Originally built as a stable block and recently converted, Hope Cove is bursting with charm and character and is now a bright and airy holiday cottage. Guests will love the open plan kitchen diner which is flooded with natural light due to the many windows. The kitchen’s coffee machine is perfect for early mornings in preparation for exciting days exploring Suffolk. French doors that lead out onto the private garden where guests will find a patio area complete with garden furniture and Barbeque, is a great space for outdoor dining. Summer evenings can be spent enjoying the outdoors and in the chillier months, guests can enjoy quality time together in a generously sized living room. Double doors lead into the sitting room where warming woods and comfortable furnishings will greet the guests. Nothing beats the warmth of a real fire, and with the living room’s wood burner, guests can enjoy being warm and toasty.

Hope Cove has three generously sized bedrooms with enough beds for up to seven people. The master bedroom’s floor to ceiling sliding doors lead out onto the garden. Guests can open the curtains to Suffolk and have a wonderfully bright start to the morning. The bedroom also has the added bonus of an en-suite, creating a private and comfortable living space. A newly furnished family bathroom has a large, walk-in shower cubicle and heated towel rail to make sprucing up just a little more special.

Hope Cove is in the heart of Thorpeness, a pretty Suffolk village. Guests will love having a local pub, beach and golf club close to their holiday hub. Shop: 2.5 miles Pub: 200 yards

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 buildings 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.

We have stayed in Aldeburgh/Thorpeness several times and the cottage is by far the best. Very secluded with two sunny seating areas outside for eating. Suitable for anyone with mobility issues as only four steps down from the car parking area to the front gate and only one very small step inside between the main bedroom and the adjoining bedroom. Would stay there again. Only a 3 minute walk from the excellent Dolphin Arms.

Mr S,

Three adults and two small children on this holiday and there was plenty of room for us (and more if needed!) The property is spacious, comfortable, located a 5 minute walk from the shingle beach and a 10 minute walk from places to eat. Good sized garden for the kids to run around and very secure with lockable gates at either end of the property. Location is good to get to anywhere in Suffolk you wish to explore and all the locals seemed friendly as well.

Mr T,

We stayed in this property in April and June 2021. The location was perfect for walks to the beach with our young daughter. Hope Cove is ideal for families and the garden offers a lot of security for children to play. This place has touched my heart and I hope to return again in the future. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Mrs B,
