Durrants Cottage of the Year – Bronze Award Winner 2022
This award is based on feedback scores provided by guests during 2022. Feedback covers such aspects as facilities, decor and cleanliness.
This sweet and charming cottage is a real treat for a twosome looking for a central place to stay in Southwold. Carefully and lovingly furnished using soft pastel colours, natural materials and seaside inspired art and accessories, the owners have created a wonderful coastal home-from-home.
Although small, this cottage does not want for anything. The sitting room has a wonderful fireplace with electric woodburner effect fire whilst the window-side dining table and chairs is perfect for a romantic dinner for two. The kitchen boasts all the necessary appliances and gadgets to prepare meals during your stay, although with Southwold’s pubs, restaurants and cafes on your doorstep why make work for yourself? To the back of the property is a small courtyard with bistro table and chairs, perfect for a pre-dinner glass of Adnams Prosecco.
Upstairs there’s one bedroom with a heavenly king size ‘Japanese floating bed’ set in front of a calming feature wall. There’s a well thought out dressing corner with shelving and a mirror, plus ample space for your luggage. The luxurious marble shower room has a large walk-in shower, vanity unit and WC.
The accommodation is not the only sweet thing about Angel Cottage – just next door you’ll find Harris and James, a popular gelato and coffee shop where you’ll be spoilt for choice for delicious treats including their sugary churros. The Nelson Inn, the beach and the High Street are also just a few paces away.
As the sign in the courtyard says, Angel Cottage really is “a small house with a big welcome”.
