We thought the property was outstanding and wish we had found it when the children were younger as it was so well equipped (better than at home) and near the beach. Which meant coming back for anything was easy. Even having the courtyard sun trap to enjoy our lunch outside was a bonus.

Mrs Wendy J,

Tall Cottage was beautifully decorated, well stocked and large enough for a big family gathering whilst having enough room for peaceful retreats and comfort for all. Close to the Sole Bay Inn that was pleasant and served nice food, close to both the shops, the pier for the kids and the beach just around the corner. We love Southwold and loved this house. We'll definitely be back here!

Past Customer,

Lovely house and perfect for a family Christmas. We’ll be back.

Ms J R,
