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. Bridget's Cottage is ideal for families and couples to enjoy

About Judy Cullen-Moore

Some very good 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 playing board games 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.

Every convenience here in this very clean and well-kept property. We enjoyed our long weekend in Reydon, with our two dogs. Lovely walks and, fortunately, lovely weather!

Lovely cozy and clean. Close to everything you need but quietly tucked away so you can relax

  • 5 of 5

We love Southwold (not our first visit but our first stay in Southwold) We arrived at Bridget's Cottage and felt immediately at home. During our stay we walked from the cottage down to the beach and then down to the harbour for fish and chips before heading back to walk off the calories !! Thoroughly enjoyable weekend with best friends. Thanks Judy xx

Very impressed indeed. Perfect location and fantastic property

lovely cotttage with everything you need.

I'm a keen cook and the kitchen was very well equipped to cook the various fish we bought in the harbour. Very easy access for loads of walks and only 10 min walk to southwold high street. Judy was super helpful with the booking logistics and kept in touch up to our arrival.

Relaxation at its finest.

Lovely clean and pretty cottage

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay - great location a little outside of southwold proper, but a lovely walk through the marshes to get to the beach. Cottage was perfect for our needs with a 3yo and dog. Perfect
