Mayflower cottage is perfect for your seaside escape at any time of the year.  This beautifully presented and well equipped holiday cottage comes with a pretty south-facing garden and private parking, much sought after in Aldeburgh.

This delightful holiday cottage is situated on Church Farm, an award winning development at the northern end of Aldeburgh, one of the most picturesque seaside towns along the Suffolk coast.

The boutiques, cafes and shops of Aldeburgh High Street are just a 7-minute walk away from Mayflower Cottage, and you certainly won't need the car for a daytrip to Thorpeness, just take a stroll along the beach (which is just 5-minutes away on foot), admiring 'The Scallop', an iconic sculpture by Maggi Hambling, dedicated to local composer Benjamin Britten, along the way.

The lounge at Mayflower Cottage is a warm and inviting room, with soft colours and character wood burner (ideal for those cosy winter nights in front of the fire), whilst the dining room which adjoins the tasteful shaker-style kitchen has double patio doors leading to a pretty south-facing garden, perfect for summer evenings. There's even a BBQ provided for your use.

Upstairs are three well-appointed bedrooms; a double (with super-king size bed), a twin (which can be converted to a super-king) and a single, each with a coastal theme, plus a spacious family bathroom –perfect for a seaside holiday in Suffolk. Shop: 500 yards Pub: 500 yards.

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.

Had a lovely, relaxing stay in Mayflower Cottage. Lovely, clean and well-equipped accommodation. Thank you for the welcome pack. The shortbread went down very well. Aldeburgh and the surrounding area is great and we will definitely return. Thank you!!Lorraine and Howard - 1st May 2017
We were looking for the perfect place for a quiet getaway to celebrate my 50th with my daughters before one of them goes travelling - and we found it! Thank you for letting us stay at Mayflower Cottage - it has everything we need and yes, we agree with previous visitors - lovely comfy beds! Also, the homemade lemon and passion fruit cake and the extra goodies were very much appreciated. We look forward to coming back one day.Lynn, Thomas, Jessica & Ellie - 21st April 2017
We had a very enjoyable two weeks here with Britten-Pears Orchestra. It was a lovely homely cottage to come home to in the evenings and had everything we could have wanted. The wonderful cookies were especially appreciated, and the bag of goodies!Lizzi and Sarah - 3rd April 2017
This is a place to come back to! The cookies were amazing. We finished them after a few days. Beds were very comfortable and we didn't miss anything regarding cooking or anything else. Thanks very much.Dana de Vries - 3rd April 2017

Just wanted to say thank you as we have had a really enjoyable week in your cottage, from the moment we opened the door it had a lovely homely feel. We have stayed in many cottages over the years across the county but this is certainly going to be difficult to beat in the future. We hope to return as we love the location of the cottage.Mr Freeman - 15th October 2016
Familiar with the area,and property was excellent.Mr F Edwards - 6th October 2016
