Durrants Holiday Cottages

We started in 1905 (as HA Adnams), a time when visitors would rent a self catering property for a season and bring butlers and maids with them in true Downton style.
Times may have changed, but our commitment to maintaining the highest standards certainly hasn't. We want our home owners to know that their properties are being managed expertly, and we want our guests to have the best holiday possible.

Durrants Holiday Cottages feature more than 60 holiday properties in Southwold and the surrounding villages, ranging from traditional seaside cottages and Victorian townhouses through to modern luxury apartments. Courtyard gardens, sea views and beach access - you can find it all with Durrants.

Our experience of offering holiday cottages benefits from over 100 years of trading history and a longstanding association with the area.

Why let your holiday property through Durrants?


Durrants are the only holiday cottage company to have a high street presence in Southwold and as such we benefit from high footfall rates. Our window display features details of holiday properties and our exclusive prominent location means customers will pick up a copy of our brochure or call in to talk to a member of the team face-to-face.


At Durrants we hold our owner's needs in very high regard. We understand that the property you let through us is also your holiday home and would never want to restrict your use or enjoyment of it. With Durrants there is no fixed hire contract with stipulations or caveats restricting owners use. We work for you.


We are a local company. We do not have centralised, national IT or marketing teams. When you pick up the phone to ask for help, advice or an update you know exactly who you’re talking to. Who better to market your property than local experts, right on Southwold’s bustling high street?


We believe in the quality of our properties and as such do not insist upon properties being inspected by external bodies at an additional cost to you. We will offer you expert advice to ensure your property is fully equipped to industry standard, give advice on how to improve your customers experience and offer honest advice if things need improving.
