Property details

Located in the heart of this pretty coastal town, this is the ideal property for a family seaside holiday. Lovingly renovated and tastefully decorated by the new owners in 2017, this elegant terraced house provides comfortable accommodation for up to seven people.
With Aldeburgh’s renowned shingle beach just a few metres from the front door, the town’s popular high street shops and restaurants one road away, the yacht club a short walk and the Brudenell Hotel, with its reputable restaurant and outside terrace, literally over the road, what more could one ask of a holiday location?
With the beach being quite so close there is little need for your own outside space, but should you wish to enjoy an al fresco drink at the end of the day, there is an open area to back of the house - perfect for catching the evening sun.
The property is also ideal for dog-owners as, with the property being located at the yacht club end of town, dogs are allowed on this section of beach year-round. The main beach allows no dogs between May and September.
Finally, this stunning property has an off-road parking space located directly behind the house. Guests will almost always be able to use this for themselves - an added bonus as parking in Aldeburgh during the summer can be a challenge.

The Heritage Coastal Towns

ALDEBURGH
A pretty coastal town on the river Alde in Suffolk which enjoys breathtaking views both seawards and following the River Alde inland. Possibly best known for having been the home of composer, Benjamin Britten and as the location of the internationally renowned Aldeburgh Festival. Aldeburgh remains an artistic and literary centre as well as a popular destination for holiday makers and sailors. Famous for many things - good food, great fish & chips, Aldeburgh Music, Maggi Hamblings' Scallop on the Beach being just a few.

ORFORD AND ORFORDNESS
Lying within the Suffolk Coasts and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Orford is a quiet, pretty village, steeped in history. The village grew in importance in the 12th Century when Henry II commissioned the Castle to be built. Orford is famous for its local oysters and smokehouses and has two shops selling a wide range of smoked produce. Pop into Pinney's in Orford to pick up some of the finest fresh fish in the county.

THORPENESS
Built by a wealthy Scottish barrister in the 1900s, and transformed into a fairytale holiday village, with Peter Pan islands in its man-made lake (the Meare), a 70ft fairytale “house in the clouds” and pretty mock-tudor homes, Thorpeness is everything an English seaside village should be. Boasting a golf course, a tennis club, boating lake, cafes, a great local pub, cycle routes, a beach as well as a number of ice cream shops, Thorpeness is the perfect holiday location.

SNAPE
The internationally renowned Snape Maltings, five miles from Aldeburgh, is one of the world’s leading centres of music. It offers inspiring concerts and festivals throughout the year, from the flagship Aldeburgh Festival in June to the folk, world and jazz of the Snape Proms throughout the month of August. For visitors, Snape Maltings brings together outstanding concerts and events alongside distinctive, independent shops, cafes, galleries, walks and river trips, all set against a breath-taking expanse of reeds, water and sky.

SOUTHWOLD
This charming coastal town lies at the mouth of the River Blyth within the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Ranked in the top six of beaches by the Sunday Times travel supplement, Southwold is home to the Adnams Brewery, famous lighthouse, a maize maze, colourful beach huts, an 800 ft long pier, art galleries, shops and pubs as well as the Blackshore Harborside for fresh fish and the ferry to Walberswick.

WALBERSWICK
One of Suffolk's hidden gems, Walberswick is tucked away across the River Blyth from the much higher profile Southwold. The village is most famous for its crabbing. Try your hand anytime and there are many crabs to be caught and returned to the water. With a lovely sand dune backed beach this is probably one of the best beaches in the area for sandcastles.


Things to do


Historical

As well as Orford, mentioned above, there is a magnificent late 12th century castle in Framlingham. This small market town, boasting Ed Sheeran as one of its more famous offspring, is perfect for a stroll and lunch with a Town Trail marking all the primary sites of historic interest.

Leiston Abbey is made up of the mainly 14th-century remains of an abbey of Premonstratensian canons. Among Suffolk’s most impressive monastic ruins, with some spectacular architectural features.

Sutton Hoo, near Woodbridge, is home to one of the greatest archaeological discoveries of all time. At this beautiful estate, with views over the River Deben, walk around the ancient burial mounds, learn about ship burial of an Anglo-Saxon king and visit the estate’s Edwardian house.

Beaches

Suffolk has a tremendous coastline, stretching down from Norfolk in the north, through Lowestoft and down to Felixstowe and Shotley in the south, featuring sandy cliffs, dunes, bays and creeks. Covering a stretch of approximately 40 miles, Suffolk boasts several well-managed, award-winning beaches. Possibly best known, due to its sandy beach, multicoloured beach huts and pier is Southwold, which ranked in the top six of the UK’s best beaches in a Sunday Times travel supplement.

Stately Homes

Helmingham Hall’s gardens are perhaps its most spectacular feature, designed and maintained by the award-winning Lady Xa Tollemache, whose family have lived here since the 1480s. The Hall itself is a perfect example of a courtyard manor house; its four sides are surrounded by a moat, and every night Helmingham’s two draw bridges are raised, as they have been since 1510, leaving the hall an island.

You’ll find Somerleyton Hall in the heart of the Suffolk Broads, amongst swathes of parkland peppered with thatched cottages and the occasional windmill. Though its history dates back to the Viking invasion of East Anglia, this opulent hall is largely the work of two great Victorians and it is now one of Britain’s most well-preserved stately homes and gardens.

Kentwell Hall is one of Suffolk’s most unusual stately homes. A moated Tudor mansion full of surprises and a beautifully preserved interior. Explore it and you might stumble across a castle made of yew trees, a galleon, a two-dimensional maze, rare farm animals, and even some real-life Tudors going about their business. A great day out.
