2 Truman Lodge makes the most of its beautiful surroundings and sea views by cleverly placing its living area on the first floor. The spacious lounge diner is clean and inviting with comfortable furnishings and a large dining table. Guests will find a TV, DVD player and CD radio in the lounge, perfect for keeping everyone entertained. Guests can pick a CD from the fantastic collection to listen to as they wine and dine around the table. The windows make the apartment naturally bright, and when opened, fresh sea air will pour through. On the same floor, leading from the lounge diner, guests will find the fully equipped kitchen where should they decide to self-cater, all amenities are provided. A handy breakfast bar is placed, resulting in the perfect place to grab a quick bite to eat or chat with the head chef of the family whilst they cook away. 

On the ground floor, the master bedroom has its own television and DVD player and a luxurious en-suite bathroom complete walk in shower. The spacious twin bed has access to the main bathroom and both bedrooms have fantastic sea views. 

The apartment is located in the heart of Thorpeness with both the mere and the beach being just a short walk away. Thorpeness is an iconic sea side town with an abundance of character. Guests to 2 Truman Lodge can enjoy days on the beach or on the mere where plenty out water activities take place. Shop: 300 yards Pub: 300 yards. 

Why We Love This Property: 2 Truman Lodge’s sea views are second to none. Both upper and lower floors peer over the North Sea, giving guests an authentic Suffolk coast experience.

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 the 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.

Freezer needs defrosting, Vegetable peeler useless, Would make sense if the coat hooks were located in the downstairs hallway near the door to the property. A bit less furniture in the bedrooms would provide more space. Mrs Michele Keeley - 8th January 2018
