About this listing

Our lovely Suffolk home welcomes visitors from near and far, young and old. Avocet is a 3 bedroom family house with large rear garden and views to the coast, in a quiet residential area on the edge of Southwold. Within walking distance of town, harbour, sea, pubs and local shops. Enjoy local off-road walks, via the marshes and along the dykes, seeing wildlife and scenery along the way. Within easy driving distance are Snape Maltings, RSPB Reserve at Minsmere and other areas of natural beauty.

The space

Suffolk pink on the outside, Avocet's interior space has wooden floors, is decorated throughout in light coastal colours and is comfortably furnished. Our home from home, it is great for families and guests and has good size communal and private spaces in which to enjoy their stay. Here you also get the best of both worlds: easy access to town and beach but somewhere to escape to when the "bustle" gets too much. You'll be free from the Southwold's parking worry - as our drive space can accommodate 2 cars. It's also a great place for a long weekend with friends and loved ones, for nature lovers and for those attending the many festivals and events in Suffolk throughout the year.

Guest access

You will have the run of the house and the garden front and back.

Interaction with guests

We are not on hand to welcome you in person but you will find a free welcome pack downstairs and complimentary towels on your beds awaiting you on arrival. We have lovely neighbours nearby and the support of Danielle who supervises our cleaning and laundry and can swiftly deal with such issues as may arise. Tish is also available on the phone/text messaging for problem solving and advice.

Other things to note

a small well-behaved dog may be allowed with advanced notice with a small extra charge. There is off street parking for two cars ( a BIG plus especially in the summer months) , a free welcome basket and towels will be provided for each guest. There are plenty of books, guide books and games and a garden table and chairs for 8-10 people out on the back patio. A couple of sun loungers can be accessed on request!

Fabulous location, an easy 10/15 minute walk into beautiful Southwold. Tish is a great host, nothing was too much trouble and she is incredibly communicative. The house itself is very well equipped and there is plenty of room for everyone. It's rather eclectic, mixes of old furniture, needs some work to bring it up to date but value for money in Southwold it can't be knocked! Very clean and we had such a great stay at Avocet creating treasured memories before our little one goes to school.

Great location to explore Southwold and the rest of Suffolk. Super quiet residential location, parking space a real bonus in such a limited town for parking. Beach and shops v accessible. Lovely rural walks to the beach avoiding roads. Gorgeous sandy beach in walking distance. House is great, everything you need. Tish is a thoughtful and responsive host.

The house was spacious and comfortable with lots of character. We really appreciated the welcome pack and found the location just right for a stroll into Southwold and a longer walk to Walberswick. The house is on a quiet street and the parking is on a driveway in front of the house. We had a great stay and would come back.

Tish's house is a traditional pink house for the area. It was very clean and comfortable. Tish was easily contactable and a great host. We would definitely stay again!
