Really couldn't recommend this accommodation more. Perfect location a nice stroll from high street and beach. Lovely house with balconies to watch sunrise on a misty morning. Clean, comfortable, high quality furnishings and fittings. Plenty of room for our 3 families. Big garden. Really do not have any negatives to note. Felt like home for days! And Southwold itself is...

It has a beautiful long sandy beach which is adorned by colourful beach huts, a working lighthouse, harbour and stylish pier. The unique town consists mainly of Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian properties and has lovely open green areas.
Shops range from a quality butchers, greengrocers, delicatessen to chic boutique shops and art galleries. There is a good choice of hotels and restaurants and local pubs which sell the locally brewed Adnams Ales. The area is great for walking or cycling with miles of footpaths and quiet roads and tracks to cycle along. There are a couple of cycle hire shops in Southwold which stock bikes of all sizes. Southwold also has it's own Golf Course.
