Leave the everyday behind and revel in a self-catering holiday ensconced in luxury - a 'no compromise' renovation has made this property the ultimate escape.

Bedrooms and bathrooms
Two elegant first-floor bedrooms offer the ultimate in night-time luxury -Cotswold Company furniture, the highest-quality fabrics, Sheridan duck down and feather pillows and - in case you want to catch up with the outside world - a Smart TV in each! Soothing shades in the king-size bedded master suite are complemented by a bright, white ensuite shower room, and to complete the holiday ambiance there's even a private balcony with pretty furniture for two. In the second bedroom, two single beds offer flexibility, while just along the landing a family bathroom features a bath with power-shower above, plus washbasin and wc. A ground floor cloakroom completes the trio of conveniences.

Cooking and dining
A brilliantly-designed kitchen bursting with all the latest mod-cons is at the heart of an elegant open plan living area - there's copious cupboard and counter space plus quality appliances from high-end brands including Miele, Siemens, Nespresso and Baumatic. Budding chefs and connoisseurs will love the electric oven and induction hob, fridge, freezer, microwave and wine fridge, while those who do the clearing up afterwards will appreciate the inclusion of a dishwasher... there's plenty of choice for those who like to sit and watch too, with stools at a breakfast bar creating a clever divide between the kitchen and a sturdy dining table.

No stone has been left unturned in the creation of this super holiday cottage - to the front a private patio with French doors from the lounge area area comes complete with garden furniture, while bi-fold doors from the kitchen onto a rear courtyard, also equipped with a table and seating - pour yourself a glass of something cool from the wine fridge and soak up the sunshine in your own little part of Southwold! There's a nice surprise on the first floor too: a delightful balcony from the master suite is the perfect place for morning tea or a late-night tipple - take your pick!

Never has the adage 'small but perfectly formed' been more apt - The Haven really does have everything on your holiday wish-list - private parking, Smart TV with Blu-Ray/DVD and 3D capability, BT Infinity Wi-Fi, washing machine and even a library for those who want to curl up with a good book. If you're travelling with babies or young children, they're catered for too... no need to bring your own micro-steam steriliser or kiddie-sized plates, cups and cutlery - The Haven has it all covered!
Please note a refundable security deposit of £150 is required four weeks prior to your holiday.

The Haven cerainly lives up to its name - it is an oasis of calm amidst the busy streets of Southwold. A very tasteful property with quality fixtures and fittings in an incredibly convenient location. Having a car parking space is a real bonus as parking in Southwold can be problematic.The service provided by Suffolk Secrets is first class - a couple of minor issues we had were dealt with promptly and efficiently in a very friendly manner.Mrs Lyn Lawrence - 3rd September 2018
Very comfortable, well-equipped property with high quality appliances/ linen etc. Would highly recommend the property and would happily stay there again.Mrs L Hill - 9th July 2018
We love Suffolk and particularly Southwold. The "Haven" is an ideal place to stay and really makes it the perfect holiday.Mrs J Brown - 25th June 2018
Best place we have ever stayed in.Mrs Sheila Gillick - 31st December 2017
Having stayed in some lovely cottages in Southwold over the years, The Haven is by far the best. The location is quiet but close to shops, pubs, the beach etc and a big bonus was the parking space! The interior of the cottage is modern and bright, spotlessly clean and with all the facilities that make it a real home-from-home. The owners have thought of everything. We will definitely return. Mrs Susan Marshall - 19th September 2017
Good property, nice friendly town that we have visited over 20 times.Mr B Burgess - 17th July 2017
The property was beautifully appointed inside with excellent furnishings and fittings and very convenient for the town. We only met your team when we picked up and dropped off the keys but they were very pleasant and the local area was good for walking and being beside the seaside. We also did two very good shows during Southwold Arts Festival which we thoroughly enjoyed.Mrs Jean Marshall - 3rd July 2017
This property suits us down to the ground. As 2 OAPs it is well presented, has all the facilities we need and is centrally located with a parking space.Dr FRANK MANGAN - 16th May 2017
A really lovely, relaxing environment. Would definitely visit again. Ms Karin Kuhlow - 31st March 2017
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The Haven is very well situated in the centre of the town, yet secluded and quiet. It was very nice to have coffee and tea provided on entry, too ! The property is very well equipped and fulfilled all of our needs. Mr W Jopling - 9th January 2017
The property was excellent. Beautifully renovated and decorated to a very high standard. We did feel like wonderful people just like it said on the welcome door mat!Mrs Gina Dooley - 21st June 2016
