Thorpeness, a charming holiday village largely designed by the Scottish playwright and barrister Glencairn Stuart Ogilvie a century ago, is just a mile and a half along the beach from Aldeburgh with it’s excellent eateries, pubs, variety of shops, art galleries and independent cinema.

Designed as an idyllic model seaside village, inspired by the writings of JM Barrie, author of Peter Pan, Thorpeness is a truly unique destination and guests are sure to enjoy Meare (local for lake) with several miles of shallow water and islands which can be explored in the summer months by rowing boat or kayak.

A number of shops and eateries, including the village shop and excellent Dolphin Inn (both walking distance from Fisherman's Loft), The Kitchen and popular Meare café are within walking distance. The iconic House in the Clouds, hovering on the skyline, the shingle beach and Country Club with tennis courts and games rooms, often available during half term holidays as well as the summer months are just a pebble’s throw away.

For the sporting visitors, there’s an award winning 18-hole golf course and the area is ideal for cycling and walking, both along the coast and inland.
Fisherman's Loft is ideal for children and family holidays, however the owners do not welcome unaccompanied teenagers and children must be supervised on the balcony and in the rustic garden where they are advised to wear shoes due to the recent renovation and any sharp objects which may have been overlooked in the clean up.
