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. There are a couple of shops and eateries including The Kitchen, a popular café which is literally across the road from this super holiday house; plus the Meare Tea Room and The Dolphin Inn which serves excellent meals with local wines and beers.

4 The Dunes is a pebble’s throw fro both the Meare (lake); it's several miles of shallow water can be explored in the summer time by rowing boat; and the sea with a walkway leading down to the shingle beach and miles of coastline to explore.

The tennis courts and games rooms at the Thorpeness Country Club, literally around the corner, are often available during half term holidays as well as the summer months for all the family to enjoy. Also close by is the Thorpeness heathland golf course. The area is ideal for cycling and walking, both along the coast and inland countryside. Its a short walk to the famous 'House in the Clouds' and Thorpeness windmill.
