Well Cottage is a wonderfully cosy holiday cottage in an excellent location. Only a short walk into Southwold’s town and a ten-minute walk to Southwold’s beach and pier, Well Cottage is in a quieter space, providing guests with the best of both worlds. The holiday cottage is found alongside North Green, a lovely suburban area of Southwold, surrounded by greenery and managed common areas with benches and pretty shrubbery. Well Cottage is perfect for small families and couples wanting to visit one of Suffolk’s most popular seaside towns. 

As you enter Well Cottage, guests will find the cosy sitting room complete with an open fire, perfect for warming up your toes after a brisk walk along the Suffolk coastline. The cottage’s kitchen is well equipped with all amenities needed for a self-catering holiday and the perfectly sized dining room is a great place to enjoy breakfasts lunches and dinners together. An added bonus of two toilets can be found in the cottage, with the main bathroom providing guests with a choice of either a bath or shower. The master bedroom has a king sized bed and vanity area, ideal when getting ready in the mornings and evenings. The second bedroom has a quirky loft bed with access via a ladder, an exciting escape for children who enjoy sleeping somewhere a little different. 

Throughout the property, guests will love the nautical themes which suit the area in which Well Cottage is situated. Comfy furniture accentuates the cottage’s cosy feel and characteristic sash windows keep the cottage bright and inviting. Shop: 200 yards Pub: 100 yards.
