About Headmasters House

Headmaster's House sits quietly in the peaceful Suffolk countryside, less than a mile from Southwold. It is a charming property providing 4-star comfort for up to four guests in three bedrooms. The layout, which features a spacious bedroom and shower room on the ground floor, is an ideal self-catering property for families and friends. You could, if you wanted, walk to the Sole Bay Inn, which sits under the Southwold Lighthouse, in a leisurely half an hour.

Southwold is as much fun for families today as it was in 1900 when Southwold Pier was built. The resort has been popular for generations and still offers the same bucket-and-spade appeal that your grandparents and parents may have enjoyed. As well as the sandy expanse of beach, Southwold attractions include the lighthouse, Adnams Brewery (where they also offer a make-your-own-gin-experience), and well-curated museums focusing on local life and history. Venture further afield, and you can take an exciting boat trip, explore the Maize Maze or test your swing on the 9-hole Southwold Golf Course.

We know that the British weather can sometimes be, well, predictable in its unpredictability, but as Southwold is a year-round attraction, there is always something fun to do. If it’s wet, browse the town’s boutiques or sit and enjoy a drink as you watch the rain lash against the window. There’s nothing as useful as a blustery cliff-top walk followed by a parcel of steaming, paper wrapped fish and chips to blow away the cobwebs and leave you feeling revitalised (the fish and chips on the pier are a real treat!). When it’s sunny, go crabbing, or step aboard the ferry between Southwold and Walberswick which is rowed by hand. There is also lots to see in the surrounding area, with Snape, Minsmere, Thorpeness and Dunwich all within easy reach and boasting their own unique atmosphere and history.

Although it is a modern property, Headmasters House has a timeless appeal, thanks in part to its beautiful location which provides the ideal compromise between the buzz of a seaside resort and the relaxed pace of the countryside.

Accommodation Comprises:

Headmaster's House is furnished to a very high standard to ensure your stay is a comfortable one.

Downstairs:

  • The living room is a lovely space, decorated in warm cream tones for a classic look, and there are two deep couches and an armchair to seat up to four people. There is a Smart TV with DVD player, and the house also has free WiFi so you can watch exactly what you like. The owners have provided a range of local information and books for guests to use during their stay.
  • A separate dining area has a table and chairs.
  • As the downstairs living area is open plan, there is direct access to the kitchen from the living room, meaning the cook is never isolated. The kitchen is fresh and modern and features an electric oven, gas stove with stainless steel extractor fan, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and microwave. There is a table seating two people in the kitchen, so it is perfect for breakfast or feeding children an early supper.
  • The downstairs bedroom is a spacious twin room, with two 2ft 6in single beds, bedside tables and reading lights. Heavy curtains mean you won't wake up with the early summer sunrise, and there is a radiator to keep the room cosy in winter. The room has an ensuite with shower, WC and handbasin.
  • An alcove leading from the twin bedroom has a wardrobe, chair, small table and Smart TV/DVD allowing the option of some privacy for the person[s] staying in the twin bedroom away from the main living area.
  • Separate drying room featuring pegs for drying coats, an electric drier, and space for secure bicycle storage. It is close to an outdoor tap where you can rinse muddy boots or paws.

Upstairs:

  • Master bedroom which is a generously sized room with a double bed, bedside tables and reading lights, and an armchair. The room is under the eaves and features a dormer window through which you can stargaze before you fall asleep.
  • There is a separate study which can also be used as a dressing room as it has a desk, built-in wardrobe and chest of drawers.
  • Bathroom with a deep bath, WC and handbasin.

Outside: There is an enclosed patio garden to the front of the property with two paved areas each with table and chairs plus private off road parking.
