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.

Superb cosy cottage in a very convenient location, very clean, seemingly recently modernised to a high standard with superbly thought through contents. Safe parking round the back was very welcome, and the log burner an absolute boon, SO cosy and relaxing. We leave with good memories of our visit to Aldeburgh.

Mr B,

Had a lovely week at this house. The place was spotless with bottles of hand sanitiser by the doors. The kitchen has a large fridge freezer and is well equipped, now even with a wok. The house is a short walk down a hill to the high street, brilliant location. Parking at rear of the venue. Our third stay here.

Mr R,

Lovely cottage in a great location, the town centre is just a short walk away. Beautifully renovated with good quality furniture, bed linen and towels. Lots of extras which gives it a home from home feel. The parking is definitely an added bonus. There are plenty of local walks to take in the Suffolk countryside. A definite must is fish & chips on the beach.

Mrs B,

Brilliant location. Car parking ( for a smallish car) is a real advantage. The cottage is comfortable and warm. Garden is lovely.

Ms W,

An ideal location as away from the busyness of the town centre whilst only a very short walk from the shops and sea. The lovely, south facing garden was a massive bonus as were the high quality sheets and towels. Not a cottage though for someone who likes a first floor toilet and the stairs are very shallow and steep.

Mrs B,
