Overview

About the property

3 bedroom seaside house with sea views close to high st & great Southwold pubs

East Cliff House is a beautiful Victorian cottage just a few off-road steps from the beach & the famous Southwold beach huts with glorious sea views. The house has recently been completely refurbished with new kitchen, bathrooms and underfloor heating throughout. There are 3 bedrooms; a double, a twin & a room with bunkbeds. There is a shower room, bathroom with over-bath shower & downstairs toilet.

On the ground floor you will find the re-furbished kitchen with fridge, dishwasher, gas hob and electric oven. The washing machine is in a separate pantry off the kitchen. The downstairs loo is near the back door. Walking from the kitchen towards the front of the house you will find the lovely light dining room which seats 6 comfortably and has sea views. Finally you will find the sitting room which is at the front of the house and which features the house's beautiful curved corner wall. There are 2 large sofas and a small woodburning stove for the cooler evenings. The TV offers free access to Netflix as well as the usual channels.

On the first floor there is a double room with sea views and which leads to a small landing with a comfy chair and wonderful views. Ideal for a quiet read or snooze! The twin room has two large windows with glorious views of the green and sea. The bunk bed room is situated at the back of the house and is decorated with light coloured walls and bright coloured bunting.

Outside at the back of the house is a small courtyard accessed from the alleyway at the side of the house with retractable washing line and enough space to store a couple of bikes, surf boards etc

Free wifi access is provided.

Bedlinen and towels are provided but not beach towels. A travel cot is available on request.

Cosy,comfortable cottage...perfect for a winter stay,

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a half term break staying in Eastcliff House.

There were 5 of us all together.4 adults and our 14 year old.

We found Southwold a wonderful place to stay and the position of the cottage absolutely perfect..

Hubby and I shared the twin room whilst our daughter and son in law had the double.

The bunk room was loved by the teenager....not at all uncool!

My overriding memory of this holiday will always be waking to the sound of the sea and lying in my incredibly comfortable bed looking out of the window at the sun rising over the water.

The house is well equipped with fluffy towels and lovely cotton bedding.

The log burner is easy to operate and was very welcome come the evenings!

Everything you need is on the doorstep. We will REALLY miss the Two Magpies bakery....sensational bread and cakes! We actually bought several loaves home for the freezer!

The five of us visited Gallery Thea at the end of the main shopping street and painted various ceramic items. We spent a very enjoyable 2.5 hours there and were thrilled with the results when we picked our masterpieces up at the end of the week.

Local pubs are great...Our daughter and son in law loved the Lord Nelson which is a stone's throw and around the corner from the cottage. We ate in the Sole Bay Inn which was fabulous.

The lovely pier is well worth a stroll to.

We did get out and about a bit but it would have been easy just to stay in Southwold as there is a lot to do. We feel that we didn't do everything that we could have done and look forward to a return visit.

No parking outside the house but it wasn't a problem. We always managed to find a space nearby.

Overall....a fabulous little town and a wonderful cottage. We will definitely be back.

A charming and cosy town house with fabulous sea views.

  • 5 of 5

East Cliff House was beautifully presented and continued to delight throughout our stay. Just a few steps to the beach in one direction, and to the shops in the other, it was perfectly situated for our winter break.

Very nice house in a great location and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in East Cliff House for 4 nights at the start of the year. The house is well appointed and decorated, with good, basic equipment in the kitchen and lots of interesting books on the bookshelves along with a few board games. We all slept well in the beds and the children were particularly delighted with their bedrooms - my son, in the twin rooms easily won on views out to sea; my daughter in the bunk room loved the 'den' feel of the room. We were not blessed with great weather and being on the front, did have the wind whistling around us - though good, heavy curtains kept the drafts at bay! The underfloor heating and wood burning stove keeps the house lovely and warm - a rug in the lounge would give it an even cosier feel - perhaps this is a winter thing! We encountered a small issue with a sticking door one night during our stay and Penny was fantastically responsive, having it fixed first thing the following morning, which was much appreciated. The owners clearly use this house themselves and have made it a very practical and homely place to stay and, though we are regular visitors to Southwold, we found their personal tips made both a useful and entertaining read!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This property is beautiful. A wonderful location. Listening to the sea at night in bed and watching the light house beams was magical. We spent 4 days walking on the beach, visiting the Nelson Pub and chilling in front of the log burner. The cottage is well equipped. I cooked a traditional Christmas dinner for six! Can't wait to return.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This house was just what we wanted, couldn't have been better. Very comfortable with everything you could need and in such a convenient position. Very close to the sea and shops - what more could you want.

Many thanks Penny I am sure we will be back.

About Penny Dawe

We bought East Cliff House in 2013 in a very sorry state and have loved the process of turning it into a very much loved family holiday home. We are a family of 5 and love spending time there flitting from the beach to the shops to the pubs, eating fish and chips on the beach and so much more! In the winter we love long walks along the beach and further afield and in the warmer months we enjoy swimming in the sea, surfing & relaxing outside Suzie's beach cafe which is just a few metres away from the house.

Why Penny Dawe chose Southwold

East Cliff House is in the perfect location to enjoy everything that Southwold has to offer. The house works really well for a family with different interests - there really is something close by for everyone. The beach is just a few steps away across a green so no roads to cross. There's a fantastic Adnams pub, The Nelson, just around the corner and the high street is also just a few metres away. The house is comfortable and warm with underfloor heating throughout and the kitchen and bathrooms are all newly fitted. There is a small courtyard at the back of the house where you can stomp the sand off and hang your beach clothes and towels ready for the next day and In the Sitting Room there is a cosy log burner and smart TV to unwind in the evenings.

As a fantastic extra, there is a beach hut which can be hired separately. Please contact owner for more information.
