Southwold is a beautiful little town, and Northcliffe is the perfect place to base yourself. Right on the seafront, a brief 5 min walk to the pier in one direction and town in the other direction. Karen and Nigel were great hosts and the breakfast was lovely. We stayed in the Beach Hut room and being awoken to the sound... More

We have just returned from a four night break at the Northcliffe. We stayed in the Sunrise room which had a fantastic sea view. Karen and Nigel were great hosts and could not do enough to make sure we had a great stay. The B&B is very well positioned and you could easily walk to town and beach. The whole... More

After a four hour drive it was a relief to park the car outside Northcliff and leave it for four days without worrying. Karen and Nigel welcomed us to their beautiful home with a greeting second to none. After settling into the Pier Room we enjoyed testing the comfort of the massive sofas in the guests' lounge. Like so many... More

We've just got home from 3 nights at Northcliffe in the beach hut room. This b&b was a great place to stay- fantastic location with sea views. The room was compact but well laid out and very clean with beds being made daily and bottles of water and tea/coffee topped up. Karen and Nigel were great hosts- really friendly without... More

We have just returned from a lovely two night break. The accommodation is great. The breakfasts are lovely. And Karen and Nigel are perfect hosts. We positively recommend 'Northcliffe' and will return ourselves. Andy and Alison.

We stayed here for two nights over the May bank holiday and very much enjoyed our time. The room (Pier) was small but comfortable, it was clean and it had all the usual amenities. The owners serviced the room each morning, which I thought was a nice touch (given we were only there for 2 nights). The only downsides were... More

We stayed 3 nights at the Northcliffe in May the weekend before the bank holiday. We can only describe it has a totally enjoyable experience from start to finish. The breakfasts were certainly amongst the best we have encountered anywhere, the room ( the Sunrise ) was spotlessly clean and spacious and the view from the bay window of Southwold... More

We spent two nights here in the Gun Hill room, which does not have a sea view but is comfortable and quiet. Breakfasts were tasty, cooked by Nigel; who, together with Karen do their best to make your stay a comfortable one.

This was our first visit to Southwold. Karen & Nigel made us very welcome and advised us of good eating places. Our room was lovely and comfortable and the breakfasts were excellent - there was so much choice. An extra attraction for us are the two golden retrievers, Harriet & Lily, they are very friendly and like lots of fuss... More
