The Britten is a beautifully presented self-catering ground floor apartment in Church Farm in Aldeburgh on the Suffolk Coast. It is a perfect escape and has all you could need for a couple looking for a relaxing and romantic holiday. The whole property has been furnished to a high standard throughout with a subtle nautical theme creating a relaxing and peaceful holiday home for you to enjoy.

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.
