Holiday cottage in Reydon, Nr. Southwold, Suffolk, England - Peaceful Location, A Minute From The Marshes And 10 Minutes Walk From Southwold High Street And Pier
About Judy Cullen-Moore
Some friends invited us to stay with them in their cottage in Reydon back in 2005. We fell in love with the area and visited as often as possible. We dreamt of having our own place here. When my mum sadly died two years ago we were able to use her legacy to realise our dream. The cottage is named after her. We've enjoyed renovating it, adding our stamp and making it as cosy and homely as possible. It gives us the perfect chance to do what we love best: walking, cycling, sitting by log fires in lovely pubs or settling in for the evening in front of our woodburner with friends and family. We hope you enjoy coming here as much as we do.
Judy Cullen-Moore purchased this Cottage in 2013
What makes this Cottage unique
We love the fact that we can pop to the shop when we need things without having to plan in advance or can send our son when we're cooking and find we're short of something vital. We love eating al-fresco in our secluded and sunny garden. Even though you can't see the sea you know it's not far when you spot the top of the lighthouse from the front bedroom.
Smoking is not allowed anywhere in the property

Good cosy cottage
Overall good experience with cosy and warm cottage with comfortable kitchen- diner, front room and three bedrooms. The location is 15 min away walk from Southwold, which was fantastic. What could have been publicised more is that two bedrooms are interlinked and no dedicated car parking facilities. The downside was that only 1 towel was provided for 6 guests, which has been tricky.
Thanks Tanya for this great review. We’re so glad you enjoyed your break at Bridget’s Cottage. I’m sorry you felt there was a lack of information and that this made it tricky for you. We do mention that the bunk Bedroom is accessed through the main bedroom (which is great for parents with young children), and the on-road parking, on the website but I’m sorry that this wasn’t clearer for you. We also mention that we provide one hand towel so you need to bring your own bath towels. This is to keep the laundry costs down. Again I’m sorry that this wasn’t clearer for you and we’ll do our best to make it stand out more in future. Thanks again

Early new Year break
The cottage worked well for a break after New Year.We had a good walk into Southwold from the cottage .It was good chance to explore the town without a car.The cottage was well appointed and we relaxed at home in the evenings after visiting friends who live fairly close by.
Thanks Paul, we’re glad you enjoyed your new year break at Bridget's cottage. Hope to hear from you again soon.
All the best

A short break in December. Good location to walk into Southwold. Well furnished and equipped cottage. A couple of tweaks would make it perfect.
Thanks so much for this Samantha. Good to know that you liked the cottage. We're always grateful for any suggestions so I'll message you direct about the tweaks!
All the best

Around 10-15 minutes walk to North Beach and Southwold's traditional pier via a variety of routes including a scenic footpath over the marshes along side Buss Creek. The promenade, with its picturesque beach huts and cafes, stretches all the way to Southwold's sand dunes. Beyond the dunes is the working harbour where you can buy fresh fish from one of the fish huts or go crabbing. There are boat trips along the coast and a little ferry across to Walberswick.
Southwold is 10 minutes off the A12. If coming by rail the nearest station is Darsham, a 15 minutes taxi ride. There is a regular train service to Darsham via Ipswich from London Liverpool Street. Alternatively, you can come to Halesworth, where there is a bus service to Southwold.
Norwich is just under an hour away. Aldeburgh and Snape Maltings Concert Hall 35 minutes drive. Orford 45 minutes drive. Walberswick 5 miles by road, 3 miles walk/cycle over the footbridge at Southwold Harbour. Given the variety of footpaths you can easily get to a lots of lovely coastal and rural locations on foot or by bike.
There's an excellent village shop opposite the cottage where you can buy everything you need from butcher's meat to wine and woolly hats! In the unlikely event that you can't find what you need at Barbrookes , there are 2 supermarkets in town and many independent shops, not to mention the cafes, pubs, delis and restaurants if you don't feel like cooking! There's also a traditional fish and chip shop and an Indian take away.
Apart from walking, cycling, swimming in the sea and exploring the stunning coastline, there are many other things to do in Southwold and the local area. There are tennis courts in Southwold and the recreation ground in Reydon (with childrens play equipment and exercise bikes). A little further afield, there is the Lido outdoor pool in Beccles, an indoor pool (with flume) in Bungay and Afica Live at Kessingland. You can also visit places of historical interest such as Sutton Hoo and Framlingham Castle.
Music lovers can enjoy live music at times during the summer on South Green, folk music in the Harbour Inn or the Latitude Festival (in July).
There is also an excellent Summer Theatre in Southwold.
