Introducing Lapwings… the perfect Aldeburgh seaside home!

Our newest arrival Lapwings is a supremely stylish modern seaside home a short walk from the centre of Aldeburgh.

Only ten minutes from the beach and with a charming garden, Lapwings ticks all the boxes for your summer holiday to the Suffolk Coast.  Furthermore, this seaside home even welcomes dogs… what more could you want?

Stylish interiors

Lapwings is sure to entice and delight style-conscious guests.  This coastal cottage is immaculately presented; decorated in an easy-going beach-chic theme and fitted with quality appliances and stylish furnishings throughout.  The sophisticated coastal decoration with the driftwood-style coat rack and nautical colour palette is perfect for a beach holiday!

Furthermore, restful tones continue upstairs and into the bedrooms.  Both are wonderfully bright and light, with oak furniture complimented by shades of grey and blue.

Guests can enjoy the gorgeous morning sunlight that streams into the east-facing twin bedroom overlooking the garden.  The master benefits from having a solid oak king-size bed and built-in mirrored wardrobe.  With two equally great bedrooms, Lapwings is a perfect seaside home for families, couples, and groups of friends alike.

Delightfully modern

The quality modern appliances installed in the light contemporary kitchen at Lapwings make self-catering a dream.  Chefs will delight at the built-in electric oven, four ring hob, extractor hood, large fridge and freezer, dishwasher, and free-standing microwave.  There’s also a Nescafe Dolce Gusto so you can enjoy quality coffee.

Al-fresco dining

Furthermore, the great outdoor space at Lapwings means you can make the most of the Suffolk sunshine on a summer holiday.  The garden is large and stylish, partly paved and part shingle with planters.  Spend days relaxing in the sunshine, or enjoy al-fresco dining on long summer evenings.  There’s a high fence surrounding the garden, meaning it’s perfectly secure for children and dogs.

Long walks

With glorious walks right on your doorstep, Lapwings is the perfect property if you are bringing a pet on holiday.  Plus, dogs actually stay for free at Best of Suffolk, so there’s no reason your furry-friend should miss out!

The gate from the garden leads straight onto a footpath that joins a disused railway track.  This popular walkway runs through woodland to Thorpeness, with fantastic nature to behold all the way.

Alternatively, following the same path from the house you can get to the beach in ten minutes!  Walking North along the beach will take you past the spectacular four-metre high ‘Scallop’ sculpture designed by Suffolk-born artist Maggi Hambling.

Walking South leads you through the town and towards the striking Martello Tower, one of the largest and northernmost of 103 19th century defensive towers built to resist a threatened Napoleonic invasion.


There’s a reason why Aldeburgh is such a well-known popular coastal destination!  Obviously the beach is a fabulous feature of this beautiful unspoilt seaside town, but Aldeburgh has far more to offer than only its stunning beach.  With fabulous independent shops, a cinema and a host of pubs and restaurants, there’s always something to entertain all guests.

Delightfully, the heart of Aldeburgh is only a ten minute walk from Lapwings.  The high street is an eclectic and wonderful mix of independent shops and well-known brands sure to delight every visitor.

Moreover, Aldeburgh is a foodie paradise, home to reputably the best fish-and-chip shop in the country, as well as an award-winning delicatessen!

Thorpeness has a wonderful fairy-tale charm.  Originally created as a private fantasy holiday village, it is now a wonderfully wacky holiday retreat.

Hours of fun can be spent in the summer rowing around the boating lake and discovering the Peter-Pan-inspired islands.   Afterwards, enjoy a fabulous pub lunch at The Dolphin Inn before walking home to Lapwings.
