The location is amazing and the regeneration of the old buildings is an imaginative development.
It is scrupulously clean and tidy on arrival with a great supply of towels, the beds are very comfortable, and the bed linen is excellent.
There was a generous welcome pack of essentials.

Fab long weekend enjoying the 'big skies' of the Suffolk coast. Long walks and long snoozes a plenty! Circular walk from Eel's Foot pub around Minsmere was lovely and the Anchor in Walberswick for food was excellent.

A quiet few days in a restful place. Saw partridges, frogs and a tawny owl and kestrel hovering over the field. Good bacon butties from the kiosk on the Promenade, and Chinese from the industrial estate round the corner. Also recommend the fish and chips from The Little Fish & Chip Shop in town. Thanks for the goodies on arrival.

Had a great stay. The Listening Station is well designed and equipped. Fantastic walks with the dog along a section of beach which is only accessible from the owners land.
On arrival the accommodation was very clean, the provision of tea, coffee, milk etc was very welcome. Would happily stay here again and recommend to others.

This place is fabulous. Very modern and contemporary design. Well presented, clean and tidy, a well equipped place. Gorgeous beds, so comfortable, we slept so well. Beautiful spot. Loved the decking area with outdoor chairs and BBQ. All clean and in excellent order. Handy to have private parking too. The location is wonderful, peaceful, sea views and just a short walk into Southwold. I would definitely recommend this place, it is stunning.

Superb accommodation with quality appliances and fittings. Plenty of essential like glasses, cutlery, crockery etc and just just 4 of everything! Luxury bed linen and beds. The decor and all the amenities were of a high standard. Very quiet, tarnquil and private. Huge beach on your doorstep and Southwold just a short walk away. The welcome pack was very thoughtful too.

Terrific property in easy walking distance of Southwold and lovely long sandy beach we had never discovered on (many) previous visits.
Still felt brand new & generous provisions set a nice tone. Very pleased with our stay.

A perfect coastal retreat! Really lovely place with incredible wake up views and ideal location. Within walking distance to the beach and to Southwold without being in the busy centre. Would definitely recommend and hope to return soon!

We spent a delightful break here away from it all. Loved waking up to the view and enjoyed the stillness and silence.
A good place to listen to god.

Comfy and Cosy.
Everything works and the space has been well thought out with nice touches, including essential coffee machine!
You can't beat waking up to the uninterrupted view of the sea and wildlife, from a warm and comfy bed!

We enjoyed a wonderful break staying at the listening Post. It is ideally situated 15 minutes walk from Southwold Pier but it feels like a remote hideaway with wonderful views across the sea and a vast beach for walking. We will definitely try and stay here again and have already recommended this to several friends and family members.

Peace and tranquillity...
If you love big skies, the sound of the sea and walking on empty beaches this is for you. To "get away from it all" was heaven.

What a fantastic location overlooking the sea and surrounding countryside. The light and the skies are spectacular.
You are away from it all, but close to the wonderful town of Southwold and all its amenities.
The Listening Station was very comfortable for the four of us, not large but the layout is well thought out and it was well stocked with essentials. This included milk and a bottle of wine, tea, coffee, sugar, salt & pepper, cooking oil, kitchen roll, clingfilm, foil etc.
We cycled into town and enjoyed trips further afield down narrow quiet country lanes taking in the local brew en route.
You have a real holiday feel staying here and we will definitely be booking again for next year.

A wonderful property that provides peace and tranquillity looking out over the ever changing sea. We enjoyed laying in bed and watching the sunrise in the mornings. The property is luxurious and very well furnished. Easy walk along a track back into Southwold and all the delights of Adnams ales, food and shops. A perfect getaway and we will be back again next year
