Tucked away through a wooden gate just off Aldeburgh high street is a row of terraced houses. In the middle of the row lies, Poppy Cottage. This pretty fisherman's cottage is beautifully presented throughout in neutral colours offering all you could need for a romantic holiday on the Suffolk Coast. Inside there is a cosy sitting room and fully equipped kitchen for you to enjoy, and on the first floor a double bedroom and shower room. At the front of the cottage there is an allocated garden and seating area ideal for relaxing with a glass of wine in the summer months. Poppy Cottage has the best of both worlds, being only a minutes' walk to the beach and even closer to high street with all the interesting shops, restaurants, and bars which this popular seaside town has to offer. An ideal holiday retreat which is typically 'Aldeburgh'. Shop: 10 yards Pub: 50 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.
