A short walk from the High Street and the beach and with plenty of parking too, Telford has it all!  This impressive detached house in the heart of Aldeburgh combines a mid-century retro style and modern tech with the holidaymaker in mind. Colourful Orla Kiely designs paired with G-Plan style furniture make this such a memorable house. Deceptively spacious, Telford has large windows which flood all rooms with natural light. Set back from the road, the property has a large driveway (a bonus in Aldeburgh) and to the rear there is a fully enclosed garden which is a real sun trap! With plenty of outdoor seating, there's even a selection of garden games and a barbeque for those long summer evenings - why not walk to the local fish huts then cook up some of the delicious, locally caught delights back at your holiday home! 

Ideal for families; you no longer need to pack your car to the brim when travelling down to Suffolk. The owners of Telford have provided a wide selection of children's equipment so if you've forgotten to pack something, it'll likely be here! (For more details, please see the notes below). Within a five minute walk is a children's playground and tennis courts at King's Field, as well as the popular gym Mint Fitness, which runs a selection of adult and children's classes, bookable online. And strolling down to the High Street and beach with a buggy is a breeze.

For adults looking for a 'child-free' stay, all equipment is thoughtfully stored away unless required, although, 'big kids' may like making use of the 50 inch Smart TV and the retro Nintendo games console! There are lots of reasons to come to Aldeburgh for a stay, particularly for the many festivals through the year, and the owners of Telford hope to make your holiday as comfortable as possible. The kitchen is fully stocked if you like cooking and baking while you’re away, and there are two adult bikes suitable for short jaunts around the area which you are welcome to use. (If you are bringing your own bikes there is room in the garden shed to store two adult bikes by prior arrangement.) There is a selection of books for you to enjoy on the loungers in the garden or by the cosy woodburner in the evening.

With so much to explore from your doorstep, and with a supermarket and pub within minutes, your next Suffolk coastal getaway, whether it’s winter or summer, should definitely be spent at Telford. Pub: 350 yards, Shop: 350 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.

Very relaxing week in "Telford" and Aldeburgh. Always good to visit familiar place and discoverer hideaways. Good beach walking and not really affected by the seasonal weather - but cobwebs blown away on a couple of occasions. Very enjoyable from Snape on Monday onboard "Sea Tradar" around the Alde to Iken Cliffs.

Andrew & S,

We have had a great week at Telford! We have been blessed with good weather and the house is the perfect location to explore the area. Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful home.

Previous Customer,

A wonderful stay! Beautiful house and large garden. Super! Thank you.

The Harrison Family,

Away with daughter, son in law & two grandchildren and Telford worked really well for us all. The garden & particularly the were a huge hit. The garden & beach equipment was just outstanding. Everything we needed was on hand. Location for walking to Aldeburgh was so easy. If you could have organised a little more sunshine all would of been perfect! Recommendations to eat - The Lighthouse + Regatta To visit - Aldeburgh, Thorpeness, Orford, Snape Maltings. Best beach -Walberswick. Highly highly recommend.

Previous Customer,

We've had a wonderful week staying in this beautifully furnished house. We've enjoyed breakfast in the garden and sitting there in the evenings. Highlights of this week have been: - A Britten day - The Red House, church and a concert at Snape Maltings. - Circular walk to Thorpeness (via the Scallop). - Orford and the Castle - Sutton Hoo (followed by rewatching The Dig) - Dunwich and RSPB Minsmere - Southwold and The Beach Huts Restaurants in Aldeburgh are lovely - we really enjoyed The Lighthouse, Regatta and L''Escargot Sur Mer. A takeaway from Thai Street Cafe was excellent. Sadly couldn't get a table to try Aldeburgh Market. Snape Maltings was a good escape from the rain yesterday. Excellent arts & crafts - with the pleasure of seeing and talking to Maggi Hambling. Browsing the shops was a wonderful treat! A fabulous week - Thank you!

Previous Customer,

We had a wonderful week of cold sunshine to celebrate the Easter school holidays (and the beginning of easing Boris's lockdown plan!). Wonderful walks in the North Warren to Snape & back and of course exploring "The Shell". The girls LOVED this house. Thank you

Previous Customer,

We have enjoyed a wonderful week here and were lucky to have sunny weather after one wet day. We loved looking around me area (our first visit to Suffolk since the 1980's), at the towns and the castles (Framlingham & Orford). The walks were all good. The highlights were the guided tour at Sutton Hoo and our visit to RSPB Minsmere. The restaurants we tried were all good but found that booking well ahead was necessary at this time. Aldeburgh and this house were a great find!

Julia & J,

This is a beautiful property situated close to the heart of Aldeburgh which is a delightful town with huge shingle beach lots of independent shops - no multinationals at all really - great places to eat and drink and wonderful walks. This house has everything you could possibly need for your stay from comfy beds and furniture to an array of books and games to keep the kids happy - Lego too which was a nice surprise. The garden is nicely planted with herbaceous borders around a huge lawn. Everything you need is in the shed from bikes to swingball. The barbecue is very good too! All in all a fabulous place to spend time having fun.

Mr D,

A very comfortable and well-equipped house with a lovely big garden. The house is beautifully furnished and is a real home from home. It was great to have breakfast outside in the garden, and to enjoy the space outside in the evenings before walking into Aldeburgh to one of the restaurants. It is in a great location, just a 10-20 minute walk to the centre of Aldeburgh.

Ms D,
