Glencairn House stands proudly part of Ogilvie Hall in the heart of Thorpeness on the Suffolk Coast. This large and spacious self-catering holiday home has been furnished throughout to an extremely high standard offering guests a truly luxurious and relaxing setting in which to unwind during their holiday. Spread out over four main floors this contemporary property has a variety of communal rooms perfect for entertaining; the beautiful and fully equipped lower ground floor kitchen complete with skylight is outstanding and the two-storey vaulted ceiling of the open plan living area is particularly striking and is complimented by a cosy woodburner. There are five fabulous bedrooms and four bathrooms creating a holiday home with great flexibility for any family or group of friends looking to explore all this part of Suffolk has to offer.

Thorpeness was a favourite of JM Barrie, and the Meare is a re-creation of the Peter Pan story. It is in active use from Easter to October, when you can hire canoes, rowing, sail boats etc., and enjoy Thorpeness Regatta. Other amenities include the award winning Dolphin Inn, the famous Thorpeness 18-hole golf course, Thorpeness Country Club tennis courts, a village shop/deli and Meare tearooms. The beaches are beautiful (Aldeburgh is a 20-minute walk along the beach), and a myriad of footpaths over heath and common land lead from the door, e.g. to Dunwich and RSPB Minsmere.
