Southwold's bistros and boutiques may be just a wander away, but step into this blissful holiday bolthole and you'll feel as if you're in a different world. Set within the walled garden of the owners' period home on a quiet side street, it's the ideal hide-out for guests who want to enjoy a fuss-free getaway.

Bedrooms and bathrooms
Embracing all the benefits of studio living, The Elms Mews has one large open plan living space, elegantly furnished and with warm wooden flooring throughout. To the rear the spacious sleeping area has a double bed and built-in wardrobe, while the adjoining shower room continues the property's peaceful colour scheme and features a fully-tiled power-shower cubicle.

Cooking and dining
Food - whether being prepared or enjoyed - is a social event here. Compact but cleverly designed, the kitchen area has an electric cooker and small hob, fridge with ice box, microwave and Nespresso coffee machine... whether you're serving freshly-made savouries from the local deli, or cooking up a feast of locally-caught seafood, everything you need is provided. A window-side dining table sticks to the studio principles of sociable living.

Stylish furniture set within your own gravelled and planted garden area provides somewhere to sit out and enjoy the fresh air, and if you're planning an active holiday there's bike storage available here also. Private parking - much sought-after in the central location - is provided too.

This beautifully-presented first floor studio has gas-fired heating, a Sky HD plus package and free Wi-Fi, and there's a washing machine and tumble dryer available in the garage below for guests' use.
