News & Reviews

No matter what we say about our B&B, the words of the guests that have experienced it say so much more.

It gives us immense pride to receive such praise for our hospitality and accommodation, and we hope that their comments on their experiences will help you decide that we could do the same for you.

Should you prefer self catering accommodation we also have a superb newly appointed one bedroom apartment to let. Barley Rise is situated next door and also commands wonderful sea views. Please follow this link to view Barley Rise Southwold.
