The Listening Station

Southwold, Suffolk
Unique Holiday Home

A truly unique coastal holiday home, The Listening Station. A custom-built beach property located in a secluded and stunning Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and only a short walk to one of Suffolk’s most popular seaside towns, Southwold.

Finished in July 2018 to a very high standard, with stunning views towards the cliffs and beaches of Covehithe, The Listening Station is a contemporary property designed to blend in with its natural surroundings.

This property sleeps four in two spacious double bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. The central area of the property is a comfortable living / eating area opening out on to a decked terrace. With only a low-lying cliff-edge and a near-private beach separating you from the sea, sit outside and enjoy the changing light of Suffolk’s big skies and appreciate nature at its best.

The Listening Station is located on a track in a private estate on the site of a World War II listening station – a location once used by Royal Navy Wrens for listening out for German submarines.

It is a mere 5-minute bike ride or 15-minute walk on a private track from the charming seaside town of Southwold with its iconic beach huts, lighthouse and pier. It is also possible to drive this track into Southwold town.

With a beautiful, secluded beach on your doorstep, an easy walk or cycle into Southwold, lovely coastal walks and amazing birdlife just outside your windows this really has to be the perfect place to appreciate all that Southwold has to offer whilst giving the peace and seclusion in which to really relax.

Location

Discover Southwold. This charming coastal town lies at the mouth of the River Blyth within the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Ranked in the top six of beaches by the Sunday Times travel supplement, Southwold is home to the Adnams Brewery, famous lighthouse, a maize maze, colourful beach huts, an 800 ft long pier, art galleries, shops and pubs as well as the Blackshore Harborside for fresh fish and the ferry to Walberswick.

Walberswick is one of Suffolk’s hidden gems, tucked away across the River Blyth from the much higher profile Southwold. The village is most famous for its crabbing and well worth a visit.
