  • "We had a great week in this terrific house."

    Everything is of the highest standard - decor, furnishings, appliances. The location is perfect for the lovely high street, the sea and the marches. We couldn’t fault it - and the huge ordnance survey map on the wall in the hall is absolute genius!

  • "We had an absolutely fabulous weekend in this beautiful and well equipped cottage, Was even better than the description on the website and we couldn’t have asked for anything more."

  • "A lovely house in a great position in the beautiful village of Aldeburgh."

    We appreciated the baby toys, stair gates and cots for our family party. (A fire guard might be a good idea.) The downstairs is spacious and very suitable for a family gathering. However we did feel it was a bit tight to provide only 3 or 4 logs for the fire. There was a very bare minimum of loo rolls and no toiletries other than hand soap ( empty in one bathroom). This is not what we have found to be the practice with other rentals and was just a bit disappointing.

  • "Lovely property, v thoughtful details and a lovely welcome."

    Beautifully decorated and the garden was stunning - wish we could have spent more time there! Just one small minor bit of feedback - it would have been lovely to have had some coffee pods to use with the machine that was provided, but that's a really minor complaint! Everything else was fabulous and I'd definitely recommend. Thanks so much.

  • "I hired Holly Lodge for a family get together to celebrate my 60th birthday."

    We were all very impressed as soon as we walked in the door. I have a very big family and this is the ideal property for a large gathering. This house is just lovely. Beautifully decorated, well maintained & spotlessly clean. The kitchen is fully equipped for everything & everyone. We had a full house Friday through Monday, with extra visitors for the day on Sunday. Even with 23 people (believe it or not, the whole family couldn't make it!) we never felt crowded, it's so spacious & well laid out. The games from the library provided so much fun & laughter and the TV wasn't turned on once! Staying at Holly Lodge was the cherry on the cake making this truly a birthday to remember.

  • "Holly Lodge is a family home and is therefore well equipped with everything you could possibly need."

    Everything was spotless and well maintained. Our only gripe is the too small recycling bin. The outdoor bin was overflowing when we arrived and resulted in us taking recycling home with us. For a property sleeping up to 10 a larger bin is necessary .

    5 minutes walk to the beach and shops and cafes. We really enjoyed our weekend in Alderburgh.

  • "A very enjoyable break in a spacious, comfortable and well equipped property."

    Just two minor niggles: the suction pads on the black-out blind have lost most of their adhesive power; and the blinds in the downstairs bedroom, on the right hand side has you face the window, require maintenance.

  • "A group of us stayed here on the Coronation weekend and it was fabulous!"

    more than we expected when we arrived. A lovely welcome gift, lots of information on the house and the local area, toys books and games for the children, a well stocked kitchen and a beautiful garden area. Which our dog enjoyed as much as we all did on the sunny days. The rooms were perfect for our group. Maybe just one comment would be to add curtains in the down stairs bedroom. Communication between Owners was brilliant when we needed something, We have already talked about returning and would recommend to friends.

  • "Lovely comfortable property with lots of bathrooms and extras such as toys, condiments etc."

    Door handles at front of house need maintenance - door knobs falling off and doors hard to open. We parked 3 cars which required a lot of manoeuvres but is doable.

  • "We loved our stay at Holly Lodge."

    A perfect house for a multi-generational family celebration. We appreciated all the space, and particularly having a bathroom for each bedroom (as we had the teenagers in tow!). The master bedroom suite was spectacular and even nicer (bigger) than in the photos. We could have done with a spare bin bag for the kitchen, and just a few extra plates to use for serving etc. We found just having 10 of each size was not quite enough when there were 10 of us staying. Also, we couldn’t really understand why there were two TVs in one room (we’d have made more use of the library room if the second TV was in there, for the kids to hang out). But these are really only minor niggles and we would definitely like to return another time.

    The clothes aired needs replacing as it had rust spots on the bars which were not realised. All the pale clothes are now stained with rust spots from this which have not come out. Not happy about this!

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!
