Petrel Cottage is in a tucked away spot yet moments away from the hustle and bustle of central Southwold. This charming cottage is deceptively spacious with accommodation spread over three floors. The owners have cleverly transformed Petrel Cottage into a cottage which appeals to both couples and families with small children. The open plan sitting room and dining area is a lovely space where you can socialise together and the brilliant design of the small kitchen area provides you with all necessities desired for a self-catering break.

Holidaying at Petrel Cottage gives you a fantastic base from which you can explore Southwold and everything this coastal gem offers. At the end of the road you’ll find the popular Red Lion pub serving local Adnams Ales and food with a great ambience. Just a couple of minutes’ walk across the picturesque South Green takes you to the seafront where beachside fun awaits or head towards the High Street and enjoy a spot of retail therapy. The glorious green Common is also within easy reach and perfect for some quiet time reading a book and watching the world go by.

  • Really lovely cottage, perfect for our stay and with a few Southwold quirks thrown in. We found the ground floor tiny toilet more amusing than perhaps we should.

  • Enjoyed a lovely stay in Petrel Cottage, fabulous position, easy reach to all the Southwold attractions!! Mixed weather this week, appreciated the cottage facilities (even 2 chilly evenings we used the little living room heater!) Grandchildren loved the 'loft' bedroom and the 'tiny' toilet! Love to come here again.

  • First time in Southwold, and we all absolutely loved it! Great location with the beach and town on the doorstep. The children loved the beach and the Pier, and generally mooching around the town. St. Edmunds Church is beautiful, with a visit to the park. Petrel Cottage is a great base for exploring the area. Well equipped and a perfect size for our first holiday here. Thanks

  • Petrel Cottage is ideally placed for the town. We have stayed in Southwold many times but this was our first time in Petrel Cottage- we hope it won't be our last! The cottage is well equipped with everything you need for a fabulous stay. Plenty of lovely walks locally including to the harbour and over to Walberswick. Also worth calling into the fish shops at the harbour- good selection of fresh fish
