Southwold Pier Area - It is often said that nothing changes in Southwold. However, the much-acclaimed pier was rebuilt in 2001 and was the first to be constructed in England in over fifty years. It now fits in well with the painted beach huts, promenade and colourful flower beds. There is a shop, cafes and an alternative amusement arcade there. The selection of properties' hereabouts makes it an ideal location to stay in Southwold if you require quiet accommodation that is also close to the beach, town centre and the many footpaths across the marshes leading you to the less explored areas of the town.

“We stayed at Saxon House with 8 other guests. The house is a perfect size for a group, allowing private bathroom facilities for guests. There are nice spaces in the house to relax in individually or in small numbers. Lovely big table for meals. We had a very happy stay”Nicky - 8th October 2019

Amazing ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Did not want to leave and want to go back. Great bedrooms, lovely furnishings and beddings - so close to the pier and sea. Incredible - 6th March 2019
We all loved it and hope to return next year. It was just great for my family four generations 85 to 5 months. The fact that we all had ensuite bathrooms was a real bonus. Plenty of crockery and large serving dishes. Lovely white bed linen. - 27th February 2019

A great house for a large family group in a fab location. Really close to beach and town and also the lovely Aldeburgh and Thorpness. Ms Sarah Haws - 5th March 2018
The property really was lovely and we had a lovely time, especially as we had a brief couple of days' worth of sunshine. The location, which was so close to the pier was amazing and the children all loved it - this was a pleasant surprise as your website did not emphasise this benefit at all! It was clean and well furnished and the selection of books available was wonderful! Mr John Phillips - 21st February 2018
A comfortable, warm house. Mrs Mary Farrimond - 10th January 2018
Delightful property in a fabulous location, with lots of space for multiple guests. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.Mr Paul Lewis - 3rd October 2017
The property was ideal for our large group. Every room had its own en suite. The dining room was amazing with a table large enough to seat 14! The location of the property couldn't have been better - it was just a matter of yards from the pier. There was ample parking to accommodate all of our group. Mrs Debra Giles - 27th September 2017
Great place to stay, we went with 10 people and we had a spare bedroom. Each bedroom had its own bathroom, even 3 spare bathrooms downstairs. Highly recommend going as it’s in a great location and easy to get to.Thomas Coulson
