High House is the perfect place to go with your kids, your extended family or your friends, for a seaside holiday on the Suffolk coast. The spacious, dog-friendly home sleeps up to 10 people in five bedrooms and is in Wrentham, within walking distance of the village shop and the Horse and Groom pub. The cottage is a stone's throw from the Benacre Nature Reserve and just two miles from the beach at Covehithe - easy enough to cycle if you prefer not to take the car.
Wrentham has a playground, cafe and wine shop as well as a friendly atmosphere. As well as being close to Covehithe, it is only five miles from the seaside resort town in Southwold. The two beaches could not be more different. Covehithe is peaceful and quiet with no amenities and few visitors. There is parking about a 15-minute walk away by the church, but your effort is rewarded with a long sandy stretch that is dog-friendly all year round. Southwold is a quiet old fashioned resort with a pier, places to eat and drink and a lengthy promenade - ideal for a traditional 'bucket and spade' holiday with the kids. Both are typical of Suffolk's coast and an excellent demonstration of why this area is such a fantastic choice for a fun and relaxing holiday.
There is always something fun to do when you stay in Suffolk. Local attractions include Framlingham Castle, the East Anglia Transport Museum, and the lido at Beccles. You can take a boat trip along the River Waveney, make gin at the Adnams distillery, visit castles and historic churches, go to a music or food festival, or enjoy long walks and bike rides along the coast and through the beautiful Suffolk countryside. Nine miles north is Lowestoft, or drive half an hour south for the shops and restaurants of Aldeburgh.
Southwold and the surrounding area is a beautiful place to visit in any season, regardless of your age or interests. The comfortable accommodation and convenient location of High House mean that you can explore to your heart's content.
