Avalon is one of a terrace of cosy fisherman's cottages tucked away, just off the High Street at Aldeburgh and a stone's throw from the sea.
Exposed wooden beams, an open fireplace, deep sofas and sturdy wooden dining furniture set the tone in the open-plan living area. The kitchen is well appointed and has all the equipment you could need during your self-catering cottage stay. During the winter months, the open fire is a real treat to snuggle up in front of, whilst in the summer months, the courtyard garden is a pleasant spot to sit with a chilled glass of something. Upstairs there is a comfortable double bedroom and white bathroom suite.
Avalon is a pet-friendly holiday cottage too.
With the beach just a few yards away, its just 'paw-fect' for a daily coastal walk. Shop: 150 yards Pub: 50 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.

Overall very good experience. The cottage is well positioned in the town but parking can be problematic if the other cottages are occupied. Narrow street so parking only permitted on one side of the street. Outside of property could do with freshening up. Inside the quality of furnishings and kitchen facilities excellent good sized bedroom and bathroom. Staircase is very steep and narrow so awkward getting luggage up and down stairs. We enjoyed it. Good value for money
