Situated at the southern-most end of Aldeburgh High Street, Flint Cottage oozes character. Sat behind the rather unique characterful double-fronted, flint facade with unusual stepped roofline you'll find truly homely, pet-friendly, self-catering holiday accommodation for up to 8 guests.
White walls throughout give a feeling of space in Flint Cottage, with exception to the dining room where warm yellow walls, character fire place and a bookcase laiden with books and games give a real cosy feel for holiday mealtimes. The large kitchen is well-equipped with everything you need on a self-catering holiday, but with the restaurants, pubs and fish and chip shops of Aldeburgh within walking distance, there's really no need to cook!
Upstairs, there are four good-sized and simply furnished bedrooms, perfect for an extended family holiday. One of the bedrooms even has its own private staircase!
The mature garden is a real asset to this property. When you want a break from Aldeburgh's coastal breeze but still want to enjoy the sounds and smells of the seaside, this is the place to be, with marshland out to the rear and Aldeburgh beach less than a minutes stroll away. Shop: 200 yards Pub: 150 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.

This is the best equipped cottage we have stayed at, couldn't have asked for more.Mrs R Staff - 5th July 2016
We love it! Suffolk Secrets always provide a friendly and efficient service. The Aldeburgh Festival is always amazing!Ms Rosie Sinden-Evans - 28th June 2016
A lovely cottage - well appointed and in great state of repair. Garden particularly good for children. Suffolk Secrets staff were great.Mrs C Nightingale - 19th April 2016
Lovely cosy cottage, particularly appreciated (and envied!) the garden.Mr Francis Wadley - 5th April 2016
Good location; beautifully presented. Everything needed for a good holiday was provided. When looking for somewhere to stay with a fairly large family group over the new year, the staff at Suffolk Secrets were extremely helpful in suggesting suitable places and liaising with the owner to see if they would agree to a shorter than normal let. Flint Cottage was everything we hoped it would be and we would heartily recommend it and Suffolk Secrets.Ms Sue Tate - 4th January 2016
