Mariners Cottage at Aldeburgh

Guests are welcomed into the spacious and beautifully furnished living/family room at the front, with the kitchen and dining rooms at the back, both with double doors to the garden – ideal for outdoor living! Two bedrooms sit on the first floor, one with a zip and link super king bed and the other with twin beds, both with easy access to the large family bathroom with the added bonus of a separate toilet off the landing.

The outdoor space is exceptional at this self-catering holiday cottage which is set back from King Street with a wicker fence hiding a secluded east facing courtyard where you can enjoy morning coffee in the sunshine. The rear walled garden is an oasis of calm in the heart of this bustling seaside town, equipped with a table, chairs and BBQ so you can dine at home in comfort. King Street runs parallel to the high street and Crag Path with unrestricted off-road parking outside the fence on a first-come basis; the large Fort Green car park is just a short walk away if you're unlucky.

Ground Floor
The front door opens from the courtyard into the living space, with folding doors to give the option of a spacious living room or two more private areas. The rooms flow around the house with the living area leading to the kitchen, through to the dining room and back into the family room. There are slate tiles throughout the ground floor with underfloor heating.

Living/Family Room
The front door of this gorgeous cottage opens directly into the spacious and versatile living space; divided into two with folding doors so you can relax in the living area with flame effect gas fire whilst others are watching TV in the family room, or socialise between the two. Furnishings include a couple of large modern leather sofas with comfortable chairs, occasional tables and a TV unit for your entertainment.

This room, sitting between the dining room, living room and garden, is equipped with an electric oven and hob, dishwasher, under counter fridge and freezer. The doors to the garden make it ideal for dining in the fresh air.

First Floor
Wooden stairs rise from the living room to the first-floor landing which is split level and the bedrooms, bathroom and cloakroom open off it. Both bedrooms have wood floors and there’s a step into the bathroom, which has a tiled floor.

Master Bedroom
The super king size zip and link bed takes pride of place in this east facing bedroom which has bedside drawers, a built in wardrobe, plenty of shelves stacked with books for you to enjoy and a wicker chair.

Twin Bedroom
This room, overlooking King Street, is beautifully decorated in soft tones, furnished with twin beds, bedside drawers, a large built-in wardrobe and shelves.

A large bathroom with feature claw foot bath plus a huge shower cubicle, wash basin, WC, heated towel rail and natural light from the glass in the fire door which opens onto a Juliette balcony.

An added bonus conveniently off the landing; an additional WC with wash-basin, plus washing machine.

Mariners has two courtyard style gardens – a great asset in Aldeburgh! A high wicker fence completely shields the cottage from the road with steps down to the east facing courtyard, bordered by lavendar and hydrangea with a door into the house. At the back, with double doors from both the dining room and kitchen, is a fully enclosed and private walled west facing courtyard, furnished with table, chairs, parasol and charcoal BBQ.

There’s unrestricted roadside parking directly outside the cottage on a first come basis so you may be lucky; alternatively there are plenty of car parks close by and you can by a pass for a week at Fort Green car park.
