Chockablock with character, this cosy country cottage is just a short drive from Southwold's town, beach and harbour, making it the ideal choice for guests hoping to combine a traditional seaside getaway with some prime Suffolk peace and quiet. Low ceilings and a woodburner add an intimate feel, whilst the owners' many thoughtful touches mean guests return time after time.
Bedrooms and bathroom
Two ground floor bedrooms - one with a king size bed, the other a single - make this a great choice for those who prefer single-storey living. Both have soft carpets underfoot and are prettily-furnished, with neutral colours adding to the sense of calm. You'll also find a beautifully-tiled bathroom on the ground floor, whilst upstairs there's a welcoming twin-bedded room complete with a feature beamed ceiling. A similarly tranquil 'snug' creates additional get-away-from-it-all space.
Cooking and dining
A high-spec kitchen/dining room is full of light thanks to its cottage-style windows and French doors opening onto the garden. Charmingly country in style but full of up-to-the-minute must-haves - including an induction hob, electric oven, fridge-freezer, dishwasher and washing machine - it's a real joy to cook and eat in here.
A gravelled and lawned garden wraps around the cottage and is bordered by mature trees, hedging and flower beds. There's furniture for meals and drinks outdoors, plus parking for two cars and plenty of space for children or a pet to work off some energy.
Fridays Cottage has ladder-style stairs to its first floor so please supervise any little ones climbing them. A travel cot and highchair are available upon request, and there is Wi-Fi plus a Wii games console with controllers, PS3 with games, and a selection of games for guests' entertainment. A starter pack for the woodburner is provided, and additional wood is available for a small charge - please pop your payment into the honesty box!

Fantastic cottage wonderful and amazing in all views and to use. Location brilliant just enough distance from anywhere you wish to visit. Children loved the features and all the games. Will be back if we can. - 3rd May 2019
An amazing little cottage with everything you could possibly need for a relaxing break. It was an amazing few days away. We have lots of family in the vicinity but have a 5 year old and 5 month old twins so don't want to impose on anyone. It was the perfect base to visit everyone with everything we could possibly need. We will definitely be returning to the cottage and will probably book it each time we visit the area. Mrs Emma Stammers - 24th April 2019
