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.
