Southwold is a quintessentially British seaside town located on the stunning Suffolk coastline; famous for its iconic beach huts, towering lighthouse and Adnams brewery. The town is surrounded by water making it almost an island, with one road in and out; it is joined to Walberswick only by an old railway bridge, suitable for walkers and cyclists, which adds to the charm of this historic fishing town. There is a thriving community which keeps the town running; there are markets, craft fairs, street fairs and carnivals held throughout the year, celebrating both the history of the town and the local spirit. The 1600s were a historic era for Southwold; in 1634 the butchers, which still trades today, first opened its doors; in 1659 was the great fire of Southwold which saw much of the town burn to the ground and is the reason the town has its famous ‘Greens’; and 1672 saw the Battle of Solebay, in which both the English and Dutch claimed victory and is celebrated through local anniversary ales and spirits. With dog friendly pubs, footpaths to neighbouring villages, sandy beach, fish and chip shops, three convenience stores, fresh fish from the harbour, crazy golf, an array of restaurants, a brewery and a distillery, you will have plenty to enjoy when you visit this exciting and famous seaside town; just watch out for the seagulls pinching your chips!

Lovely high quality property. Excellently presented and truly comfortable. Great location, lots of space for 8 people and dog friendly, close to town, the beaches, the brewery and the golf course. No faults at all. We absolutely loved it and would highly recommend this to any one else.

Mr B,

Wonderfully situated and beautiful property. We had a family birthday celebration in the house over a long weekend and everyone was wowed by the house and it's facilities.

Mr U,

Three generations of us enjoyed an August week - all too short - in this wonderful house. Worked so well for us all, as did the town, and beach, and pier and harbour.

The W,

A beautiful house, centrally situated in Southwold. Easy access to the shops and beaches is wonderful as is the addition of the common right outside the door; great for playing cricket, frisbee and all manner of games or to sit and soak up the amazing view. The small back garden is also great for keeping the younger members of the family contained. Three generations had a wonderful stay. We loved it here and would certainly book again.

Mrs P,
