Number Six, Southwold

Cottage details


Situated in one of Southwold’s prime locations, number six is a beautiful, individual property set behind a picket fence on East Cliff, with uninterrupted views of the sandy beach, the Pier and The Harbour.  The former Harbour Pilot’s lodge, which later became an artist’s retreat, has been in the same family for over 100 years and its unique character has been preserved by the current generation of the family with many of the original features and artefacts throughout.

The property is ideal for individuals, couples or a small family, and for flexibility a double sofa-bed has been provided in the Living Room.  You can’t help but find yourself relaxing as soon as you take in the views, and ever present sounds of the sea, from the front door and every room of the property.  This location provides easy access to the beach, the Pier, the Boating Lake and the Harbour. The bustling High Street with all the amenities of the boutique shops, restaurants, cafes and award-winning pubs are all within an easy walk.

Entrance: The verandah provides the entrance to the white-washed and well-appointed Living Room which benefits from a sofa and love-seat, sofa-bed, coffee table, book shelves, TV with Freeview, DVD player, decorative fireplace with electric 'wood-burner'.

Kitchen Diner: The kitchen has an electric oven and hob, fridge with freezer compartment, dishwasher, microwave and dining table and chairs.

Bedroom: The bedroom, with views over the sea at the front and Southwold Pier to the north, has a king-size bed, built in wardrobe, chest of drawers, armchair and bedside tables and lamps. A hair dryer is provided and there is space for a cot.

Bathroom: The sizeable bathroom has a bath with an over-bath shower, washbasin, WC and heated towel rail.

Parking: A car can be unloaded next to the cottage at the end of the terrace where there are also 3 parking bays that are classed as ‘on-street parking’.  There is further on street parking available on North Parade and throughout the town.

Garden:  A secluded courtyard catches the afternoon sun at the back of the property making this small, sheltered area a delightful place to sit later in the day - the perfect spot for an intimate drink.

Pets: Yes - one small dog welcome
