An Englishman's home is his castle... and there's definitely something drawbridge-like about your arrival across Arva's first-floor walkway! Just a stroll from the Pier and seafront, this split-level family home is peaceful and comfortably quirky.

Bedrooms and bathrooms
On the ground floor a large bedroom can be made up with a king-size bed or twins and has its own en-suite shower room for one-level convenience. There's a separate cloakroom on this floor, whilst upstairs you'll find a large family bathroom plus two further bedrooms, one with a double bed and TV, the second with twin beds.

Cooking and dining
With lots of light and large windows onto the garden, the kitchen is white, bright, and well-stocked with a Range-style double electric oven plus five-burner gas hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine. In the retro-styled sitting/dining room there's a feature wooden table with matching chairs and endless elbow room... windows at either end plus patio doors to the garden throw lots of light onto every gourmet gathering.

An expertly-planted garden wraps around the entire building, offering plenty of options for sun- and shade-seekers alike. To the rear, an impressive decking area has comfortable wooden furniture and leads to the large lawn - you'll love having your very own garden beach hut! - which enjoys all-day sunlight, whilst at the front, doors from the sitting room open onto a more secluded spot. The 'sunken' aspect of the garden, along with secure fencing and gates, make it a safe spot for children to play.

There's private parking for one car to the rear of the property - access to this from the garden, plus the ground floor bedroom with en-suite, mean that less-mobile guests can enjoy a fuss-free holiday here. Additional parking is roadside, and Arva is fully equipped with Wi-Fi, TV with Freeview and internet access including iPlayer, DVD and iPod dock along with a DVD library to select your favourite film. A travel cot and highchair are provided, and the property has a water softener. Please be aware the walkway accessed from Pier Avenue is unsuitable for children.

Lovely property & no complaints- will be booking again!Mrs M Shaw - 24th May 2017
Excellent property -just what we needed for our family of six. Mrs A Marquina - 22nd March 2017
We have stayed here twice now and really like it. It is spacious and contemporary yet very comfortable. Excellent standard of towels and bed linen and virtually everything is provided including cleaning materials, hand wash, dish washer tablets etc. Mrs G Offley - 14th March 2017
Lovely to hear the sea when we woke up. Another happy holiday memory to add to so many others from Suffolk. So Southwold make it all so easy. We especially appreciate their unobtrusive support when so many companies now are 'in your face' trying to sell you more!Dr R Higgins - 18th February 2017

Comfortable, relaxed, calming house which felt like home. Great location and extremely well equipped property.Mrs M Richards - 22nd June 2015
It was a very spacious house with an interesting layout. Very close to the pier and seafront and only a short walk to the High Street. I had a really super holiday and stayed in a fantastic property, one which I would stay in again.Mrs Sarah Tustin - 17th May 2015
