  • "We had a fantastic holiday in Aldeburgh."

    Hidden Cottage is beautiful, really cosy and comfortable and we loved the huge back garden for our dog. It is also perfectly situated in Aldeburgh, close to the beach, and the main High Street. We will definitely be coming back. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

  • "We loved the cottage, the character and garden."

    Yes the stairs are a challenge but you get used to them. The bed is very comfortable but the sofa is less so. Would have liked to have cleaned up during and at the end of our stay to make sure the property was handed back in good order, but the brush and dustpan is not up to the job. Appreciate that storage space is limited but a small hoover or a long handle broom would certainly help. Location is great, easy walk to all that the town has to offer.

  • "A lovely property which was quirky and a pleasure to stay in."

    We loved the attention to detail and the large garden. However it was a bit strange for the guests staying in the other half of the cottage to come through to the garden to use the bins.

  • "We really loved the cosy bolthole of a property, perfect as a base to explore the Suffolk coastline."

    Super close to the amenities of the high street and the sea.

  • "A quaint very clean, well equipped cottage, smaller than expected, lovely garden although shocked to see the occupants of tiger villa walk into our garden to deposit their rubbish in the bin - not being made aware of this did make us feel the cottage was not private and then we wasn’t sure when they would wander back into the garden, we enjoyed exploring aldeburgh and the surrounding areas."

  • "Excellent location for this cottage being a short walk into town, the beach and beautiful river walks."

    The cottage is small but adequate & a lovely welcome basket of goodies was provided. The garden is large and lovely chairs provided to sit out. The bedroom is quirky with its slanting squeaky floors and a very comfortable bed! The stairs should be listed more as a ladder than stairs..they have very small treads and are very narrow! More emphasis should be placed on this on the cottage description! The hot water supply is not consistent and not enough for a bath and occasionally does cut out in the middle of a shower! It would be a benefit to supply some cleaning products so that you don’t have to buy kitchen & bathroom cleaners for a weeks holiday. Also we where unable to locate any floor brushes or even a dust pan and brush which would be useful.

The property

Small but perfectly formed, Hidden Cottage is a hidden gem tucked away in the heart of Aldeburgh, Suffolk.

The ideal destination for a romantic getaway, the property has everything needed for a relaxing and enjoyable stay.

Inside, the accommodation has been lovingly restored by the owners and promises guests a welcoming break.

The sitting room is suitably inviting with a rustic seating area and a feature fireplace and the traditional kitchen has all that is needed to create delicious food for your loved one with a delightful dining table all set up for intimate meals for two.

Outside, the fully enclosed large gardens are a real feature and offer the perfect opportunity for spending time together alfresco and if you have a dog, is a great space for them to run around in and burn off some energy!

Come bedtime and there is a crisp, white bedroom with a sumptuous king-size bed just asking for you to sink into.

Make sure you have a long soak in the gorgeous roll-top bath or if showers are more your thing, then have a refreshing shower before heading out for the day.

Right on the doorstep are the delights of Aldeburgh with its beach, shops, eateries and there is even a museum so a great place to spend a day.

Just further along the coasts are the captivating towns of Thorpeness, Southwold, Walberswick and Dunwich, all beautiful seaside resorts so make sure you pack a picnic and bucket and spade.

Some fantastic days out from Hidden Cottage include Framlingham Castle, Africa Alive Zoological Reserve, Adnams Brewery, Go Ape Thetford and Somerleyton Hall.

Take a boat trip or go sailing anywhere along the coast or head inland for some fabulous walks anywhere within the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Natural Outstanding Beauty where you will be rewarded with some breath-taking views.

A real hidden gem in the heart of Aldeburgh, Hidden Cottage is the perfect romantic retreat.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

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!
