With views of the Southwold marshes, harbour and beyond, Spindrift is an incredibly spacious self-catering holiday home in the centre of Southwold. The rooms at the front of the property look over the high street and St. Edmunds church and the rooms to the back of the property look over the neighbouring beautifully manicured gardens, the Sacred Heart church, Southwold harbour and the coastline towards Dunwich – not many properties in the high street can boast a sea view! Located only a few paces from the post office, there are shops and bakeries right on the doorstep, perfect for a morning coffee and croissant. The entrance hall offers a cloakroom, utility area and door leading to a lovely little courtyard with seating and a BBQ, perfect for the summer.

The property consists of four floors with the bathroom situated between the ground and first floor; and as you climb towards the top, this surprising property just keeps on giving. The first floor consists of a spacious lounge overlooking the bustling high street with a dining table in the large bay window, perfect for your self-catering stay. The kitchen, also situated on the first floor, is bright and airy with everything you need for a self-catering holiday on the coast; little details added by the owner add charm to the property and illustrate how much they want you to be able to relax and enjoy your stay.

The second floor consists of the three bedrooms with an additional cloakroom; each bedroom offers a different set up which creates flexible living for families or groups of friends. They each offer storage for use during your stay and those same wonderful views!

The third and final floor is the icing on the cake; a glass balustrade welcomes you to a large additional sitting room with the most outstanding view of all. It also boasts a large sofa, TV and table football – perfect! Shop: 100 yards Pub: 175 yards

Why we love this property: Spindrift is incredibly spacious considering its central location and the view from the top is not to be missed!

This property was very convenient for the town centre while also proving quieter than expected. The main bedroom bed was comfortable. The views were splendid.
