Wonderful holiday house in a great location for the beach, shops, common and marshes

Dr D,

Very conveniently situated and very well appointed - it might sound ridiculous but it's good to stay somewhere with a decent stock of glasses!

Mr R,

The house was ideally laid out for multi generational parties. Having downstairs bedrooms was great for elderly grandparents. The large and light open plan kitchen dining and seating area was lovely and the courtyard garden was a delightful and peaceful suntrap. There was a separate sitting room where people could retire to have a quiet read.

Mrs S,

Wonderful house we’ve stayed in 3 times now. Perfect location, lots of space and very well equipped. Although in busy part of town it is peaceful and quiet in the garden. Hope to go again next year.

Mrs P,

Property in the centre of Southwold with some private parking. Very important. Four bath/shower rooms which is great. Would recommend.

Mr M,
