Property details

River View, as the name suggests, lies in an enviable position. Located just outside the charming, popular coastal town of Aldeburgh, overlooking the stunning marshlands of the River Alde, yet is also within walking distance of Aldeburgh High Street in one direction and Snape Maltings in another. Surrounded by idyllic walks, a stunning coastline, cycle routes and numerous sporting facilities, not forgetting Aldeburgh Music’s world-famous music festival in June and the Snape Proms throughout August, River View is perfectly situated for every age and genre.

This elegant first floor accommodation is stylishly furnished for two. River View contains a small, modern, well-equipped kitchen, a comfortable sitting and dining area and a large contemporary double bedroom with en-suite bathroom. Furnished and equipped to exacting standards, River View is perfect for couples and individuals looking for a peaceful break.

This stylish retreat is on the edge of the delightful coastal town of Aldeburgh, set back 250 yards from the road with access to a large garden to the front of the property and a private outdoor seating area for al fresco dining.

River View shares a communal hall way with Marsh View, a similarly stylish one bedroom apartment on the ground floor. Both apartments can be booked together in the combination property Marsh Lodge.

Surrounding local area

River View has the best of all that Aldeburgh has to offer along with being in a quiet and peaceful position on the outskirts of the town. Aldeburgh has a busy high street with a large number of independent shops, restaurants, cafes and pubs. There are lots of activities on offer from golf across the road from River View to sailing, walking and of course enjoying the beach and sea. The walking provides lots of opportunities for bird and wildlife watching. You can head down to the Sailors path which follows the Alde from Aldeburgh to Snape, taking in the views across the reed beds towards Iken.

Snape Maltings is home to Aldeburgh Music, which hosts the music festival in June and the Snape Proms in August along with a programme of other events throughout the year. Aldeburgh also has a number of events taking place at both the cinema and the Jubilee Hall including a summer theatre.

Along the coast there are a number of other villages and small towns to visit. Orford is south of Aldeburgh whilst Walberswick and Southwold are to the north. RSPB Minsmere is 20 minutes from Aldeburgh and besides the wildlife reserve, the village and history of Dunwich is worth exploring. Dunwich was once a thriving port however the encroachment of the sea has meant that there is very little of the town left.

Returning to River View following a busy day of exploring the Suffolk countryside, you will be assured of a peaceful and relaxing welcome. You will have the time to sit and admire the view across the Alde estuary or have a glass of something cold in the tranquil surroundings of the garden.

Guest reviews

Great weekend
River View was a lovely apartment beautifully positioned in extensive grounds with lovely views over the River Alde with its beautiful sunsets. The property was excellent throughout and although out of town, still within very easy reach of Aldeburgh town centre. I can recommend, without reservation, River View apartment, and Suffolk Hideaways.

Wonderful! We would wholeheartedly recommend this property. It is in excellent condition & is supplied with everything you need for a relaxing break. The view is outstanding & waking up in the morning & seeing the flooded marshland & blue sky sets you up for the day.
