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.

It is a cracking cottage!Mr Ian Train - 5th June 2016
We had a wonderful tranquil break in glorious surroundings. We were cosy and extremely comfortable in the cottage. We loved it!Mrs A Bedford - 24th February 2016
This cottage was very cosy, well maintained and trouble free. The heating was generous and the Christmas tree and decorations were a lovely touch. We couldn't fault it.Ms Ann Foden - 7th January 2016
Comfortable and peaceful. Well stocked kitchen and excellent heating system. Would certainly consider staying again as very central but quiet location. Suffolk Secrets always first choice for excellent property choice and second to none service.Mr D Waring - 2nd November 2015
A really lovely cottage. A very high standard of property and service. Plenty of places to drive to and lots of good restaurants.Mrs Barbara ALBUTT - 26th October 2015
Lovely welcome gift. Thank you.Good central sit for this trip. Thank you. We visit at least once a year sometimes twice. It is our saving grace when we need a break. Service has always been great.Mr Keith Thomas - 16th September 2015
This is the second, and hopefully not the last, time we have stayed in Top Step Cottage. Our dad comes from Aldeburgh so we always holidayed here. It is a perfect base to relive childhood memories.Mrs J Honess - 31st May 2015
