Decked out in soft creams and crisp whites, this fisherman's cottage in Aldeburgh is a haven by the sea. A small group of friends or a family will be enchanted by the vintage decor, with wrought iron beds, lanterns and statement mirrors. We couldn't help but be charmed by the seaside-inspired pieces – think seashells, weathered white woods and photos of the coast on the walls. During the day, there's no doubt you'll be out exploring, but come nightfall, light the fire and curl up in the living room with a great book or enjoy a delicious family dinner around the table. With Sky TV, a DVD player and a collection of board games, you'll have plenty to keep you occupied during a relaxed night at home – and the snacks are sorted, thanks to the welcome hamper filled with local goodies like coffees, ales teas and crisps. But the location is best of all. You're moments from the beach, just off Aldeburgh High Street. Meander over to the sand and shingle coast as you nibble on the town's famous fish and chips. Culture fans will be enthralled by the lively scene in Aldeburgh, with its world-renowned annual music festival, galleries and antique shops to be found at every turn. Meanwhile, outdoorsy types can explore the Suffolk Heaths, dog in tow – Captain's Wood Nature Reserve is just a twenty-minute drive away.

Home truths

    One well-behaved pet is welcome to join you

    There's street parking in the rear of the home and on many of the nearby roads, but it's not reserved – we didn't have trouble finding a spot, but it does tend to get busy during the high season

    This cottage is situated over two floors, so may not be suitable for those with limited mobility

    There's no microwave in the kitchen

    During our visit, we found that the bathrooms could do with a little spruce up – nothing major, just general signs of wear and tear

About Aldeburgh

When the sun sets on Aldeburgh, the pastel-coloured houses that line the shore seem to glow and the pebbled beach takes on a rainbow hue. Here, the buildings come right up to the beach, so you just need to hop over the coastal wall to reach the sea. The seaside town was once home to Benjamin Britten, and it still retains its creative pull, with the Aldeburgh Festival of Music...
