This great little property offers contemporary and stylish accommodation for 2 guests in a central location. Southwold is Suffolk’s “go-to” destination… a firm favourite with fabulous restaurants, pubs and stylish shops.

There’s a dining table with bench seats and a couple of comfortable sofas and a TV with DVD player. The living area cleverly converts into a bedroom at night with two extremely comfortable modern stowaway beds  and the separate shower room has a wide double shower. All on one level, this delightful holiday pad is a great option for a couple looking to stay in a central location in this vibrant seaside town. Can be rented with nearby 'Lavender Cottage'  to sleep 6 with 10% discount if both properties are booked together.

The Folly is just off the High Street, perfect for getting out and about and exploring this delightful seaside town by foot - it’s just a short walk to the sea the picturesque pastel beach huts. Stroll along the upper promenade, beautiful at any time of year. The town’s individual shops, cafes, delis and restaurants are all on hand too - perfect for a coffee and cake while indulging in a little retail therapy. A visit to Southwold wouldn’t be complete without heading off to the pier, dating back to the 1900’s, it was originally built as a landing point for the steamships which use to stop off at the town. Don’t forget to visit the lighthouse - this distinctive landmark at the centre of the town has been guiding vessels into the historical harbour since the late 1800’s.

At the end of a busy day, what could be better than relaxing in the private courtyard with a beer or a glass of wine… perfect!

“I booked The Folly so I could join family on holiday. I was staying here alone and it was perfect for one. The property is in a good location very near the high street and a few minutes walk to the beach. The Folly is light & airy. Blinds keep the space private from another holiday property across the yard. There are two pullout beds which are surprisingly comfortable and easy to use. The bathroom is small, but everything works well. The kitchen is fairly well equipped, I must admit I didnt cook many meals. The sitting area is pleasant and the sofas are comfortable too. Everything I needed for a weeks stay. ”

“The Folly is a very comfortable place to stay in the centre of Southwold. It has everything you need to make you feel at home and feels very spacious for the size as it is very well designed.”

“A comfortable modern open plan property situated in the centre of town but surprisingly quiet. Our Christmas break was perfect in wonderful Southwold. Upon arrival we found a pleasant surprise: a Christmas tree, panettone and a bottle of champagne; a kind gesture.”

“The Folly was as described on the website close to town and amenities, very comfortable clean and tidy.”

“Ideal location with parking, close to town and the beach. Private outside patio area. Home from home well equipped premises. Fold away beds are ideal and no problem to put away daily. Would definitely stay at the Garden studio again.”
