"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."
