A beautiful holiday apartment in Southwold with VisitEngland 'Gold Award' accreditation, coastal style interiors, pretty balcony and private parking…

Postmasters is an outstanding Edwardian apartment occupying the first floor of a prestigious period property just off the High Street. Interiors are elegant and stylish with high quality furnishings. Decorated in a neutral palette with a coastal vibe, this two bedroom self catering holiday home is all on one level. The spacious living area has a couple of sofas in a soft grey colour, dining table and chairs and a lovely working open fireplace. This bright and airy room  has access onto a small balcony overlooking the High Street. The main balcony is to the rear and is south-facing furnished with a couple of cushioned steamer chairs and a dining table and chairs for four, a lovely private spot to sit with a coffee and watch the world go by. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything you need for your self catering seaside holiday and the two bedrooms are beautiful, the principal bedroom has a super-king size bed and the second a king size bed which can be converted into twin beds on request. 

The independent shops, cafes, pubs and the popular Swan Hotel and Sutherland House are right on the doorstep. Stroll along the prom with its pastel shade beach huts, and visit the iconic pier and harbour. There are some lovely walks on the doorstep with easy access to the common and a nearby footpath takes you down to the harbour with the foot ferry to Walberswick (summer only). Don't forget that the beach is never very far away!

Postmasters is perfect for a family or two couples looking for a quality holiday home on the Suffolk coast with all amenities close at hand.

On arrival, the property was spotlessly clean. It is well located and the designated parking space was really useful. The property was well equipped and nicely appointed.

Dr K,

Excellent flat with over the post office with a large square living room. Only single glazing as it's an older character building but central heating was effective. Location in centre of town perfect for cafes and shopping, and the sea and pier only a short walk away. Quiet at night, clean and comfortable. Found the access via a steep internal staircase a bit challenging but could be easily sorted with an additional handrail.

Mrs S,

A very spacious appartment in an excellent location, right in the middle of Southwold. It is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need for a very comfortable holiday. We were there in November and enjoyed the open fire giving it a very cosy atmosphere.

Mrs W,

Super property in a superb location. Postmasters had everything we needed for a much needed family holiday. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Postmasters or Suffolk Secrets.

Mrs M,

We have stayed in Postmasters several times and the property and location are first class. The apartment is beautiful and really well equipped. We love Southwold and hope to return many more times.

Mr B,

Loved Postmasters, we have stayed at this property several times in recent years. The setting overlooking the high street and watching daily life being carried out is fascinating. The quality of the furniture and fittings are second to none and you have the bonus of a small balcony at the rear of the property, brilliant for having a glass of wine and watching the sunset, what’s not to like. Just love this property.

Mr L,
