Seaside through and through, The Withies is situated at the southern end of Aldeburgh High Street, just next to Aldeburgh Boat Yard and less than a 1-minute stroll to the beach; plus it offers totally unspoilt views across marshland to the River Alde at the rear and out to sea at the front.

This spacious self-catering holiday house provides very comfortable accommodation with a sprinkle of coastal style for 7 guests, plus a pet.

Size is everything here with two king size bedrooms, a super king (with balcony), and a twin bunk room.  There's no need to fight for the best room, each has a wonderful view.  But for the best view in town and a bit of quiet, head for the attic room!

Downstairs the open plan kitchen/dining area has everything you need and more for a self-catering holiday, whether you plan to make picnics to enjoy whilst exploring Suffolk, or cook three-course dinners.  Double-doors lead out to the deck where you can enjoy a glass of something delicious over an Aldeburgh sunset.

There's off street parking for two cars too, which is a real bonus for Aldeburgh and makes your holiday so much easier! Shop: 200 yards Pub: 150 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. There is a golf club and boating is popular on the nearby Alde estuary where a large variety of yachts can be seen at summer weekends. The estuary is also a great area for walking and for soaking up some of the beautiful Suffolk countryside.

Great property, a credit to the owners. They have done a wonderful job of the renovation. I must also comment many frontage properties in Aldeburgh have got greedy in the rental costs. The Withies has kept it sensible which means we will return many times.Mr Mark Moss - 17th July 2017
The property was comfortable, clean and we would recommend it as a good place to stay.Mrs Evelyn Whitfeld - 2nd April 2017
Loved it.Mr P Millward - 25th July 2016
Beautiful, comfortable house. We loved it. The Withies is a superb property; exceeded our expectations.Mr J Kennedy - 24th February 2016
A lovely Christmas location with plenty of space. Beautifully presented, wonderful views - a lovely comfortable family home.Mrs Jo Saunders - 13th January 2016
Stunning property in a great location, the open plan style suits large family gatherings. Decor and furnishings are of a good standard. The upper 'viewing' gallery is a great place to watch the sunset.Mr G May - 12th October 2015
The attic room is wonderful for watching the sunset., the beds were very comfortable and lots of storage. Kitchen and utility equipment good.Mrs Kate Davies - 18th September 2015
