  • "Coys flat with sea view, warm and well equiped, What should be mentioned, that almost every room, including bathrooms are on different levels, so lots of steps, which is difficult for people with walking impairement."

    Onb the high street with shops in easy reach

    We are sorry the stairs were a bit of an inconvenience. We do go out of our way to mention them in our description for those who cannot take them. We find once up the main flight of ten or so steps they are not too bad AND without the stairs we all would not be able to enjoy the fantastic view which we love so much. Property Owner

  • "Our 4th year and yet again it didn’t disappoint!"

    Just love this flat – the lounge with sea views and the kitchen- it feels home from home. The balcony is a bonus, we enjoyed breakfast in the sun.

  • "We had a lovely stay."

    The flat is in a great location. So lovely to have sea views and a balcony. The close proximity to the boating lake was ideal for the kids!

  • "The property & location - not to mention the view!"

    - are close to perfection.

    We are so pleased you enjoyed staying in Crabbe House. It is our holiday home and we have tried to equip it to the same level as our own house. We also enjoy the view both from the living room and the balcony. Property Owner

  • "We’ve been staying here for years."

    Decor and furnishings could do with some updating but that’s being very picky. It’s a lovely apartment in a great location.

    We have just completed a full internal re-decoration of the property and this includes the balcony. Property Owner

About the location


Thorpeness 2.1 miles; Saxmundham 7.2 miles.

The popular, vibrant seaside town of Aldeburgh is famous for its culture, traditional feel and one of the best fish and chip shops in the country! Aldeburgh and Snape Maltings are home to one of the world’s greatest music festivals and has been named as one of the top 50 places to live in Britain. Crag Path runs along the seafront dividing the beautiful pebbly beach from the unspoilt pastel-coloured seafront properties and the town. 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. For those wishing for a more action-packed holiday there is excellent walking, cycling, sailing and golf at Aldeburgh. Growing in popularity you will want to return to Aldeburgh again and again!
