    Aldeburgh and the surrounding area has inspired many authors and poets in the past but the most famous son of the town is Benjamin Britten who founded the Aldeburgh Music Festival which now has worldwide acclaim and is held every year in June at Snape Maltings. Fishermen still pull their colourful boats up on the shingle beach and sell fresh fish from the picturesque huts. The wide, mainly Georgian high street has many attractive buildings whilst the seafront properties all have commanding views of the beach and the North Sea. Boating is popular on the nearby Alde estuary where a large variety of yachts can be seen at summer weekends.  



    A fully refundable security deposit may apply to this property to cover potential damages.

    Mrs Penny Denman
    "Charming house with lovely garden with bonus of private parking outside. Very clean and well equipped. Warm, cosy and inviting - even in November. My husband and I together with our little dog will definitely return. Walking distance to the town and beach. A real gem. SuffolkSecrets can really be recommended."
    Mrs Patricia Watts

    "The property was of a high standard. We have booked this property three times. A nice surprise to find there was wifi, as when we booked this was not available. We definitely book this property again. This property has the best location and private parking, which can be a problem in Aldeburgh. Only a 10 minute walk to all facilities. We arrived by car but didn't use it for the whole week of our holiday. Perfect place for relaxing and the Aldeburgh Carnival is fantastic."
