This self catering holiday cottage in Thorpeness is situated close to the beach and is behind the Dolphin Pub which serves good food and Adnams beers. Thorpeness is a mile and a half along the beach from Aldeburgh and is a charming holiday village largely designed by the Scottish playwright and barrister Glencairn Stuart Ogilvie a century ago, inspired by the writings of JM Barrie, author of Peter Pan.

The village has a large boating lake ‘Thorpeness Meare’ with several miles of shallow water can be explored in the summer time by rowing boat. A short walk from the cottage is the Thorpeness Country Club and here the tennis courts and games rooms are often available during half term holidays as well as the summer months.

Also close by is the Thorpeness' heathland golf course. The area is ideal for cycling and walking, both along the coast and in the countryside. It's a pleasant stroll to the famous 'House in the Clouds' and Thorpeness windmill. There are a number of shops and eateries including The Dolphin Inn, the Meare Tearoom and The Beech House restaurant (opening times vary according to the time of year).

All rental prices include bed linen and towels, gas and electricity plus a welcome bottle of wine and biscuits to help you get your break off to a relaxing start.
