We have properties suitable for couples getting away, families looking for a luxury family holiday and large groups of friends desiring a substantial Southwold home.

Staying with us

Waking up in one of our luxury self-catering cottages is special. An overwhelming sense of relaxation is bound to strike you as you appreciate the unique and very special seaside town of Southwold. Immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of the bustling Victorian high street with a wide range of independent retail shops, a delicious variety of traditional, artisan bakeries and delicatessens and some of the county’s finest restaurants and eateries. Explore the eclectic mix of antique sellers and visit some of the town’s famous Adnams pubs with their traditional wooden interiors and enviable positions dotted around the town. 

The golden sands of Southwold beach are broken only by the dramatic and attractive traditional seaside pier. Restored recently this fantastic attraction hosts some unusual and wonderful entertainment. Stand at the very end and look back to the special vista of Southwold with its pastel coloured beach huts and large Victorian houses.

Walk to the south end of the beach and watch the promenade disappear into the sand as the dunes towards Walberswick appear in front of you. This dreamy seaside village is full of nostalgia and charm and with a dune-backed beach surrounded by acres of protected heathland as well as a picture-postcard village green, Southwold's peaceful neighbour provides the perfect, restful retreat.

Your time is precious and your holiday should be relaxing, inspiring and special. At So Southwold we understand that helping you enjoy your time away is the most important thing we can do.
