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 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.

Highly recommended.The Lamp House was even better than photos showed. Spacious and very comfortable property with beach nearby. All generations delighted with stay and Suffolk Secrets communicate very well.

Ms G,

We had a very comfortable week at the Lamp House. It is very well placed for lots at walking and very dog friendly. Being so close to the Dolphin Inn was an added bonus.

Mrs G,

Lovely location and comfortable house - friendly village - very grateful our dog could stay too! Would love to visit annually in spring or autumn.

Previous Customer,

Lovely cottage - perfect distance from the sea for an early morning dip, and with a pleasant, sunny garden. Wonderful walks to Aldeburgh and Sizewell and good location for cycling. Thank you,

Ms E,
