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