    “Skimming Stones is a large apartment in a great location, very close to the High Street at the South end of Aldeburgh.”

    Being on the ground floor in a built up area, it doesn't have views from any of the rooms. The beds were comfortable and the living/dining room was good. The bathrooms were great and there was plenty of hot water. The underfloor heating (in December/January) was hopeless, so we had to use the fan heater if we wanted to warm a room. The lighting was strange in that there are plenty of lights in the lounge/dining/kitchen but many of them barely give off a glow. I think they must be old low energy ...

    Being on the ground floor in a built up area, it doesn't have views from any of the rooms. The beds were comfortable and the living/dining room was good.

The lighting was strange in that there are plenty of lights in the lounge/dining/kitchen but many of them barely give off a glow. I think they must be old low energy bulbs nearing the end of their life. It is a reasonable property, but there are much better places in Aldeburgh if you book well in advance.

About the location

ALDEBURGH

Thorpeness 2.1 miles; Saxmundham 7.2 miles.

The popular, vibrant seaside town of Aldeburgh is famous for its culture, traditional feel and one of the best fish and chip shops in the country! Aldeburgh and Snape Maltings are home to one of the world’s greatest music festivals and has been named as one of the top 50 places to live in Britain. Crag Path runs along the seafront dividing the beautiful pebbly beach from the unspoilt pastel-coloured seafront properties and the town. The beach is a popular place for groups and couples to enjoy the wonderful fish and chips throughout the summer months. The town is steeped in history and has become a wonderful town for shopping with a good mixture of independent and chain stores to enjoy. The town also offers a good selection of pubs and restaurants or why not buy some freshly caught fish from the huts on the seafront and cook up your own feast at home. For those wishing for a more action-packed holiday there is excellent walking, cycling, sailing and golf at Aldeburgh. Growing in popularity you will want to return to Aldeburgh again and again!
