Really lovely cottage, close to the beach and town centre. We were even able to park in the street. great place for a holiday!Mrs S Witt - 22nd February 2016
Nice cottage that has everything that you need for a family of 4. Location is excellent, so close to the beach/town centre. Have used Suffolk Secrets for all of our visits to Southwold. Always a great service. We love Southwold and will definitely use Suffolk Secrets again.Mrs M McCaughtrie - 5th January 2016
What a lovely cosy cottage, set in a perfect location and with everything you could possibly need for a short break. Especially liked the welcome tray of goodies when we arrived and the wonderful lighthouse overlooking the property. Fantastic break with the family, a well needed rest. The Original Seaside Cottage was beautiful. Perfect for a family of four. It was located 5 mins from the sea, shops and lighthouse and 10 mins from the pier. Would highly recommend it.Mrs J Athill - 31st October 2015
