Aldeburgh, home of the famous Aldeburgh Festival of Music, is a charming, historic seaside resort with many fine Georgian buildings. The town was a medieval fishing centre and fishermen still draw their boats onto the shingle beach to sell their catches. The area around Aldeburgh reflects the unspoilt nature of the Suffolk coast and only two miles along the shore is the unusual coastal village of Thorpeness, with its picturesque mere and excellent golf course. The town has a good selection of shops and eateries.

A cosy lodge in a very quiet spot, but only 5 minutes from Aldeburgh. A lovely warm and spacious lodge with comfortable living room and bedroom furniture. Fairly well equipped kitchen. A very nice welcome pack which was a surprise. Aldeburgh is a lovely town and the fresh fish from the beach sellers is a real treat. The weather was rather wet but we visited some local places, read a lot of books and did several jigsaws! - 26th October 2018

Beautifully located, very spacious and very well equipped - not just the kitchen, but provision of local information, a library of paperbacks, games and a very much appreciated welcome tray of coffee, tea + cakes. A real haven. We have no complaints whatsoever.Ms H Everett-Camplin - 5th April 2017
What an absolutely beautiful haven! Thank you so much for the welcome tray, attention to detail and the information on things to do (particularly dog friendly establishments). Loved the accomodation and the idyllic and peaceful setting. We managed to pack a huge amount into our 4 day break. but at a very leisurely pace and always mindful of the luxurious base camp we would be returning to each evening. A place to just "be" and observe and be thankful for the beauty of nature. So grateful for this time together.Helen, Deen and Hendrix the dog! - 31st March 2017
