    “Great location and I loved the cottage!”

    It was disappointing to only have a choice of 5 TV channels despite there being a Sky box. Will definitely be rebooking though.

The property

A charming holiday cottage ideally located in the picture-perfect Suffolk seaside village of Thorpeness. Ideal for a couple looking to get away from it all in stylish accommodation. Thorpeness is one of Suffolk's best-kept secrets. Just a mile and a half along the beach from Aldeburgh, this charming holiday village was largely 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 JM Barrie, author of Peter Pan. The village has a meare which can be explored in the summer time by rowing boat. Plus, there's tennis courts and a games room at the nearby Thorpeness Country Club during the summer months. Keen walkers (either two legs or four paws!) will enjoy the area as it's ideal for walking and cycling, both along the coast and the inland countryside. You can then relax and put your feet up in your cosy cottage after a day exploring all that Suffolk has to offer. The views over the meare in the living room and front patio really are rather spectacular. Picture yourself opening a bottle of something cool and bubbly whilst taking in the magic of Thorpenss meare. Ground Floor A courtyard at the back of this charming cottage gives access to the kitchen, with a second door from the living room opening into the sunny front patio. There's a door between the two rooms and wooden staircase rising from the kitchen to the first-floor landing. Living Room This has beautiful views across The Meare and has a two seater sofa, large arm chair, natural choir carpet, 40'' Smart TV which connection toFreeSat. Kitchen/Dining Room In the kitchen/diner there's a beautiful handmade kitchen with a Smeg range cooker, fridge, dishwasher, Nespresso coffee machine, microwave and a dining table to seat four people. The cottage's original stairs (Some may find them a little steep and narrow) from the kitchen lead up to the first floor. First Floor Both the bedroom and bathroom open off the landing. The bedroom has a sisal carpet flooring and the bathroom has an attractive wooden floor. Bedroom There's a handmade oak king size bed and natural choir flooring and two windows, one of which has lovely views of The Meare and the other a glimpse of the sea. Bathroom A large family bathroom with a magnificent freestanding bath, separate shower, sink and w.c. Outside There are patios to the front and rear of this semi-detached Suffolk holiday cottage with an outdoor table and chairs to seat four. The front patio has pretty views across Thorpeness Meare. There is a right of access over the back patio to the back garden of a neighbouring cottage. Across the road from the cottage you’ll find The Beach House café/restaurant and The Meare café. On-road parking is usually available either on the road outside the cottage or around the corner on the beach road near the Thorpeness Country Club. Guest Wing There is also the option of adding on the guest wing which comprises of a double bedroom & wet room, making the property suitable for 4. Please get in touch if you wish to add this.
