Amory House is located on the High Street, right in the centre of the popular seaside town of Southwold. It's close to the many delightful shops, a number of excellent Adnams pubs serving beer fresh from the brewery in town, and all the fine restaurants Southwold has to offer. What's more, Amory House is just a 5-minute walk from the famous pier and sandy beach, with its iconic painted beach huts. The fantastic Southwold Electric Picture Palace is just a short stroll from the house.
The house has been tastefully refurbished to provide excellent accommodation for all the family, with stripped wooden floors in all reception rooms, original Victorian marble fire places, and Victorian tiles in the hall. There is both a comfortable drawing room and a separate sitting room with a log burning stove, TV, DVD and games for the children.
The house also boasts two lovely ground floor bedrooms, with an extra large shower room next door, making it suitable for those with some mobility problems. The spacious kitchen and breakfast room is the true heart of the house; this lovely bright space will draw you out of bed on a sunny morning for a lovely family breakfast around the large table. A paved terrace, with garden furniture and barbecue, makes for wonderful alfresco dining, and the large enclosed rear garden has been planted with shrub-beds and attractive mature trees - just the place for relaxing after a day by the seaside!
Southwold is Suffolk's best known seaside town. Untouched by the eyesores of modernity, it is a firm favourite with locals as well as travellers from afar - and it's not hard to see why. Home to the Adnams brewery, it boasts some of the best pubs (as well as the best beers) in the country. With a constant supply of fresh fish, its restaurants are excellent. Add to this the newly renovated pier, the blue-flag sandy beach and its brightly coloured beach huts, all overlooked by the iconic Southwold lighthouse, and you are in for a treat whatever time of the year you choose to visit.
One of the most desirable holiday destinations in the country, Southwold has become a popular destination for the famous. Often described in the press as 'Hampstead on Sea', it is a frequent backdrop for films and TV dramas - much of the award winning film Iris was shot here. Take a stroll out to the end of the pier and look back at the picture-perfect seafront and you will understand why. A popular haunt for artists and writers such as George Orwell, it is well known for its autumn literary festival and summer theatre.
