Saxon House, a substantial Edwardian house, is one of Southwold's premier properties and is situated only yards from the beach and Southwold's unique Art Deco pier.
This refurbished and superbly equipped house has spacious reception rooms for relaxing and entertaining, making it perfect for a large family holiday or get together with friends. The spacious drawing room and large reception sitting room both have Sky TV with video/DVD players. There is a study/playroom for the children and a large dining room with French doors leading out onto the raised veranda with table and chairs overlooking the garden. All of the bedrooms have been tastefully decorated and furnished, and all have either en-suite facilities or adjoining bathrooms. Wi-fi is installed for guests use. There are two convenient ground floor bedrooms, each with an en-suite shower room. The garden is enclosed and has tables and seating on the lawn as well as a barbecue, parasols and a Wendy house.
Famous for its pier, beach huts and working lighthouse, Southwold, a charming north Suffolk seaside town on the Suffolk Heritage Coast, has a delightful high street with a range of traditional shops, galleries, restaurants and pubs selling the locally brewed Adnams Ale. Other highlights include Adnams Brewery, the Southwold summer theatre and the harbour. A trip across the River Blyth by foot ferry to explore the picturesque village of Walberswick, returning by the footbridge, makes for a pleasant day trip.
For an alternative day out, Aldeburgh makes for an interesting visit. Although best known for its annual arts festival (the brainchild of Benjamin Britten, which takes place in June and November), many other events are held throughout the year including the Easter Music Festival and the Proms season in August. A little further inland lies Framlingham and Orford, both with castles and picturesque villages. Also Thorpeness Mere and boating lake, the RSPB nature reserve at Minsmere and a just little further south Woodbridge, a beautiful historic market town situated on the River Deben, are all worth a visit.
For golfers there are numerous excellent courses in the area, including Southwold. The town also offers tennis courts and sailing facilities. Walking enthusiasts can enjoy a lovely stroll along the beach or beach path, or sample Dunwich Heritage coastal walk, a 3½-mile circular walk over the top of the ever disappearing cliffs, past the old monastery and through country lanes.
