House rules
This place isn’t suitable for infants (0–2 yrs) and the host doesn’t allow pets, parties, or smoking.
This large room has its own private corridor and rather grand entrance in this beautiful newly converted Grade 2 listed ex theatre. With tv area (Now TV) dining area, bedroom area and fully equipped kitchenette area with fridge, microwave, toaster and kettle (water from the bathroom) it makes a compact base for exploring the Suffolk coast, wildlife reserves and the Norfolk Broads.
Located in the town centre, 5 minute walk from the high street, and 15 minutes walk from the station and beach.

The space
Guests use the main entrance which leads to a small entrance hall. Here they’ll find books and games they are welcome to read or play as well as some beach games, kites and beach rugs in the cupboard below that you are welcome to take out with you. (Please note that taking towels from the property to the beach is not allowed.)
From here you enter a long corridor with a beautiful bathroom at one end and the studio at the other. There are two other doors which are locked. One leads to my part of the building - you’re most welcome to visit anytime when I’m home - the other is another bedroom I call the Seagull room which is available to let in addition to the studio if you’d like some more space (1 kingsize bed) but is otherwise locked.
You have your own front door key and can come and go whenever you like. There is a security camera over the front door on the outside so I am aware of people coming and going but I don’t monitor this in any way.
The studio is one large room suitable for a couple of adults and up to two or three children. It would be a tight space for 5 adults - though the seagull room is always an option. It is all newly refurbished, the furniture, bedding etc is mostly new too so all in great condition.

Guest access
The studio is set in a private part of the building. Linked to its own entrance by a corridor which contains only the private guest bathroom and a second bedroom (available at an additional fee if required) which will not be occupied during your stay. See the photo of the corridor leading to the studio in the photo collection.

Other things to note
Everything is provided, sheets, towels, shampoo, conditioner etc. Just bring personal items and clothing. The fridge will have some basics for breakfast such as bread, milk and fruit with spreads and cereals, teas and coffee on the shelf too. If you have any specific requests (I’m afraid I won’t buy meat but you can) let me know and I’ll get what you’d like. (Plant based, gluten free, whole meal, muffins or croissant etc.)

Location

Lowestoft, England, United Kingdom

As this building is 200 yers old it stands in an old part of the town with many truly ancient buildings. Only 5 minutes from the Heritage High Street and lowestoft’s famous ‘scores’ you can easily walk to the beautiful Sparrow’s Nest park in 5 minutes to see the lighthouse and the sea below. Ness point is close by (Britain’s most easterly point) and all of this smallish town is easily accessible on foot. The wilder North Beach and more touristy South Beach are fairly equidistant and both are worth a walk. The station is about 15 minutes on foot and provides easy transport to Oulton Broad and the many towns and villages of Suffolk (cycles allowed on board) as well as the cities of Norwich and Ipswich. On street parking is free and available outside the building.
