During your holiday at Bees Cottage, you can be as busy as you want to be.  The 'buzz' of Aldeburgh High Street with its array of shops, restaurants, and even a cinema is just outside your front door, whilst the tranquillity of the beach is just a two-minute stroll away.

As you enter this comfortable holiday home, you'll be greeted by the coastal theme of the lounge, and when you walk through to the kitchen the reason for the cottage's name really comes to the fore.  A pretty courtyard garden sits to the rear of this holiday home, whilst upstairs there's a spacious double bedroom and single bedroom.

This 'honey-pot' of a holiday cottage has everything to offer for a couple or small family searching for a cosy Suffolk holiday home.  Shop: 50 yards Pub: 10 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 had a lovely short break in this cottage for Bank Holiday weekend. The cottage is full of character and right in the middle of Aldeburgh which was perfect for us. Sadly it was too cold for us to use the gorgeous little terrace garden but we hope to return next year with finer weather.

Picture on the stairs of people reaching for the moon. White rabbit in the snow globe. Pitch of the stairs, funny how things that would be irritating in everyday life can be enjoyable on a weekend away. Boating on Thorpeness Mere. Sitting on the beach. Fish n Chips. Reading this Visitors book. Thanks to the person who cleaned the house, it was immaculate! We have enjoyed our stay.
