Please note - 2 Truman Lodge has recently undergone a complete renovation. 

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 furnished to a very high standard providing a clean and inviting environment to relax and enjoy the breathtaking views over Thorpeness beach. Guests will find a TV and bluetooth speakers in the lounge, perfect for keeping everyone entertained. 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 newly fitted, fully equipped kitchen where should they decide to self-cater, all amenities are provided. A handy breakfast bar is in place, 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 a real luxury feel with a king sized bed and a luxurious en-suite shower room. 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: 2.1 miles 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.

It is a delightful property that is located exactly where you need it to be. Fabulous dog walks to excellent Adnams pubs.

mr H,

We've stayed here twice and will certainly return. It's a comfortable, modern and well equipped apartment with wonderful sea views and a very quiet location.

Mr F,

The accommodation was very impressive and we soon felt at home in new environment. Clearly, someone had put a lot of thought in the planning and preparation of this property. The location was just right and gave us easy access to the surrounding places of interest. We will certainly be using Sufforlk Secrets again.

Mrs B,

Position excellent, met our requirements for comfort and standards.

Mr H,

The property had been furnished to a high standard and was very comfortable. Great location in a small quiet Suffolk village. We had a great stay and would recommend to friends.

Beautifully appointed maisonette with lovely views to the sea and pebbled beach. Parking always available outside the accommodation. Lovely additional features like reed diffusers, ornaments, rugs and quality bedding and towels. Peaceful location with great access to main attractions. Highly recommended.
