Skippers Cottage is unrivalled in its location with its access to the popular Aldeburgh beach and incredible sea views. The sun drenched paved and shingle areas are a fabulous space in which to bask in the summer sun and take in the lively atmosphere of this tourist hot-spot. For the winter months, the views of the deserted shoreline are complimented by the comfort of the gas fire as you relax with your family or friends in the spacious sitting room. Spread across two floors with a range of bedroom choices, Skippers Cottage offers fantastic flexibility with multiple communal areas where you can socialise at ease. The kitchen offers a great space for preparing meals at those time when you would rather just stay in and soak up the outstanding surroundings. Shop: 300 yards Pub: 200 yards.

Aldeburgh and the surrounding area has inspired many authors and poets in the past but the most famous son of the town is Benjamin Britten, who founded the Aldeburgh Music Festival, which now has worldwide acclaim and is held every year in June at Snape Maltings. Fishermen still pull their colourful boats up on the shingle beach and sell fresh fish from the picturesque huts. The wide, mainly Georgian high street has many attractive buildings whilst the seafront properties all have commanding views of the beach and the North Sea. Boating is popular on the nearby Alde estuary where a large variety of yachts can be seen at summer weekends.
