Nightingale Cottage is a beautiful Victorian detached holiday home in the seaside town of Aldeburgh. This self-catering cottage has recently been restored to a very high standard and provides guests the most welcoming and relaxing place in which to enjoy with loved ones whilst holidaying along the Suffolk coast. Inside Nightingale Cottage has many highlights including a contemporary open plan room with plenty of large windows which give a wonderfully bright atmosphere. For lazy winter evenings indoors simply hop onto one of the cosy sofas in the sitting room and light the woodburner which is a lovely focal point in this part of the cottage. The French doors from this area lead out to the professionally landscaped garden which has been cleverly designed to give a feeling of seclusion. In this wonderful space you'll find a large decked area ideal for barbecues and a large lawn with a gate at the end providing access onto the public footpath and across the Aldeburgh marshes. Shop: 200 yards Pub: 150 yards.
Why We Love This Property
There are so many reasons why Nightingale Cottage is the perfect choice for an Aldeburgh escape but we couldn't leave out the fantastic balcony off the master suite. This lovely feature offers the most breath-taking views over the marshes and beyond to the River Alde - you may even be able to spot Orford Castle in the distance too!

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.
