The stunning views of Thorpeness Meare and it’s proximity to the facilities of this pretty village with pub and beach are a major attraction for this duplex studio apartment; ideal for a couple wanting a break in an idyllic location.
Small, yet fully equipped, this open-plan accommodation includes a reception and dining area with private west facing balcony. The sleeping gallery is fully carpeted and there is a shower room downstairs. An allocated parking space in the adjacent car park is provided.
Thorpeness is about 1½ miles along the beach from Aldeburgh and is a charming holiday village designed by the Scottish playwright and barrister Glencairn Stuart Ogilvie a century ago. He decided to create an idyllic model seaside village, inspired by the writings of J M Barrie, author of Peter Pan. The village has a Meare (local for lake) and its several miles of shallow water can be explored in the summer time by rowing boat. Around the corner from the apartment is the Thorpeness Country Club with tennis courts and games rooms are often available during half term holidays as well as the summer months. The area is ideal for cycling and walking, both along the coast and inland. It’s a short walk to the beach and famous ‘House in the Clouds’, as well as the windmill, close to the Meare and there are a number of shops and eateries including The Dolphin Inn and Village Shop, The Thorpeness Brasserie and a Meare-side shop and café.
