    Tamarisk is a house that provides space, comfort, easy access to beach and town and a great atmosphere.

  • "Lovely house that we have rented for 5 years each year just before Christmas ."

    Love all the rooms having en-suite . Location is great . Love the fire , the huge kitchen . If I had to be a bit picky I would say maybe needs a lick of paint on the walls going up the stairs . Just to freshen it up a bit , but other than that it’s a lovely house and always clean and warm .

    Thanks so much, Wendy for the feedback And really glad you enjoy tamarisk. We agree there are areas that do need paint. We make sure we book a couple of weeks a year for this kind of thing so appreciate your feedback. Hope to see you again soon. Property Owner

  • "Amazing house and location."

    This was our second visit and we will definitely be back. We all love the kitchen and spend most of the time round that table! The whole house is a perfect set up and the two bedrooms at the front are just dreamy with views to die for. Highly recommend this house and thanks to the owner for letting us use it.

  • "A lovely, comfortable, well-equiped, property in a stunning location."

    All four bedrooms are a great size, and avoided too much conflict over who got which room. The rooms overlooking the sea are perfect though! We have stayed many times in Aldeburgh, and surrounding area, and Tamarisk is certainly one of the best! We had a minor issue with the heating, but this was swiftly resolved by Best of Suffolk.

    Glad you enjoyed tamarisk and the heating issue was resolved. Property Owner

  • "I was going to write to you anyway but we were very disappointed with the standard of the house this year."

    To pay 5 star prices for a property which has not been kept immaculate was most disappointing. The walls on the half landing had many black scratch marks on it. The bed heads on bedroom 3 were not attached to the beds, so rattled against the the wall. There were marks and grease stains on the walls of that bedroom which we tried to remove but with no success. The towel holder in the downstairs loo, which had been repaired when we were at the property last year, was still loose and the wall has not been painted since. We have been going to the Tamarisk for many years feel it has not been kept to the standard we have enjoyed in the past.

    Hi Rosemary. Thanks for your feedback. We are always upgrading different areas of Tamarisk and annually ensure a range of repairs and upgrades are carried out. Thanks for pointing these out. It’s a busy property so some things do have to wait till there is the opportunity. We will endeavor to get them all resolved for a future visit. Property Owner

  • "Tamarisk is a great house for family or friends to stay in this is our 3rd time staying here and has everything you need."

    Well situated property for beach and shops etc. We all thought perhaps it would be nice to have better pillows on the beds or some extra spare ones in each room. otherwise always highly recommend this property.

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.
