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.

The property was lovely. Mrs Claire Weaver - 4th April 2018
We would certainly return to this cottage again. The location is excellent, very near to the beach and shops. We came, on this occasion to attend the music festival but there are many interesting places to visit in the area. The staff were most helpful with our booking.Mrs Wendy Riman - 20th June 2017
This is the second time we've stayed at Avalon. It's a great little cottage. Ms Judith Fenn - 21st February 2017
The cottage was lovely and the pictures were accurate. It was well equipped and clean. The location was ideal for us. Close to shops, pubs and the beech. The information about local walks was very helpful. The local people were very friendly and helpful.Mr J Scarfe - 25th November 2016
Comfortable and well appointed. Very difficult to leave! Thanks to everyone concerned. For our first time at short notice we found all aspects very well organised - from the website to the bed linen and towels with a welcome pack on arrival as well! Just as website said it would be. We are planning to return so you can't get a better recommendation.Mr P Jarvis - 17th July 2016
