This self catering holiday cottage in Southwold is close to everything - beach, harbour and the fashionable town centre with its popular shops, cafes and delis.

The sandy beach at Southwold is adorned with a string of colourful beach huts that lead along to Southwold Pier at one end and towards Southwold Harbour at the other end the town boasts several excellent pubs and restaurants as well as a range of independent shops and galleries.

There is a pretty walk through the harbour and over a footbridge to the picture-postcard village of Walberswick, home to two good pubs (The Anchor and The Bell) and a long sandy beach. Fresh fish can be bought from the fish huts along the harbour. Southwold is home to the Adnams Brewery and the town's excellent pubs include one of our personal favourites, The Lord Nelson where you can try a range of Adnams bitters.
Sorry, no smoking or unaccompanied teenagers are permitted at this property.

A well-behaved dog is welcome downstairs. If you wish to bring a dog it must be mentioned at the time of booking on the booking form and is subject to our conditions of booking.

Children are welcome and the fourth bedroom is great for young guests; the ladder is firmly attached to the wall but it is steep and extreme care must be taken using it and when spending time in the 'den' at the top.

The Aga oven is not switched on during May to September, as it throws off too much heat during the summer period.

Once you have filled out the online booking form, you will be given the option to pay by credit or debit card, or by BACs transfer. A 25% deposit is requested at the time of your booking to secure your booking. The balance and a returnable good housekeeping deposit are due six weeks before your holiday commences.
