Beautifully situated on a private residential street betwixt town and beach, Balmore Cottage is ideal for a holiday with family or friends thanks to its two bedroom, two bathroom design. Regret no pets allowed.

Bedrooms and bathrooms
Wake up to the sight of waves breaking and the sound of gulls searching for their breakfast: both first floor bedrooms here - one with a king size bed, the other with twin beds - have sea views. Each has its own en-suite facilities, so no need to queue for your morning shower. And there's also a ground floor cloakroom for the ultimate in convenience.

Cooking and dining
A cottage-style kitchen/dining room in cool hues of cream and blue is fully equipped with all the cook's essentials, and there's further dining space in the flooded-with-light conservatory. Alternatively, snuggle up with a snack before the sitting room's Victorian coal-effect fire - you're on holiday, after all!

With the beach just yards away, this lovely cottage is perfectly situated for a traditional seaside holiday; but if you yearn for some private outdoor space, you'll love the walled courtyard which is accessed through floor-to-ceiling glass doors from the conservatory... perfect for an al fresco supper!

Full of personality and fun for a holiday at any time of year, Balmore Cottage offers free Wi-Fi and a full complement of essential equipment including microwave, dishwasher and washing machine. On-street parking is available outside the property.

excellent, no problems lovely warm and homely, very clean and comfortable. Miss Judith Bull - 2nd April 2018
This is one of the best houses we have stayed in, in Southwold. Not only is it in a fantastic position right by the beach, offering sea and lighthouse views from both bedrooms, but it is also beautifully presented. It is absolutely immaculate and extremely comfortable in a way that so many rental properties just aren't. You can tell that this is house is cared for and one in which the owners want you to feel at home and you do! It is cosy, but spacious enough for four people, as well as having comfortable beds and sofas, lovely bathrooms, a great range of kitchen equipment and wifi! The presentation of this cottage deserves special praise. Dr Josef Craven - 30th October 2017
