    “The cottage was well equipped and there were lots of extras like bread,milk,biscuits, bananas, coffee, tea and water when we arrived which was a very nice touch.”

    The bed was very comfortable and there is a good pub just down the road. The local village has a useful Co-op store and an interesting looking cinema although we didn’t visit this time. It is well placed for exploring Thorpeness, Aldeburgh and the RSPB reserve at Mimsmere by car. There is no WiFi which I think should be mentioned in the information on your site. It is a good place to visit in these socially isolating times!

The property

Outside this Aldringham cottage is an appealing, quiet rear gravelled garden, a lovely spot to sit and relax on a summer's evening.

One minute's walk from this Aldringham cottage brings you to the traditional local inn, whilst nearby Thorpeness offers tea rooms, a craft shop and a mere with rowing boat hire.

A few minutes' drive away is the RSPB reserves of Minsmere and North Warren, and there is easy access to beautiful heathland and the Suffolk Coastal Walk.

The popular coastal resort of Southwold is well worth visiting with its old world charm and painted beach huts, which can be hired in advance.
