“Amazing wheelchair accessible B&B, loved it, thank you”
Reviewed 8 July 2011

Thank you Penny and David for your hospitality, delicious breakfasts, beautiful home and garden, all fully accessible, 5 minutes in the car from the sea front. My husband is a wheelchair user but all our needs were met in your accomodation....(we could have used your pool because a hoist is available, but we didn't have the time).....thank you. I can't honestly say anything bad about our stay with you except I never did get a cuddle from your beautiful cat xx Lots of love hopefully see you again. This is a B&B for all the family that is open to all, even those who have mobility problems !!

Room Tip: Just tell them what you want/need as they are more than happy to make your stay as pleasant as they...

Newlands is an excellent guest house, just on the periphery of beautiful Southwold. It distinguishes itself well from the many other B&B and hotel offerings in the area with its well-proportioned pool, which is available for guests to use each day between 2pm and 8pm, as well as for early morning, pre-breakfast swims. The place was well-occupied when we went, but we nonetheless had time alone in the pool, since this was obviously not the key attraction for all guests. Presumably they were appealed to by Newlands' other virtues of spotlessly clean, comfortable rooms and a good welcome by hosts David and Penny. They might also keep coming back for the excellent breakfast, which was sumptuous and plentiful in equal measure. We stayed in Room 2, which is their premium room, and worth the expense for its size, comfort and splendid whirlpool bath.

Some people may quibble with Newlands' location, and it's worth being aware that it is a one mile walk into Southwold Town Centre. However, in the good weather, this is a very pleasant stroll, along a reasonably well-lit street. We walked into town (in preference to driving, so I could enjoy a pint of Adnam's famous ale - Southwold brewed) in the evening, and ate at an Adnam's pub, The Crown. It is one of a set of twins - its counterpart being posher and more formal in the shape of The Swan. We'd certainly recommend the food at The Crown, which is not cheap but isn't outrageously expensive in comparative terms for the area, and was all excellent. The walk back gives you an opportunity to work off the excess you'll certainly incur if you enjoy any of their delicious desserts! Or, if it's raining, there are cab numbers available in all the many free "Guide to Southwold" booklets around. Since it is only a mile, the fare cannot be much.

In all, a definite hit, and particularly worthwhile if you will make use of Newlands' excellent pool.

Room Tip: Room 2 gets you a whirlpool bath!

This is a brilliant place to stay, rooms are large and clean, breakfast is of a very high standard and the indoor swimming pool is great insurance against the British weather.

We had a lovely two nights at Newlands the rooms were spotlessly clean, both my mother and myself were on disabled scooters, the garden rooms were very well kitted out for the disabled, the breakfasts were superb and the hostess was lovely from one landlady to another good job

Room Tip: Excellent disabled facilities

The hotel was clean and caterered for 3 old school freinds with 3 small children. The pool was very welcomed and free to use.
The hotel was clean, breakfast wonderful and you even get use of fridge,microwave.
can't wait to go back, felt we where visiting a friends house rather than a hotel.

We had an excellent stay in this wonderful B&B and Penny couldn't have been any more welcoming.

We had one of the garden rooms, which was lovely and warm despite it being a freezing cold day when we arrived. The bathroom too was large, like a wetroom, well designed for disabled travellers who could take a shower whilst seated. Not only did we have tea and coffee making facilities in the room but Penny laid on fresh milk for guests as well which you could help yourself to from the fridge.

The breakfast was delicious and sufficient to fortify us for the day ahead. The sausages were particularly nice. The dining room tables were beautifully laid.

The real bonus was the pool. We're real Goldilocks-like when it comes to pools. Most upmarket hotels' pools are too cold because swimming is supposed to be a workout, and most municipal pools are too hot and over chlorinated. The Newlands' pool was none of these. It was just right!

Overall we were impressed at how spotlessly clean everything was and the little touches that make a stay so pleasant.

Finally, Penny was a mine of information on where to go and what to do in the region. She was ever cheerful and obviously has bags of energy and enthusiasm for what she does.
