  • "An absolutely beautiful little cottage, prefect for two wanting to get away!"

    Having the beach right on our doorstep was lovely for morning/ evening walks as-well as the town. The bed was very comfortable and it was lovely to have the separate mezzanine space! We would definitely recommend!!

  • "The stay we had at 51 Tern cottage Aldeburgh was very pleasant, very comfortable and clean ."

    Just the break we needed after a tough summer due to ill health , operation followed by treatment. Our little dog made herself at home but wouldn’t go in the courtyard we must admit didn’t realise it’s joint on to 53 it’s more like a passage way shame as the cottage it’s self is very homely . The locals were very friendly enjoyed our 4 night break , plenty of walks last walk was at 11pm for Bobbi to go to the toilet before bedtime she sleeps in her crate not a sound from her so she enjoyed her stay thanks again .

  • "We thoroughly enjoy our stay at 51 Tern Cottage."

    The property was beautifully decorated and provided a very cosy base to explore the surrounding area. The location was perfect, only a very short walk to the beach and just behind the high street, not far from fantastic fish and chips and a lovely local bakery! We will definitely be back!

  • "The front door needs an oil."

    Can be difficult to get key out. Mattress seems too big for bed because my husband fell out of bed. Doesn’t seem to be enough support on window side. And a lack of storage in bedroom. None in fact and there is no way I am climbing ladder to put my stuff in a drawer. Surely there is room for a tall boy

  • "Beautiful bijou one bedroom property with everything you need for a short stay, ideally located, nicely decorated and very clean."

    Would definitely stop there again. Thank you to the owners.

  • "We could not get the lounge lights to work, although the lights from the kitchen area were sufficient to remedy this."

    Our bin wasn't put out by the neighbour as the information pack described. This was annoying as the bins went unemptied and we've have happily done this ourselves. The bathroom door needs a hook for towels / dressing gowns! And lastly .. this is not really down to you, but the information could possibly be added to the info pack. The fish & chip shops fry in beef dripping, which is unheard of anywhere else. Absolutely no good to vegetarians! But we loved the stay generally, and we will use you again.

    Mattress a bit soft for us.

  • "We enjoyed our stay at this beautifully decorated and cosy cottage."

    Such lovely interior design! Great central location near the sea. It’s very compact and the stairs won’t suit everyone but it was fine for us. The heating was easy to work and responsive which is good now it’s not so warm. Enjoyed the bath. It’s a shame the shower doesn’t have a hand held attachment and were worried it might overflow. Could have done with some washing up liquid (had to buy some) and a dishcloth but otherwise very well equipped and found everything we needed. Appreciated the welcome gifts of wine,biscuits and milk. It’s a shame that the tv hasn’t been connected to the internet so that could get Netflix etc. I’m sure it’s possible to sort it out but we couldn’t manage so watched tv on a laptop instead. Would definitely recommend.

The quirks of this property are continued upstairs, where a king-size bedroom with a wood panelled feature wall creates a space to cosy down for the night, after you enjoy a refreshing shower or a soak amongst the bubbles in the contemporary bathroom, and the hidden treasure of this property is a mezzanine level found in the bedroom, where a wooden ladder leads to a level where you will find more storage and a wonderful snug, great for curling up with a book and a cup of tea.

Outside, breakfast can be had in the yard before you head out to explore the local area.

The beach is a popular place for groups and couples to enjoy the wonderful fish and chips throughout the summer months. The town is steeped in history and has become a wonderful town for shopping with a good mixture of independent and chain stores to enjoy. The town also offers a good selection of pubs and restaurants or why not buy some freshly caught fish from the huts on the seafront and cook up your own feast at home.
