Southwold with Charlotte B

I spent the most heavenly day with my good friend Charlotte Bevan yesterday at their new holiday house. Southwold is about 50 miles north of me - and only took me 1 hr 15 mins to get there. Its the most heavenly seaside town on the Suffolk coast and I will definitely be going back!

I bought a Noa Noa dress in Collen and Clare, which is one of the nicest clothes shops I have ever been too - its like Westbourne Grove but everything is in one place. It is described by Emma Freud as the best shop in Suffolk. 

Poor Collen and Clare have a dreadful view of WH Smith which is one of the horrid chains that has crept onto this idyllic high street.

Sadly Suzie's cafe was shut because of the weather - its a really fun beach hut / cafe. Richard Curtis and Emma Freud's beach hut called Bernard is next door to Suzie's. Sadly one of the best bakery's EVER was also shut but I will make sure I go there next time. I suggested to Suzie's that they should make and sell Cronuts. That would be amazing. This is Bernard - he was so charming:

Delicious handmade sausage rolls for lunch from the local deli. And a brisk walk back down to the beach to see the pier and the view looking back. I LOVED the slot machines on the pier - all handmade by someone who lives nearby.

Days like that are so special. Charlotte is my hero.
