About this property

The delightful and beautifully restored Victorian Southwold Cottage is located in a quiet spot in the heart of the trendy Suffolk town of Southwold. With spacious accommodation for six plus a dog, this wonderful holiday home is a fabulous base.

The ever popular Southwold is fantastic with charming independent shops, cosy restaurants and pubs and a wonderful beach featuring colourful beach huts. Southwold is one of Suffolk’s most picturesque seaside towns, and it is easy to see why Southwold Cottage is booked so frequently.

The cottage was recently refurbished to a very high standard. It is stylish, superbly comfortable and offers super comfy furnishings, a gourmet kitchen, a cosy wood-burning stove and three spectacular bedrooms. Much attention has been given to the detail, and the colour palettes are wonderful. The living area is open plan in design with a stylish and comfortable lounge around the wood burner, an elegant dining table and a top-notch kitchen. The DeVol kitchen cabinets are painted a cool olive colour, and the kitchen is complete with a Miele range cooker, other Miele appliances, a Belfast sink and, of course, a Nespresso coffee machine. Sparkling white countertops and striking bronze taps complete the picture giving you no excuse not to come up with a delicious gourmet meal. Guests can sit at the quality dining table with a glass of wine, keeping the chef company!

All three bedrooms are upstairs in various muted shades of blue. You can choose been the Cornish, azure or eggshell blue panelled rooms, all of which offer a warm and elegant ambience. All of the bedrooms are illuminated with natural Suffolk light from the big windows. The master bedroom features a superb kingsize bed and a beautiful ensuite shower room. The other bedrooms offer double beds and share the outstanding family bathroom with its fabulous roll-top bath and shower. It is decorated in the same way as the ensuite shower room.

Outside the door, you can venture on foot to enjoy the delights of Southwold and the bracing coast where you will find the attractive, bustling fishing harbour and the iconic pier. What joy!

Southwold Cottage is found in a quiet little corner of the very scenic town of Southwold. There are few seaside towns quite so quintessentially British as Southwold. With its fine sandy beach and beach hut lined promenade, its refurbished pier and its renowned lighthouse, the town offer a wonderful holiday environment and a welcoming atmosphere.

Southwold lies between Aldeburgh and Lowestoft on the Suffolk Heritage Coast. It is almost an island, being bounded by the North Sea to the East, by the River Blyth and Southwold Harbour to the South West and Buss Creek to the North. There is only one road in and out of the town.

The town is home to the famous Adnams Brewery, a previous winner of The Good Pub Guide’s Brewery of the Year. The brewing rooms are set just behind the High Street adjacent to the town’s iconic lighthouse. You can take a brewery tour throughout the year and can sample the Adnams beers everywhere.

The Southwold Pier is another town focal point. The pier is lined with shops, eateries and amusements. It is a very popular place to be! The working lighthouse is a coastal mark where you can take a tour. It is open subject to weather conditions and is very interesting.

You can take some lovely walks straight from Southwold Cottage. A delightful walk is to cross the River Blyth by foot ferry to Walberswick, crossing back by the footbridge and exploring the trackbed of the old Southwold Railway. This is a gorgeous area where you can enjoy fresh air, good food and wonderful hospitality.

Lowestoft is another fabulous seaside town with much entertainment including the wonderful Somerleyton Hall and Gardens, the East Anglia Transport Museum, Africa Alive, Sparrow’s Nest and Gardens, the Marina Theatre and various other museums.

Aldeburgh is a wonderful escape and is world-renowned thanks to its connection with Benjamin Britten, the founder of the Aldeburgh Festival which takes place every June. It is very pretty with pastel-coloured 19th-century homes lining the promenade and a wonderful pebble beach with fisherman’s huts selling the local daily catch.

    Great location. Lovely luxury property

  • Mrs B

    A delightful holiday cottage with excellent location and a luxury feel. Not for those who are uncomfortable around technology as the house is fitted with a lot of smart technology. The quality of bedding, kitchen electricals etc. is all very high-end. Like staying in a 5 start hotel in the heart of Southwold and a warm and snuggly base for a winter break.
