  • "We had a lovely stay at 11 Crabbe Street over the Christmas period, We really appreciated the Christmas tree and other festive touches, plus biscuits and sparkling wine."

    The house is in a great location, mid-way between the beach and the high street, yet quiet in the evenings and mornings. We were really impressed with the standard of the furnishings, decoration, facilities and clear instructions etc. and managed to cook our Christmas dinner etc without any stress in the well-equipped kitchen. The accommodation was cleaned to a high standard and nicely uncluttered. Overall a very comfortable base for our much-needed Christmas break

  • "The house was a delight - although it says it is spacious in the description, I was a bit sceptical as it is in a terrace, but it truly is spacious!"

    The kitchen was well equipped and the heating was generous. The location was perfect for beach and high street and to explore the surroundings. Our main goal for the weekend was to spend the day on Orford Ness which is an easy drive South but we also loved the hides at the nature reserve at the North end of town (lots of ducks and a barn owl!) - and we are on the 'love it' team for the scallop!!

  • "Here we are again!"

    It was wonderful to return to 11 Crabbe Street + Aldeburgh. As usual, everything one could possibly need was provided so thank you. We relaxed in the cozy lounge in the evenings, reading & watching the world go by. Always a great pleasure to return to Aldeburgh. The opportunity for us to reset ourselves & be together. See you soon.

  • "Possibly the nicest cottage we have ever rented."

    Outstandingly clean, super facilities and tremendous foresight with all the small touches. If there was anything to comment on it would be the sofas which were rather uncomfortable leaving us , being older, with backache. Also, everything had instructions which enabled us to leave the house as the owner wished. Parking was much easier than we anticipated which had concerned us. Overall a super rental.

  • "We had a fab week in Aldeburgh and were blessed with the weather."

    The cottage was exactly as described and was done out to a high spec. with good quality furnishings and utensils. It had absolutly everything that you might need and was home from home, and felt very homely. The location was ideal. Close to the seafront and to the town. Could hear the sea while laying in bed. We had no problem getting parked at the free parking at the Moot hall.The prosecco and biscuits upon arrival was a very nice touch. Would have no problem recommending and would certainly revisit.

  • "Our first stay in Aldeburgh and what a wonderful place it is!"

    We have been blessed with a week of perfect weather and could not have asked for more. The house is perfect, so much thought has gone into the decor and visitors comfort. Parking was also no problem with a post 4pm move to outside for the night. The lighthouse was fantastic, so glad we ate there. They are very busy and we could only get a 6pm sitting, leaving at 7.45pm but still well worth it. Man thanks!

  • "Well, what a wonderful Cottage you have!"

    So comfortable & you have certainly thought of every gadget & utensil anyone could need :) We played some of the games for late night fun with a glass of wine. Hand soaps & sprays are delightful too. Magpie Bakery is excellent. Ate @ Brudenell Hotel & Regatta - both very good. Agree with previous comments that sitting outside the front people watching with a cuppa is so relaxing. Thank you Beccy & Ken, loved your holiday home. We'll be back for sure <3

  • "We have had another wonderful holiday in Aldeburgh + this cottage has been great."

    It's been upgraded to a high spec + has everything you would need. Loved getting some new ideas from the recipe booking, taking the boats out on the boating lake and the games. The garden is a great sun trap when it shines! Thank you for a wonderful week.

  • "It was our first time in Aldeburgh and we enjoyed a wonderful stay in your beautiful cottage - thank you!"

    Very well equipped, comfortable beds, good showers and we loved the bold wall colours throughout. The best bit was being only a 40 second amble to the beach, which was great to stroll along in both directions. We'd love to live in the Martello Tower! Whilst Europe sweltered in scorching temperatures, Suffolk had stormy winds, torrential rain, heavy grey clouds, then sun and blue skies, all in one day - very changeable! We enjoyed trips to Southwold and Thorpeness and will visit Sutton Hoo on the way home to Kent. Moot Hall and the little museum inside are worth a visit too. We mostly self-catered but had fish'n'chips from the Golden Galleon (yum!) and ate twice at Prezzo, with delicious pizzas and pastas.

    Dinner recommendations: Brudenell Hotel, Grandson recommends chocolate ice cream from over the road "best thing I have ever tasted2 (Thomas 15 months). It's been very hot so there's a long list of things we wanted to do - for another time.

    Such a perfect house, full of warmth and beautiful things. Thank you so much. The nicest place we've stayed in Aldeburgh by far. We enjoyed a beautiful walk in Dunwich Heath with a coffee stop at the National Trust. Very windy! But great fun. Such a pleasure, thanks again.

  • "11 Crabbe Street was such a lovely holiday cottage that we didn't want to leave at the end of our stay there!"

    It is extremely well-equipped, clean and comfortable. The location of the cottage is ideal for wandering along to the High Street in one direction or along the beach to Thorpeness in the other direction. We would happily recommend and return.

    Perfect location to explore the local area from. We were a bit concerned about car parking before we arrived but there was no issue at all. There is plentiful free parking by Moot Hall which is less than 100m from the house.

  • "The sun shone, the wind blew and the rain fell and we had a wonderful time."

    Probably the best cottage that we have stayed in in Aldeburgh (and we have stayed in alot!) - Thank you so much for making it a comfortable and relaxing place to be. We recommend walking to Thorpeness and then coming back along the back of the marshes on the disused railway line; driving out to the cae park just beyond the golf club then waking to Snape and back; and going across the ness at Orford.

  • "Lovely property."

    High end furnishing and finishes in a beautifully decorated home. Luxury bedding and curtains for a snug night. Location of the property fabulous for beach and town. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Staying here felt a treat because nothing was old ‘cast-off’ furniture dumped into the holiday home, including a great size tv for cosy movie nights.
