Petrel Cottage, Southwold

Cottage details


Petrel Cottage is in a tucked away spot yet moments away from the hustle and bustle of central Southwold. This charming cottage is deceptively spacious with accommodation spread over three floors. The owners have cleverly transformed Petrel Cottage into a cottage which appeals to both couples and families with small children. The open plan sitting room and dining area is a lovely space where you can socialise together and the brilliant design of the small kitchen area provides you with all necessities desired for a self-catering break.

Holidaying at Petrel Cottage gives you a fantastic base from which you can explore Southwold and everything this coastal gem offers. At the end of the road you’ll find the popular Red Lion pub serving local Adnams Ales and food with a great ambience. Just a couple of minutes’ walk across the picturesque South Green takes you to the seafront where beachside fun awaits or head towards the High Street and enjoy a spot of retail therapy. The glorious green Common is also within easy reach and perfect for some quiet time reading a book and watching the world go by.
