'The Wheelhouse' is a small self contained chalet in the garden of the main property. It is only 100 metres from the beach and 350 metres from the Town Centre. There is on-road parking without restrictions. There is a toilet & basin with heated towel rail, but no bathroom/shower. 1st March - 30th November the shower block at the camp site is open and FREE to use. Having spent time in 'The Wheelhouse' myself, this didn't present a problem. I am open to discussion for pets to stay, just contact me

We enjoyed our stay at the Wheelhouse. So much on such a small space. Yet everything we needed was present. There are limitations but these are carefully outlined in the airb&b details. Our host, J, was so helpful and available to meet with. His outgoing temperament and his…

We had a lovely stay at The Wheelhouse. It was very clean and had everything we wanted for our stay. It was in a fantastic location. John was a brilliant host, very thoughtful, considerate and understanding. We look forward to staying again. Ian & Val

Thank you for your very kind words in my guest book and on Airbnb. I would be very pleased to see you again sometime. It was a shame you left early as I didn't have new guests on your day of departure and you could have stayed here until after lunch. Best wishes John

The Wheelhouse is perfectly located, a very short walk from the pier and beach. The accommodation is very clean and practical and exactly as described. When not at the seaside, the children enjoyed the cosy attic space, playing in the garden with some outdoor activities John had…

Well..... my two children (11 and 8) and I had a fantastic stay in the Wheelhouse (fondly nicknamed the weeny house) last week. The location is amazing, to be out and on the beach in minutes was great. We loved the quirky accommodation, and soon adapted to the space. The…

This is a very tiny space. You cannot even kneel up in the loft space where the beds are. This surely constitutes a fire risk. The beds are old and of very poor quality. You cannot use the showers at the camp site. In addition the camp site is a good twenty minute walk away…

Since I started listing my property with Airbnb nearly a year ago, I have hosted for 46 bookings and only received glowing reviews. Sadly this is my first and only brought about because Ruth didn't read the information supplied. It is advertised as a tiny space and without a…

A perfect tiny house for a short stay in Southwold. Location is great just minutes from the pier and sea, the house is cosy and clean with everything you need. John is a friendly and welcoming host.
