Comfortable Holiday House, near Thorpeness (SFSEASF)

Great for the larger family or a group of friends, The Property has magnificent views over the sea; its garden leading directly on to the beach at Thorpeness. Booked in conjunction with The Pink House - the two properties are next door to one another - parties of up to 18 - 20 can be accommodated.

For the perfect beachside holiday, The Property in Thorpeness, on the Suffolk coast, will be hard to beat. Situated on the sea front at Thorpeness, The Property pre-dates the original development of Thorpeness at the beginning of the 20th century.

The Property:
Upstairs there are six bedrooms and five bathrooms, three with superb views over the beach to the sea; downstairs there is a further bathroom, dining room and comfortable sitting room. The large dining room leads directly from the kitchen and has a large table (an extension can be added) to accommodate 18 comfortably (20 with a squash for Christmas lunch). There is a games room to enjoy as well making The Property perfect for families and friends.

A good sized patio garden to the rear, parking for several cars and across the road a grassed garden leading down to the beach with a fire pit; perfect for long summer evenings and picnics.

Designed to be a refined seaside oasis for the middle classes, the village of Thorpeness was constructed so that the busy Edwardians could enjoy pleasures of the sea and beach in a garden oasis surrounded by the comfort and convenience of a country club. Every need has been catered for and Thorpeness, as well as being home to the famous folly, House in the Clouds, has an attractive Country club with tennis courts, superb 18 hole heathland golf course, an excellent pub and a village shop which sells both the essentials and a wide variety of delightful pre-prepared meals and culinary delicacies, as well as Thorpeness Meare, where you can sail, row or punt your way around the many little islands with their allusions to Peter Pan - try and find the crocodile!

Beyond the village, there are lovely heathland and seaside walks, with the opportunity for birdwatching at Westwood Marshes (RSPB) all a short walk away from the house. Nearby is Aldeburgh, home of the Aldeburgh Festival and home to several excellent restaurants. Also within easy reach are RSPB Minsmere, Dunwich and Southwold.

The Property overlooks the beach with wonderful sea views from many rooms. The area around the house is gated and largely paved with table and chairs and space for bikes, barbecuing etc. and includes a parking area in front of the garage.

A few steps across the road is the fenced grassed garden which leads directly onto the beach; again great for barbecues and games. Lie in bed and watch the seabirds, or sit around the log fire listening to the waves crashing on the beach in winter, The Property is a house for all seasons.

Ideal for any age group, The Property has six good sized double/twin bedrooms and bathrooms on the first floor, whilst downstairs there is a kitchen and two lovely reception rooms overlooking the beach, utility room and ground floor bathroom, ideal for the youngsters just in from the beach. Young or old there is lots to entertain with sailing, rowing, canoeing, punting, tennis and golf all within a couple of minutes walk.

Golf Courses in and around Thorpeness:

Thorpeness Golf Club is a 5-minute walk away. Set amongst the Suffolk coastal heathland, the golf course offers a tough challenge for all levels of player. Designed by James Braid in 1922, this Suffolk golf course winds through silver birch, pine trees, gorse and heather and was described by the Sunday Telegraph Golfing Guide as "Reminiscent of the inland glories of Sunningdale and Woodhall Spa".

Aldeburgh Golf Club The original Aldeburgh Golf Club course was designed in 1884 by John Thompson from Royal Wimbledon and Open champion Willie Fernie from Felixstowe and later modified by J.H. Taylor and Willie Park Junior. Taylor's bunkers are visible today, recognisable by their sweeping banks which curve both vertically and horizontally. The new heathland course was officially opened in 1908 and has hardly changed since. There are some long holes to tempt the big hitter but plenty of holes that require careful attention. There is also a smaller nine-hole course. It is 1.5 miles from The Property, Thorpeness.

The somewhat curious county of Suffolk forms a part of the region known as East Anglia. Its eastern edge is bounded by the North Sea, with neighbouring Norfolk to the north and Essex to the south. The county of Cambridgeshire lies to the west. It has no cities and no motorways, but it does have many gardens and ruins and history in spades, from the Magna Carta to the Saxon relics of Sutton Hoo.

Unusual (for Britain) timber-framed buildings, dating back to the 16th century, vie with Tudor mansions in the attractive streets of market towns. In common with Norfolk, it is a fairly flat county, with much of its area devoted to farming and other rural pursuits. Its coastal geology of sand and clay, combined with the longshore drift current of the sea, means that the land is eroding constantly. Sea defences protect many of the towns but, equally, a good deal of property has been lost as the cliffs are worn away, and more is threatened.

Suffolk is famous throughout the UK for its distinctive dialect, horse racing (the town of Newmarket is the epicentre of British racing) and the arts. Festivals and other shows are common, and fish and chips and Adnam's ale are the order of the day.

East of England

This region includes the ceremonial counties of Norfolk and Suffolk, Hertfordshire, Essex, Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire. With a rich heritage there is much to see and do to suit all ages. The royal residency of Sandringham Estate is a must see and other historical points of interest include Castle Rising, Sutton Hoo and Somerleyton Hall. The medieval cities of Cambridge, Norwich and Ipswich are not to be missed and there are lots of pretty market towns and idyllic seaside resorts to choose from for a day trip. Alternatively for a slower paced holiday you may wish to visit The Broads or Thetford Forest, these areas are particularly popular for boating and spotting birdlife.
