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.

Great place to stay. Beautiful cottage. Great location. All facilities good.

Mr R,

This cottage is in a good location for the beach and local shops etc and we were greeted with a nice bottle of wine to begin our stay. The cottage has all the quirkiness of a traditional fisherman’s cottage which includes a steep staircase to the first floor plus steps from the living room to the kitchen and also from the main bedroom to the bathroom (reached through the smaller bedroom), none of which are carpeted. We had a lovely holiday and enjoyed meals at the local Regatta and Prezzo restaurants and delicious fish and chips at the local chip shop The Golden Galleon.

Mrs W,

Lovely quaint fisherman cottage, seconds from the beach, very comfortable!

mr L,

The cottage was characterful and charming - and very comfortable (great beds!) Very well equipped - rather a tiny fridge..... Delightful garden. And of course the position is perfect. We loved it and didn't want to leave!
