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 Meare - 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’s lovely apartment with lovely location:) only one comment, that over the top of two single beds were heavy original oars, where I felt not very safe for a child as they can pul them and after some time they can course accident, I would prefer to place them not directly above the beds, thanks
