  • "We have stayed two or three times previously and keep coming back."

    It's a lovely place; comfortable; high quality furnishings; well equipped; great location.

  • "This an excellent property set in the town centre and ideal to enjoy local restaurants, shops etc."

    It is on two floors above a bookshop. Spacious and modern interior, it has been nicely decorated with plenty of storage and equipped with everything you might need. It was a perfect location to explore this part of the Suffolk coast. There is time limited parking restrictions on the High Street so you have to park on side street to rear but only a few minutes walk away so not a problem. Wouldn't hesitate to return.

  • "Very pleasant stay."

    We were very lucky with the weather. The only issues for us was the access and the stairs because of aged knees etc., and the dining chairs could be a bit more comfortable. TV apps could do with being updated, streaming not great. However, this didn't stop us enjoying our stay.

  • "Overall the property was of a high standard, clean and comfortable."

    However a little more detail on parking availability would have been appreciated prior to arrival. (e.g. distance away and steepness of access to areas of free parking. The limited time and duration of on street and car park parking.)

  • "“We had a lovely stay at `Meant To Be, it really felt like a home away from home and we will definitely be back when we are next exploring the Suffolk Coast."

    One of the best holiday apartments that we have stayed in, especially liked the walk in shower and the great hob and oven - so rare to get such top of the range kitchen equipment whilst on holiday!"

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!
