Winter break

We are back from a long weekend break in Southwold. Yes, I know, we could have gone somewhere else, but we love it. Rather than book a hotel we took advantage of the winter deals on cottages through Suffolk Secrets, basically you can more or less decide when you want to go, rather than being fixed to whole weeks.  We stayed in Tittlemouse House, its a cute comfy cosy cottage and a great base for a couple or a family of four as long as they are small children, the house is small.

It was cold, but we managed to get a good walk to Dunwich in on Saturday.  We had all weather really, bright sun on Friday, sunny intervals and then snow on Saturday evening as we sat in the Boardwalk Restaurant on the pier, very pretty but a messy, slippy walk back! Black clouds and rain on Sunday, not that it kept us in, just required us to take cover in the pub......

Here are some pics of the weekend, as you will see we had a great time. I did a bit of knitting, finished a book and actually read a Sunday paper

We popped into Aldeburgh on the way down on Friday. Had fish and chips for lunch, it was too cold to take photos of them. I didn't actually think about it till I was halfway through them, and who wants to see a half eaten meal plus a seagull was eyeing them up too.

two magpies bakery, cakes
Afternoon tea with the Sunday Times, how civilised
This was found in the house when the wallpaper was removed from the wood panelling. I love that they have preserved this bit of history

So there you have it a great weekend, just hubby and me


  1. Great weekend just hubby and you, Indeed. I can certainly understand the love of a place.
    And...there are far worse places to seek shelter than a pub!

  2. Southwold is a perfect place to relax, winter or summer. There, Aldeburgh and Dunwich are some of our favourite places to visit. Glad you had a nice weekend.
