Reading Room Cottage, Southwold

Cottage details


Just a stone’s throw from the sea, Reading Room Cottage is a charming period cottage in an outstanding position that boasts both sea views and off street parking. This period cottage is located between the renowned Lord Nelson Inn and the historic Sailors Reading Room Museum.

The cottage enjoys wonderful sea views from the sitting room and master bedroom, through the original ornate windows. Packed full of original character features such as the beautiful floor tiles in the kitchen and wood panelling in the dining area, Reading Room Cottage is both warm and welcoming with a quintessential seaside cottage feel. The rear courtyard with garden furniture is ideal for watching the world go by.

The cottage has a cosy sitting room, dining area leading to small kitchen area with contemporary units and worktops. On the first floor there are three good sized bedrooms with the master bedroom benefitting from those wonderful views of the sea.
