Sandcastle Cottage, a delightful extended fisherman’s cottage, just a short distance from the beach and High Street is deceptively spacious and family-friendly.

Just a short stroll from the much-loved Southwold High Street, and of course the beach itself, Sandcastle Cottage is just waiting to welcome you on your next self-catering holiday on the Suffolk coast. So utterly perfect for families and friends looking for a relaxing break at the seaside - don't forget to bring your buckets and spades for making impressive castles on the sandy shoreline. 

Sandcastle Cottage benefits from 3 good size bedrooms, with a lovely light master bedroom at the front with superking bed and TV. During the school holidays and weekends you may wish to sit here and watch the resident horse and carriage clip-clop past on a tour of the town - great entertainment for all ages. Teenagers will love going for an 'explore' in the town itself (a 5 minute walk from the cottage); perhaps buying an ice cream from around the corner, or browsing the selection of independent and high street shops. With two small supermarkets within walking distance, why not have a barbecue? Open up the kitchen and dining room doors onto the enclosed sunny courtyard and sit back and enjoy. Not forgetting days spent down by the sea - with a separate utility room, swimming costumes and beach equipment can be stored and dried out of the way of the main house. 

Sandcastle Cottage is perfect for holidays all year round, not just in Summer. With a generous sitting room complete with log burner - look forward to cosy evenings in front of the fire playing a board game, or listening to music. Christmas here will be magical. 

So to experience the utter joy of Sandcastle Cottage for yourself, do book quickly to avoid disappointment! Shop: 100 yards Pub: 100 yards.
