Practical, homely and super-stylish Pipe Down Cottage is nestled on a quiet street overlooking a pretty green, close to the centre of Southwold. This roomy holiday cottage is well-suited to two couples or a family with young children and has been tastefully furnished throughout with a subtle nod to the seaside. It’s pet-friendly too, welcoming one well-behaved dog.

Downstairs, the stylish and welcoming sitting room leads through to an inviting dining area with a large dining table and chairs and fabulous dressers laden with coastal trinkets. (We just love the oil lamp effect wall lights.) From the dining area are double doors out to the conservatory, a lovely place for a bit of quiet time or even an afternoon snooze. Preparing meals at Pipe Down Cottage is a breeze in its superbly appointed galley style kitchen – you’ll find everything for a simple life here. There’s also a utility area with washing machine and tumble dryer and a downstairs shower room, perfect for rinsing the sand away after a busy day at the beach.

Upstairs are two elegant bedrooms, one with a double and the other with a king size bed, plus a cosy bunk room suitable for young children. The family bathroom is very spacious and boasts a shower cubicle, bath, basin and WC.

Outside there is a pretty rear garden in which to enjoy a touch of outdoor dining.

  • A lovely holiday home with everything you need for a comfortable stay, We've been stating in Southwold for many years and this is one of the best we've stayed in. It was really nice to sit in the garden and enjoy lunch whilst the sun shone-thank you.

  • We really appreciated that the kitchen had some basics such as tea, coffee and sugar. Things like kitchen roll and cling film were just excellent. There is nothing worse that going away for a week only to have to pack everything but the kitchen sink. The house was just fabulous, really clean, warm and welcoming. We also really appreciated the welcome gift. We have stayed many many times in Southwold, we have a yearly retreat, Pipedown is without a doubt the very best property we have stayed in. The location is just perfect, we are already looking to book for next year.

  • My wife and I have stayed in a number of rental properties in Southwold in recent years and Pipe Down Cottage is by far the best. It's extremely well appointed. We have already booked a full week's stay there later this year. No improvement needed, whatsoever. It's always a delight to book through Durrants.

  • The cottage itself and the location were both fabulous. Couldn’t have asked for more, really! Tastefully decorated, very well equipped, well maintained, all in all a lovely place to spend our holiday. Very glad it’s dog friendly too! Our experience with Durrants was positive and we’d recommend them over their larger competitors.

  • What a wonderful holiday home. We had a brilliant holiday. Pipe Down Cottage was the best holiday cottage we’ve ever stayed in. The house was beautiful. I would like to mirror the decor in my own home. Location is great. The house was spotless. Everything in the house has been thought out. I loved the bedside lights in the bunk beds and the house felt luxurious. We’ve already booked for next year!

  • We really liked the position of Pipe Down Cottage. We had come for the Arts Festival and it was perfectly placed for access to the theatre and Church. It was also an easy walk to the beach and very close to the shops. We didn't need to use the car at all! The cottage had recently been decorated so everything was lovely and fresh and nicely done. It was well equipped in all areas. We had a lovely week and were sad to have to come home.
