A feature of Southwold's seafront for many years, The Craighurst has been both a hotel and a 'crammer' - Eric Blair prepared for his Indian Police Service exams here before he became better known as the writer George Orwell. Today it's home to the noteworthy No 9, a stunning duplex with spectacular sea views.
Bedrooms and bathrooms
On the second floor, a beautiful king-size room plus another with twin beds both enjoy uninterrupted sea views - open the windows and you'll be woken gently by the sound of the waves! Also off the spacious landing here, a double-bedded room has views across the rooftops to the lighthouse and St Edmunds Church. The family bathroom is fresh, bright and decorated in cheerful coastal colours; it has both a bath and a separate shower cubicle.
Cooking and dining
Your first-floor kitchen/dining room which is large and spacious, is exceptionally well-equipped with plenty of storage space. Whilst every home must-have is included: electric hob and oven, fridge, freezer, microwave, dishwasher and washer/dryer. A spacious dining suite is set before the period fireplace and flooded with light thanks to the large kitchen window and glazed double doors which lead into the sea-facing sitting room. A small study provides an additional space with a small sofa should two of the party want to relax in another area of the property.
This is a large comfortable room with high ceilings and a big bay window. It has magnificent views of the sea and pier. It still has it's original elegant marble fireplace. There is a fully glazed door leading onto the balcony. There is a Smart TV and DVD player.
With the beach on its doorstep, 9 The Craighurst is perfectly positioned for a buckets-and-spades holiday. But you can enjoy a bird's eye view of the day's activities from your own private balcony, which is accessed through fully-glazed doors from the sitting room.
There's plenty of space for buckets and spades, wellies and waterproofs in the entrance hall, so bring what you need, whatever the weather! Wi-Fi is provided, and there are TVs in both the sitting room and king-size bedroom if you need a night in. Roadside parking is available nearby. Please note a refundable security deposit is required upon booking. Regret no pets.
