Once you have parked in the two private parking spaces available, you are immediately transported away from the hustle and bustle of the busy town as you absorb the beauty of a property which offers everything you require for a relaxing escape. Inside, original features including the parquet flooring celebrate the history of this property; antique accessories in the sitting room are a hint to its past and the wide, multi-pane windows entice sunlight into this charming holiday home. Upstairs there are three delightful bedrooms and classic bathroom offering flexible accommodation and comfort; the master bedroom triumphs with its unspoilt views of the sea beyond the property’s stunning garden. The exterior of Flint Cottage offers two outside spaces; the enclosed courtyard is a sheltered suntrap, perfect for enjoying the summer sun, whilst beyond this is an enchanting garden in an unrivalled spot on the seafront. Staying in Flint Cottage is a unique experience, which is not to be missed. Shop: 200 yards Pub: 100 yards.

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 fifty 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.

Mrs Ruth Eyland,

The house and location were wonderful.

Mrs Johanna Guy,

Wonderful cottage with amazing sea views and central location.

Mrs Clare Brock,

This is a delightful cottage in a stunning location and provided a relaxing break.

Mrs J Whitehead,

Flint House is lovely. Ideally located in the centre of Southwold but with off road parking, a delightful garden leading to the seafront and even better secluded courtyard. It was clean and all equipment new or in pristine condition. We couldn't have had a nicer, more relaxing time or chosen a better option for a multi generational family holiday.

Mrs Alison Stevenson,
