  • "This is a lovely little cottage, and even with 4 adults, it was cosy and warm and has great quirky bits."

    Love the outside utility room, warm and excellent for drying wet clothes, and the shoe room under the stairs is good. Kitchen small but even so, ideal for cards and games on a winters night. Excellent location. Minor points; couldn't work out the toaster, and the light switch in the lounge felt as if it might not work soon!! Downstairs loo, the flush is so powerful it sometimes shoots water over the side.

  • "This is a lovely cosy cottage in an ideal situation near the sea and the High Street."

    We had a wonderful week. The cottage was very comfortable and well maintained. The kitchen and downstairs bathroom and sitting room were brilliant. The upstairs shower was not brilliant as on full power it threatened to overflow but apart from this all good. Aldeburgh is a great place to be- beautiful walks, lovely pubs and cafes nearby and lots to do.

    We are glad you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for letting us know about the shower, this is now flowing freely. Property Owner

  • "Adleburgh Cottage."

    5 stars for us. A short 4 night break with the dogs. Aldeburgh Cottage was perfect for two adults. Kitchen well equipped, brilliant oven and dishwasher. Nice that they left clean Tea Towels, and scouring pad and dishcloths. Owner has taken care of this little cottage, downstairs bathroom v nice. Living room v cozy. Little Smart tv fine, v comfy settee. Upstairs master bedroom, rustic and nice, the ensuite is great, the shower was different to what we are used too, but it was fine, got you clean. Take a shower cap if you don’t want wet hair. The twin room not used by us but looked ok for small kids. The stairs are steep but expected for this type of cottage, if you are tall be prepared to duck in a few places. Brilliantly located at end of lovely high street, lots of shops, restaurants and nice pubs. Two mins from lovely beach stroll, dogs not allowed on town part of beach between May - Sept 30th but ok by the scallop sculpture check the signs. Lovely walk to Thorpness about 3 miles. Parking is tight at the rear of the cottage and appears to be on first come basis or a shuffle around between cottages. Plenty of side street parking. Would love to book for xmas time, or another short break in Aldeburgh. Highly recommended

  • "Dirty floors."

    TV without terrestrial channels, presumably too tight to pay for a TV licence. Terrible bed, like a rock. Taps bizarrely turn the opposite way to every other tap I have ever used. Key safe so old and clunky to use.

    Thank you for your feedback. We have checked the TV and the terrestrial channels are working fine. It's helpful to have your other comments too. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage."

    Great location. Very useful back yard/garden and outside utility storage building. Well cared for and maintained throughout. We even had a visit from the gardener for the front of the property, while we were there. Only let down by a lot of dog hairs on the sofa. We stripped it down and gave it a mega hoover. Rest of the house was okay. We did not have a dog with us so this was from previous visitors. Aldeburgh Cottage is a lovely place to stay.

  • "Really lovely stay."

  • "We enjoyed our stay at Aldeburgh Cottage, but on our arrival the following points needed attention: 1 The television didn’t work."

    Was showing ‘no signal’. Took 2 visits by Jacob to sort it out. 2: The string of lights over the kitchen sink didn’t work. 3: The bedside lamp in the twin bedroom kept flickering. The lower oven didn’t come up to temperature and the bulb had died. Also: 4: The window in the double bedroom doesn’t open- it has been painted shut. I note that another guest has also noted this. Please rectify this as the room was very stuffy in hot weather. 5: There were only 4 forks: need a few mor 6: There were only 3 drinking tumblers (for a cottage for 4 people?) 7: The gutter above the kitchen door was blocked with detritus. 8:There was a cracked pane in the kitchen window(Jacob made a note of this). 9: The little cap on the cold water tap in the en suite kept coming off. 10: The cottage was very clean but there was a huge cobweb in the downstairs bathroom!

  • "The cottage is very comfortable and perfectly located in a quieter part of town, with easy access to the beach."

    It’s well maintained, very clean and pretty well equipped. I would certainly recommend it to friends, with the proviso that the stairs might prove difficult to anyone with mobility problems.

  • "The property needs some attention, particularly the en-suite where I would question the need for a hygienic floor covering particularly around the loo."

    Cleaning of 'corners' also could be better. Very few windows open and main bedroom is painted closed. However, all said we enjoyed our stay and the property is ideal for a family with 2 small children.

    Perfectly situated. Very clean . But a little attention needed here and there Parking behind the cottage wasn’t really possible as cars wouldn’t be able to pass either way and we didn’t want to block anyone in . We had a lovely stay at aldeburgh cottage . We will be back 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!
