Southwold Pier Area - It is often said that nothing changes in Southwold. However, the much-acclaimed pier was rebuilt in 2001 and was the first to be constructed in England in over fifty years. It now fits in well with the painted beach huts, promenade and colourful flowerbeds. There is a shop, cafes and an alternative amusement arcade there. The selection of properties' hereabouts makes it an ideal location to stay in Southwold if you require quiet accommodation that is also close to the beach, town centre and the many footpaths across the marshes leading you to the less explored areas of the town.

Marram House is a wonderful old house in a fantastic location. It has many fabulous original features and it was lovely and spacious for our large family gathering. The garden is also lovely and spacious. However, the house is in need of a very deep clean and a lot of TLC. We could barely open the 'conservatory' and back door to the garden. The wooden frames were so old and swollen, we were frightened that the glass in the doors would break when opening and closing them. The lounge sofas were old and could do with replacing. The cushions on the sofas also had rather unpleasant aromas, we had to remove them from the sofas. The kitchen wasn't very well equipped and most of the crockery and saucepans were dirty with unpleasant scratched surfaces on the saucepans. Most of the surfaces were sticky. The dishwasher was not very efficient, the dishes came out dirty. There were only 3 dishwasher tabs left for us, so we spent lots of time washing dishes and pans. Weirdly, there were about five 'steamers' for veg, but not one of them fitted either of the two available saucepans. There were only two tea towels. The bedrooms were spacious and comfy, but felt dusty, especially the curtains. We also found previous guests underwear in chest of draws in the front bedroom, the one with the cot, which, although we saw funny side, was rather unpleasant. The bathrooms were adequate, but could be updated without spoiling the character of the house. Having said all that we all loved Marram House, we didn't let these issues spoil our fun, but it would be so much improved by a good clean, new saucepans and new dishwasher.
