This spacious family house, which has been adapted on the ground floor, is perfect for guests with limited mobility.

Hightide is superbly located in Southwold and has recently been redecorated throughout to provide a spacious family holiday home for up to 9 people throughout the year.  The house has 4 bedrooms and 2 living areas with the large kitchen and dining area on the ground floor, plus a separate, wheelchair-accessible sitting room.  A second living room is up on the first floor and includes a sea-facing balcony, designed to take advantage of the view over the Putting Green and the iconic Southwold Pier.

All four bedrooms are spacious and well furnished with new Simba mattresses provided for extra comfort.  The single ground floor bedroom is provided with full disability features of a Volker bed with height, tilt and angle adjustability, plus a Medicare pressure relief mattress.  There is also a Felgains Invacare Ceiling Hoist (looped version) along with the tracking from the bedroom to the shower room.  This wet room has a shower, optional shower table and shower chair and WC with side bars for those who may have accessibility issues.  The hand basin is small for normal use but is designed to be at the correct height for wheelchair users and enables the wall-mounted shower table to fold down when required.  The other ground floor bedroom has an ensuite shower room with WC and washbasin.  It is a family-sized bedroom, having a double bed and a set of adult sized bunk beds.

The house has parking for three cars and a garden that wraps around the property, with a wheelchair accessible pathway, ramped decking and a side gate to keep the garden enclosed.
