  • "Our second stay at this lovely cottage."

    Everything we needed. Lots of character and nice sized rooms. Warm at night but not too hot in the day. Reasonably priced and available for 5 night break which suited us. We will be back. Love Aldeburgh out of season. Quite a few comments mention lack of kitchen equipment but the cottage is only for two!

  • "Perfect little cottage for a short break."

    We love that the cottage is dog friendly but pristine, has a wood burner, bath and a decent dishwasher. We've stayed several times and will keep coming back

  • "We really like the cottage and have stayed a few times before but sadly it's looking unlikely we'll return in future."

    Kitchen equipment was frustratingly basic, especially needed more plates. Worst part was the uncomfortable, worn out, very stained mattress! We had to strip the bed and turn the mattress, which only improved things slightly, as we didn't sleep well at all.

    Thank you for your feedback, we will check into the points you helpfully raise. Property Owner

  • "Aldeburgh is a lovely walking holiday location and the cottage had a careful, authentic restoration about ten years ago."

    We have stayed many times because we like visiting period houses and the location is excellent. We have felt on the last two visits that some things need attention (lack of crockery, radiator valve, lighting etc), but as yet not rectified. We inadvertently left a knife in the kitchen and were disappointed that this was not kept for return. The new Sykes website is clunky and made communications with the BoS team difficult.

  • "We had a wonderful week in Aldeburgh."

    Tiger cottage was very comfortable and just right for a couple. The welcome pack was heart warming. There was plenty of hot water and the central heating came on automatically when temperatures were low. The towels and linen were especially luxurious. The very steep stairs should be noted in the information as they could be difficult to manage (especially with luggage). An additional handrail at the top for safety? There were no instructions for the dishwasher, despite the welcome information saying it was in the cupboard, so we could not use it. There was an absolute minimum of crockery, cutlery and glasses. We could not have invited friends for a meal. In the bathroom the mirror light was not working. The lavatory seat was loose. Thanks.

  • "Disappointed After several holiday cottages booked through Sykes this is the first one that has disappointed me."

    Although overall it was clean I felt it needed a deep clean everything seemed a bit greasy. I always bring throws for the settees but the chair arms felt dirty There were no personal touches to make it feel cared for. Although the photos didn’t show a garden, the symbol noted a garden. Sadly that belonged to the other half of the cottage I hadn’t realised there was no back to Tiger Villa, that belonged to Hidden Cottage. Having a dog and no garden is not ideal The bins were shared between both cottages We were advised to leave rubbish bagged for the caretaker to dispose of!! Where were we supposed to leave it in a tiny kitchen, or outside for the seagulls to rip apart? No thank you We didn’t like to disturb next door as they had two dogs so we took it to the recycling centre at the top of the road Would I return to Tiger Cottage. No The welcome pack of crisps and wine were appreciated thank you

  • "Very convenient central location in this lovely seaside town."

    The sofas and the bed were extremely comfortable and there was plenty of instantaneous hot water for the shower and in the kitchen. There were a few niggles - the dishwasher refused to work despite lighting up, no cleaning materials, limited bathroom consumables eg half a toilet roll, and the front door was difficult to lock and unlock. inevitably perhaps the floorboards were very creaky and the stairs were steep so not one for the physically less able.

    Property was fine,nice and cosy,however due to the very poor eating facility's in the village there was no storage space to actually keep any food other than that the cottage was fine but completely over shadowed by the lack of facilities and prices in the village, very disappointing overall

  • "Lovely property in Aldeburgh, comfortable and well located in the quieter part of town."

    Only slight downside there was no outside table and no outside cushions.

  • "We found the property disappointing given we are frequent holiday makers to the area."

    The courtyard promised for our pet is in fact the walkway to the front door which is cobbled and right on the pathway There is no access to the back of the property. The stairs are very steep this is not noted. The house is well equipped albeit no pizza cutter. Its fair cleanliness but not fantastic for the cost wise but some blackout for the bedroom window would be appreciated for thin materisl curtains and maybe some clean mirrors be good. You should make it clear the Outside area is the walkway at the front of the property as no pet will use this. Im sure it will appeal to a few. We wont recommend.

  • "A good location close enough to the beach and the facilities and the cottage is comfortable, well appointed and fine for two people."

    Be wary of the steep stairs though. Personally I'm wasn't a fan of the floorboards - they are a bit uneven upstairs - but I suppose that adds to the authenticity of the cottage. There were a couple of maintenance issues that should have been identified and dealt with a while ago but I expect they will have been sorted out by now. But generally a nice cottage at the quiet end of Aldeburgh.

    The ants in the kitchen made any food prep very difficult in fact have only just stopped looking for them and I’ve been home awhile

  • "Tiger Villa is a lovely place to stay, warm and comfortable."

    Wi-if/internet connection was excellent, always a bonus. Parking was really easy, right outside the property (might be a bit different at peak times). There were just a few minor points: I struggled a bit with the stairs, very steep and with a bend towards the top, and it would have been helpful if this was mentioned in the property details. There were 3 remote controls for TV/satellite and it took quite a bit of trial and error to work out how to get iPlayer/Netflix etc. Similarly with the central heating control so some instructions for using these would be helpful. I couldn’t find instruction manuals for any of the appliances - again these would be helpful for things like dishwasher. I would definitely book again.

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!
