The house provides ample accommodation for up to 8 persons, with the possibility of a ninth on a single futon, and is available for rent. Subject to availability it might be possible to rent a friend's beach hut to coincide with bookings. The hut is close to the steps to the beach at South Green.
On the ground floor of Sole Bay Cottage are the Sitting room, Dining room, Kitchen, a Shower room and a separate WC. On the first floor there is a double Bed / Sitting room, another double Bedroom and a single Bedroom as well as the Laundry room, Bathroom and Shower room which are reached through the "television room" in which is the single futon.
The front basement room has a single bed and bunk beds.
The sketch plans on this site should explain the layout fully.
There is full gas central heating with instant hot water.
Two colour TVs, with TV points in most rooms, a DVD/CD player, radio and a cot are provided.
The interior is painted entirely in pale ochre, blues and white with strong colours gained from the upholstery of the furniture, cushions and Oriental rugs throughout all the rooms. The furniture is almost all of light timbers, Oak and Beech, giving a casual and relaxing feel. There is no garden, but the house is one of the few in Southwold with access to the beach without crossing a road. The rear yard is excellent for the storage of bicycles.
We do insist on non-smoking tenants and unfortunately are not able to accept any pets.
