A pretty beachside bolthole just a stone’s throw from the sea! Pilots House is in the coastal town of Aldeburgh, close to the shops and pubs.

This striking bay fronted holiday home is over two floors offering cosy family accommodation for four guests. The two bedrooms are upstairs, beautifully furnished with plenty of storage space and lovely views. The living accommodation is on the ground floor- the sitting room has a couple of comfortable sofas and a feature brick fireplace housing a gas effect wood burning stove (perfect for the cooler months) and a dining table and chairs in the bay window. The cottage style kitchen has all the usual appliances including a dishwasher and a washer dryer. A lovely feature of this room are the French doors which open up onto a pretty enclosed courtyard garden, a lovely place to sit and relax at any time of day…

Aldeburgh is the quintessential seaside town on the Suffolk coast with stylish shops, cafes, delis and prom. Be sure to pick up some fish and chips and picnic on the beach!

The area has some great cycling and walking routes and trails so there’s something for everyone… look out for Maggi Hambling’s iconic Scallop Shell on your travels.

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 location on the High Street was really great, especially as we went out of season, and could park right outside. A really nice little cottage. We will visit again.

Miss B,

The Pilot's House was the perfect way to pilot around this charming seaside town. Bang opposite the Bakery and right amongst the restaurants Then out the door and on to a wonderful walk. The cottage was well equipped and sweet.

Mr K,

Excellent location in the centre of Aldeburgh, very convenient for all facilities.

Mr T,
