Cosy, cute and just a few steps from the seashore, this former fisherman’s abode is ideal for all those who want to kick back and feel the sand between their toes. Pet-friendly and offering one-level living, it’s perfectly fitted-out for a fuss-free holiday in a coveted location.

Bedrooms and bathrooms
Three bedrooms all on ground level share a cheerful coastal colour palette and are furnished with comfort and sleep-quality in mind. The king-size bedroom comes with its own en suite bathroom that has both a stylish bath and separate shower cubicle for the ultimate in convenience, while a shower room serves the two other bedrooms. Within these, one has twin beds and the other a single, the latter also featuring a glass door leading onto the rear garden.

Cooking and dining
Clean, white and filled with light, the kitchen here boasts an electric oven and hob, fridge freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. There are multiple options when it comes to mealtimes: dine at the chic modern suite within the kitchen, enjoy drinks or a snack in the bistro-style setting of the conservatory, or move outside for a fresh air feast and stunning views across the marshes.

Ferry Road is home to some of Southwold’s most individual-looking properties, all of them – The Blue Ark included! – making the absolute best of their location. Out front, dunes separate you from the sands and seashore and, thanks to the view due east, this is where you’ll see the first of the day’s sun. And to the rear, the garden offers a private viewing of every sunset, along with an unrivalled and ever-changing perspective on the marshes that stretch across to the Harbour and the wildlife that inhabits them.

Parking is in huge demand so close to the beach, but you’re spoilt for choice here – The Blue Ark has not one, but two private spaces: one in a garage and one on the driveway! Two well-behaved dogs are most welcome to join in your holiday fun, and all the usual home comforts, including gas central heating, Smart TV, WiFi and towels, are provided for your convenience. Please note that although this property is all on one level, there is an occasional step into some of the rooms – for example from the sitting room to the conservatory.


We appreciated the welcome basket! All in all we had a fabulous stay and would recommend to others. The dogs loved it.
