Cute-as-pie and oh-so-snug, this lovely little conversion is nicknamed 'the love nest' for good reason - everyone who stays here seems to leave even more in love, both with their holiday companion and with Southwold itself!

Bedrooms and bathrooms
Tucked away at the top of this three-floor property, the bedroom is the epitome of boudoir chic. Enjoy sea views or a romantic breakfast from the cloud-soft comfort of your ornate double bed.  On the first floor, a pretty bathroom exudes an eclectic, pre-loved vibe and is full of light thanks to its bay window - the double-ended bath is perfect for bathing with a friend! - whilst a ground floor shower room provides the ultimate in cleansing convenience.   

Cooking and dining
A kitchen area is open plan with the sitting room, making meal preparation a companionable pastime. Compact but exceptionally well-planned, there's an electric oven with ceramic hob, fridge freezer, coffee machine and even a dishwasher and washer-dryer here! For coffee lovers the Nespresso machine will be an unexpected bonus so don't forget to pack some Nespresso pods to bring with you! You're spoilt for choice when it comes to where to eat - will you opt for the first floor dining table, the garden room downstairs, or on a sunny day perhaps you'd prefer to move outdoors to the pretty courtyard patio?

Just a short stroll from the beach, this bijou seaside sanctuary boasts a private patio area complete with table and chairs and reached through double doors from a Suffolk pamment-floored garden room. Roadside parking is available close by.

With underfloor heating downstairs, free Wi-Fi and TVs in both bedroom and sitting room, The Nest may be small but it's beautifully formed. Come as a couple, come alone... come soon!

Looking for a two night stay? The Nest offers great prices for two night stays out of season; why not book a cosy weekend away?
