Many period features have been retained throughout with floorboards stained and newly plastered walls as well as some of the original lime-washed walls left unpainted. The ground floor is open plan with partition walls cleverly dividing the sitting area from the well-equipped kitchen/dining space furnished with a folding market table and Ercol chairs. Through the ground floor the tall sash windows are dressed with linen drapes for privacy. A modern four poster takes pride of place in the master bedroom upstairs, with the single room at the back sitting next to the wonderful bathroom with free standing bath and vintage table housing the basin.
A secure passage along the back of the house is a good spot to store bikes or beach gear and you can generally park on a side street close to the cottage.
As soon as you open the front door you know that you’re somewhere special. Wooden stairs rise to the first floor and the open plan living space, cleverly divided into two rooms with tongue and groove pine partitions, sits ahead and to the right of you. Beautiful wooden floors throughout are treated with a Danish finish and scattered with rugs.
Designed to make you relax in a wonderfully simplistic style with whitewashed floorboards, lime washed walls with practical shaker pegs, old school cast iron radiators and drapes at the tall sash windows which allow plenty of light into the space. There is also a wood burning stove for cosy nights in.
The kitchen sits along one wall with superb Esse electric double oven, hot plate and induction hob, slimline dishwasher, under counter fridge and three drawer freezer plus washing machine. A painted folding market table can be your base for your projects or meals, with a bench and two vintage Ercol chairs.
Windows onto the high street and King Street make this a beautifully light area which is comfortably furnished with an Ercol rocker and L-shaped soft sofa inviting you to lay back and watch a movie on the flat-screen TV.
A door opens to the alley running along the back of the house from King Street, giving easy access from the beach a muddy walk.
Wooden stairs rise to the first-floor landing where both bedrooms and the bathroom are.

This unique end of terrace holiday cottage sits towards the south end of the High Street in the heart of town, between Fat Face and Joules, literally a few yards from the pebble beach and close to the Brudenell hotel which has a stunning sea facing terrace where you can lap up the sun in the mornings and a stylish restaurant and lounge with sea views in cooler months. The High Street has so much to offer with a range of independent shops as well as some high street brands and a supermarket; plus great choice of restaurants, pubs, cafes and take-aways.
There are wonderful walks along the coast to Thorpeness, passing the famous Scallop shell sculpture to the north or to the Martello Tower to the south; plus pretty walks around the nearby Aldeburgh Marshes and to Snape, just five miles away, with its renowned concert hall, Aldeburgh Music and the Maltings with a variety of shops including kitchen accessories, homeware, delicatessen, clothing, furniture and antiques.
Trinity Cottage is refreshingly different; it has been designed as a creative retreat for those wanting to write, paint, cook or simply chill, rather than as a traditional seaside holiday home for families with children; therefore no cot or high chair are provided. The furnishings and décor are utilitarian with everything you need and nothing you don’t! Ground floor windows are simply dressed with half way linen drapes and the bedrooms have the addition of upcycled woolen blankets, stylishly draped so you can let them down at night.
Sorry, no smoking or unaccompanied teenagers.
