  • "The Regatta Lookout is the best place we have ever stayed at."

    We travel all over the country using all types of accommodation but this truly was the best . All 4 bedrooms were large with en suite in all. The kitchen diner superb and two beautiful lounges. No expense was spared to make this holiday home the best.

  • "Regatta Outlook totally exceeded all of our expectations."

    We have walked past it so many times and usually book a beachfront house but this property caught our eye and we are so pleased it did - definitely the best so far! Everything is to such a high standard in this beautifully appointed family home - welcoming and warm with detailed appliance instructions. We would all love to return.

  • "This property was even more spacious than it looked!"

    There was plenty of room for 8 of us, and each bedroom was beautiful and comfortable. The kitchen was large and very well equipped. We had a really great break, walked everywhere and will be back!

    Great feedback. Please excuse the hot water issue. I had a look and the boiler it had tripped, I’ll get a note up to advise future customers. My number is on the welcome letter if there are any snags on any visit. Property Owner

  • "We are four couples , who spend a week together every year in a different area of Britain, for a mostly walking holiday."

    This year was outstanding. Regatta exceeded all expectations - a huge flat, with wonderful facilities - we wanted for nothing. We loved the outside seating too, even at the end of September- a beautiful space. The ease of parking in the road behind, with direct access. We had wondered, but not once did we hear the restaurant below- and we loved eating there. Staying so centrally in beautiful Aldeburgh was a joy and we even walked to swim first thing some mornings in the sea. It was a thoroughly wonderful flat and we would recommend unstintingly.

    Great see to you, glad you had a good time. The weather was rather good for the time of the year. Thank you for leaving it so tidy and fir putting the rubbish out. Property Owner

  • "Top quality accommodation, our every need was catered for."

    Spacious roomy bedrooms with lovely decor and great beds with high end bed linen made for a very comfortable nights sleep. Location on the high street was perfect as everything literally on the doorstep. We celebrated my husband's 70th birthday with our son and his family and all had the best time. We would not hesitate to book again.

  • "A stunning property, we were a group of 4 couples and it suited us perfectly."

    The house was well kitted out for all our needs. The central location meant we can pop out any time to pick up amenities! The host, Rob, was so helpful, which made our stay even better! On arrival we were welcomed with a lovely note explaining the highlights of Aldeburgh and Rob had also left us some wine and an abundance of snacks to enjoy. Will be returning here in the future for sure! Thank you Rob!

    An absolute gem of a property.

  • "We were absolutely blown away by the accommodation!"

    It was in a fantastic location, right on the high street above a restaurant. It wasn’t noisy at all, you wouldn’t have know it was below. We got parking spots in the road behind no problem. The accommodation exceeded our expectations and was perfect for 8 of us to stay. Plenty of room for everyone, we felt comfortable and had everything we needed, we really loved it and we really hope to return. Thankyou!

  • "A beautiful property, with a very well equipped kitchen."

    Every where was so clean. We were expecting a first floor toilet but couldn’t find one . Also a washing machine would have been a bonus.

    You had the half lookout option which wasn’t on the side you were on, it should have been made clearer in the description, sorry if it was not up to your expectations. 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!
