  • "A lovely, comfortable, well set out cottage, and in such a good position."

    The extras such as candles, throws on sofas, made our stay very homely. The only points we thought of were the heating. We were a bit hot, and would have changed the times of the heating being on. But understand the need to cater for all, and we did use the radiator thermostats. Also maybe an extra saucepan? We will be back!

  • "We had a fantastic stay at this property."

    It is a stone's throw from both the town centre and the beach. It's warm and cosy and also brilliant if you have a dog - and it was a nice touch when the owners left a bottle of wine on arrival. We booked 24 hours before arrival and the owner came back within minutes to say it would be cleaned and ready. We would happily return. Thank you

  • "A great location, very close to the sea, and a couple of minutes to Southwold's shops etc."

    Everything we needed for cooking etc. The downstairs bathroom, common in small dwellings, would not suit some. During our visit, parking was easier than expected.

  • "Although it's a lovely looking cottage in a great spot, there are some not so good bits."

    ..... Kitchen - The double/half step between the kitchen and dining room is lethal, I tripped a few times. The tap was covered in limescale. There are 12 fish knives (ever tried to cut/spread something with a fish knife?) but insufficient knives for two meals for four people. Not enough wine glasses. The dishwasher door catches on the baseboard - when you open or close it, the baseboard pops off. Bathroom - We had to descale the shower head - only about 10 holes were clear, the bathroom radiator was not working and the hot tap turns on and off the wrong way. General - I caught my bare feet on the gripper rods at the thresholds as the carpets are threadbare. Outside - is a bit dismal, not because of the time of year, but because the walls are painted black/deep charcoal.

  • "Location is fantastic."

    However the cottage needs some TLC. None of the internal doors close or have broken handles, some lights and sockets not working. Pedal bin broken, carpets and floors not great which was difficult as my daughter has a young child and a crawling baby. The lock on the front door was really hard and we were stranded outside one evening and had to ask for help. Bit stressful. Kitchen and bathroom was clean and reasonably good. All can be fixed pretty easily so it's a pity really.

  • "I mentioned to Sykes that I feel it’s important you make it clear that the bathroom is downstairs, and stairs are steep."

    Secondary glazing made it impossible to open downstairs windows. Courtyard neglected so not a pleasure to sit in. Some bulbs gone, pedal bin broken On the plus side, well located for shops and seaside

    Absolutely brilliant location.

  • "Lovely little property, perfect for a family group."

    But stairs probably mean not so suitable for elderly or young children. Beautiful details like hinges on doors. Well appointed house.

  • "We were rather disappointed to find two very dirty marks on the carpet in the sitting room and main bedroom on arrival."

    There was also a chip in the kitchen cupboard next to the cooker which we noted on arrival. There were only two large plates to use, at least another four would have been useful. The main problem was that all the under sheets and mattress protectors were very badly stained. Bedding is something we check when we arrive at a rented cottage. On stripping the beds, it was rather a surprise to find all these sheets needed washing. It was not feasible to do this on arrival as they would not have been several loads and we did have to sleep in the beds that evening. All the above were reported to your office on the day we left. The person we spoke to said she would let housekeeping know of these issues. Thank you.

  • "We had a comfortable stay, the only thing we lacked was somewhere to hang our coats and bags (it was a squeeze in the cupboard under the stairs and not ideal if a coat is a bit damp from rain to hang it in a cupboard), so I would consider including some hooks near the door."

    Otherwise the cottage was exactly as described and had everything we needed, we had a brilliant time in Southwold.

  • "This was a lovely cottage in the best location."

    We were a stone’s throw away from the beach and could see the sea from the window, then just around the corner from the high street. We had a wonderful few days staying in Southwold, we will definitely be returning. Thank you.

A traditional coastal cottage resting in the wonderful seaside town of Southwold, Suffolk, Cobblers Cottage is the ideal base for a family and their four-legged companion.

Settled into a picturesque location, Cobblers Cottage welcomes you to recline in a tasteful sitting area, where tartan sofas complement a bare brick fireplace housing a woodburning stove, a space to be enjoyed with a good book and a cup of tea.

The kitchen sports green and blue furniture and ample amenities for you to cook up a storm, which can be enjoyed in the dining room beside a second woodburning stove.

Soak the sand from your hair in the ground-floor bathroom before getting cosy in one of the two bedrooms, a double with bare brickwork adding a sense of history and a twin, perfect for children.

Enjoy breakfast outside in the courtyard, soaking up the sunshine and the sea air, before heading out to explore the local area.
