  • "The property was immaculately clean and as beautiful as pictures suggested."

    Location too was just perfect. The roof top terrace was a delight and I really felt that the property made a perfect base for us to explore Southwold and the surrounding areas The only things that were irksome were: 1/ lack of information re green and yellow lighting gadget. Also the crew preparing the flat for our let should have noticed the gadget wasn't where it ought to be and left a note for us about it. When I phoned Sykes office the following day to say I'd not been able to.put on these lights someone described the gadget and I found it in the drawer. 2/ lack of information about how to use DVD player thru the TV. Altho in the event a local man was sent by Sykes and discovered some wiring had not been properly set up info would have been useful from the owner. I also think as part of the property prep for new lets this should be checked by Sykes. 3/ a guide for the microwave would have been useful. 4/ the key safe got stuck one time which did cause us panic - but a passing tourist man who knew the lettings came to assist and resolved the problem by a firm hitting of the box. He said sometimes the keys themselves can jam the mechanism

  • "Another excellent holiday in Parrotfish Bay."

    I docked a star from comfort because the bed in the main bedroom caused more aches and pains in our 70 year old bodies than usual and was more of a problem than we remember from our stay in Parrotfish Bay last year. But in all other respects Parrotfish Bay is excellent.

  • "Lovely stay in Southwold at Parrotfish bay , lovely apartment very comfortable and convenient."

    Think the bath could do with a splash screen, and en suite shower needs moveable height shower head , and parasol for outside table . Otherwise perfect Wi-fi code in book needs amending, and also code for bin cupboard .

  • "Parrotfish Bay is a lovely, clean and well equipped property."

    The reasons for only 3 stars - we did not find the settee comfortable and there were drafts from the windows upstairs.

  • "My only issue was the freezer which needed defrosting probably because visitors were not aware how firmly the door needed shutting firmly."

    It was our second stay in this property . We found it extremely clean and well equipped on both occasions. As soon as we walked through the door we felt very relaxed. We especially like the modern open plan design. The accommodation is well situated with fine views especially towards the church

The property

Enjoying a superb setting in the heart of bustling Southwold in Suffolk, Parrotfish Bay is a stylish, contemporary apartment ideal for families or couples on holiday together.

The accommodation has been finished to a high standard and its wonderfully bright and airy creates a real feeling of light and space.

The second-floor living area has a welcoming sitting area with a generous amount of seating and doors leading onto a shared terrace, which is ideal for enjoying a drink or bite to eat alfresco.

When you start to get hungry, then make your way to the well fitted kitchen which comes complete with all you need to be able to produce great food for your whole holiday party.

At mealtimes, you can either serve up at the less formal breakfast bar or pull up a chair at the elegant dining table; both lend themselves to long and lazy meals together.

Both bedrooms are beautifully presented; choose from a king-size or a twin and with a shower and a bath, there won’t be any queues for the bathroom either.

After breakfast and a morning coffee on the terrace, it’s time to get out and about and explore.

Suffolk has so much to offer whether you’re looking for high energy adventure or something more sedate; there is something for everyone.

Take a stroll into delightful Southwold famous for its pier and beach and also home to the well-known Adnams Brewery or head up the coast to Thorpeness which also fantastic beaches; a great spot for a picnic.

Walks, hikes and cycle rides aplenty can be had anywhere in the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with golfing a popular pastime here with clubs found at Southwold, Thorpeness, Halesworth and Beccles, all nearby.

Family attractions include Africa Alive Zoologicial Reserve, Framlingham Castle, Ellough Park Kart Circuit, Go Ape Thetford and Easton Farm Park.
