About the Owner

I was very lucky to have spent many idyllic and unforgettable family childhood holidays in Southwold. We took our own children camping here about 10 years ago and we knew instantly it was a place we wanted to bring them back to time and time again as well as bringing our own parents here to stay.

With Sunnyside we wanted to create a cosy base from which family, friends and visitors could enjoy and explore the beautiful beaches and town and take happy memories of the area away with them. We like beach walks, cycling, cosy pub lunches and picnics by the sea, building sand castles and crabbing and then curling up in front of our open fire or having a BBQ in the evening sun whilst our kids play in the garden. We hope that you'll enjoy Southwold and Sunnyside as much as we do :-)

Wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

The house was well equipped in a great location with a footpath directly to the beach from the driveway. The enclosed garden was great for our pooch and we had great weather making full use of the BBQ. An easy walk to Southwold, with good shops and pubs and fab butchers. We did the brewery and distillery tour at Adnams which was interesting, especially the tasting. Sutton Hoo is worth a visit, extraordinary. Southwold is very pretty but very busy which was why it was great to leave the car and stroll in! One of the most relaxing holidays we have had. Would recommend.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review! We've drunk many Adnams' pints in the Nelson, Harbour Inn and The Bell but never done the tour. Great recommendation. Hope you're able to stay at Sunnyside again soon. Elizabeth

Fantastic cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastically cosy well equipped cottage. Plenty of parking, great garden. Footpath directly next to Sunnyside, which takes you to the pier end of Southwold, with a magnificent sandy beach for dogs ( and humans!) to run and swim. A five minutes cycle to Southwold.

Beautiful Sunnyside

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay at Sunnyside , the cottage has

everything you could possibly need and so stylish, the gardens wrap around the property and South facing so always a sunny spot . We walked miles with our little dog , the footpath starts at the end of the driveway! Straight to the beach. We love Southwold and the harbour for fresh seafood and cosy

lunches at the Harbour Inn. We discovered Walberswick on the tiny ferry this time, gorgeous place . All in all one of the best holiday retreats we have stayed in in the area x*

Second Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit was just as good as the first and hopefully there will be a third. This well-appointed Cottage is in a superb position and has everything you need. The owners could not be more obliging or helpful. Southwold Harbour is a nice walk away and Mrs T's Fish & Chips to die for when you get there.

Owner's Response: Really pleased that Sunnyside was as good as the first time you stayed there! Looking forward to welcoming you back again soon and agree with you about Mrs T's Fish and Chips! Many thanks. Elizabeth

Location

From the Owner

We love being a stone's throw away (10 minute walk) from Southwold's shops, pubs and beaches whilst also benefiting from a quieter location and a feeling of space away from the crowds. As a former Adnam's gardener's cottage, we really appreciate the historical connection of Sunnyside with Southwold's famous local beer.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Stanstead at 83 Miles Nearest Barpub : Blyth Hotel at 0.5 Miles Nearest Ferry : Harwich at 58 Miles Nearest Golf : Southwold Golf Club at 0.75 Miles Nearest Train : Darsham at 8.5 Miles Nearest Motorway : A12 at 2 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Blyth Hotel at 0.5 Miles Nearest Beach : North Beach via footpath at the end of the drive at 0.75 Miles Car: not necessary

Coast/Beach:

The beach is a 10-15 minute walk away, via a number of scenic routes. The Suffolk Coastal Footpath at the end of Sunnyside’s drive, takes you to North Beach, the Pier and promenade, via the marshes giving a panoramic view of Southwold’s colourful beach huts. Southwold Pier Beach (Blue Flag status May 2014) sweeps around into picturesque sand dunes and then to the working Harbour. Here there are fresh fish to buy, coastal boat trips, a seasonal foot ferry to Walberswick and crabbing sites.

Travel:

Southwold is 10 minutes from the A12. Darsham the nearest train station (services from London Liverpool Street via Ipswich) is a 15 minute drive away and serviced by Southwold taxis or there is a bus service from Halesworth Station. Once in Southwold, a car is not essential as there are many beautiful places to visit within walking distance or by bike.

Distances:

Southwold is a 10 minute walk away. Walberswick is 5 miles by road or a 3 mile walk or cycle via the Harbour footbridge. Dunwich Heath & Minsmere RSPB reserve 20 minutes drive. Aldeburgh and Snape Maltings Concert Hall are 35 minutes drive. Sutton Hoo near Woodbridge and Orford are 45 minutes drive. Norwich and Ipswich are under an hour away.

Further Details:

The village shop (Barbrooks) sells a wide range of goods (locally produced bread, locally sourced meats, fresh fruit and vegetables, a wide range of groceries, wine, beer and newspapers). Southwold has 2 supermarkets as well as a fantastic range of independent food shops, delis and bakeries selling artisan bread. There are many fantastic restaurants and cafes or try the super fish and chips. Adnams have numerous pubs selling their famous locally produced beer. We would recommend The Harbour, The Bell in Walberswick and The Nelson ('The Nelly') in Southwold! There are several cash points in the town if needed.

Southwold has so much to do! Swimming and surfing in the sea, crabbing, painting, cycling along the many bridleways, exploring the nature reserves, golf, tennis and skate park as well as beautiful coastal or inland walks. The boutique and antique shops and the market (Monday and Thursday) make Southwold town a buzzing place to be.

The summer Maize Maze on the main road into Southwold will delight children as will the nearby Africa Alive safari park Kessingland, the outdoor Lido pool in Beccles, the indoor pool at Bungay with a flume and Bewilderwood (The Curious Treehouse Adventure) near Norwich which we can highly recommend.

Beccles the 'Southern Gateway to the Norfolk Broads' is about 20 minutes drive away. There are cinemas in Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth as well as the Southwold Electric Picture Palace showing seasonal art house films.

The area is steeped in history including such attractions as Sutton Hoo (National Trust), Framlingham and Orford Castles (English Heritage). Southwold holds an annual Literature Festival (November) and hosts an annual summer theatre. The Latitude Festival (family friendly, music, comedy, performance art, literature, debate) is held at nearby Henham Park each July. The Aldeburgh Music Festival is held in June at Snape Maltings.

Facilities

From the Owner

Sunnyside's drive leads directly out onto a Suffolk Coastal Footpath which in 10 minutes, takes you along side the marshes to North Beach and the famous colourful Southwold beach huts and traditional Pier. It's 2 minutes to the friendly village shop, selling locally sourced vegetables, meat and freshly baked speciality bread. Sunnyside has a large garden and lots of parking on our gated driveway. The large south facing garden allows children to wind down and play with ample space, after a hard day at the beach, whilst we BBQ and relax in the evening sun. Sunnyside has its own private gated drive, allowing plenty of space for friends and family to park.
