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.

A lovely flat, which although it doesn't directly overlook the sea, has a lovely vantage point from the porch, where there is a little table and two chairs. The sitting room area was cosy. We like to self-cater and did find space for storing food a little lacking, but kept stuff in a large bag out of the way in a corner. I would like to say that we have stayed in three different flats in this complex over the last few years, and they have all been excellent.

Mrs M,

Excellent location, 20 yards from the beach. A short stroll to the pier, and about 10 minutes walk from the town. Although no allocated parking finding a space to park generally was easy. The living room/ kitchen area was well equipped but rather dark. Beds very comfortable and as we were two adult parties having en-suite bathrooms worked well

Mrs L,

Very good location near the seafront with a view to the pier. Comfortable beds and en suite facilities for each bedroom. Well equiped kitchen area and space for sitting and relaxing.

Mrs D,
