Description

Situated in the ideal spot along the popular Aldeburgh High Street lies Beachcomber, a charming former fisherman's cottage which is full of character and yet so beautifully furnished to create the ideal space for four guests. A holiday here gives you prime positioning in the heart of this coastal town with easy access to the abundance of boutique shops and delightful cafes. Aldeburgh's pebble beach lies just moments away making this a truly memorable coastal escape.

Beautifully furnished to a high standard, Beachcomber makes a great holiday cottage for small families or a couple looking for a little extra space for their stay. You're welcomed into an enchanting sitting room with exposed brick feature chimney breast - it really is the perfect room for nestling down in to watch a film after a long day exploring the Suffolk Coast. Through to the kitchen where there is a perfectly formed space for rustling up a home-cooked meal or preparing a picnic for the beach! A rear lobby leads into the ground floor shower room. Upstairs are two bedrooms, the master is situated at the front of the cottage and is equipped with a king size bed, bedside tables, built in wardrobes, and an accent chair situated by the window - perfect for watching the hustle and bustle of the high street below. The second bedroom is perfect for children with bunk beds and a storage wall rack.

There's so much for the whole family to enjoy both in Aldeburgh and along the Suffolk Coast, you will have plenty to pack your days with. It will take you just one minute to get to the beach! Being situated in the high street, the beach is just moments away from the front and back doors of Beachcomber, as the high street runs parallel to that popular pebble beach that Aldeburgh is so famous for. A short drive or scenic walk down the coast and you will be in Thorpeness with its famous Peter Pan themed Meare, where any age can enjoy taking a rowing boat or canoe out for a paddle to explore the many islands. Snape Maltings and the RSPB Minsmere are also musts for your stay, both great places for those who enjoy scenic walks, a spot of bird watching, a little retail therapy, or just a spot of lunch! With a location like this, what's not to love? Beach: 100 yards Shop: 0.2 miles Restaurant: 0.1 miles.

What we love about this property? The positioning is hard to beat. Located on the bustling Aldeburgh high street you will be at the heart of all the excitement. With everything on the doorstep you will be in easy reach of all the things Aldeburgh is so famous for - the stretching pebble beach, the Alde Estuary, the historic Moot Hall, the yacht club, Aldeburgh Cinema, the award winning fish and chip shop, and all the fabulous shops, restaurants, and cafes!

Fishermen still pull their colourful boats up on the shingle beach and sell fresh fish from the picturesque huts.

Cottage was ideally located on high Street. Clean and well equipped. We had a very enjoyable stay and I would visit again or recommend.
