Originally the coach house for the ‘Centre Cliff Hotel’ on Southwold’s seafront, Flint Cottage is in a prime location both overlooking the sea and in the historic part of the town. There are two private parking spaces adjacent to the property on the private gravel courtyard. Inside the cottage there are many original features including wood block parquet flooring in the hall, sitting room and dining room. Upstairs there are three bedrooms and a classic bathroom, the master bedroom has unspoilt views of the sea beyond the property’s seafront 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 a large garden in an unrivalled spot on the seafront.
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.

Wonderful location, Fabulous Flint, please don't change anything.

Mr David P,

We love staying at Flint Cottage. You can’t get a better location,especially as I have walking difficulties. We spent most of our time in the sun lounge.

Mrs Sue O,

Location is fantastic
