Swan House was a great place to stay for a week with the family. There were some lovely walks nearby as well as a short drive into Southwold which was delightful. The property was lovely and spacious - bigger than we'd imagined. The room with the bunk beds had 4 beds and was plenty big enough for our 3 teenagers. Thank you!
