One of a quirky terrace of cottages at the southern end of Aldeburgh High Street and just a 1-minute walk from the beach, Bay Cottage offers comfortable family holiday accommodation split over three floors.

On the ground floor, the cosy sitting room with its wooden floor and period fireplace leads through to a very practical kitchen/diner with all the essentials for a self-catering holiday. There's a small courtyard garden to the rear of the cottage too, making it ideal for bringing your pet. On the first floor, two comfortable bedrooms await, one twin and one double, whilst on the second floor a further bedroom and ensuite can accommodate a further two guests.

Bay Cottage is well placed for eating out in Aldeburgh.  The Aldeburgh Fish and Chip Shop is a few steps away, as is the Brudenell, a seafront hotel with delightful restaurant with views out to sea. Shop: 100 yards Pub: 100 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.

We loved Bay Cottage. It was very comfortable and had a lovely welcoming feel about it. Perhaps enhanced by the excellent wine and refreshments which were kindly left out for us. The location was great too and it was very nice to have the little courtyard garden, which was very pretty. Also we were pleased to have wifi. We'd be very happy to stay again. Thank you.Mrs Morna Clements - 10th July 2017
