A delightful, welcoming, fresh, clean and well cared for property, which we will have pleasure in using again.

Mr K L,

A beautiful cottage, amazingly furnished and so warm- it was pretty cold outside. Really peaceful.

Mrs P R,

We have had many family holidays in Southwold and this was the third visit at this property. We do not venture far, enjoying the beach, shops, market and restaurants in the locality. We have booked the cottage again for next year. We love this comfortable cottage in the perfect location for our three- generation holiday. It is very child friendly with a safe playing area. Parking is easy and it is close to both Southwold and Walberswick. The beach is a 15 minute walk away and it is an excellent spot for crabbing.

Wendy P,

Our 2nd visit to this lovely house. We have enjoyed the stunning sunsets and walks to Walberswick. Great fish and chips at the harbour, lovely fresh fish, enjoyed the golf and the wonderful Electric Picture Palace.

The B,

Our 2nd visit to this lovely house. We have enjoyed the stunning sunsets and walks to Walberswick. Great fish and chips at The Harbour, lovely fresh fish. Also enjoyed the golf and the wonderful Electric Picture Palace.

The Burton Family,

A special location with wonderful views of the quayside, field to Southwold and stunning sunsets on the terrace. The house is well equipped and ideal for a wonderful Southwold holiday.

Mike B,

We were blessed with fantastic weather so no complaints. The cottage certainly lived up to expectations with all mod cons and comfortable furnishings. Our only concern was the popularity of Southwold Harbour and the number of cars it attracted. It meant that we were reluctant to leave our parking spot at the weekend for fear of not having anywhere to park on our return. This is a great cottage in a fantastic spot, away from the Southwold crowds and with a marvellous view up and down the River Blyth. We would certainly consider going back there again.

Roger M,

We have had a brilliant weekend here at 4 Blackshore celebrating my husbands 40th birthday. The cottage was beautiful and a perfect location for my crab obsessed boys. We enjoyed the walk to Southwold and the speedboat experience (we did it twice!) The only downside is we didn't have enough time to do everything so we will definately be back! Many thanks! P.s. Grace (1) also said her first word here.... And second and a cow sound! So this holiday will always be remembered.

Previous Customer,

A simply magical place. Many thanks.

The Mulkervin Family,
