Button Cottage, a cosy and quintessential holiday cottage at the end of the High Street in the popular destination of Aldeburgh, has undergone a major refurbishment to restore it to it’s former glory. Local joinery firm Church and Gooderham, who share Best of Suffolk‘s traditional values and contemporary thinking, were employed to install traditional sash windows and a bespoke door in keeping with the original architecture.
The contemporary bathroom boasts custom made tiles from Suffolk Whites and the unique original stained glass window reflects the seaside touches running through this comfortable and luxurious holiday cottage.
This Aldeburgh cottage is one of a terrace of restored houses which include Tiger Villa and Hidden Cottage, ideally situated to make the most of staying in the seaside town. The beach is very close by as well as Aldeburgh’s popular shops and restaurants. Through the front door, you are in the main living room area with soft seating and a wood burning stove. At the back of the property is the kitchen and dining room which is well appointed and has plenty of working space. Upstairs are two bedrooms, the master double and a twin room. There is a shared family bathroom. Outside is a lovely courtyard garden with patio furniture and a barbecue.
Best of Suffolk are particularly passionate about restoration and have breathed life back into a number of historic properties in this idyllic part of the county. A perfect example is The 1928 House which was bought in 2009 to save a precious piece of Aldeburgh’s history. This house has remained almost untouched since it was built by Reeds of Aldeburgh for one of it’s employees in 1928 and has most of it’s original furnishings. This unique holiday cottage has been brought back into use with a painstaking and fastidious renovation, meaning guests staying in the two bedrooms can enjoy comfort and luxury, but with the atmosphere of the house’s past all around them.
