Make yourself at home the minute you open the front door - this much-loved holiday cottage is the perfect place in which to revive that oft-forgotten sense of informal and intimate living. Quality carpets, comfortable furnishings and family memorabilia add to the homeliness, whilst every modern must-have is provided... there's even private parking!

Bedrooms and bathrooms
All off the first floor landing, there's one double-bedded room, another with twin beds and a third with a stylish cabin bed for a child with storage below, all of them decorated in calming colours and enjoying lots of natural light. A bright and fresh-white family bathroom is on this floor too, complete with overbath shower for a choice of cleansing options.

Cooking and dining
Creamy, neutral tones and dual-aspect windows create a sense of space in the country-style kitchen, which comes complete with all the essentials for easy-living, including modern built-in appliances and a door through to the conservatory where you'll find additional white goods and a wooden dining suite. An arch from the kitchen leads into a more formal dining room which seats six comfortably and is also full of light thanks to large windows onto the conservatory.

A brick-paved driveway at the front of the cottage provides ample parking and is much sought-after in such a close-to-the-beach location. The pretty, private garden to the rear is fully fenced and planted with trees and shrubs around its lawn - a summer house and patio, complete with outdoor furniture, complete the scene.

If you tire of the view from your sitting room window seat, there's Sky TV and Wi-Fi for entertainment, whilst the self-catering aspect of your stay is made fuss-free thanks to the dishwasher and washer/dryer that are also provided. Please note this property is not suitable for under 3's.

A lovely homely house. It was a lovely bright space and well equipped.Mr Nick Millea - 24th April 2017
Excellent house in a good location for beach and town. Well equipped and warm. So Southwold staff efficient and helpful.Mrs Jenny Gibson - 30th October 2016
It was a great place to stay. The property was excellent. It was exactly as advertised but had more of a 'wow factor' when seeing the property in real life. We were pleased with our decision to stay there. The property has a driveway, a dishwasher, a CD player and a record player! Suited us perfectly. We are so glad that we discovered Suffolk Secrets and we would definitely book with them again. Excellent service and set up. We didn't have any problems/issues with the property we stayed in but knowing who we could contact and where they were was great. We have stayed in several cottages/holiday homes around the UK and rate the service from Suffolk Secrets highly. Thank you.Mr Stephen Moss - 29th July 2016
Excellent property. Very clean and well maintained with everything we needed. Great location and with off street parking too. Would definitely recommend it.Mrs Ruth Van Schagen - 5th June 2016
