Property details

Consisting of two custom-built beach houses, located side by side without actually being joined, the Watch Houses are contemporary properties designed to blend in with their natural surroundings.

Located in a secluded and stunning Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Watch Houses boast one of Suffolk’s most peaceful locations. Both properties enjoy totally unspoilt views – one in the direction of Covehithe, while the other looks out towards Southwold’s iconic pier - with only a low-lying cliff-edge and a near-private beach separating you from the sea.

Recently finished to an exacting standard, each property is of the same design, comfortably sleeping four in two double bedrooms. All the bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms and the two bedrooms in each property are linked by a modern sitting/dining area.

The Watch Houses are a mere 5-minute cycle ride or 15-minute walk on a private track from the charming seaside town of Southwold with its iconic beach huts, lighthouse and pier. It is also possible to drive along this track directly into Southwold town.

Built for comfort, location and awe-inspiring views, The Watch Houses are perfect for two families wanting to holiday together, whilst enjoying a small degree of separation, or for a larger family gathering. Each property is also available to rent separately, The Watch Room and The Listening House.

Surrounding local area

With a beautiful, secluded beach on your doorstep, an easy walk or cycle into Southwold, lovely coastal walks and amazing birdlife just outside your windows, this really has to be the perfect place to enjoy all that Southwold has to offer whilst giving guests the peace and seclusion in which to really relax.

Southwold has some great places to eat whether you are looking for a tasty snack or a more substantial meal or fish and chips. Try the Two Magpies Bakery for coffee and a snack or The Crown and The Swan both have menus featuring fresh, seasonal and local produce.

Further afield from Southwold there are some wonderful places to explore. If you enjoy walking head towards Dunwich and Minsmere and the stunning coastal and heathlands. There are lots of opportunities for bird and wildlife watching. Snape Maltings hosts a huge variety of events, from the Snape Proms in August to the Food and Drink Festival. The Maltings is worth visiting and there are some beautiful walks along the Alde estuary.

Staying at The Watch Rooms allows you to have a peaceful and relaxing break. There is truly a sense of being able to get away from it all but with the benefit of Southwold and all its diversions only a short distance away.
