What our guests say

"We have absolutely loved our return to 1 South Cottages...long-awaited! Fantastic sunny days all week.  We will be returning later in the season! A perfect spot!"

"Cottage has terrific outlook and great position for an early morning run to Aldeburgh, and more leisurely stroll along the beach in the autumn sunshine later in the day, to pick up some gorgeously fresh sea bass from the huts, before enjoying the Aldeburgh’ shops and well earned pint of Broadside at the White Hart. Cannot wait to come back to another of your lovely cottages. Thanks"

"Recommended by The Guardian newspaper, a stunning one bedroom beach cottage"

Thorpeness is a mile and a half along the beach from Aldeburgh and is a charming holiday village 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 (local for lake) and its several miles of shallow water can be explored in the summer time by rowing boat. A short walk from the cottage is the Thorpeness Country Club and here the tennis courts and games rooms are often available during half term holidays as well as the summer months.

Also close by is the Thorpeness heathland golf course. The area is ideal for cycling and walking, both along the coast and inland countryside. It's a short walk to the famous 'House in the Clouds' and Thorpeness windmill, both close to the Meare. There are a number of shops and eateries including The Dolphin Inn, and a popular café next to the Meare (opening times vary according to the time of year).

Sorry no smoking or unaccompanied teenagers permitted at this property.

A well-behaved dog is welcome. If you wish to bring a dog it must be mentioned at the time of booking on the booking form and is subject to our conditions of booking.

Because one of the bedrooms is in a separate annexe it may not be suitable for young children.
