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.

The cottage was exceptionally well presented and spotlessly clean. The gift hamper of treats and wine was lovely and the thoughtful little touches of little soaps, vanity kits and the like were great. Our dog really appreciated the special dog welcome and lovely treats.

We would highly recommend it.Mrs S Montgomery - 2nd April 2017

We fell in love with the Fishermans Rest and can't wait to return! The little extras provided really made us feel so welcome. It was a lovely way to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday.

The whole experience was just great and I cannot rate our holiday cottage highly enough - it was perfect on every way. Now trying to work out when we can book it again!Mrs Christine Bedford - 7th July 2016
