  • 3 Star Gold


The Lookout can be found in Southwold High Street, above the Farmhouse Bakery, in the heart of one of Suffolk's most treasured seaside towns. Guests will love being on the doorstep of Southwold shops, beach and Common.

When entering the property, guests will discover the open plan kitchen, living room and diner. For chillier times of the year, an electric, wood burner style fire keeps the apartment toasty whilst big, sash windows let in floods of natural light. The nautical themes in The Lookout create calming surroundings, fitting perfectly with the location of the flat. Comfortable sofas mean that all four guests can enjoy relaxing by the fire, and a dining table creates a great space for guests to enjoy eating together. The well-equipped kitchen is perfect for self-catered breakfasts, lunches, or dinners, should the guests wish to eat in.

The nautical theme runs through the apartment and into the cosy bedrooms. Located at the back of the apartment and down a small staircase, guests won’t need to worry about the noise from Southwold High Street as they will be tucked up, nice and cosy away from the hustle and bustle. The family bathroom has a large shower bath and a heated shower rail.

Why We Love This Property: We love The Lookout’s location. Whether they fancy a shopping trip, a day at the seaside, a pub crawl or dinner at a delicious restaurant, all activities are just a short walk away.

The upper promenade is ideal for a peaceful stroll at any time of the year and provides quick access to the beach and of course, the lighthouse in the town is a good landmark.

Excellent property in a prime location and much cheaper than the others. It was warm and comfortable, excellent kitchen. Good Wi-Fi and a to capable of watching catch up. A very thoughtful welcome pack was laid on for us. I would highly recommend.

Mr G,

Stayed here for a week with my 11 year old daughter. The flat was bright, contemporary and comfortable. Location was convenient for town centre and the beach. Free car park just 5 minutes walk away.

Ms J,

A lovely bright, warm and comfortable flat in the heart of the high street. Close to the small supermarkets and all other shops and also the beach.

Mrs H,
