Samphire is a bright, modern and immaculately presented holiday home situated on the edge of Church Farm, a modern development at the north end of Aldeburgh.  The beach and Aldeburgh's iconic seaside sculpture 'The Scallop' are just a minutes' walk away, whilst the shops and caf?s of the High Street are just 5 minutes away by foot.

This three storey self-catering dwelling is the discerning holiday-makers choice.  The master bedroom, on the second floor is bright and spacious and makes the most of the splendid views north towards Thorpeness across the marshes.  The twin bedroom is very spacious, suitable for children or adults and there are two separate living areas each with TV and feature fireplace.

The kitchen is perfect for family living with large dining table and a fabulous range style cooker (not that you'll need it with all the wonderful restaurants in Aldeburgh and along the Suffolk Coast).

Outside, the pave and landscaped garden is the perfect place to end a summer day.
Shop: 500 yards Pub: 500 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.
