  • "The property was wonderful - well equipped and spotlessly cleaned."

    We loved the Victorian features, and the furniture was very comfortable. A real gem.

    We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay in the cottage, and hope that the weather was good for your holiday in Southwold. !7 South Green has been the family holiday home for 50 years and we are pleased to make it available for others to enjoy. We hope that you will return to 17 South Green soon. Property Owner

  • "Lovely well equipped cottage in a great location."

    We really enjoyed or stay with trips to the British Superbikes, Framlingham castle, Beccles, Walberswick walk and ferry, Woodbridge mill, Ellough Park karting and the putting and crazy golf by the pier. This is definitely NOT a criticism just a suggestion for improvement would be to install a small handle on the wall at the bottom of the staircase. I have some mobility problems and this would have greatly assisted me when using the stairs.

    We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay at the cottage, we try to keep it very family friendly. We will look at your suggestion to see if we can incorporate some form of handle or handrail without restricting the stair width. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cosy cottage with everything we needed in a great location near the beach and town facilities."

    Very well presented, had recently had new curtains and a lick of paint. Well equipped kitchen, lots of crockery, and a cupboard of beach gear - windbreak, buckets and spades etc.

  • "Good situation and convenient for the town centre and beeches."

    Nice and comfy. The upstairs wet-room wasn't used by us. Basically, it is too small and thus inconvenient to use.

Inside, the accommodation is immaculately presented and offers the best of both worlds; a range of traditional features with all the mod cons any discerning holiday guest would expect.

The sitting room is inviting and has ample seating arranged around an attractive woodburning stove which provides a real focal point to the room.

The light and airy bedrooms offer a calming space to relax into after a hard day of exploring and are a great place to wake up to in the morning.

Just a few minutes from the cottage is the wonderful sandy beach of Southwold together with an impressive selection of local amenities, making it an appealing place for a day out.

Travelling a little further afield from the cottage and you can check out towns such as Aldeburgh, Thorpeness, Woodbridge and Saxmundham, which all offer an excellent range of shops and eateries.

If you want a bit of adventure then jump in the car and head to Bewilderwood, Go Ape Thetford and Ellough Park Racing Circuit or for something a little more sedate, take a trip to Framlingham Castle, Somerleyton Hall, Yoxford Antiques Centre and Gardens and Glemham Hall.
