Southwold isn’t just a place for families – it’s a rather romantic destination for couples too! With so much to see and do you can really have a fabulous holiday with your loved one. And what better time of year to escape to your own little paradise than the summer holidays! With plenty of availability for two, we’re sure we have something to suit all couples.


Couples can enjoy a spot of retail therapy right on their doorstep when staying at Southwold Surf. This modern, stylish apartment is located on the first floor and boasts views of the rooftops from the rear and high street views from the front which can be enjoyed from the bay window.  Enjoy the hustle and bustle of the high street shops and have plenty of coffee stops along the way!


Southwold has plenty of enjoyable walks to discover whilst on holiday. You can step out onto the promenade and enjoy the fresh seaside air or if you fancy something a little more energised head across the bridge from Southwold Harbour to Walberswick.  For something more further afield, you’ll love Marsh Cottage Hide – tucked away in Reydon, the neighbouring village of Southwold. Not only is there a fantastic footpath from this destination all the way to Southwold but you can also find many bird species along the way. Paradise!

Sun Worshippers

Southwold is famous for the beautiful beach and quirky Pier – a Southwold holiday wouldn’t be the same without a lazy day on the sandy beach! For couples staying at Puffin Nest, you’re only a short walk away from all the excitement on the seafront. You can choose two routes, either carrying on to the end of Field Stile Road which takes you to North Parade or take a right turn onto Cumberland Road and head towards St James’ Green – you can even stop at The Sole Bay Inn for a thirst-quenching beverage! Both apartments are chic, modern and ultra-bright – the open plan layout is perfect for an easy holiday.

Anyone for a tipple..?

We are fortunate to have such a wonderful brewery in Southwold as well as having lots of choice where it comes to enjoying a pint or two.  And it’s not just a quick drink – enjoy the many eateries on offer in the town when holidaying with your loved one. Guests staying at The Nest are in a great position for walking to The Sole Bay Inn or The Lord Nelson - with both offering excellent Adnams ales, wines and food. The Nest is also conveniently only moments away from the brewery where you can book guided tours and see how these popular ales are created. The Nest is one of our most popular properties for two with its generous accommodation layout as well as being pet-friendly too!
