  • "The property was very quiet and ideally located."

    It is well equipped with everything you require in the kitchen area, although the fridge could have been slightly bigger, but there is an individual freezer in a separate area. The garden area was a good size but it was starting to look tired and the furniture required cleaning before we could use it. The garden was also overgrown. The property was clean ,although some areas appeared not to have been cleaned for some time. We had an enjoyable stay in Southwold and the property was generally okay just a few things which could improve it.

  • "Furnishings, cutlery , crockery etc were good quality and well maintained."

    The garden area was beginning to feel tired....the furniture was beginning to rust and felt uninviting. Generally however it was a comfortable and inviting place to stay. This was our second stay here and we would be happy to stay again.

  • "Appreciate the need for ventilation hence the locked windows slightly ajar but would have liked the option of opening the window more at times."

    Also would like to be able to offload and load up the car by using the driveway , appreciate that the car cannot be parked there 24/7 because of the flats

    Thank you for your feedback on Garden Cottage, and we are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay. All the windows have window keys kept in each room which can be used to open them. Unfortunately the driveway is privately owned by another property so there is no right of way for vehicles. There is plenty of parking along the seafront right outside and in neighbouring roads. Our team are always available to provide local knowledge on the best place to leave your car if you are ever unsure. We hope to welcome you back to Best of Suffolk again soon. Property Owner

The property

Tucked away in a secluded location but just a stone’s throw from the beach, Garden Cottage in Southwold, Suffolk is the perfect destination for a family holiday.

The cottage is surprisingly spacious inside and the open-plan layout is great for families with a space for everyone.

The whole room is beautifully light and airy with large windows overlooking the delightful gardens.

The ample seating area offers a suitably sociable space but with the addition of the TV and DVD player, equally it can be an area where you just chill out and relax.

The attractive kitchen is fully fitted with everything needed to create healthy food for the whole family and there are bar stools conveniently positioned so you can sit down, pour yourself a drink and keep the chef company.

From the kitchen, you can step into the elegant dining area where there is a rustic dining table all set up ready for the whole family to gather, enjoy long, lazy meals together and catch up on all the holiday news.

If the sun is shining, then there are gorgeous gardens to the rear of the property with lawns and a patio area and furniture all set up ready for you to enjoy some time drinking, dining and relaxing alfresco.

At bedtime, guests can choose from two king-sizes or a single; all are beautifully presented and the beds are simply asking you to sink into them after a tiring day out and about holidaying.

After a quick coffee and a refreshing shower in the morning, you’re good to go and ready to hit the beach.

Southwold beach is just a few minutes away and a great place to while away time, so why not pack a picnic and make a day of it?

Other towns nearby worth visiting include Aldeburgh, Orford, Saxmundham and Walberswick or jump in the car and head out further afield to attractions such as Halesworth Museum, Snape Maltings concert hall, Framlingham Castle, Go Ape Thetford and Yoxford Antiques Centre and Gardens.

If you fancy a walk rewarded with some captivating views along the way, then pay a visit to Suffolk Coast and Heaths which has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, but make sure you take your camera!

Offering a delightful bolthole in the heart of the popular seaside village of Southwold, Garden Cottage offers an immaculately-presented holiday haven.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
