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.

A superbly appointed property, a real home from home with added luxury! Well equipped for all dining needs. Lots of crockery to make it a genuine self catering experience. The garden was a lovely retreat and beautifully maintained. We had a wonderful week.
