The Bridge House at Southwold

Interiors are simply stylish; primarily crisp clean white backgrounds with pops of colour added in soft furnishings and accessories. Doors to the garden from the living area and kitchen make this a great holiday home for families in the summer months, and the wood burner adds a cosy touch in the winter.

Secure parking for two cars in such a prime location in this seaside town is a huge asset!

Ground floor
The main entrance to The Bridge House is off the drive, opening directly into a welcoming hallway with access to the double and shower room, stairs rising to the first floor and opening to the living area and kitchen ahead of you. The original five finger oak parquet with a light stain runs through the majority of the ground floor.

Living Room
Effectively open plan with entrance off the entrance hall into this stylish living space, and opening into the kitchen/dining room. Great at any time of the year, this room has an open fire for cosy evenings and sliding doors to the garden for warmer weather. Two deep sofas invite you to relax in front of the wall mounted TV and there are a couple of extra chairs.

Kitchen/Dining Room
The modern kitchen opens off the living room with doors to the utility room and garden. The dining table has six chairs with an extra couple of folding chairs in the garage for extra guests. Units wrap around two walls with integrated dishwasher, under counter fridge and impressive Cuisinemaster (Leisure) stove with five rings, two ovens and a separate grill. There’s a coffee machine and a charcoal BBQ.

Utility Room
Useful space with additional storage in a fridge/freezer (four shelves and veggie boxes in the fridge and three drawers in the freezer), plus a washing machine and dryer.

Ground Floor Bedroom
Bright bedroom furnished with a small double bed (4ft, hence +1 on the description), bedside drawers and a unit with hanging space.

Shower Room
With shower cubicle, wash basin, WC, heated towel rail and natural light.

First Floor
Effectively the ground floor from the front where you can cross the bridge from Pier Avenue and enter the hallway. Two bedrooms to your right, bathroom and toilet ahead of you and wide stairs descending to the lower ground floor. Carpet runs through, other than bathroom and toilet with vinyl flooring.

Front Bedroom
Super sunny bedroom with windows, allowing the light to stream in on three sides (with blackout blinds so you can enjoy a good nights sleep!). The zip and link super king size bed allows you to choose twin or double configuration with an additional pull out bed (2’6” x 5’9”) for a child if needed. There’s ample storage in the wardrobe with a chest of drawers there too as well as bedside tables.

Garden Bedroom
Sitting quietly at the back, another bright bedroom with double bed, bedside drawers and wardrobe with both hanging and drawer space.

Light and airy with natural light through the frosted glass window. The bath has a hand shower and there’s a washbasin and towel rail over the radiator.

This iconic house has an entrance off Marlborough Road at the back with gates opening into the drive and parking for three cars.

The fully enclosed garden wraps around the house on the lower ground floor with a lawn at the front under the bridge with bank rising to Pier Avenue and a paved area furnished with table for 6/8 with parasol and 12 chairs. You’re spoilt for choice at this holiday house, with a bistro table and chairs on the ‘upper deck’ by the bridge where you can catch the morning sun and another table and chairs sitting on the lawn where you can enjoy the evening sun.

This detached self-catering holiday cottage in Southwold is located in a prime position on Pier Avenue, a short walk from the town's popular shops, cafes and delis.

The sandy beach at Southwold at the bottom of Pier Avenue 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, pets or unaccompanied teenagers.
