A fabulous holiday for all ages awaits at Telford. 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.
