“Can't wait to go back”
Reviewed June 25, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Stayed here recently with a mixed age group of family and we all loved it. The two living rooms are ideal when someone wanted some quiet time. The rooms were all perfect with lots of space in them. The kitchen had everything you needed, and welcome pack was a nice touch. The location was also perfect, we did not want to leave. Will hopefully be coming back soon.

“Good quality house in great location, but here are some points to note...”
Reviewed June 20, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

people found this review helpful

This is clearly a good quality holiday house for all of the reasons set out in the other reviews on this site, which I would agree with. However, as good as it is, there are a few points to note, especially if like us you are travelling as a large family group.

The top floor of the property is advertised as a "family suite". What the detailed listing doesn't make clear is that the stairs up to this attic floor come straight up into the twin room, and there is no stair gate. Furthermore the only opening window in the room - other than the double doors onto the roof level balcony) is a sash window at just above floor level which opens out directly onto the garage roof (and it gets pretty hot in the attic, so if it's sunny, you'll need the ventilation...). So this is not a room you could leave small children in unsupervised, making it unsuitable as a "family room".

It is also a pity that both of the rooms in the "family suite" have huge glazed double doors covered only by the thinnest, cream curtains. As these both face east towards the morning sun, it means that both rooms get the full force of the sun at 4.30am in the summer making it difficult for adults to lie in, and pretty much impossible for toddlers. As others had suggested in the guestbook at the property, blackout blinds (or at least heavier curtains) really are required in these rooms.

Don't get me wrong, this is a great property for large groups, in an excellent location and I would recommend it, but families with small children should be aware of the drawbacks with this top floor!

“Luxurious, modern, well equipped house on edge of Southwold town”
Reviewed June 3, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This luxurious modern house offered every comfort beyond our expectation. Beds were comfy with en suites and the well equipped kitchen/diner catered for our large group. A large patio dining table and chairs housed us all to enjoy a BBQ. The lawn provided space for cricket and other ball games for the 7 grandchildren and adults. The house was a very short distance from the town and the Adnams shop was a stones throw away. The under floor heating made this extra special property very cosy. I highly recommend a stay in this delightful house and town.

“Lovely House, Lovely Location”
Reviewed May 9, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Arrived on the Friday for the bank holiday weekend in May and couldn't believe how nice the house and the location was. It was so easy to stroll to the beach, Adnams brewery, shops and pubs/restaurants for all of us including 2 pushchairs. The house provided plenty of space for all 15 of us (and 5 cars!) and the facilities available were perfect with plenty of cutlery and crockery which allowed us not to have to be constantly washing up - although a few pint glasses would have been nice. Decor throughout was good and clean. We would love to stay here again, especially with Southwold being such a nice place - the weather for us was good so we weren't trapped in the house, if we had been the children might have gotten a bit bored - but I think that would be the same staying in any house. Perhaps some sort of music player in the kitchen/dining area would have been good - can't think of anything that could have improved our stay.

“second stay as wonderful as first!”
Reviewed March 8, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Back for second stay - house as great as I remembered it. Perfect house for large family as plenty of space but also so stylish and comfortable and extremely well managed - all the family said it was the best holiday house they have stayed in. Southwold itself is also perfect place for all ages in an extended family.

“best house in Southwold”
Reviewed March 4, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

After researching many properties , we were lucky to find this luxurious modern home full of all mod cons and finished to a beautiful high standard, We were a family group of 15 celebrating a special 3oth birthday. We could not fault anything what so ever. The welcoming gifts that had been arranged for us set the scene for the weekend. Everyone without exception enjoyed every part of the property and all it's amenities. It is so well furnished and we left not wanting for anything we could need even including some reading glasses next to the cookery books ! Its an absolute credit to the owners who have made it as a wonderful home for others to enjoy. The town and beach is only 10 minute walk and easy to find plenty to do and see here. . Each room was individually designed and a great deal of thought had gone into all the little touches.We realised we had accidently tidied up and put away in the games cupboard some card games we had brought with us. I sent an email to ask if they wouldn't mind posting back to us and within 2 days they had very kindly sent them to us which was really generous- thank you We would highly recommend this to anyone and we would certainly love to come back.

“Family Fun”
Reviewed February 3, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Just returned from a week with ten family members. We'll equipped & very spacious premises. Let down on trivia really, no extra toilet roll in en suite , just a half roll probably left by previous occupants? Door of "Lighthouse " room stuck if shut firmly.
Beautiful flowers , on arrival, but no chocolates & wine as stated by other guests!!
Brilliant Living Space for Large Family " get togethers "
