Aldeburgh Holiday Cottages

As one of Suffolk’s oldest coastal towns, Aldeburgh is one of the most beloved holiday destinations in East Anglia. Our Aldeburgh coastal cottages boast some of the best sea views across the Suffolk Secret’s portfolio and put you within a short distance of one of the region’s best loved beaches. Many of our cottages are also dog-friendly, with big gardens perfect for pooches, while our luxury holiday cottages are perfect for an extra-special occasion.  

But why Aldeburgh? While those who’ve been before will be well aware of what makes this place so special, newcomers will be fascinated to know about just how deeply historic and vibrant such a small Suffolk town can be. History, art, music, nature and food can all be found in Aldeburgh, in abundance in fact, making for a truly unique holiday. On top of that, you can also expect to simply enjoy the Suffolk sunshine on a lovely beach.  

Things to Do in Aldeburgh 

Aldeburgh is all about the sea, and always has been ever since it was declared a port town by Henry VIII. The Tudor period in general made Aldeburgh, and during the era, many famous ships were built here, including Sir Francis Drake’s Golden Hind. Aldeburgh continued to attract famous figures and the town has, arguably, been most influenced by the residency of composer Benjamin Britten, whose home, studio and donations to the town have shaped the town’s reputation and things to do.  

Bringing the sea and Britten’s legacy together, and at the heart of the town, is Aldeburgh beach. Aldeburgh beach is a large, pebble beach that is located on the Suffolk Coast Path, making it the perfect starting point for a walk for those who are wanting to explore the path. The beach is perfect for a paddle in the sea and having a relaxing sit down with an ice cream. Be sure to also look out for ‘The Scallop’, a silver sculpture by local artist Maggi Hambling that was created in memory of Benjamin Britten, who loved the beach.  

To find out more about Britten, and his musical legacy, be sure to visit his home at The Red House. The house includes a Gallery and Library, in addition to the main house and music studio, and is open every day between March and October, making it the perfect wet-weather tourist activity. Also perfect for a rainy day, or an evening out, is the Aldeburgh Cinema, a community run cinema that has been around for over a hundred years! 

The Aldeburgh festival happens every year in June and is an exciting week-long event that invites orchestras, classical musicians, jazz bands, opera groups, artists and dancers for a celebration of the arts. If you are coming to Aldeburgh for the festival, we have availability all year round and can provide accommodation during your stay.  

Aldeburgh is also near Thorpeness and Snape, two of its most picturesque neighbours, and within driving distance of Suffolk’s other coastal spots and Ipswich. With such rich, cultural attractions and a beautiful beach, a stay in one of our Aldeburgh holiday cottages makes for a holiday to remember.
