"Great location, lots of space"
The house was a great location, less than ten minutes walk from the beach down the main street, meaning you could pass the shops, pick up whatever you needed for the day en route to the beach.For a th… More

"Great house in the perfect location!"
This is a good sized house, with 3 large (double) bedrooms, a fantastic dining space and a nice living room. It's a fabulous location, just a minute or so walk from the high street one way, and just behind the church on the same street you are straight onto the common: it couldn't be more central!
It's a maximum of 10 minutes from the beachfront, and if you follow the road down the side of the water tower you'll reach the harbour (and the Harbour Inn!) in about 15 mins walking. It's very easy to explore Southwold and the surrounding areas from this property.
This property has pretty much everything you could need for a holiday in Southwold: the street it's on is pretty quiet and the property allows a well behaved dog. There is a small backyard with a gas BBQ supplied, the only point to make on this area is that it is quite walled in so while its nice to sit in, it isn't a sun-trap!
One thing the property could do with is a few more serving dishes/platters and we would have appreciated a few ice cube trays too as all the shops had sold out of ice cubes in the heat! Other than that the only downside is 1 bathroom for so many adults, although there is a wc downstairs.
If eating out do try Coasters on the high street near Tesco Express (but book as it is very popular!) and you must also discover the gorgeous beer garden behind Sutherland House.
Finally, a mention to the owner who was incredibly pleasant and helpful to deal with throughout, these things really do make a difference!
We will undoubtedly return to Southwold soon and I will definitely try to book this property again.

"We didn't want to leave..."
Fantastic property in an excellent location. The house looks good in the pictures on the internet but in reality it's even better. We (party of 7 adults) stayed for the first weekend in July an… More

"Very spacious house in an excellent position."
This was a very spacious house in a fantastic position almost on the high street but backing onto the common via a short path. The beach is 5 minutes away. The house had an elegant feeling about it with a large dining room, especially good for families and a table in the kitchen to eat breakfast. A small courtyard with a bar-b-que if the weather is nice. Our dog was very good and plenty of room to put our cage up for her to sleep in. I would definitely go back to this property and it would be lovely for my grandchildren.

"Spacious house in a great location"
We (four adults and one child) stayed for a weekend in May and really enjoyed our time in Southwold. The house is well equipped, very spacious and perfectly located at the end of the High Street. It's just a short walk to the beach, we would also recommend walking further along the beach to the harbour and Walberswick. The owner Charlotte was very responsive and straightforward to deal with. We would definitely return.

"Perfect Family Cottage"
The Perfect Family Seaside Cottage
If you're looking for the perfect 'holiday cottage' in the most idyllic and unspoilt 'middle England' seaside town…then look no further.
As soon as we, two families (4 adults 5 kids) walked in we felt at home and had a wonderful stay here in end of May 2013. Plenty of space for the kids to explore and run around, allowing the grown ups time alone.
I really don't think the write up or the photos on the site do the cottage justice… even the map on the site at the time of writing shows the cottage is out of the village, when it's just off the high street.
The family bathroom upstairs and the loo downstairs have both been replaced to a fairly high standard and thankfully with a real over the bath shower (not nasty slow electric thing).
The Master Bedroom is quite elegant with lots of room and a king-sized bed. The lounge is much nicer than looks in the photos. However, our favourite room has to be the dinning room, with its grand table, which seated 9 with ease, and a polka dot plastic cover so we didn't have to worry about the children making a mess.
Although there is no garden, (there is a small yard with patio table, chairs and a gas BBQ, which is fine). BUT who needs a garden when you have a beautiful traditional High Street (with a Costa if you miss the 21st century), an amazing seafront with the famous coloured beach huts and the splendid Southwold Pier …all in your back garden.
Also in 'your back garden' (or just around the corner) is the wonderful “Adnams Cellar & Kitchen Stores” which is well worth a visiting as they do far more than just beer. http://cellarandkitchen.adnams.co.uk/page/our-stores
As Southwold is the home of the Adnams brewery – every pub has great beer and my excuse to visit them was FREE WiFi. (We also had Free Wifi outside Costa when they where closed).
This was all topped off by a very a very friendly owner Charlotte. Although we've never met, she answered all my questions by both text and email, and it was like texting a friend. (Also there maybe a deal to be done too).
Walk to Walberswick Beach
From the front door turn left and follow the path behind the Church. Walk across the common and golf course and head to the Harbour Inn (the right hand side right on buildings). Walk through the Blackshore harbour (extremely fresh and smoked fish and best fish and chips in Southwold at Mrs T's). Enjoy the pace of being hand rowed ferry across the River Blyth (90p each) to Walberswick. Head behind the first buildings you'll find a lovely sandy beach and sand dunes. The children loved the walk (about 2 miles each way) over little foot bridges and had an amazing good old fashioned day on the beach (no amusement's) and a little crabbing on the Walberswick bridge… a day full of memories to last a lifetime.
