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 (to the front of Holly House), 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.

A well presented modern house which has been tastefully refurbished. The house is a few minutes stroll from the beach and the Meare. The small village shop and pub are very close by. A peaceful spot for a holiday which felt safe and secure.Mr Andrew Claringbull - 6th August 2018
