“Beautiful little cottage with an excellent location very close to the beach and high street.”
After making this self-catering Aldeburgh holiday cottage structurally sound, it was sympathetically restored to create two period one-bedroom cottages. The renovation project was an exciting journey of discovery, with fire places saved, brick floors uncovered, original joinery preserved and rotten window frames carefully measured and replaced with exacting copies. Inside and out the walls of the house have been lime-washed with natural pigment colours, and linseed oil paints used on the exterior woodwork. This self-catering Aldeburgh holiday cottage and it’s sister cottage Hidden Cottage are ideal for couples who enjoy quirky period features mixed with contemporary flair.
Downstairs there’s a spacious living room with a lovely wood burning stove, and a kitchen with handmade units. Upstairs you’ll find a large bedroom with a king size oak bed and a bathroom with a roll-top bath and separate shower.
