Oyster Cottage, the hidden pearl in the heart of Southwold. Oyster Cottage blends all modern conveniences with the property's old world charm and was completely redecorated in 2018. It was built in the 17th century by French Huguenots fleeing France in the 1690s from religious persecution. The beams would have been recycled from old boats which was common practice at the time. Oyster Cottage is ideally situated just yards from the seafront and High Street. It provides a wonderful retreat all year round, and has the added benefit of a courtyard garden. Shop: 100 yards Pub: 100 yards.

Beautiful, clean and well appointed cottage, comfortable beds and high standard of crockery, glasses, bedding etc brilliant central location

Ms P,

Well equipped cottage, added bonus enclosed rear courtyard. Kitchen well stocked and good quality crockery, cutlery etc.

Mrs C,

Oyster Cottage was in the perfect location, moments from the town centre, just a short walk to the beach and right behind Adnams Brewery. It had everything we could need and was cosy & clean. We could not fail to recommend it and really enjoyed our stay not only in the cottage but in Southwold

Mrs R,

A most delightful property set in a convenient position near to the shops and beach. We loved Oyster Cottage which is cosy on a cold wet day and lovely and bright on a sunny one. Lots of attention to detail; everything you could want is there. We would highly recommend!

Ms T,

Oyster Cottage is an absolute delight. Beautifully decorated, calm, elegant and so so comfortable. We would definitely stay again

Mrs D,
