    “This was a last minute break with our daughter, son in law & grandchildren & it was perfect for us.”

    A lovely house with a nice view & a short drive from Aldeburgh centre & beach. The only downside was There were quite a few false widow spiders that seemed to have moved in especially around the skylights which our son in law evicted as with a baby & a 5 year old we wanted to make sure the spiders were gone! There seemed to be quite a few outside as well so might be worth checking they aren’t around when you get in! Apart from those interlopers the house & everything was clean & comfortable ...

A good 3 night break.

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!

Note: There is a set of stairs from the decking to the gardens and from the drive to the side of the house so please bear this in mind when booking.
Note: No unaccompanied teenagers.
