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 shingle and behind the village is a myriad of footpaths over heath and common land.

We had a lovely family break in this cottage and enjoyed our stay.
The house was perfect for our family Christmas. We loved the proximity to the coast, and tennis courts. Extremely attractive furnishings and fittings, and because no pets are allowed to stay there, it smelled good.
