Situated in the very heart of the quintessential seaside village of Walberswick, sits Hollyhocks – a charming and welcoming holiday home perfect for your next Suffolk staycation. With the sandy shores and beautiful walks just a stone’s throw from the front door, this is an ideal spot for relaxing and having convenience during your stay.

This charming and beautifully presented property offers a great space for four. Entering the lobby from the garden, you will find a utility space ideal for coats, shoes and sandy feet! Housing a washing machine and a separate ground floor cloakroom in here further adds to the convenience for your stay. Hollyhocks offers a farmhouse style kitchen/diner which is a generous space for whipping up some culinary delights and reminiscing after days spent exploring this beautiful coastline over a home cooked meal. With beautiful bespoke units, this well-crafted kitchen is a great space for prepping meals during your stay. To the front of this charming cottage is the sitting room which has comfortable seating and a Smart TV. The light and airy space is made private with café style shutters at the front window.

Upstairs, you will find two bedrooms and a spacious shower room. The master bedroom is a generous room hosting a king size bed and you can open the shutters and look out towards the distant sea. Again, your privacy is in mind here with shutters at the windows. The second bedroom sits to the rear of the property, overlooking the rear courtyard garden. It is beautifully presented and hosts full size twin single beds, making this an ideal property for families and friends looking to holiday in this popular location.

Outside the cottage has a small front garden and, to the rear, a pretty, private, fully enclosed, courtyard style garden offering peace of mind to any visitors with pets or young children. The gate has a high latch as added safety for young children. Start your day with a coffee in the morning sunshine or relax out here into the evening; whatever you decide, this well-presented courtyard with pretty borders is the perfect addition to this seaside cottage.

So, to be in a prime position in this gorgeous seaside village then we truly do recommend a stay at Hollyhocks.

We had a lovely stay in Hollyhocks, a very cosy cottage in a great location. It was a perfect size for the four of us and a dog!

Mrs C,

Very cosy cottage, great location, highly recommend

Mrs B,

Super location for beach walks, walks and access to other Suffolk villages. Local amenities are few in number but high in quality from the pub to the deli to the tea rooms. We ate really well. Cottage was well equipped, tastefully and thoughtfully furnished and spotlessly clean, which made us feel comfortable from the off. Bijou, but everything we needed for a lovely family week away.

Ms M,
