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 property was of a high standard. We have booked this property three times. A nice surprise to find there was wifi, as when we booked this was not available. We definitely book this property again. This property has the best location and private parking, which can be a problem in Aldeburgh. Only a 10 minute walk to all facilities. We arrived by car but didn't use it for the whole week of our holiday. Perfect place for relaxing and the Aldeburgh Carnival is fantastic.Mrs L Hazell - 30th August 2017

We were very comfortable. We have been coming for 5 yeas, so it must be good. There was nothing, in the way of equipment, that we were short of. We are very happy with the service that we have had over the last 5 years. The staff at the Aldeburgh Office go out of their way to help us.Mr J. Dakin - 7th June 2015
