THE PROPERTY "Broadside Cottage" was built in 1924 to house First World War veterans, funded entirely by the charitable donations of the grateful people of Southwold. It remained a home for injured soldiers and their families until the early 1990's when it passed into private ownership.

The property has been recently extended and improved by the current owners and consequently it is in immaculate order throughout.

The accommodation in brief comprises an entrance hall, sitting room with open fire, extended kitchen and dining area, two double bedrooms and a bathroom. There is a garden to the front with a view to the sea and a pretty landscaped garden to the rear.

The current owners purchased Broadside Cottage in 2009 as a frequently used second home, before moving in permanently. During a two year period it was a very successful holiday let, with over 85% occupancy.

To fully appreciate the character and charm of this lovely property, early viewing is strongly recommended.

The town offers a vast array of leisure facilities and amenities including High Street shops, restaurants, public houses, Churches, library, dental surgery, award winning Pier, golf and sailing clubs.
