This superb modern self-catering Suffolk holiday house is located on Lakeside Avenue, running alongside Thorpeness Meare, just a mile and a half along the beach from Aldeburgh. This charming holiday village was 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. Mallards is close to all that the village has to offer - the heath land golf course, Country Club with tennis courts and games room, expanse of shingle beach with sea inviting you for a morning swim, popular Dolphin Inn, Village Shop, Meare shop and tearooms plus The Kitchen café/restaurant.

Aldeburgh is only a couple miles away and has an excellent range of restaurants, pubs and shops and the walk from Thorpeness to Aldeburgh is very refreshing. Fresh fish can be bought from the fish huts along the beach. Click here to view our friends page for discounts with the local amenities.
