Glentula sleeps eight guests in four bedrooms and sits in an enviable position in the seaside town of Southwold, on the Suffolk Heritage Coast. Located in a quiet residential road, Glentula is just a short walk from the town centre and beach, making it an ideal seaside retreat all year round.
Southwold is a fine English seaside resort and popular holiday destination with its sandy beach (some pebbly areas), light house, pretty pier, boating lake, promenade, tennis court and golf course with lovely views. The thriving market town offers a great selection of pubs and eating establishments, along with independent shops and galleries to browse. Southwold is also home to Adnams Brewery where you can take a tour of the brewery and distilleries and sample a pint or two on home soil!
The surrounding area offers plenty of attractions and great days out, if you can tear yourself away from the beach! For wildlife lovers, RSPB Minsmere (as featured on Spring Watch) is within easy reach, as is Easton Farm Park where the little ones can meet the animals. The bustling Suffolk village of Walberswick is another great attraction and you can catch a ferry from Southwold harbour or go by foot and enjoy one of the many beautiful walks in the area.
Glentula affords off-road parking to the side of the property (for two cars) and has a paved front garden and a garden to the rear, so plenty of room for relaxing on a sunny day. Across the back of the property is a large stylish kitchen with dining area that is perfect for supper or alfresco dining during the warmer months with access to the rear garden via the patio doors.
Whatever the time of the year, Glentula provides a relaxing retreat for a holiday by the sea and a great base for exploring the Suffolk coastline.
