    How to get there
    Airport: Norwich: 37.3 mi
    Railway: Beccles or Lowestoft: 6.2 mi
    Ferry: Felixstowe: 37.3 mi
    From London Follow the A12 North , Wrentham sits astride the A12 so while easy to find you must be prepared for the fact that 'A' designation does not mean much in sleepy Suffolk , by the time it gets to us its been a single carriageway road for over 40miles. From the Midlands , probably best to follow the A14 East to Ipswich then turn north on the A12. Guests from the North or Northeast can travel down the A1 or M1 and pickup the A14 and follow as above or indeed cut across country on the A17 east to Kings Lynn then take the A47 east to Norwich where they can find the A146 to Lowestoft , at Beccles they can then find the B1127 to Southwold and Wrentham is on this road about 3miles from Southwold.

There is a lot to like about the Old Reading Room- plenty of room, a very tasteful design, everything you might need, great location and local beaches and informative and responsive owners who made our stay a joy. The only two things to be aware of are that the entrance to the house is straight off a main road and... more

The owner was very accommodating when we both turned up in a large van (there was parking) and checked out late by mistake! Really lovely living space with all the amenities you would need. We were there for a wedding so busy with that but would have liked to spend more time in the accommodation - convivial eating space, very... more

We stayed for half term week and couldn't have asked for a nicer base. This is a character building, lovingly renovated with lots of personal touches. We were greeted personally by Hayley who was lovely and very friendly. The cottage is very well equipped and was clean and tidy. We didn't want for anything during our stay. It's also in... more
