This quirky cottage is nestled right by the Suffolk seaside in the pretty town of Aldeburgh. Cosy and homely, it's the perfect base for a family trip to the coast. Wake up each morning and enjoy breakfast in the maritime-themed kitchen, or when the sun is shining, take your tea out into the garden to make the most of the nice weather – there’s even a fire pit for cooler days. On chillier evenings, snuggle up by the wood-burning fire in the lounge with a cup of cocoa for a family game or movie night. But the best part of all is the location. An invigorating fifteen-minute walk will take you straight to the beach, where you'll find fishermen working in colourful boats and fresh catches of the day being sold from the huts lining the coastline. When you grow peckish, stroll down the Georgian high street and grab a bite from the historic pubs, fish and chip shops or ice cream parlour. For adventures further afield, head up the coast to Southwold or inland for rambles through the woodlands, wildflowers and awe-inspiring Suffolk Heaths.

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...
