A beautifully renovated and historic cottage in Southwold. 

With views to the Lighthouse and situated just off St James's Green, this lovely cottage is in a perfect location for family holidays and weekends away throughout the year.  James' Cottage has recently been sympathetically renovated by the same family who have owned it for the last 40 years, which means that many of the traditional and attractive features of the cottage have now been blended with stylish and comfortable furnishings for the five bedrooms and three lovely bathrooms.  All bedrooms have TVs with Netflix and there is a blue tooth speaker in the kitchen and an Alexa in the house.
