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. The beaches are mainly sandy and behind the village is a myriad of footpaths over heath and common land.

The location is great, close to the beach and the lake. Do walk from here into Aldeburgh, it's fabulous. The house is so comfortable, warm and roomy. The kitchen is well stocked, beds are comfy and a lovely private garden. We didn't use the annexe but looks comfortable. Suffolk Secrets have been amazing, no quibbles when we had to previously cancel and rebook - true customer service! I will use you again
