Southwold, Suffolk, East Anglia, England
A very comfortable well furnished cottage, a well appointed property situated in a perfect spot, off the common and yet very central to all amenities. It has been furnished with great attention to detail, as we like to live in comfort!
Outside space at the front (with table and chairs) so your party can sit and watch the world go by whilst enjoying a drink (or fish and chips), cup of tea etc.. The cottages have a real 'holiday feel' about them because of the location, and yet are very homely.
There is parking (subject to availability) but we and our guests never generally have a problem parking in the lane, and there is always additional (free) parking on the common nearby which is 2 mins walk away and directly accessed on foot via Spinners Lane. It is always easy to unload/load your luggage right outside the property as Spinner...

We stayed for two nights in Weavers cottage and despite cold weather had a wonderful time in Southwold. The cottage is in a idyllic location which is a short walk from anything you could ever want or need such as the high st, beach and the common at the end of the lane for wonderful long walks to the harbour....

Management response:

We absolutely love this review! It is very informative, and is so well detailed, mentioning the location (which is fab!) and even describing the specifics of the games selection! It's great to have feedback like this so we know what people like, we can only surmise otherwise and hope people like stuff! We're always on the look out for fun...

This is an absolutely fab review! I love the detail, and there are many useful pieces of information about the cottage for our future guests.
