It's time to escape to the seaside... and Tilly's Place is calling! Longing for a bolt-hole for a long weekend in Southwold - or perhaps you're looking for a base from which to explore this beautiful area? You need look no further. Set in a prominent position above the high street, this beautiful sunlit and modern first floor apartment has been lovingly furnished to provide a true home-from-home, with all the comforts and commodities to make your holiday a perfect getaway by the Suffolk coast.

At the heart of the apartment you’ll find the contemporary open plan living area. Large sash windows look out over the popular Southwold High Street – the elevated view from the bay window gives you the perfect place to people watch and take in the rhythm of this seaside town’s vibrant high street in all its splendour. You'll find three zoned areas in this well thought out space. Pops of pink make this a colourful and fun space to be - whilst 'Tilly', the hand-crafted driftwood seahorse, makes a great talking point. The sofa is perfect for sinking into with a book or squirrelling yourself away for a cosy night in with a film.

A plush king size bed with Egyptian cotton bedding takes centre stage in the bedroom; after a long day exploring in the sea air, this is the perfect spot to recharge your batteries. There are thoughtful touches everywhere, including the large full-length mirror and Smart TV; ticking all the boxes in this home from home. Your ease has been considered too with automatic lighting in the hallway meaning you won’t need to fumble around for light switches on your way to the shower room.

Perhaps one of the best things about Tilly's Place is its positioning. You can take satisfaction knowing you really are in the centre of Southwold! With an abundance of boutique shops, cafés, restaurants and delis all on your doorstep, you won’t be short of something to do whilst experiencing this popular coastal town. There is so much to pack in during your stay; visit the Lighthouse to experience the best views and learn about Southwold’s history, indulge in a tour of Adnams distillery, a laugh is guaranteed at Southwold Pier’s 'alternative' amusements, or simply take some time to breathe in the refreshing sea air. Whether you enjoy walking, photography, cycling, bird watching, fishing, or just relaxing on Southwold’s renowned sandy beach – this wonderful seaside town is sure to find a special place in your heart and you’ll be longing to return. A much-needed restorative prescription for those longing to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. 

You can put your feet up on arrival with welcome bubbles, nibbles, teabags, coffee, sugar and fresh milk ready for your arrival.
