Southwold Stays

Dolphin Cottage

North Green

Restored to a high standard in 2019 Dolphin Cottage is a delightful Georgian cottage located on North Green adjacent to Tibby’s Triangle and a short distance from Tibby’s Green playground. Only a 3 minute walk to Southwold High Street and 5 minutes to Southwold beach.

Dating from 1740 Dolphin Cottage has many period features including exposed timbers, cast iron fireplaces and an original winder staircase (as well as a more conventional staircase). In refurbishing the property much use has been made of solid oak fittings and fixtures.

“We had a weekend away with my best friends and the house and location was perfect! Beautiful property that had everything we could have wanted.”

“If you’re looking to stay in Southwold, you have to stay here. Dolphin Cottage couldn’t be in a better location with a 5-10 minute walk to the beach and literally a stone’s throw from the high street. The decor is very stylish and thoughtful touches have been used throughout. The welcome pack on arrival was much appreciated! We’ll definitely be returning.”
