Southwold Pier Area - It is often said that nothing changes in Southwold.  However, the much acclaimed pier was rebuilt in 2001 and was the first to be constructed in England in over 50 years. It now fits in well with the painted beach huts, promenade and colourful flowerbeds. There is a shop, cafes and an alternative amusement arcade there. The selection of properties hereabouts makes it an ideal location to stay in Southwold if you require quiet accommodation that is also close to the beach, town centre and the many footpaths across the marshes leading you to the less explored areas of the town.

This is one of the best houses we have stayed in, in Southwold. Not only is it in a fantastic position right by the beach, offering sea and lighthouse views from both bedrooms, but it is also beautifully presented. It is absolutely immaculate and extremely comfortable in a way that so many rental properties just aren't. You can tell that this is house is cared for and one in which the owners want you to feel at home and you do! It is cosy, but spacious enough for four people, as well as having comfortable beds and sofas, lovely bathrooms, a great range of kitchen equipment and wifi! The presentation of this cottage deserves special praise. Dr Josef Craven - 30th October 2017
