“A great little cottage in a lovely area”



We very much enjoyed our stay in The Old Courtyard. On arrival we found the cottage beautifully clean. It is very well appointed, with a high quality kitchen, good furniture, pleasant bedrooms, and a chest of childrens' toys. We were a party of four adults and three young children, but the cottage coped well with this number. The cottage is situated on a fairly quiet road. The beaches at Southwold and Walberswick are both just a few minutes' drive away, and the rural hinterland is very attractive. We consider the price we paid represented good value. In summary, The Old Courtyard is a delightful small cottage in a good situation, and one day we hope to return there for another holiday.

“This is the original chocolate box cottage with all the modern home comforts.”



My husband and I have now stayed at the 'old courtyard' twice. It has everything you need to 'get away'.

Traditional Pink Suffolk Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Pretty little cosy cottage. Stayed in Wangford as family live in the village, lovely place. Close to coast with lovely walks and countryside. Beams, wooden floors, open plan. Enough space for 4 adults. No garden but this didn't affect us in anyway. Clean, Kitchen well stocked with cutlery, crockery etc. Really felt at home and enjoyed our long weekend here and look forward to staying again.

Quaint

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for 5 days in July. The cottage was clean and comfortable. Although it should be made more clear that access to the single bedroom is through the mezzanine bedroom

The cottage has basic essentials which could maybe be upgraded. Some crockery and mugs were chipped and stained we didn't cook apart from toast so can't comment on anything else.

No mirror in the bedroom so couldn't see to dry my hair. No waste bins in each bedroom. Both outside bins were full on arrival so couldn't recycle.

We still enjoyed our stay here and would return again.

Cosy Cottage

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the Old Courtyard for a long weekend . It was clean and well equipped for our needs , it was smaller than expected but we were only 4 so it was fine . There is only the pathway leading up to the cottage as outside space and this leads on to a road so you need to be mindful of this if you are taking a dog , and also careful with small children running out the front. The location is very handy to Southwold, and there is a local well stocked shop and pub within walking distance.

We enjoyed our stay and would certainly recommend the experience .

Beautiful cottage

  • 5 of 5

The Old Courtyard is a beautiful cottage in the quiet village of Wangford. The rooms are a good size and the beds are very comfortable. We had a lovely stay over May/June half term which was unfortunately cut short due to a family emergency. We would definitely stay here again.

A lovely cosy cottage

  • 3 of 5

We loved our stay in the cottage, my three year old boys loved playing with the toys that were there, my only criticism is that the bed linen and towels were stained but other than that we certainly would return in the future.

Location

From the Owner

We fell in love with Southwold on a visit to the area when my son was only a few weeks old. The beach is stunning with beautiful yellow sand backed up by the truly unique town of Southwold. The high street has a range of small boutique shops plus coffee bars, pubs and restaurants. There really is something for everyone here. There is ample parking, lots of areas for walks and a harbour complete with working fishing boats bringing in fresh fish daily. The property is just five minutes drive from the fabulous beach. We provide information on local attractions with leaflets picked from the local tourist information centres and from former guests.
