Southwold is a great destination and there are plenty of country walks around it. Good local places to visit are The Pier, Walderswick, Aldeburgh, Snape Maltings, Dunwich Beach, Dunwich Heath. The Southwold Lighthouse is worth a tour after which you can spend your voucher on a pint of Adnams in The Sole Bay Inn. If you don't like Adnams you are out of luck!

Mr K,

All the above I wrote is true and sounds rather damning. However, I do think this property can be made more comfortable with the suggestions I have made to the owners. A king sized bed with a comfortable mattress would be ideal. The location is great for Southwold and there is a lovely view from the lounge with some stunning sunsets.

Mrs M,

Great location ideal for the town and amenities. A good base to explore the surrounding area. Southwold has great eating places but in high season may get very busy. If parking needed to be shared this could present a problem. Overall we would recommend this property.

Mr B,

Far View One is an extremely well-equipped ,well-appointed ground-floor flat in a delightful location.

Miss R,

A superb apartment in a great location. Comfortable, clean, well equipped, with amazing art works. Wonderful view from the large bay window across the garden and the common beyond. Convenient for the town, harbour and sea front. A car parking space is an added bonus. Would certainly recommend this accommodation.

Mrs E,

This property was the perfect setting to relax and well situated for going out and about. A beautiful flat, well appointed, comfortable and with a fabulous view over the common. Will definitely be coming again.

Mrs R,

This is a very good property for a couple in Southwold. My only real gripe was the two ring hob.This was pretty limiting even for the simple meal preparation that we used it for.There is plenty of room for a standard hob so this seems an odd decision. I would certainly be happy to book this property again.

Mr David W,

We had a lovely time. Accommodation comfortable, clean and equipped with everything needed. We hope to return.
