Right in the heart of Southwold, close to the lighthouse, Tall Cottage is a fabulous period holiday home on the Suffolk coast with shops, cafes, pubs and of course the beach all within reach!

This traditional red brick holiday property is recently renovated… think window shutters, stripped wood floors and period fireplaces with a touch of elegance and you’re on the right track. Tall Cottage offers outstanding self catering holiday accommodation over three floors with six beautiful bedrooms and three contemporary bathrooms. There’s a well fitted kitchen and a lovely bright sitting room with large table and benches, a couple of soft leather sofas and period fireplace. Tall Cottage is a great option for families or friends looking to escape and spend a few days on holiday in Southwold. There’s something for everyone - with the beach virtually on the doorstep, the iconic lighthouse nearby and the popular Sole Bay Inn just a short stroll away… perfect for dinner.

We thought the property was outstanding and wish we had found it when the children were younger as it was so well equipped (better than at home) and near the beach. Which meant coming back for anything was easy. Even having the courtyard sun trap to enjoy our lunch outside was a bonus. Mrs Wendy Jenkins - 30th April 2019
Tall Cottage was beautifully decorated, well stocked and large enough for a big family gathering whilst having enough room for peaceful retreats and comfort for all. Close to the Sole Bay Inn that was pleasant and served nice food, close to both the shops, the pier for the kids and the beach just around the corner. We love Southwold and loved this house. We'll definitely be back here! - 26th February 2019
A lovely house. Ideally situated. Mr TIM MORRIS - 8th January 2019

A lovely cottage in a great location. We were 5 adults and 5 children and the accommodation was perfect for our needs. J Dunne - 17th September 2017
We loved the property and Southwold. The property was so lovely and very comfortable for 9 of us. It was very well equipped - more than adequate. Suffolk Secrets gave a great service and everything ran very smoothly. Mrs S Miller - 22nd March 2017

Lovely house and perfect for a family Christmas. We’ll be back.Ms J Rackham
