Chic timber lodges for cosy couples on the Suffolk Coast, close to Southwold and Walberswick

Situated amid the quiet beauty of the coasts and heathland of East Suffolk, the hand-built timber lodges at Toad Hall blend in perfectly with their natural surroundings – there's a nature reserve at the end of the road, with cornfields, reed beds and marshes beyond, and an estuary walk that takes you to either Southwold or Walberswick, two of the most charming places on the English coast. You really couldn't be in a better place to slow down, relax and get back to nature.

Best of all, there's no skimping on comfort, with five handsome mini lodges, three of which have king-size double beds, while the other two have twins – two of these would be ideal for a family of four hoping to spend time on this magical part of the Suffolk Coast. One of the doubles, Pebble Lodge, has an en-suite shower and toilet, while the other four share a separate, heated shower block, with your own private shower plus toilet, basin and mirror. There are reading lamps and lights inside each lodge, plus sockets and USB ports, and although there is no wifi, there is a strong 4G signal. French doors open onto your own private wooden deck, where you can enjoy the hand-delivered breakfast basket each morning, and sit and gaze at the stars at night. A covered outdoor kitchen has a gas grill and barbecue, fridge, and hot and cold water, and there's a communal firepit too. You can walk, run and cycle right from the doorstep – there are forested bike trails to follow, sand and shingle beaches where you'll scarcely see another person and lots of local wildlife. Owners Emma and Gavin are passionate about being active in the outdoors, and they even have a small yoga studio and gym on site, which you are welcome to use.

Southwold is an hour’s walk (or a short car-ride away), an appealing and rather genteel seaside town that's home to a host of indie shops and cafes,  a terrific pier and some of the country's most expensive beach huts! You can hire bikes, paddle-boards and kayaks, the beach is large and usually not too crowded, and you can even tour the bay by speedboat from Southwold's riverside harbour. Take the nearby foot ferry from here across to Walberswick, a tiny village known for its crabbing festival and home to a couple of excellent country pubs, The Anchor and The Bell, both of which serve decent food. The nearby village of Wangford also has a couple of decent pubs, and of course there is loads to choose from in Southwold. Finally, if festival-life is your thing, it's worth knowing that Toad Hall is just a 20-minute walk from the Latitude site, for which it makes a good base if you book early enough.



Open all year.
