About the property

Holiday cottage in Reydon, Nr. Southwold, Suffolk, England - Peaceful Location, A Minute From The Marshes And 10 Minutes Walk From Southwold High Street And Pier

Bridget's cottage is a cosy Victorian cottage situated a stone's throw from the marshes and the scenic path along by Buss Creek that leads to North beach and the Pier.

In the Summer the cottage is flooded with light and you can eat outside in the sunny garden from first thing in the morning until the sun disappears. In the Winter you can curl up in front of the cosy wood burning stove.

Opposite this charming cottage there is a village store offering a wide range of fresh produce including artisan bread and meats from a local butcher. Lovers of good food and local beers will find a range of pubs and restaurants within easy walking distance. Situated on Suffolk's Heritage Coast, with endless opportunities for walking, cycling, bird watching and painting, home to RSPBs flagship reserve, Minsmere. You can also explore lovely characterful villages like Walberswick and Dunwich, where you can enjoy the sand dunes, go crabbing and have a picnic or pub lunch by an open fire.

Bridget's Cottage has all you need for a lovely holiday by the sea and is ideal for families, friends and couples to enjoy

About Judy Cullen-Moore

Some friends invited us to stay with them in their cottage in Reydon back in 2005. We fell in love with the area and visited as often as possible. We dreamt of having our own place here. When my mum sadly died two years ago we were able to use her legacy to realise our dream. The cottage is named after her. We've enjoyed renovating it, adding our stamp and making it as cosy and homely as possible. It gives us the perfect chance to do what we love best: walking, cycling, sitting by log fires in lovely pubs or settling in for the evening in front of our woodburner with friends and family. We hope you enjoy coming here as much as we do.

Judy Cullen-Moore purchased this cottage in 2013

What makes this cottage unique

We love the fact that we can pop to the shop when we need things without having to plan in advance or can send our son when we're cooking and find we're short of something vital. We love eating al-fresco in our secluded and sunny garden. Even though you can't see the sea you know it's not far when you spot the top of the lighthouse from the front bedroom.

Beautiful character cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is well equipped. Really nicely decorated and clean. The well stocked shop opposite is useful.

It is a walk to a lovely town and beach. There are so many nice shops and restaurants in southwold it's a lovely place for a holiday.

Judy was also great to liaise with.

We had a lovely time! Thank you.

Well equipped home from home

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week at Bridgets Cottage. The house is only a 10 min walk from Southwold Pier so it was easy to get into town or to the beach. Judy really has thought of everything, and we couldn't have asked for a more well equipped and homely place to stay. We have 2 young children so it was really helpful to have the use of a high chair, bunk beds and children's books. Also a very respectable DVD collection for my husband and I in the evenings! Thanks for a fab week :-)

Lovely, cosy cottage, superb location, beautifully decorated and stocked with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

We've just enjoyed a wonderful week in this delightful cottage in Southwold. The location couldn't be beaten with lovely country walks on the doorstep, a shop that seems to sell everything right opposite and a short stroll to the town and sea. The cottage itself is beautifully decorated and the owner has thought of everything - it's a real home from home! We'd live here permanently if we could!

The property is lovely, clean, tidy and with everything you need for a stay of any length.

  • 5 of 5

The owner Trudy is very communiactive and accommodating, we arrived in Southwold early and she kindly let us know the property had already been cleaned and we could have access early (although appreciate this would not be the case for all visits). The property is lovely with everything you will need with a small shop across the road for ad hoc necessities with the town centre a short walk away. The town and beach itself are beautiful, you would be hard pushed to beat and for me one of the best places I have stayed, the mini heat wave this weekend just topped it off.

Would definitely recommend the cottage and the area.

Coast/Beach:

Around 10-15 minutes walk to North Beach and Southwold's traditional pier via a variety of routes including a scenic footpath over the marshes along side Buss Creek. The promenade, with its picturesque beach huts and cafes, stretches all the way to Southwold's sand dunes. Beyond the dunes is the working harbour where you can buy fresh fish from one of the fish huts or go crabbing. There are boat trips along the coast and a little ferry across to Walberswick.

Travel:

Southwold is 10 minutes off the A12. If coming by rail the nearest station is Darsham, a 15 minutes taxi ride. There is a regular train service to Darsham via Ipswich from London Liverpool Street. Alternatively, you can come to Halesworth, where there is a bus service to Southwold.

Distances:

Norwich is just under an hour away. Aldeburgh and Snape Maltings Concert Hall 35 minutes drive. Orford 45 minutes drive. Walberswick 5 miles by road, 3 miles walk/cycle over the footbridge at Southwold Harbour. Given the variety of footpaths you can easily get to a lots of lovely coastal and rural locations on foot or by bike.

Further Details:

There's an excellent village shop opposite the cottage where you can buy everything you need from butcher's meat to wine and woolly hats! In the unlikely event that you can't find what you need at Barbrookes , there are 2 supermarkets in town and many independent shops, not to mention the cafes, pubs, delis and restaurants if you don't feel like cooking! There's also a traditional fish and chip shop and an Indian take away.

Apart from walking, cycling, swimming in the sea and exploring the stunning coastline, there are many other things to do in Southwold and the local area. There are tennis courts in Southwold and the recreation ground in Reydon (with childrens play equipment and exercise bikes). A little further afield, there is the Lido outdoor pool in Beccles, an indoor pool (with flume) in Bungay and Afica Live at Kessingland. You can also visit places of historical interest such as Sutton Hoo and Framlingham Castle.

Music lovers can enjoy live music at times during the summer on South Green, folk music in the Harbour Inn or the Latitude Festival (in July).

There is also an excellent Summer Theatre in Southwold.
