About this property: The Studio is ideal for that very special seaside holiday where comfort and taste are an integral part of the experience.
Set in the heart of the delightful seaside town of Aldeburgh, just a few minutes' walk from the beach, the property is a wonderful art deco artist's studio, the Abstract Expressionist artist Robert Sadler painted here from 1965 to 2001, and many of his works still hang in The Studio, has been lovingly and tastefully restored to create the perfect state-of-the-art retreat for a really comfortable self catering holiday, suited to all seasons. An enormous first floor south facing balcony overlooks the garden and the sea beyond, whilst the patio has views over the fenced and very private garden.
Ideal for: Sleeping 5, The Studio would best suit either a group of friends or a family. There is also room for one well-behaved dog should your four-legged friend be joining you.
Setting: Aldeburgh, a favourite seaside escape for artists, musicians and families yearning for those special holiday breaks of yesteryear, is a pretty Victorian coastal resort. The inspiration for much of Benjamin Britten's music and centre for his creation - The Aldeburgh Festival - the little town still plays host to concerts, film, theatre and poetry festivals.
In the heart of the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Aldeburgh is an ideal location for bird watchers, walkers and of course sailors. The estuary, marshes and shingle banks are home to a wide variety of wildlife and there are sailing and yacht clubs at nearby Slaughden as well as the famous Aldeburgh and Thorpeness heathland golf courses just a few minutes' drive from The Studio. For more information on the area please see Visit Aldeburgh.
Parking: To reduce congestion in Fawcett Road, please park inside the gates on the gravel whenever you can. Up to three or four cars can park easily. If you explore and need to use public car parks, a weekly season ticket from Tourist Information (in High Street opposite cinema) is valid in the two Aldeburgh Long Stay car parks (at North and South ends of town) and in all other Suffolk Coastal District car parks.
Exploring: The Studio is perfectly situated for exploring; with just a few minutes walk away from the High Street and incredibly close to the beach, you won't need to travel far to discover the delights of this idyllic seaside town. Whatever your holiday interests, Aldeburgh offers a number of activities just waiting to be explored!
The Aldeburgh Golf Club is just up the road, Robert Sadler designed and built the 9 hole golf course in the 1970s, and is perfect for any keen golfer. If you're into fishing, make sure to get down to the beach! From sole, flounder and school bass in the summer to cod in winter, make sure to pack your rods. For sailors there is both a yacht and sailing club with sailing on the estuary and the sea, whilst those with an occasional interest in boating can enjoy boating on the Meare at Thorpeness. Walkers, cyclists and bird watchers can enjoy a myriad of unique habitats from heath and meadow land to coastal landscapes, estuary mudflats to woodland footpaths, all in a single walk.
Eating and Drinking Out: Aldeburgh offers a variety of pubs, restaurants and tearooms to choose from. The White Lion Hotel has sea views and a traditional menu and Prezzo provides a relaxed, friendly atmosphere for all ages. For slightly more formal dining try Regatta or The Lighthouse. However, no trip to Suffolk could be complete without trying the town's world-class fish and chips: there are two great fish and chip shops in Aldeburgh high street, both with a fantastic reputation... you may have to queue at busy lunchtime periods but it will be well worth the wait!
Self Catering: Aldeburgh has two Co-op stores with one situated on the High Street, just a few minutes away from The Studio. Several shops sell top quality local produce - Slate is a must as is Aldeburgh Market. Fresh fish, lobsters and crabs can be bought from the sheds on Aldeburgh beach. With an Independent wine shop, butcher and baker, Aldeburgh caters for most needs! Snape Maltings is also only a few miles away with The Food Hall and Farmers Market.

It was a very special 'haven'. We loved being close to everything, yet having such a tranquil oasis as our base. We will certainly be returning to Aldeburgh and can't imagine wanting to stay anywhere other than The Studio.Geraldine C, London - 22nd September 2015
