Beautiful period features complemented by modern comfort and convenience and a much-coveted seafront location make this converted coach house an excellent reflection of all that’s special about Southwold itself. With two gardens, private parking, plenty of space for six guests and a front-row seat for sunrise each day, it’s ready to welcome you!
Bedrooms and bathrooms
The three bedrooms here share a pastel coastal palette and have built-in storage space so you can settle in effortlessly. All on the first floor, one has a double bed, one has twin beds and the master room has wonderful sea views and a super-king zip-and-link bed which could also be set up as twins – just let us know which arrangement you’d prefer when you book your stay here. A family bathroom on this floor features a classic suite, while downstairs there’s a luxurious shower room.
Cooking and dining
Guests love chilling out in the beautiful sitting room and spacious sunroom here, but the kitchen is somewhere you’ll enjoy spending time in too. Here, style and function get equal billing – fittings include an electric oven and induction hob, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, Bosch washing machine and a selection of cookery books to whet everyone’s appetite. Off the kitchen, the dining area shares the same original wood block parquet flooring as the sitting room – it’s been beautifully preserved, so no heels please! – and there are tables and chairs in the walled courtyard garden if you’d like to enjoy food and drink in your own private outdoor space.
A large, lawned garden leads directly onto the seafront footpath and, in just a few steps, to nearby landmarks the Lord Nelson inn and the Sailors’ Reading Room. Enjoy the magnificent sea views here, or soak up the sun more privately in the enclosed paved and gravelled courtyard garden.
Off-street parking for two cars is accessed from each of the garden areas and is a real prize for such a seafront location. WiFi, bed linen and towels are all provided, gas central heating will keep you cosy whatever the weather, and, should you tire of the sea views, there’s a TV, DVD player, Bluetooth speaker with radio and a selection of board games for further entertainment.

Wonderful cottage with amazing sea views and central location. Mrs Clare Brock - 6th September 2017
This is a delightful cottage in a stunning location and provided a relaxing break.Mrs J Whitehead - 30th August 2017
Flint House is lovely. Ideally located in the centre of Southwold but with off road parking, a delightful garden leading to the seafront and even better secluded courtyard. It was clean and all equipment new or in pristine condition. We couldn't have had a nicer, more relaxing time or chosen a better option for a multi generational family holiday. Mrs Alison Stevenson - 29th August 2017
We were honored to be the very first people to enjoy Flint Cottage as a holiday home. It was perfect.The location is spectacular - apart from the obvious sea views , Flint Cottage is at the heart of Southwold and everything we needed was at hand. We made very good and frequent use of the Two Magpies for coffee, cakes, bread, and their fantastic range of gluten free products.The Co-op is ideal for essentials and the greengrocer (next to the butchers) is great for fresh fruit and veg. We had dinner at the Harbour Inn following a successful crabbing session. Thanks Sally for suggesting crabbing - the kids absolutely loved it.We have been exceptionally lucky with the weather and haven't needed to venture far away from the beach closest to here. The children have swum every day. For our last evening here we're enjoying fresh sea bass from a fishmonger at the harbour.We left Southwold twice - once for a visit to Aldeburgh where the Italian ice cream is worth the Â½ hour queuing. Last night we went to the Oysterage in Orford and enjoyed oyster, prawns, fish pie and other fresh fish.Ladies - beware Clare and Colleen, the clothes shop. It's full of temptation.We've been the first guests here, but we suspect that once news gets around that Flint Cottage is an amazing place to stay, we may have difficulty booking again!Kay Family - 4th June 2017
