Property is in a good position and has good views, and also a nice view onto the garden. It is well placed for the amenities in the town. It has a very useful car parking space of a medium sized car.

Mr F,

We found Far View One ideal for our purposes. The location was very good with a view over the common and within easy walking distance of the town and the harbour. It was well maintained, comfortable and clean. Having its own parking space was very beneficial.

Mr P,

Far View 1 is a lovely apartment. centrally situated to all the attractions in Southwold. The apartment is comfortable, and well equipped. This is the second time we have stayed there and would choose it again if we were to visit the area on another occasion. Southwold is well equipped with restaurants, cafes and pubs, along with independent shops of various kinds. The town also has a wonderfully welcoming atmosphere. Both the apartment and the town get 10 out of 10 from us!

Mr C,

A quiet location Enjoyed the outlook from the sitting room It was well equipped and a comfortable temperature in the flat I loved the shower and bathroom

Mrs W,

A peaceful and quiet location opposite the common with a lovely view from the front room especially when the sun is setting. All facilities excellent plus the bonus of a parking space. Within easy, flat walking for the shops and restaurants. The property catered for all our needs.
