George Orwell was a frequent guest in the 1930s when this was his parents' retirement home... today Montague House is a characterful holiday cottage full of contemporary-style comfort.
Bedrooms and bathrooms
Montague House sleeps up to seven people in four light-filled, cosy bedrooms. All on the first floor, you'll find two double-bedded rooms - both featuring period fireplaces - promising a perfect night's slumber. One of these leads to the single room - though, with additional access via a staircase from the utility room, this doesn't have to be used - and there is also a twin room. A stylish corner bath with shower steals the show in the fully-tiled upstairs bathroom, and for extra convenience there's a spacious shower room on the ground floor.
Cooking and dining
A cheery beach hut-blue and crisp white colour scheme accentuates the dark-wood floor and clever use of space in the kitchen, and a separate utility area features the all-important washing machine and tumble dryer. The dining room continues the property's coastal theme with stripped pine and painted furniture, whilst picture rails and built-in cupboards further hint at the building's history.
Enjoy food, drinks and family fun in the privacy of your very own walled garden. A spacious patio complete with table and chairs leads on to a lawned area edged by flower borders, whilst St Edmund's Church is glimpsed through the surrounding trees.
Situated at the lower end of the High Street, Montague House is beautifully-placed for a car-free break - park your vehicle nearby as everything is within walking distance! A cot and high chair are available for guests' use.

Friendly, efficient and courteous service from Suffolk Secrets and Southwold is a gem as ever. Ideal location and an excellent standard of accommodation.Mr Tim Bird - 22nd June 2017
We have stayed in many properties in Southwold over the last 22 years and this was by far the best. It was extremely comfortable and well equipped for 7 adults.Mrs H Read - 29th April 2016
