About Durrants Holiday Cottages

Our experience of offering holiday cottages benefits from over 100 years of trading history and a longstanding association with the area.

Durrants are the original holiday cottage company for Southwold. We started in 1905 (as HA Adnams), a time when visitors would rent a self-catering property for a season and bring butlers and maids with them in true Downton style.

Times may have changed, but our commitment to maintaining the highest standards certainly hasn't. We want our homeowners to know that their properties are being managed expertly, and we want our guests to have the best holiday possible.

Durrants Holiday Cottages features more than 60 holiday properties in Southwold and the surrounding villages, ranging from traditional seaside cottages and Victorian townhouses through to modern luxury apartments. Courtyard gardens, sea views and beach access - you can find it all with Durrants.

Perfect for families, lots of our properties sleep 4+ and provide essentials like cot hire and high chairs. We also have ideal accommodation for couples looking for a short break or a romantic getaway, perfect to cuddle up and get cosy in front of the fire.

Don't leave your four legged friends at home! Dogs are welcome in a number of our properties, just look out for the paw print logo on each property page or use the Advanced Search function.

For those who love the outdoors, a wealth of coastal and countryside walks, cycle paths and trails are waiting to be explored and RSPB Minsmere is only a short distance away.
