    A real seaside gem.

    A real seaside gem. Plenty of pubs (but they do get busy in the season) shops and a long beach with a pier. The afternoon tea at the Swan I would declare the best I've ever had. The adnams brewery and distillary tours are worth doing if of interest. A place of charm, pleasent walks, slowly drunk coffees and letting the world slow down a bit.

    We were out of season and some cafes closed at 3pm which we weren’t expecting but several restaurants, pubs and cafes in the town centre. The pier arcade was open and you could have a tour of the lighthouse plus the brewery. We walked to Walberswick (no ferry available until April) and some nice cafes there too! Lovely sandy beach and lots of nice fish dishes to eat along with many different Adnams beverages!

    It was a great place to visit.

    It was a great place to visit. Southwold in it self is quite small. There were a number of different jobs and local landmarks to visit which we enjoyed. Car parking prices were reasonable. Despite some places were closed, we still made the most of it and enjoyed our visit. There were definitely sufficient food places to choose from which were quite happy with. The shops were varied between local shops and bigger branded shops. The landmarks we visited were good too. You could probably see most of Southwold within a day. If everything was open and it was in the summer time, you would probably need more than a day to visit every inch of Southwold.

    Never stayed in the Blyth Hotel before so was pleased to find it was dog friendly. The breakfast was good, the fish pie was lovely and it felt very relaxed and informal. Room felt uncluttered but warm and cosy, We usually stay in The Swan but they don't take dogs. Also the reception staff were unhelpful when trying to book afternoon tea for one of our days, saying the kitchen would be closed. Walking past the kitchen looked pretty much open judging by the number of people that were in there. Make your own conclusions on that one but I doubt they will have much of our custom in the future. Also try the Sole Bay Inn, dog friendly and good beer and food - you can't book in advance for grub. Bear in mind this is Feb so the Pier was completely closed until the season opens.

    Southwold is lovely and picturesque, atmosphere is like going back in time. All the shops and staff were friendly, welcoming and helpful. We stayed and ate in the crown, highly recommended. We also ate at Coasters which again was perfect and highly recommended. You can walk around Southwold, no need for transport. Lovely, welcoming town with plenty to do in the winter months. The beach walk we took was peaceful and relaxing. We felt completely relaxed and rejuvenated upon our return home. Advice is to book your evening meals before you arrive, we witnessed many people not being able to book tables obviously because everyone wants to eat in the lovely hotels and restaurants, there is also a lovely fish and chip shop who cook to order should you not be able to book a table so no one goes hungry. Lunchtime is an ideal time to visit the many bakers to have a cuppa and lovely fresh snacks. The Sailors library is a must visit

    Very nice small town on the coast. Very nice beach. Lots of small local shops with wide selection of products and very good prices. Nice beach and good selection of restaurants and eating/snacking establishments. Local brewery has great selection of local craft beers in all establishments.

    We stayed in squirrel. Lovely accommodation, small kitchen and sitting area and bathroom downstairs then lovely bedroom upstairs. Our daughter stayed on camp bed. Small seating area outside, has beautiful gardens surrounding. Great breakfast one morning (extra). Everything was very good, very welcoming, great advice on places to go. Really good location, short drive into Southwold but good spot for travelling further down coast - we also visited Aldeburgh, Orford and Snape.

    After an initial confusion about which door to get in (we realised we were trying to open the cupboard!) we managed to get into the flat, and it was beautiful. Every comfort imaginable. The host was excellent and sorted out a couple of queries immediately even though it was a Saturday night. I would highly recommend the flat, right in the centre of beautiful Southwold.

    Everything….the cleanliness, location, food were great! Also nice and quiet. However, I didn’t realize we were getting the small room, my reservation led me to believe we had the garden room. But as I mentioned, the more important aspects of the room/hotel were great!

    Although the hotel is in central Southwold, our front bedroom was nicely quiet as it was out of season. Very comfortable, with helpful local staff good menu and a nice atmosphere. Only a short walk to the sea front and walks along the beach.
