Thorpeness Cottages

Located just a mile north of Aldeburgh, the seaside village of Thorpeness is a truly charming holiday destination. Most of Thorpeness as you find it today was built by a wealthy barrister and architect in the 1920s with the aim of creating a unique resort where he and his friends and family could go on holiday. To find out more about this gem on the Suffolk Coast, read on…

What is Thorpeness like?
This former fishing hamlet has lots of character with unique and quirky buildings dotted around its famous Meare. Thorpeness Meare, its islands and surrounding area cover almost sixty acres and is home to an abundant bird population. This iconic man-made lake provides myriad recreational opportunities including canoeing, rowing and kayaking between Easter and October each year. Thorpeness Meare is also a relaxing place to simply wander around and also offers plenty of lakeside benches. During the main holiday season teas, coffees and refreshments are served at the lakeside tearoom.

Thorpeness has a fantastic local pub called the Dolphin Inn which serves great food and drink. It has a large garden and in the summer months this is the perfect place for a spot of Al Fresco dining or a cooling beverage.

What can I do nearby?
Thorpeness is within walking distance of Aldeburgh with its charming high street, traditional fishermen’s cottages, galleries and a fantastic choice of restaurants, cafes and pubs. One of the best ways to get to Aldeburgh is via a charming coastal pathway which follows the unspoilt, shingle beach all the way past the controversial shell sculpture by Maggie Hambling. Whilst ambling along this pathway, don’t forget to look out for some rare and unusual coastal plant species. You might also like to stop of at the local wildlife reserve – RSPB North Warren.
