Outside
Forest Cottage stands in mature gardens with lawn, shrubs, well-stocked borders and includes an irrigation system. To the rear of the house is a decked area with pergola and paved pathways leading to the studio, which has been fully insulated with power points and separate cloakroom – an ideal home office space or games room. To the side is a recently planted rose garden which features a circular terrace. Planning permission for the vehicular access from Blackmill Road has been granted, allowing the creation of off-street parking at the property. In addition, Forest Cottage has a single garage immediately adjacent to the property and accessed from York Road.

Location
Forest Cottage enjoys an excellent position close to the high street in the coastal town of Southwold. Famous for its beaches, fine architecture and local brewery, the town offers a wide range of local shopping and commercial facilities as well as a variety of pubs and hotels, together with a doctors’ surgery and a choice of sports clubs and societies. In addition there is the famous rejuvenated pier and Southwold Harbour which provides access to a variety of water sport opportunities, whilst on the opposite side of the Blyth Estuary is the picturesque village of Walberswick which also has a very popular beach.
The A12 lies some 4 miles to the west and links to the County town of Ipswich (35 miles) and beyond, to connect with the M25, London Stansted Airport and the Midlands (via the A120 and A14 respectively). Direct and branch line rail services run from nearby Darsham Station (9 miles) to London Liverpool Street Station via Ipswich, as well as providing connecting services to Norwich via Lowestoft.
