Suffolk Magazine press review:
"Aldeburgh Cottage is self-catering at its most stylish - from the contemporary fixtures and fittings in this restored 19th century cottage to the wine, organic biscuits, fluffy towels and cotton bed linen that await your arrival."
"We've had an absolutely wonderful week! The cottage is amazing!"
A beautifully restored seaside self catering Aldeburgh holiday cottage just moments from the beach, and successfully combines contemporary luxury with period features. Light and airy throughout, it is clutter and chintz free, apart from the friendly painted wooden seagull you'll find above the fire place.
On the ground floor there's a living room with a cosy open fire, a kitchen/dining room with original Suffolk brick floor, and the family bathroom. Upstairs there's a double bedroom with an en suite shower room and a twin bedroom. Outside is an enclosed patio garden. Aldeburgh's popular beach, shops and restaurants are all close by.
Living room: The front door leads into the delightful living room with a leather sofa and two leather armchairs, traditional floor tiles, sash window, natural fibre rug and an open fire. There's a flat screen TV with FreeSat channels, a DVD player and an iPod docking station.
Kitchen/dining room: There's a Smeg range cooker, butler sink, handmade units, a pine table and four chairs, a charming old Suffolk brick floor and an original fireplace (not in use). Further appliances include a fridge and microwave. (A washing machine and freezer can be found in the utility room.)
Family bathroom: This has a double-ended bath (great for relaxing in with a glass of wine or two), a hand basin, a w.c. and a tiled slate floor.
Lobby: A small lobby between the kitchen and bathroom leads out to a private back patio garden and shared off-road parking beyond.
Utility room: Reached via the back patio garden, there's a useful utility room with a washing machine and freezer, and space for walking boots and bicycles.
From the living room there's a door to a winding wooden staircase that leads up to a small first floor landing.
Bedroom 1: This is a double bedroom with pretty white-washed floor boards. There's an antique pine chest of drawers, bedside tables and a wardrobe with a fabric front.
En-suite to Bedroom 1: A contemporary shower room with a shower, w.c. and hand basin.
Bedroom 2: A twin bedroom with a single bed at each end, bedside tables, a wardrobe, chest of drawers and a window overlooking the pretty patio garden. This room has a sloping ceiling.
Outside: There's an enclosed patio garden with a table and chairs. The back gate leads out to a narrow private lane, turn right out of this and the beach is just moments away. The private lane is shared for parking with the neighbouring cottages. A space is often available although cannot be guaranteed. On-road parking is also usually available nearby.

A travel cot and a high chair is available on request and we suggest that, for space, the number of people sleeping at the cottage shouldn’t exceed four, including babies and young children.

“We love this place – both Aldeburgh and the cottage. It' a wonderful base for our perfect Aldeburgh day, which begins with a trip to the bakers for the best bacon sandwich bread we've found.
