Property details

Bovis Cottage is located on Barnaby Green, just off the High Street in Southwold. There is an open-plan living and dining area at the front of the cottage with the kitchen at the back. The bathroom is off the utility area downstairs and has a bath with shower over, wash basin and wc. At the back of the house there is a small sun room and garden which gets the afternoon sunlight. There is garden furniture available for use.
The cottage has a number of features which date back to when it was built and the property is grade II listed. The staircase is spiral and leads up to a landing and the main bedroom. The bedroom has plenty of storage space and a window looking out onto Barnaby Green. The second bedroom is on the second floor, in the eaves and makes a charming, cosy room for children. There are twin single beds and storage on the landing.
The cottage has parking for one car to the side along Spinner's Lane – a real bonus for Southwold. Further parking is available on the common. The rear garden can be accessed via a right of way through two other gardens from Spinner's Lane but there is no right of way past Bovis Cottage and the rear garden is enclosed. This makes it a great space to be able to bring your dog for a holiday too. Spinner's Lane has direct access out onto the common and down to the harbour.

Please note that the stairs may not be suitable for young children as they are steep and winding.

Surrounding local area

Southwold is a great place to stay whether you are coming for a long weekend or a longer stay, as a family or a couple. Bovis Cottage is perfectly situated so you can enjoy the town and surrounding countryside without having to use your car. The High Street is only a short distance away and there are lots of independent shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs to try.
Southwold is home to Adnams and you can arrange a tour of the brewery or distillery and head to one of the numerous pubs in the town afterwards to sample the beer. Alongside some fine restaurants there are some smaller delicatessens and food shops. The Two Magpies Bakery has some yummy treats, the cheese scones are delicious and if you have worked up an appetite with a brisk walk to Walberswick you might be tempted.
Heading further afield than Southwold, you can take the foot ferry over the River Blyth to Walberswick. There are some lovely walks in the area which allow you to experience the beautiful countryside or head to the harbour and try your hand at some crabbing.
There are numerous bird and wildlife watching opportunities. The area sits within the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. RSPB Minsmere is further south along the coast and for the more active it is possible to walk from Walberswick to Dunwich and onto to Eastbridge, where the reserve is located.
If you fancy exploring more of the area, you can head inland to visit a number of market towns such as Framlingham or Woodbridge and discover more of the history of the area including visiting the Castle in Framlingham or the Saxon Burial ground at Sutton Hoo.
Beccles and Bungay are on the edge of the Broads National Park which is home to some of the country’s rarest plants and animals. There are opportunities to explore the waterways with a guided tour or hire your own boat and explore at your own pace.
Having been out and about, at the end of the day you can return to the peace and quiet of Bovis Cottage. The cottage location means that it is away from the hustle and bustle of life so you can truly relax but it is a quick step to enjoy all that Southwold has to offer.

Welcome hamper included

A complimentary hamper will be awaiting you on your arrival containing milk, tea, fresh coffee, bread, butter, eggs, juice, wine and cheese, along with other essential items to prepare a light snack or breakfast. There may be some regional variations.
