Stripped pine floors, period decorative fireplaces and a no-expense-spared approach to furnishings and fittings make this one of Southwold's finest villas. Set back from the same residential road that is home to the lighthouse, every room here offers a similarly warm welcome.
Bedrooms and bathrooms
A beautiful king size bed vies for attention with a highly-detailed period fireplace, while also on the first floor a twin-bedded room in peaceful tones promises a perfect night's sleep. A roll-top bath in the family bathroom extends the extravagance! On the second floor, romance reigns - the divine double-bedded room here is pastel-pretty and has its own en-suite shower room. On the ground floor, a wet room completes the washing line-up... convenience on every level!
Cooking and dining
It won't be easy to drag yourself away from those squashy sitting room sofas, but the kitchen/dining room at Rowan Villa is, quite simply, stunning. Pine floors, fittings and a farmhouse-style table plus white-painted cupboards and acres of space make this the quintessence of family togetherness. And if you're planning to do more than just enjoy the view, the kitchen is equipped with Smeg fridge-freezer, electric oven, gas hob and dishwasher.
A wrought-iron gate and old-fashioned path lead through an enclosed front garden to the villa's main entrance, beside which you will find a sunny patio area furnished with table and chairs.
There's private parking for one car, plus roadside spaces nearby. Wi-Fi and a telephone for incoming calls are provided, and the sitting room has a TV, CD, DVD, iPod dock, DAB radio and Nintendo Wii. A high chair and travel cot are available, and there's no need to let the laundry pile up as there's a washing machine in the kitchen. A well-behaved pet is welcome too!

We had a lovely long weekend and Rowan Villa was ideal; plenty of space and a great kitchen for cooking and socialising in. Thank you for the goodies at the start of our stay.Mrs C Hammond - 2nd December 2015
I thought it was absolutely lovely. A great deal of thought had obviously gone into the choice of furnishings and equipment (particularly in the splendid kitchen). We all agreed it was a perfect holiday home. Your staff really were helpful in dealing with a couple of maintenance issues - nothing was too much trouble.Ms Jane Rayson - 11th October 2015
