A delightful holiday cottage with excellent location and a luxury feel. Not for those who are uncomfortable around technology as the house is fitted with a lot of smart technology. The quality of bedding, kitchen electricals etc. is all very high-end. Like staying in a 5 start hotel in the heart of Southwold and a warm and snuggly base for a winter break.

Mrs B,

Immaculate very well equipped property in a nice location, in the quieter part of town but still close to the sea.

Mrs H,

Lovely house. Super location minutes from the beach. Compact but perfect for our family of five and a small dog. Loved it.

Mr H,
