What our guests say

"A lovely cottage with everything we could need and a great location.  The courtyard garden has been a real bonus - our sons even managed to play hide and seek!  We highly recommend the toy boat pond and selection of toys above the pharmacy.  The Brudenell hotel was a great place to sit outside overlooking the sea.  We don't want to leave!  Many thanks for a lovely week."

"We are very frequent visitors to Aldeburgh and Thorpeness and it was a nice change to say at Pelican Cottage right in the centre of the town. The half-term week was bitterly cold so the woodburner was in constant use and we enjoyed lots of great food, including (yes, you guessed it) Fish and Chops! Fresh fish, crab and cockles are not to be missed, for us a real jewel of Aldeburgh. We will be back again soon!"

"A lovely long weekend in a tasteful cottage - Thank you! We enjoyed Framlingham Castle and Southwold. Aldeburgh is a long standing favourite of ours and it was great to be so central."
