfortable and cosy. We will certainly re-book when we next visit the town.

Mr N,

Fabulous little 2 bed property in the heart of Southwold. Everything we needed.

Miss T,

Property is ideally situated, close to the high street and the front. It is well equipped and has everything you need, lovely place to stay.

Mrs P,

An excellent cottage, well equipped , very clean, bathrooms very good. We felt very at home and comfortable, good heating,as the weather was cold. Also a tiny distance to the shops and a view of the church. We have stayed many times in Southwold and the Cornerstone was one of the best.

Mrs J,

Lovely property in handy position for town centre and seafront. Hope to go again.

Miss D,
