Lovely cottage with everything you need to feel at home. The location is perfect - especially with a small child who won't walk too far! Thank you.

Previous Customer,

Excellent location and well equipped/lovely garden. Good looking decor too! Heritage Hideaways were very prompt in rectifying minor issues (eg. curtain rail in the main room).

Ms M,

Petrel Cottage is ideally placed for the town. We have stayed in Southwold many times but this is our first time with Heritage Hideaways- We hope this won't be our last! The cottage is a well equipped with everything you need for a fabulous stay. Plenty of lovely walks locally including to the harbour and over to Walberswick. Also worth calling into the fish shop at the harbour- Good selection of fresh fish!

Mr F,

We have loved our stay in Petrel Cottage. It is beautifully done, a great use of space and we very much appreciated the cleanliness and great location. Can highly recommend any of the events for children by Friends of Southwold Library- Fantastic. We have also enjoyed crabbing, the beach, a film, cycling and the playground. Thankyou Petrel Cottage and thank you Southwold!

Lilly-Phillips Family,
