"Beautiful cottage, excellent location."

We stayed in the Lighthouse Cottage for New Year. It is a lovely cottage, really well equipped with everything you need and decorated beautifully throughout. We had sociable meals in the kitchen/ diner and lit the fire every evening in the cosy living room. Perfect!
The location is ideal - we parked our car on arrival and didn't use it again until we left a week later.

"Lovely warm, well equipped house in a great location."

LIghthouse Keepers Cottage is tucked away behind the lighthouse in the heart of Southwold. You can see the sea from several rooms and reach the beach and saunter to the shops in minutes. There is only the lighthouse between you and the pub and Adnams brewery and store across the road. This is a very well equipped property truly in the heart of one of Britain's best holiday locations. We all loved it.
