The Old Fisherman’s Hut is a very special holiday cottage perfect for a couple wanting a comfortable, cosy stay. Guests will be surrounded by views of the Suffolk coastline with the property having a generous number of windows facing out towards the River Blyth, Southwold’s harbour and Southwold’s Blackshore. Looking out of the front of the property, guests will see fishing and leisure boats drifting by and in the distance, Walberswick, which can be approached over the nearby footbridge or by foot ferry. From the back of the property, views of luscious grazing meadows can be seen rolling towards Southwold’s buzzing town, which is just a fifteen minute, scenic walk away. 

The hut has a wonderful living area. Whichever month you decide to visit, the property will be flooded with light and the wood burner is sure to keep guests warm and snug during the colder months. Comfortable soft furnishings make for a great resting place when enjoying a bit of telly or reading a good book after a long day exploring Suffolk. The outside or inside dining tables, plus two decking areas provide fantastic breakfast, lunch and dinner spots and the kitchen provides an excellent range of appliances to fulfil self-catering needs. Guests can snuggle up in the double bed and enjoy a good sized bathroom. Shop: 1-mile Pub: 50 yards.

Why We Love This Property: We would be silly to mention anything but the stunning views from The Old Fisherman’s Hut. Hours can be spent watching the world go by, and guests are spoilt for choice in which windows to gaze out of, or which decking to rest their feet on. There is just something special about watching a boat drift by whilst reading the Southwold Gazette and enjoying a morning coffee.

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.

Staying in the Old Fisherman's Hut was a fantastic experienceMrs R Rootes - 27th June 2017
The best position we have ever stayed in, and we have stayed in cottages all over the Country. An artist's paradise. If you like peace and quiet, lovely scenery, beach nearby, good pub a few yards away and walks on your doorstep, this is the place for you.Mrs H Morris - 12th June 2017
Great property in great location!Mr T Ball - 31st May 2017

Absolutely fantastic location and appreciated the well equipped kitchen and thoughtful supply of DVD's, books etc.Miss N Crouch - 5th April 2016
The Old Fisherman's Hut is our favourite place to stay not, just in Southwold but in the U.K. as a whole. It has everything you could wish for, scenery, peace and quiet, and an escape from an increasingly mad world. Suffolk Secrets offer a great range of cottages in some great locations and in our opinion nowhere can beat Southwold and Walberswick.Mr Richard Snutch - 15th March 2016
The location is absolutely perfect. Couldn't be better in fact. I wanted somewhere completely detached from reality, where I could unplug from the stresses of London life and chill, and it delivers perfectly. Had a true moment of peace at midnight, venturing out to the bridge over the Blythe to take some photos of the stars. For a moment, I was truly at peace. It's a wonderful place, really conducive to creativity, and I can't wait to return.Mr Andrew Dobson - 16th February 2016
To find the cottage with the lights on and warm was absolutely fantastic.Mr LIONE Levinson - 25th November 2015
The Fisherman's Hut is what it is but I love it exactly as it is.Mrs S Ripp - 17th November 2015
We loved our stay at the Fisherman's Hut, the location, the rustic charm, and the surrounding area outstanding.Ms Elizabeth Snell - 26th October 2015
A lovely quaint little property right by the harbour - beautiful setting for a holiday for two.Mr Mark Lewis - 18th August 2015
We loved the views from our accommodation, walks, beach, food and watching the birds.Mrs J Morley - 26th June 2015
Wonderful location and warm and weatherproof. Unbeatable location and views and sunsets.Miss A Kittridge - 11th June 2015
