The Old Custom House B&B is extremely well placed for access to the Suffolk Coast and RSPB Minsmere world renowned bird reserve in Westleton. Blythburgh is on the A12 giving you easy access from London and Essex or Norfolk, and is just 5 miles from Southwold, close to Walberswick and Dunwich (Train station from Liverpool Street via Ipswich). We are also just a half hour drive to Aldeburgh, Snape and Framlingham, so visit us and explore this area of outstanding natural beauty.
Great place to stay as a base to see Southwold and surrounding area. Extremely clean and comfortable rooms, a delicious breakfast, good local tips from the friendly hosts. The downstairs part of the property where the bedroom and bathroom is has it’s own front door, so felt quite private as Jeff and Wendy are upstairs. The house is opposite the white hart pub that serves great food. Would highly recommend.
What a wonderful place to stay. It is like a home from home, super comfy beds, soft fluffy towels and bathrobes and lovely touches like excellent biscuits, fab tea and coffee, fantastic sausage rolls and recommendations as well as being brilliant people who go out of their way to make your stay as great as possible, even offering lifts to help us out! A truly excellent place to stay and the best people who allow you in. Thank you Wendy and Jeff.
