In a wonderfully quiet pocket of Aldeburgh, within easy walking (or driving) distance of the beach and bustling high street, White Sails is a light, modern and welcoming retreat for up to 7 looking to escape to the Suffolk coast. This deceptively spacious, detached holiday home with off-street parking and enclosed garden, has been fully furnished with the holidaymaker in mind to create a stylish, memorable and welcoming retreat for all.
Hints of white, blue and teal throughout link White Sails to its' coastal positioning but has been done in such a way to create a timeless and sophisticated space. There's room for the whole family here: an extremely generous sitting room/diner centres around the newly installed wood burning stove. Large windows and french doors flood this room with natural light, whilst statement pieces such as the iconic Tom Raffield butterfly light fitting and re-upholstered 4-seater button back sofa add texture and depth. This is a great space for socialising at all times of year - the dining table seats 8 comfortably and can be used multi-functionally for board games too should you wish, whilst you listen to your own music via the Bluetooth speaker, or catch up on your favourite Netflix box sets on the Smart TV.
A well equipped kitchen leads off from the sitting room and again looks out over the garden, which is great space come summer to keep an eye on wandering children exploring the enclosed garden. In fact, should you wish to separate off from the group, a wonderfully relaxing 'snug' with L-shaped sofa, large Smart TV and vast DVD library is a great place to escape to for adults or teenagers; you just might have to draw straws first!! If that isn't already enough, then the owner has truly thought of everything, with over 20 board games for those rainy days; even including ‘Aldeburgh Monopoly’! And for the bookworms there is an extensive book library with around 80 books covering all genres and age groups.
Upstairs, the thoughtful touches continue. All of the bedrooms have been comfortably furnished and echo the colour scheme downstairs to create a wonderful marriage between the two levels. The master bedroom is a very generous size, with King bed, built in storage, Smart TV and en-suite shower room; it truly will be a treat to return to after memorable days down on the shingle Aldeburgh shores.
For families, White Sails really has thought of it all. The utility room at the side of the house can be accessed via the driveway and has plentiful hooks for coat storage and enough space to house pushchairs, crabbing nets and buckets and spades. Here too you'll also find a washing machine and separate tumble dryer; perfect for keeping on top of the laundry...! Don't leave your four-legged friend behind! Your furry family member will appreciate the dog bowls, spare dog lead, treats and poo bags left here by the owner - they will feel very at home. In terms of exploring, a footpath just outside the house leads you down to the meadow - generally undiscovered which means you're likely to have the reign of this space for an afternoon. There are two paths from the meadow, one taking you onto Victoria Road opposite Aldeburgh Library, which is then just a short walk to the high street. The other path takes you directly to the beach via the roadside path, in approximately 10 minutes.
So for a truly captivating holiday home, which will look set to be your new found favourite, we recommend a stay at White Sails! Pub: 0.2 miles, Shop: 0.3 miles, Beach: 0.8 miles

Aldeburgh, home to a variety of Music & Literature Festivals including the famous Aldeburgh Festival of Music, is a charming, historic seaside resort with many fine Georgian buildings. The town was a medieval fishing centre and fishermen still draw their boats onto the shingle beach to sell their catches. The area around Aldeburgh reflects the unspoilt nature of the Suffolk coast and only two miles along the shore is the unusual coastal village of Thorpeness, with its picturesque mere and excellent golf course. The town has a good selection of shops and eateries.

To give our cleaners enough time to complete the additional cleaning and sanitising that is currently needed to keep our guests safe, check-in and check-out times at the majority of our properties have been temporarily revised. The revised times for this property are reflected above.
We had a wonderful and relaxing week at White Sails. The house is beautifully decorated and very well equipped. We particularly enjoyed the garden and summerhouse and we will return.
