The french door opens onto the enclosed garden, complete with patio, meaning your four legged friend, or small children, can wander in and out without escaping too far.

Just a mile north of Aldeburgh is this fascinating seaside village, built in the 1920s by Glencairn Stuart Ogilvie, an architect, barrister and playwright. The mock Tudor style of building is now the hallmark of Thorpeness, where the amenities include the Dolphin Inn, the Thorpeness Hotel with its 18-hole golf club, a country club with tennis courts and the Mere - a large shallow boating lake with tearooms nearby. The beaches are mainly sandy and behind the village is a myriad of footpaths over heath and common land.

It is well equipped in a great location. We stayed for a week and I am happy to recommend the property.

Mr P,

Great property in a lovely location. The property is exactly as it's described. The kitchen is well fitted, furniture is comfortable and the enclosed garden was great for the dog. An easy walk to the beach and to lots of other scenic walks. We'd definitely go back.

Mrs W,

Modern, well equipped cottage in a great location near the beach, Dolphin pub and Meare. Perfect to enjoy the laid back vibe of Thorpeness.

Mr B,

Clean and comfortable, excellent location for exploring the coastal villages.

Mrs T,

A really comfortable, family friendly (we have a two year old) house in a great location. It’s a short walk away from a lovely quiet beach, a boating lake and lots of other stunning locations to explore. Also a lovely garden and house to relax in. Well equipped and the owners had left a thoughtful welcome package of supplies for us. Loved our holiday and would definitely come back. Thank you so much!

Mrs F,

Walnut was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. A great location, only a few minutes walk from the sea.

Mrs R,
