This inspiring Aldeburgh holiday cottage offers flexible 'any day' arrival dates for two or more nights all year around. The house amazingly still has all the original furniture that was bought for the house in 1928, all brought back to life by careful restoration.
“We have had a lovely relaxing stay in this step back in time 1920’s cottage, can’t fault it in anyway. We are already looking into when we can come back weather was good with some lovely sunny days.”
“We’ve had a lovely stay – the weather has been glorious and we’ve thoroughly enjoyed our time in the Vintage House – which is so quirky and original!! We’ve enjoyed regular visits to Aldeburgh which is very friendly & welcoming. Walked over to Thorpeness, which again is a very pretty & nostalgia place. We spent the day at Minsmere, which was a lovely experience and most of all we’ve had time to chill and enjoy the peace and quiet”
