Property details

This elegant flat, forming half of a large town house, offers tasteful and sophisticated accommodation in the heart of Aldeburgh. Located just a short walk from the High Street; with Aldeburgh’s renowned beach, high street boutiques, art galleries, delis and restaurants. Danes House is perfect both for guests who wish to be part of the Aldeburgh scene and for those wishing to escape to their own peaceful haven. Danes House sleeps eight in four spacious bedrooms all on the ground floor. To the front of the house is a homely sitting room with a smart TV and a wide selection of family board games for those cosy evenings in. The hall connects to two stylishly decorated bedrooms (one a double and one a king), both with TVs and en-suite bathrooms.
The modern kitchen is equipped to a very high standard and has French doors opening out onto a recently landscaped terrace and garden. Beyond the kitchen is a further twin room and a king-sized double – both are light and airy, sharing an additional seating area and a large family bathroom. The rear bedroom opens out onto the garden via further French doors.
Outside, the kitchen is a terraced eating area with dining furniture as well as a fashionable, heated breeze hut and barbeque.
Being just minutes from the either the town’s infamous shingle beach and stunning coastline or the peaceful walks towards the River Alde, Danes House is an Aldeburgh gem. In addition to offering comfortable, stylish accommodation, Danes has the added bonus of providing off-street parking for one car – the value of which cannot be underestimated during the summer months.

Surrounding local area

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.

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.

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.

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.
