"A course held at Snape Maltings brought me to Aldeburgh and I am super glad to have found this little gem of a cottage. It has been the perfect base for me. I just wish I had been able to utilise the beach being so close and to really explore the town. Unfortunately timings and off-season prevented this. Would really love to come back, and next time to have a holiday with my husband."
“Had a very restful stay in this cosy cottage. Had fish and chips in the Upper Deck, much better than having to queue! Also ate at Regattaa & Sea Spice – both very good. Coffee great a the Market, which is also good for breakfast if you don’t want bacon and sausage. Walk along the rive is interesting, though we sort of lost the footpath at the end.”
