"A wonderful house, a wonderful place. A wonderful time, wonderful weather. Going back to work is going to be hard. Thank you Aldeburgh, thank you Magenta, see you next year!"
"Lovely few days here at Magenta in Aldeburgh, weather was cold, sunny and bright – perfect for walking. The cottage is a real home from home, and to wake up with this wonderful sea views is the icing on the cake. Cottage is perfect, would love to come again. Thank you"
“Our third time at Magenta – 2 weeks for the festival. A perfect ‘Base camp’. Already booked for 2019, the festival again and Christmas”
“We have really enjoyed another 3 days at ‘Magenta Cottage’ with our eldest daughter. The weather has been perfect, the cashmere in the case didn’t see daylight! Very many thanks too all, do hope to return.”
“Another fabulous stay at my favourite cottage ever! I feel like I’m an ocean liner when I wake up and look out to sea. Very comfortable, every mod con and fantastic kitchen, will be back!”
“Have been coming to Magenta for many years, watching and listening to the sea, so peaceful. Upgrade – Very comfortable, we look forward to returning”
“We’ve had a marvellous time at Magenta, our daughter Millie (4) has asked me to state that she loves this house because it is pink! We also brought our son, Felix, on his first holiday – he is four weeks old! My top tip is to leave the bedroom curtains open in order to watch the sunrise each morning – magical. A fabulous and well-equipped house – we have put the ice cream scoop to good use and loved playing Tartix”
