Southwold Denes - Southwold Denes stretches from Gun Hill to the harbour's mouth and acts as a vital sea defence for the town. Suffolk Coasts and Heaths are working with several agencies to restore and maintain the area. And a very important area it is. It is the home of skylarks and little terns (please be careful not to disturb the nests) and the habitat of sea holly, sea pea and bird's foot trefoil to name a few. Our properties here enjoy the sunrise over the sea and stunning sunsets over the marshes.

Fabulous property. Open plan living great for families. Huge bedrooms and en-suites. Amazing views from the enormous terrace. Perfect for a G and T! Well equipped kitchen. Very close to the beach and the town, plus private car parking a must in Southwold. We had a fabulous time here thoroughly recommend. Hope to return next year.

Mrs B,

Fantastic property in great location.
