  • "Elkhorn was absolutely beautiful, as a group of 7 friends, we loved it from the minute we stepped through the door."

    Comfortable beds and lovely bed linen. Great choice and I’m sure we will be back.

  • "A large, warm, comfortable and very well equipped house."

    Perfect for families. The two lounges were brilliant for separating the football fans watching tv from the more cerebral / sedentary crew.

  • "Excellent roomy house, plenty of space to escape !"

    Ideally situated too, generally speaking we had no trouble parking close by with 3 cars. Nice touch got a call because there was no one in the property the night before us was ready for us to go in before heck in time. If I had a minor quibble, holiday properties tend to have a supply of 2nd hand books, puzzles or games (which were mentioned), luckily we bought our own supply. Also perhaps for people not used to the area maybe some tourist type leaflets (note no longer a Tourist Information centre in town). But we thoroughly enjoyed our stay (6 adults) and would defintely rebook (this our 2nd visit to Elkhorn).

  • "A really nice big house - felt that a bit more could have been done with the back yard which was a bit dull."

    Did not fancy trying to down stairs shower room which needed a bit of up dating. The Belling cooker was fine for us but not sure it would work for a full house. Otherwise, of the many Best of Suffolks we have stayed in, this was a good one.

The property

Occupying a superb setting near the center of the bustling town of Southwold in Suffolk, Elkhorn is the perfect destination for a family get-together or a gathering of family and friends.

The house boasts a wealth of beautiful features and has been tastefully furnished to create a truly inspiring holiday home.

There is so much space here that there is always somewhere to get away from it all.

The open-plan kitchen/diner is stunning with a stylish fully fitted kitchen forming the heart of the home together with a separate extensive dining room.

Choose from a relaxing ground floor snug or the sociable first-floor sitting room.

Both have ample seating and offer a welcoming space to either get together and socialise or to get away from each other and chill out.

The enclosed courtyard provides a much-needed outside space to enjoy the Suffolk sunshine and indulge in some drinking and dining alfresco.

When bedtime calls, there is a bedroom to suit everyone, with a king size, two double-sizes, a twin and a bunk room; all are beautifully presented and especially inviting.

There is nowhere nicer to lay your weary head at night or to wake up in the morning feeling refreshed and raring to go.

The location of Elkhorn is just perfect being close to the beach and amenities of the town of Southwold.

Spend awhile in Southwold checking out the beach, the pier and the lighthouse or go beach hut spotting and enjoy a tour of the famous Adnams Brewery.

A little further afield find attractions such as Yoxford Antiques Centre and Gardens, Halesworth Museum, Framlingham Castle and RSPB Minsmere.

Meander along the coast to seaside towns such as Thorpeness, Walberswick and Aldeburgh, which all offer a delightful outing and sample the best fish and chips anywhere!

Get at one with nature with a visit to Orford Ness Nature Reserve and take a stroll anywhere within Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

For the ultimate holiday destination in the heart of Southwold, book a trip to Elkhorn.
