When visiting the coast, nothing seems more ideal than finding a holiday home where there are only a few steps from the front door to the beach. The historic Craighurst building is found on Southwold seafront. Its front exterior faces out to sea and it is just a stone throw away from the eccentric Southwold Pier. Part of The Craighurst, a large Edwardian building, 10 the Craighurst is one of twelve apartments. Originally three terraced houses, The Craighurst has an interesting history, being bombed during the Second World War and enduring substantial damage along with many other buildings in Southwold at that time. Thankfully, the building was saved in the 1980’s when it was turned into a hotel and restaurant. When these eventually closed in the 2000’s, final renovations began to turn The Craighurst into the characteristic apartments that they are today.
Recently undergoing refurbishment, 10 The Craighurst boasts handsome interior throughout. Modern and antique furnishings are combined perfectly together along with Farrow and Ball White tone colour palettes which create a calm, eye-pleasing environment. The impressively sized sitting area is the perfect place to unwind. Guests can enjoy watching the 34-inch flat screen on the extra large, deep sofa, or sit at the table thoughtfully placed to make the most the fantastic sea views as the sun pours through the ceiling height bay window. Large glass doors, which can be opened fully, create an opened planned environment leading from the sitting room to the kitchen/diner. Incredibly spacious, the wonderful kitchen dining area means cookers and eaters can enjoy time together and utilise the fully equipped kitchen which ensures the self-catering holiday home can be used to its full potential. Guests will sink into a deep slumber in the master bedrooms super king sized bed, complete with the highest quality luxury thread count bedding. Children will enjoy the fun bunk beds and Ralph Lauren map wallpaper in bedroom number two. The white and navy bathroom complements the apartments themes with a contemporary sink and over bath shower.
The apartment has the added bonus of a private entrance and is just a short walk to Southwold High Street which has a great choice of shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs. The iconic Sole Bay Inn, a great little seaside pub, is just 100 yards away housing a fantastic range of Southwold’s Adams products and is located just under Southwold’s lighthouse.10 The Craighurst is the epitome base when holidaying in Suffolk. Shop: 300 yards Pub: 100 yards.
Why We Love This Property: We would be silly not to mention the outstanding sea views that make 10 The Craighurst so special. Southwold’s unspoilt coastline provides the apartment with its stunning outlooks where guests of the holiday home can experience a truly unique UK holiday stay as they watch The North Sea waves breaking on the Southwold shore from the comfort of the luxurious sitting room.

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.

Lovely property and we'll be back.Mrs Nicola Palfrey - 23rd April 2018
Beautifully appointed property in a perfect location, ive stayed in many properties over the years in Southwold , South Green house was a firm favourite for a few years until its recent refurbishment made it a bit too expensive, however I rate no 10 the Craighurst as on par for décor .....a beautiful little apartment in a great location, we will be visitors again.Mr John Paul - 21st February 2018
