Situated in one of Southwold’s prime locations, Number Six is a beautiful, individual cottage set behind a picket fence on East Cliff with uninterrupted views of the sandy beach, the Pier and Blackshore Harbour. This former Harbour Pilot’s lodge, which later became an artist’s retreat, has been in the same family for over 100 years and its unique character has been preserved by the current generation of the family with many of the original features and artefacts throughout.

Number Six is ideal for individuals, couples or a small family – for flexibility a double sofa bed has been provided in the sitting room. You can’t help but find yourself relaxing as soon as you take in the wonderful views and ever present sounds of the sea from the front door and every room of the property. This desirable location provides easy access to all Southwold’s must-see attractions. The bustling High Street with all the amenities of the boutique shops, restaurants, cafes and award-winning pubs are all within an easy walk.

  • I’ve been wanting to stay at Number 6 for as long as I can remember. It didn’t disappoint. Such a fabulous location, watching the sunrise every morning was bliss. We managed lunch out on the beautiful verandah in December! The decor is so tasteful and in keeping with the property & Southwold. We absolutely loved it and will definitely be back! Thank you

  • The joy of the house is its location and the gift of living for a week with the art and objects of Edward Vulliamy. It’s such a privilege and the owners are very generous to extend that to us. The decor is wonderfully understated and perfect for a holiday stay. No unnecessary frills but pleasing and peaceful. Towels and linens are lovely and the bed is very comfortable. We have no complaints.

  • The position of the property Is perfect. The fact that it has been owned by the same family since 1912 makes it special for us too plus it has the first owner’s paintings on the walls together with some of the objects he painted on the shelves. We look forward to seeing them each year and are grateful that nothing changes.
