Thorpeness is a mile along the beach from Aldeburgh and there is a coastal footpath between the two. Thorpeness is unique, designed and built as a holiday village 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. There is a challenging golf course and active country club and several places to eat including The Dolphin Inn, The Meare Tearoom and The Beach House. Nearby, as well as Aldeburgh, you have Snape and the renowned Maltings, Minsmere, Orford and Southwold. The Suffolk coast area is also ideal for bird watching, with RSPB Minsmere a short drive away along with other reserves. Far too much to do in one visit!
