This property is ideal for:  A family or group of friends to enjoy this wonderful, authentic seaside town. The High Street and beach are just a short walk away.

Plus with Snape, Woodbridge and Orford all within driving distance there's plenty to explore.

Eating & drinking:   Aldeburgh is well known for its excellent restaurants -  The Lighthouse and Regatta,  and The Brudenell all have excellent menus. A trip to Suffolk wouldn't be complete without trying the world-class Aldeburgh fish and chips.

Self catering:  Several shops sell top quality locally produce - Slate is a must as is Aldeburgh Market. Fresh fish, lobsters and crabs can be bought from the sheds on the beach.  There are two Co-op stores, one at your convenience on the High Street  and a Tesco and Saxmundham has both a Tesco and Waitrose store who will deliver to Aldeburgh. With an Independent wine shop, butcher and baker, Aldeburgh caters for most needs! Snape Maltings is only a few miles away with The Food Hall and Farmers Market.
