The original lounge has a flat-screen 30" TV, gas fire, comfortable 3-seater settee, coffee table, book case and two armchairs. The sun lounge (part of the extension) has large windows on two sides, which make it a lovely bright place both winter and summer to relax in and enjoy the views. The sun lounge is furnished with two two-seater settees, a small book case and a large doll's house for children to play with.
Upstairs, there is a bathroom with a bath and electric shower. The twin bedroom at the rear of the house contains a pine wardrobe, pine chest of drawers and blackout curtains to help any little ones get off to sleep. The front bedroom contains a double bed in which you will wake up to a view across the sea. A great place for breakfast in bed! It has a small built-in wardrobe, set of drawers, bedside cabinets and black-out curtains.The single bedroom at the front of the house (with sea view) has a built-in wardrobe at the foot of the bed and a bedside cabinet.
The house is carpeted upstairs (except for the bathroom) with wood-effect flooring downstairs.

The East Anglia region
Pakefield is a small village located on the coast of Suffolk, which is one of the six counties which make up the area of East Anglia. East Anglia has a diverse mixture of vibrant cities, individual towns and villages, beautiful countryside and idyllic seaside. The region has preserved much of its unspoilt character, rural landscape, architecture and traditions.
Suffolk is characterized by its large skies and small villages of pastel coloured houses nestling amongst large swathes of agricultural, forest and heathland. The area is amongst the driest in the UK.
The majority of the coast south of Pakefield is undeveloped and forms the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Pakefield is at the northern end of the Suffolk Coast Path.
Pakefield is a small, peaceful village, just south of the larger town of Lowestoft, with its golden sandy beaches. The two places are joined by a sea front esplanade, lined with beach huts, which makes for a pleasant stroll. The beach towards Kessingland has a very different atmosphere, as no houses line the wild cliffs.
When one is not on the beach, the area has plenty of other things on offer for all ages. Taking a trip to Norwich by train is an experience in itself as the train route takes you through idyllic unspoilt countryside. There are picturesque villages and towns to explore. Nearby 'Africa Alive' wildlife park (3 miles) and 'Pleasurewood Hills' theme park (5 miles) are two of Suffolk's top rated attractions. Crabbing is a popular pastime at the harbour mouth of the picturesque villages of Walberswick and Southwold. During the summer holidays, Southwold also has a 'maize maze' with play area, which makes for a great outing. Dunwich Heath (National Trust) is a good place for walking, with trails for children and even free geocaching on offer. Slightly further afield, there is Fritton Lake Adventure park, which offers land and water based adventurous and sporting activities, Bewilderwood and Pettits Animal Adventure Park, Somerleyton Hall, and the Oasis Camel Centre. To entertain the children at times of wet weather, there are two indoor play centres locally, and a roller skating centre on the pier. Oulton Broad offers excellent facilities for boat trips on the Norfolk Broads (2 miles).
For bird watchers, there are many interesting places, such as Westleton Heath, Walberswick, Sizewell Belts, Walberswick Minsmere, Dunwhich Heath, Blyth Estuary, Benacre Broad. Because of the variety of landscapes (shingle beaches, inter-tidal mud flats, grazing and coastal marshes, heathland and woodland) one can expect a huge variety of different birds with over three hundred species in the area's checklist, amongst which are the avocet, bearded tit, bittern, and marsh harriers.
