This elegant home sleeps eight in ultimate comfort, yet still conjures a sense of calm with plenty of spread-out space for everyone.

Bedrooms and bathrooms
Spread across the first and second floors, all five bedrooms are cosy and well furnished - previous guests have made special mention of how comfy the beds are! Choose from a king-size bedroom which comes complete with its own ensuite shower room, two double bedrooms, one twin-bedded room and a bunk room which is ideal for small children. Aside from the en suite, there's a family bathroom on the first floor and a shower room on the ground floor - close to both garden and kitchen... no need for queues!

Cooking and dining
Elkhorn is close to all the seafront and town centre eateries, but it's easy to prepare your own feasts in the large kitchen here - it's full of light and comes complete with all the essentials for a happy holiday. Cook, chill and chatter at the breakfast bar or table ... or locate to the dining room, complete with period fireplace, for a more formal meal setting.

Just moments from the seafront, Elkhorn stands mid-way along a quiet side street and has small a front garden area. But it's at the rear of the property that you'll really relax... a paved courtyard provides plenty of privacy and has outdoor rattan furniture for food and drink shared al fresco. At first floor level, doors from the huge, high-ceilinged sitting room lead on to a distinctive balcony that offers sea views and a breath of salt-kissed fresh air - lovely whatever time of year you visit!

We know that big group getaways work best when there's room for all, so at Elkhorn the ground floor family/play room is a real bonus - it can provide quiet time for those who want to get away from the crowd, or a place for the kids to kick back with their toys without compromising the sense of calm created in the larger sitting room above. If you want more than the seagulls as your holiday soundtrack, there are iPod docks in both the family/play room and the kitchen, and for connection to the outside world, Wi-Fi is provided. The Sky variety bundle is a nice touch. There's unrestricted parking right outside too. Please note that eight is the maximum number of guests that can be accommodated here.

Elkhorn is a lovely house, much more spacious than it looks. One extremely welcome bonus was that the beds were very comfortable- almost unheard of in rented properties!Ms J Malvisi - 26th October 2015
A lovely property, a very short walk from the beach, which is good for children and all the equipment needed for the beach!Mrs V J Coffey - 10th September 2015
Elkhorn was a great house, close to the beach, the shops and the pubs/restaurants. It was in excellent condition and the best Southwold property we have used over the years.
