Winner of a RIBA Ingenuity Award for its sophisticated design, high-quality execution and ageless quality, Sandy Castle is full of surprises. An emphasis on light and space plus a stunning private roof terrace and a whole host of playthings make it huge fun for four, whatever the weather!

Bedrooms and bathrooms
Both on the ground floor, the first bedroom boasts a gorgeous super-king-sized bed and wall-mounted TV, whilst the second room has a divine double bed, feature glass wall and ceiling, and a door leading directly to the games room. There's a luxurious bathroom on this level, and on the first floor you'll find a shower room too - each convenience is beautifully tiled and full of finishing touches.

Cooking and dining
Enjoying rooftop views, the kitchen here is equipped for effortless living. Curvy counters and sleek white cupboards combine with an electric oven and gas hob, fridge, microwave and dishwasher to make the most of this space, whilst the separate dining area features a trendy wooden suite and is flooded with light thanks to full-height doors leading onto the outside terrace.

Generous expanses of glass give a sense of the outdoors throughout the property, but there's an extra 'wow' factor on the first-floor terrace. Secluded and south-west facing, it features a unique walk-on glass floor and quirky furniture... the perfect spot for sunbathers and star-gazers.

Superb for holidays all-year-round, Sandy Castle is gas heated -underfloor too! - and features an impressive range of entertainment options including TV, Blu-Ray DVD, iPod dock, Wii console and games plus, in the ground floor garage conversion, a pool table and darts board. There's Wi-FI and even a small study space should you need to work whilst you're here, a washing machine, travel cot and highchair are provided, and parking is available nearby.

Sandy Castle is a different holiday let from usual cottage, having a games room is a bonus. The upstairs living area is very light and airy and has an added unusual outside space. We enjoyed it very much.Miss Siobhan Butler - 19th February 2018
Sandy Castle where we stayed is a unique property tucked away in a quiet street, yet close to all shops, restaurants and pubs and offering everything and more for a totally relaxing, peaceful holiday in Southwold. Can't wait to go again! Mrs S Grant - 25th July 2017
This is our second stay at Sandy Castle. already looking forward to the third!Mrs Claire Graham - 6th December 2016
We loved 4 Sandy Castle and would definitely book again. Loved all the little extras such as the welcome goodies from local suppliers (and Adnams fizz!) and the location was great for us as a family as we were close to everything. Would definitely book again. Really impressed with the local team. Very friendly and helpful and made me feel very welcome as soon as I walked into the office. Offering my children a stick of rock was the icing on the cake! Thank you for a brilliant holiday. We absolutely loved Southwold and would definitely use So Southwold again.Mrs A Reep - 22nd August 2016
