Southwold Harbour - All the Harbour properties overlook the water with a mix of pleasure and working boats; beyond this are open views towards Walberswick which can be approached over the nearby footbridge or on the foot ferry (summer only). There are equally delightful views from the rear windows across meadows towards the town. Town centre shops and other amenities are three quarters of a mile away (fifteen minutes delightful walk) across grazing meadows and the common, whilst the beach is a similar distance along the side of the Blyth River to the harbour mouth. There is a good eating pub nearby which welcomes children, an exceptional fish and chip restaurant; a tea room and all the hustle and bustle of a sailing and fishing community.

Great location.

Mr David Hadley,

Excellent location, and we would not hesitate to book this property again.

Mr W Rowe,

Southwold is a joy to visit, and Blackshore is a wonderful area to stay in. We parked the car when we arrived and didn't need to move it until we left again. We walked every day, into town, to the beach and/or the pier, felt relaxed, at home and welcome. What more could you wish for from a holiday. It is a charming property in a wonderful location with superb views, back towards Southwold and across to Warlberswick. Some much needed maintenance work and redecoration has been done on the property since last year which is great.

Mr Phil Barrett,
