A very comfortable and attractive property with one car parking space. Situated within easy walking distance of high street shops, restaurants and sea front, but still quiet and secluded.

Mr W,

Very comfortable property with an excellent location including off-street parking

Mr O,

Great location just off the High Street, but tucked away enough to be peaceful. Nice and cosy, loved sitting at the dining table watching the sun set. Well equipped, always handy having a washing machine when at the beach! A great base to explore from.

Mrs E,

Amazing location and great size property for a family visit to Southwold. The private parking is a great feature to remove the parking stress in busy periods. Everything on your doorstep and very comfortable stay. We are going back!!

Mr C,

A very comfortable stay in this excellently located property. Southwold on your doorstep, what more do you want!

Mr L,

Quirky upside down property comfortable with some unusual features eg balcony and spiral staircase to garden. Rooms are decorated with original artwork from the owners.

Mrs H,

Very comfortable and conveniently located.

Dr B,

The upside down layout maximises the light, and the views. I felt uplifted as soon as we walked in. The kitchen was well equipped, and we enjoyed entertaining friends. The flower bed on the approach to the front door is absolutely lovely - packed with plants of all sorts. Beds were very comfortable.

Mrs C,
