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.

We always enjoy our stay at Shrimp cottage! Perfect location! Professional service from the Team - always helpful & efficient! Enjoy coming back to Southwold! Coming back for a week at Christmas!Mrs Millie Johnstone - 11th November 2015
We stayed at Shrimp Cottage many years ago so it was lovely to return and see how nice it still is, the house was immaculately clean too - Thank you. Southwold is perhaps the perfect holiday for a family with young children, older children, adult children, or even for you to get away without the kids. It only seems to rain at night. I think it is where the sun comes on his holidays.Mr Ian Cockerham - 28th September 2015
Wonderful area and excellent service.Ms Kerry Summers - 20th September 2015
Great LocationMiss N J Wilkinson - 20th May 2015
