  • "My wife and I were very disappointed with our stay at your cottage in Aldeburgh."

    We only stayed 2 out of 4 nights because out of all honesty the accomodation was totally inappropriate for us, both in our 80s. The steep staircase had no hand rail and was lethal especially coming downstairs. The bathroom door opened outwards onto a small landing at the top of the stairs and there was a huge risk of falling back down them - there should have been a safety gate. Surely when you are advertising you should make mention whether it is suitable for elderly people. Additionally, the television was intermittent, dangerous bunk beds sticking out and we both hit our heads severely. The courtyard is dreary and unwelcoming to sit in and the front garden in much need of attention. We are not whingers, but we are very, very disappointed by the lack of space and the dangerous facilities which meant our holiday was cut short.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are saddened to hear that you booked a property that was not entirely suited to your needs, and this affected your enjoyment of Aldeburgh. As per the photographs and description, Mariners Cottage has been renovated to a high standard to make the most of the limited seaside cottage space. We do note that the property may not be suited to those with limited mobility, and provide an image of the stairs with no handrail on the website, to ensure guests are aware of the style of property prior to booking. There is also images showing the style of installation of the bunk beds to make the most of the space available, in what is listed as a childs-only bedroom. Our team at Best of Suffolk are always available to discuss properties directly with guests, and will go out of their way to ensure you book one that is suitable to you. We hope that we can find the perfect property for you in future, that is better suited to your needs. We hope to welcome you back to Aldeburgh again. Property Owner

  • "So , lovely small cottage , very clean, well equipt ."

    Ideal for short stay, shower small for tall men ! Gubbins under tv , various bits could be tidied up . Lovely little shared courtyard , needed tiding , weeding would make it much more inviting for alfresco dining . The childrens bunk beds, although nicely finished are badly designed , unsafe for young children .

  • "Mariners Cottage was a wonderful holiday home, beautifully furnished, stylish and extremely comfortable."

    Enjoyed using the courtyard for outside eating (and meeting the lovely neighbours!). One of the best cottages ever stayed in. Only 5 minutes from the shore, so easy to enjoy 'living' in Aldeburgh and also to walk along the coast in both directions. And a great base for exploring further afield. Loved it! Highly recommended.

The property

Enjoying a superb location near the centre of bustling Aldeburgh, Mariners Cottage is a small, but delightful cottage, which has been given a contemporary overhaul and offers stylish accommodation suitable for a couple or small family.

The spacious open-plan living area is bright and airy with the crisp white walls and floors helping to add light and depth to the area.

There is a delightful sitting area complete with a flat-screen TV, so whether you want to gather together to catch up with each other or just chill out and watch telly, this is a great space.

Step into the compact but fully equipped kitchen and you will find everything needed to be able to produce healthy food for your holiday party and there is also a stylish dining area, which has been set up ready for long, lingering meals together.

If the weather allows, then you can always eat alfresco in the delightful patio courtyard to the rear of the property.

When it’s time for bed, there is a gorgeous master bedroom complete with a sumptuous king-size, which you can imagine sinking into after a tiring day of getting out and about exploring and for the kids, there is a cool bunk bedroom.

Grab a refreshing shower in the morning and you’re good to go.

The delights of Aldeburgh are within a short walk of the property with the beach close by and an excellent range of shops, bars, restaurants, pubs and independent boutiques.

Travel along the scenic coastline to other seaside towns such as Southwold and Thorpeness, or head out for the day to attractions like Snape Maltings, Framlingham Castle, Africa Alive Zoological Reserve, Sutton Hoo, Go Ape Thetford and Adnams Brewery.

The Suffolk coast is a great place to try out some watersports including canoeing at Iken, kayaking at Beccles and river cruises along the river Deben, or head out into designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Suffolk Coast and Heaths region, for some fantastic walks and hikes.

For a quintessential seaside break with style and panache, book a stay at Mariners Cottage.

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!
