Sol Backen is a wonderfully imposing, detached period property that combines the charm and features of yesteryear with the modern comforts of today.

Exposed wood floorboards with cosy rugs set the style throughout this home that several families visit time after to time to create wonderful holiday memories.  There are four bedrooms here, (2 double and 2 single) each with a comfy bed, plenty of space and ample storage.  The large kitchen breakfast room is the hub of this self-catering holiday home with its country-style units, oak table and bench with bright modern chairs and cushions and of course, the  blue rayburn and patchwork tiles. What better place to start the day. The living areas are huge. The lounge with character fireplace is bright and airy, whilst the dining room is cosy and the perfect setting for an evening family meal after a day exploring the Suffolk Coast.

Outside, the patio leads out to an endless mature garden that the children will adore and a charming summerhouse.

Aldeburgh and the surrounding area have 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 on summer weekends.
