About Us

Welcome to So Southwold and to our special part of Suffolk.  We consider ourselves very fortunate to be living and working here, and we would like to share with you our wonderful town and all it has to offer.  Southwold is the epitome of the perfect seaside holiday destination and when you have visited once, we are sure you will want to return time and again.

There can’t be many places in the country where you can arrive, park your car and, should you wish, spend an entire week in one place.  Apart from the expanse of sandy beach with its iconic beach huts, there is a traditional pier with a twist, a lighthouse to climb, an Electric Picture Palace, the Summer Theatre and numerous walks, including one along the Blyth Estuary to nearby Walberswick where many celebrities have their second homes.  Mix that in with a good range of high-quality shops, restaurants and tea rooms and you will see there is plenty to do for all the family.  

Unlike many other seaside resorts, Southwold isn't just a fantastic summer destination.  It is perfect for an out of season holiday or short break, with all the main attractions open for business whatever the time of year.

As our website shows we have a wide selection of holiday cottages and apartments to suit all budgets in Southwold and the villages of Walberswick and Reydon, many with sea views, so do take a look and we hope you will decide to come and stay with us very soon.  Also, please remember we want you to feel our passion for Southwold and we know our properties inside-out, so do not hesitate to give us a call if you would like some advice before you book.
