  • "The property had a continual smell of air freshener and as we could not open the windows this spoilt what was a good sized location."

    Also the community light outside of the main bedroom window made it very difficult to get a good nights sleep. You really do need to have the windows opened and install blinds or curtains to contain the light. We really enjoyed our visit to Southwold but unless these changes are made we will stay elsewhere.

  • "This property is a nice well equipped and comfortable base for a stay on the Suffolk coast,we have booked it several times over the last few years and are sorry to report that it is now looking rather ' tired ' and could do with a lick of paint and an overall freshen up,the pool area is also looking very shabby with dirty changing rooms and lots of black mould on the pool filters."

    On our recent stay we were only given 2 small loo rolls for a seven day stay for 4 adults,rather mean spirited as it is not a cheap rental.We noticed a lot of properties were for sale on the complex and wondered why.

  • "Lovely property but quite isolated and a car necessary for every outing and unable to open the windows which made it very stuffy."

    Property very well equipped and furnished. Beautiful views from the grounds. Very disappointing not to be able to use the pool but it is necessary to book and it was only available for 45 minutes during the whole week, in the middle of our last day. Perhaps it should not be sold with pool access or only when available. Would certainly return to this beautiful area but the location of this property is not for us.

  • "Will definitely be booking again asap!"

    The apartment is beautiful, everything is perfect with a high attention to detail. 5minutes away for pub food which is absolutely gorgeous. We had quite a long journey but it was worth it when we opened the doors to the apartment. We had everything we needed! Like I say we will be booking again as soon as possible. Thanks for a great stay.

  • "We enjoyed 5 nights in this cosy, spacious and attractive apartment which is in a peaceful and quiet setting yet within easy reach of the coast."

    The welcome pack was a thoughtful touch. We were a disappointed that the swimming pool was closed for maintenance during our stay as it looked well worth using.

The property

A welcoming entrance hall, exclusive to Redshanks, sits at the heart of the apartment with the large open plan living/dining room to the right with beautiful stone fireplace and the superb modern kitchen through an arch.

Both spacious and stylish bedrooms open off the hall, one with a chic bathroom and a modern shower room, easily accessible for guests in the second bedroom and in the living area. Set in 12 acres of private grounds with allocated off road parking, this stylish apartment is part of a Grade II listed conversion of a former hospital which has been superbly renovated with the communal facilities for guests including an indoor heated pool, mini fitness suite. Ground Floor Carpeted in the hall, living space and both bedrooms with hard flooring in both bathrooms and the kitchen.

The front door is wider than standard and there’s a small lip into the apartment and between rooms and into the shower, otherwise Redshanks is suited to guests with a mobility problem. Living/Dining Room Light streams in through the tall sash windows overlooking the courtyard.

Furnished in a simple contemporary style with two double sofas and footstool, handsome dining table with six chairs.

The stone fireplace is a centerpiece to the room with large flat-screen TV above and cabinet in the corner stocked with games. Kitchen A gorgeous kitchen with units in a U shape with integrated Neff electric oven and separate grill at waist height (great for bad back sufferers!), four ring gas hob, large fridge with separate two deep drawer freezer, dishwasher.

free standing microwave and slow cooker.

The cupboards are stacked with everything you could need for entertaining at home and an opening into the living space allows the chef to socialise whilst cooking! Master Bedroom A sunny south-facing room with king-size bed, bedside drawers and ample storage in a wardrobe with drawer beneath and large chest of drawers with TV sitting on the top. En-Suite Bathroom Chic modern bathroom with shower over the bath, WC, washbasin and heated towel rail. Shower Room Off the hallway with double shower cubicle, washbasin, WC and heated towel rail. Guest Bedroom An equally stylish bedroom overlooking another courtyard.

The bed here’s a double with bedside drawers, a wardrobe with drawer beneath and tall boy. Outside Set in 12 acres of private grounds for you to enjoy with allocated off road parking for one car and additional visitor parking close by, Redshanks (44 Blythview) is part of a Grade II listed conversion of a former hospital which has been superbly renovated with the communal facilities for guests including an indoor heated pool, mini fitness suite.

About the location


Lowestoft 13.4 miles; Ipswich 35.1 miles

The village of Reydon is adjoined to Southwold, one of north Suffolk's most beautiful and popular seaside towns. The market town of Southwold is known for its iconic whitewashed working lighthouse, restored pier, brightly coloured beach huts and the harbour where you can purchase freshly caught fish for your tea. The areas surrounding Reydon and Southwold offer many places to visit, whilst walkers, cyclists, and bird watchers can enjoy the beautiful Suffolk Heritage Coastline with unspoilt heath lands and nature reserves including RSPB Minsmere. The nearby fashionable seaside town of Aldeburgh offers independent shops and galleries and along the seafront is Moot Hall, home to its museum and The Scallop, an interlocking sculpture dedicated to Benjamin Britten. Two miles from Aldeburgh is Thorpeness where you can spend a day boating on the magical Century Meare with its Peter Pan themed islands. Both the cities of Ipswich and Norwich are within easy driving distance.
