Close to both the centre of Southwold, on South Green and, at the same time, seconds from the beach. Views across South Green to the sea from one of the town`s most desirable properties. A "good old fashioned" seaside holiday can be had at this house in Southwold.
Southwold is not a resort in the accepted flashy sense, but a charming quiet town that happens to be at the sea.
Full details, contact and rates, are on the house`s own site and (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN).
Sole Bay Cottage occupies a prime position on South Green, in Southwold, Suffolk. Offering views of the sea and central access to town the cottage is also neighbour to the Red Lion public house.
Because of the house`s location it is only fair to point out that despite accommodating a lot of people the house is not suitable for large groups of young people who want somewhere to "party". Southwold is a quiet town and people holiday there for exactly that reason. We have had complaints from neighbours and even the pub next door. If we receive any such complaints again we will evict the group immediately with no financial recompense - the opposite will apply as we will claim for extra cleaning, as has been the case recently.
The house provides ample accommodation for up to 10 persons. Bed linen (Duvet covers, pillow cases and sheets) is provided in the price, but towels are not.
Subject to availability it might be possible to rent a friend's beach hut to coincide with bookings. The hut is located on the promenade just steps to the beach and has kitchenette and storage space for seaside fun.
On the ground floor of Sole Bay Cottage you will find the sitting room, separate dining room seating 12, full kitchen with full size fridge/freezer, dishwasher, gas hob, electric oven with extract fan, microwave, dishwasher and another built in fridge. Additional to the over-hob extractor is a powerful Vent-Axia fan. At the rear is a shower room and a separate WC.
On the first floor there are three double bedrooms (one with washbasin) and a single bedroom with balcony overlooking the green with sea views. You need to walk through one double room (the "TV Room") to get to the shower room and bathroom. The utility room has a washing machine and tumble drier and sink unit.
The basement room has 3 single beds.
There is full gas central heating with instant hot water.
There are two colour TVs, with TV points in most rooms, a DVD/CD player and radio.
A travel cot is also provided.
The interior is painted entirely in pale ochre, blues and white with strong colours gained from the upholstery of the furniture, cushions and Oriental rugs throughout all the rooms. The furniture is almost all of light timbers, Oak and Beech, giving a casual and relaxing feel. There is a rear area that is great for storing bicycles or beach gear. The house is one of only a few in Southwold with access to the beach without needing to cross a road.
Southwold is the perfect destination in any season. Well known as a relaxing resort for the summer, it is in the other seasons that it really comes into its own. Surrounded by rolling countryside, it is here that a true glimpse of Suffolk is to be had. Farming is still carried out on a more traditional scale in the area, as well as Reed beds in the marsh areas, with all the sights and sounds we expect of farming countryside. The activities and landscape change with the months but the colourful villages continue to nestle peacefully in their hollows. The wood smoke rises vertically from the chimneys as the sun sets in the late Autumn afternoons and the only sounds to be heard are the birds calling as they return to their nests. Returning to Southwold, the rhythmic rise and fall of the waves on the beach muffles all background noise - there is nothing more peaceful - and the delights of the pubs and restaurants beckon for the evening.
Southwold, is ten miles south of Lowestoft and not far from Aldeburgh. Formerly a busy fishing port, it is now known for its clean beaches, colourful beach huts and the lighthouse standing in the town. It is also the home of Adnams` brewery. Elegant and unspoilt, its brick, flint and colour-washed houses stand round the seven Greens. Life continues at the leisurely pace it has over the years and the local fishermen supply the pubs and restaurants with fresh fish from their huts at the nearby harbour.

Outside the house is space for parking two cars. The space is, technically, ours, but is also part of the Queen`s Highway. The landlord of the neighbouring pub often parks there, as do members of his staff, but they will move the cars when asked politely. Parking, free, is available on South Green, a matter of metres away.
Our neighbours, on the other side, are old and have a designated Disabled parking space. We would ask you to respect their space and access, thank you.
We provide a professionally cleaned house for our tenants and expect them to clean as best they can before leaving.
We do not allow smoking or pets on the premises. We cannot deviate from this policy.
All terms and conditions will be sent to prospective tenants.
