Briar Patch

Dogs: 2

Sleeps: 8

Briar Patch is an attractive brick built, property with a fabulous interior. Deceptively spacious accommodation with two ground floor bedrooms and a further two bedrooms on the first floor. The perfect for choice 8 guests.

The property has a fabulous interior… stylish and contemporary, comfortable, light and welcoming - just the ticket to recharge your batteries and spend some quality time in the beautiful Suffolk seaside town of Southwold.  The open plan living, dining and kitchen area is stunning with French doors leading out onto the garden, a lovely sociable space for everyone to relax. The living area has a wood burning stove which makes Briar Patch a great option for an out of season break with the family or friends. Outside there’s a patio with wooden table and chairs, great for a little alfresco dining.

The property is in a tucked away location yet within easy reach of the beach and shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants…  so there’s no excuse to treat yourself to a coffee and cake!

Stroll along the prom to the pier, a prominent landmark in Southwold. Stop off at one of the pubs and lunch or a quick pint, alternatively visit one of the lovely delis, grocers or bakers and pack up a picnic. 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.
