A unique, custom-built beach house located in a secluded and stunning Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Watch Room is a contemporary property designed to blend in with its natural surroundings. Whilst being totally peaceful and secluded the Watch Room is only a short walk from the busy town of Southwold and all it’s facilities.

The property sleeps four in two double bedrooms both with ensuite bathrooms. Linking the bedrooms is a moden living/dining room which opens onto a decked terrace which looks out to sea. All rooms have floor to ceiling windows which make the most of the fabulous views out to sea.

With only a low-lying cliff-edge and a near-private beach separating you from the sea, lie in bed in the morning listening to the waves and the skylarks while watching the fishing boats out at sea.

The Watch Room is built at the end of a private track on the site of a World War II watch station. A location once used by Royal Navy Wrens for listening out for German submarines, it is now impeccably placed for enjoying the changing light of Suffolk’s big skies and appreciating nature at its best.

“We would just like to say what a fabulous and unique experience it was to stay in the Watch Room for a week. The stay, location and cabin were beyond our expectations. Looking forward to visiting again.”

“Absolutely wonderful week. Amazing beds, view, shower, bath, TV and barbecue. Amazing location and great for getting away from it all! Really enjoyed cycling into Southwold everyday and walks to the local beach. Magical! Thank you!”

“The beauty of this place is a jewel. Skylarks singing from dawn till dusk and the views simply stunning. Beautiful full moons and moonlight. I was up enioying the moon setting at 3.45am and sat waiting for the sunrise. We will be back.”

“The Watch Room makes absolutely the best out of it’s perfect location with stunning views, convenience for the town of Southwold and for getting away from it all with great walks up to Benacre and down to Dunwich. The accommodation itself cannot be faulted. Everything you’d need to stay comfortable and cosy…and..well.. pretty much hypnotised by the every changing skies and seas. Had a great time.”
