Guestbook comments from the owner

"If you’re looking for the perfect ‘holiday cottage’ in Southwold then look no further As soon as we,two families (4 adults 5 kids) walked in we felt at home and had a wonderful stay here at end of May 2013. Plenty of space for the kids to explore and run around, allowing the grown ups time alone.The family bathroom upstairs and the loo downstairs have both been replaced to a fairly high standard and thankfully with a real over the bath shower (not nasty slow electric thing). The Master Bedroom is quite elegant with lots of room and a king-sized bed.The lounge is much nicer than looks in the photos.However, our favourite room has to be the dinning room,with its grand table,which seated 9 with ease, and a polka dot plastic cover so we didn’t have to worry about the children making a mess.This was all topped off by a very friendly owner Charlotte.Your pictures and the write up on the web simply doesn't do the house justice".

Great position to explore Southwold from, quiet location and had all the basics you need

  • 5 of 5

Stayed with a friends family, 4 adults +5 kids in total, loads of space, all the basics you need, great location, short walk to anywhere in Southwold, stones throw to the brewery tour, what more could you want.

Recommend it especially for large groups

Stayed weekend of 25-26th march 2017

very spacious accomadation

  • 4 of 5

Large old house at end of high street near all amenities. No sea view and difficult car parking...the latter being typical for all of Southwold unless the property has a dedicated parking space. Have stayed here many times before and probably will stay many more times.

Birthday celebration

  • 4 of 5

Five friends spent a fabulous weekend in Southwold. The house was lovely, very roomy and had everything we needed to enjoy our weekend. I would recommend this house for friends and family. It is in a great location to enjoy the shops, beach, river, restaurants, all the delights of Southwold. We will definitely be back.

Great location, big place but...

  • 3 of 5

In need of an update of facilities and decor. Quite basic, internet is coming, 1 small tv. If you're after walks and somewhere to rest your head of a night this is a good place for space and location. If you have a family and want time relaxing after a walk you'll need to bring life with you as there are the basic catered for.

Owner's Response: We are not sure what you mean by “you’ll need to bring life with you as there are the basic catered for" as our spacious house is in the centre of Southwold, 1 minute walk from the High Street with it’s shops, restaurants and pubs, 5 minutes to the beach and 5 minutes to tennis courts and the golf club. There is a good sized flat screen TV with DVD player, recently installed free unlimited wifi and a CD player. There are also a number of family board games etc for guests to use. One reviewer states that there is "loads of space, all the basics you need, great location, short walk to anywhere in Southwold, stones throw to the brewery tour, what more could you want. Recommend it especially for large groups." In relation to the comments about the basic decor, once again, this is not consistent with the facts as borne out by the other reviews that we have received. For example "The Master Bedroom is quite elegant with lots of room and a king-sized bed.The lounge is much nicer than looks in the photos. However, our favourite room has to be the dining room, with it's grand table, which seated 9 with ease, and a polka dot plastic cover so we didn’t have to worry about the children making a mess.” Another reviewer states that "The house has generous rooms and it felt spacious, it has a great dining room and fantastic table which was great for Christmas Dinner and we are going back next Christmas!!"

Lovely and spacious great location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a really great house, spacious, clean and tidy. Had a great time with friends and the location was perfect. Only two tiny things...the double beds were quite hard..but we still slept on them! And the upstairs shower was not the greatest, but the downstairs power shower was amazing. Will definitely come and stay again...already planning g next year! Thank you!

GREAT HOUSE GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5

The location of the house is great nearly on the high street, which has interesting shops, wonderful restaurants and cafés. The famous Electric Cinema is 100 yards away unfortunately it was fully booked during our stay.

The house has generous rooms and it felt spacious, it has a great dining room and fantastic table which was great for Christmas Dinner, i the owner was great at communicating and we are going back next Christmas !!

Location

Special interest holidays:

Other famous landmarks in the town include:

Southwold Lighthouse

Southwold Pier

Adnams Brewery

The Electric Picture Palace Cinema

St Edmunds Church

Museums and Amber Museum

Coast/Beach:

Southwold is situated in the heart of the Suffolk coast and is an area of outstanding natural beauty. With its beautiful sandy beach, the town is famous for its brightly coloured beach huts which stretch along the shore.

Travel:

Because of the central location of the house, everything is within walking distance and you will only need a car if you choose to explore other areas within Suffolk.

Further Details:

Walking; close to the Cottage there are many pretty walks including: towards the River Blyth and to Walberswick or across the marshes/heath.

Coastal Voyager; take an exhilarating ride along the coast on the Coastal Voyager.

Pubs & Restaurants; visit any of the pubs and restaurants close by and sample some of the local ales brewed at the Adnams Brewery.

Golf; play golf at the 9 hole course which is a short walk from the Cottage, or any of the challenging 18 hole courses at Thorpeness, Aldeburgh or Woodbridge.

The cottage is close to an excellent range of small shops including: bakery, tea shop, various art galleries, greengrocers, family butcher, delicatessen, and the Adnams Cellar and Kitchen store.

The house is also a short walk away from several restaurants and pubs, the Electric Picture Palace cinema, and golf course. There is also easy access to the common and a nearby footpath takes you down to the harbour with a foot ferry to Walberswick (summer only).
