Gulls Nest is a charming Victorian red brick cottage located in the heart of the coastal town of Southwold, a real seaside gem within Suffolk. This cosy semi-detached cottage with nautical touches throughout and the bonus of private parking provides small families a great base for a self-catering break. Inside Gulls Nest there is a country-style open plan kitchen and dining area which is the perfect space for guests to socialise. The kitchen comes complete with cream kitchen units and all appliances needed for enjoying self-catering with your guests. On a warm summers day you can pop open the doors to the courtyard area providing even more space for everyone to gather together. Also on the ground floor is the contemporary bathroom which has floor-to-ceiling polished natural tiles. You can opt for a long soak in the bath or alternatively use the large rainfall shower which towers above. Up the carpeted stairs to the first floor are two spacious bedrooms. The master bedroom has a king size bed with coordinated oak furniture with plenty of storage. There is also a small but very handy En-Suite cloakroom. The second bedroom has two single beds with coordinated oak furniture and sea-themed pictures. Both bedrooms reflect their historic roots with the original feature fireplaces still present.
