At The Property, you are perfectly positioned to explore the beautiful seaside town of Aldeburgh with the beach just a 5 minute walk away.

This property is ideal for: One or two families, or groups of friends. With two floors of bedrooms to choose from you can enjoy some privacy whilst sharing the kitchen and sitting room.

Exploring: Aldeburgh and neighbouring Thorpeness have so much to offer whatever your holiday interests; for sailors there is both a yacht and sailing club with sailing on the estuary and the sea, whilst those with an occasional interest in boating can enjoy boating on the Meare at Thorpeness (rowing boats, punts, canoes, sailing dinghies or a trip on one of the boats plying up and down the estuary from Slaughden). The near by tennis courts are available to members of the public. Walkers, cyclists and bird watchers can enjoy a myriad of unique habitats from coastal landscapes to heath and meadow land, estuary mudflats to woodland footpaths in a single walk. Fishermen should bring their rods; there is fine fishing on Aldeburgh beach from cod in winter to sole, flounder and school bass in the summer. Bikes can be safely stored in the garage.

Aldeburgh is famed for its annual music festival, but there is a year round programme of arts events from documentary and poetry festivals to art exhibitions and of course the summer theatre - not to be missed. Dive right into the multitude of opportunities that this beautiful area of Suffolk has to offer; from local history to dog- friendly scenic walks, as well as annual events such as the Aldeburgh music festival, soak up the cultural delights of this wonderful location.

Self Catering Eating and Drinking: You won't need to travel far to stock up on the essentials. Aldeburgh High Street is packed full of independent local food shops and cafes. On the approach to the town there is a Co-op and Tesco Express Store offering a wide range of familiar goodies, as well as Friday Street Farm Shop, selling home-grown fruit and vegetables. For fresh, locally sourced food, simply walk down the High Street, stopping off at Salter and King butchers, Aldeburgh Market (also with a small cafe), Lawson's Delicatessen and Adnams for a bottle of wine.

Eating and Drinking Out: Aldeburgh High Street is full of eateries; you will certainly be spoilt for choice! The Wentworth is the closest restaurant to The Property, only a short walk away. This Michellin recommended restaurant offers the best in locally produced food and drink with panoramic views of the sea and provides a wonderful setting whatever the occasion. For an evening pint, head to The White Hart; whilst there be sure to try one of their pizzas, cooked in a wood-fired oven. However, no trip to Suffolk could be complete without trying the town's world-class fish and chips: there are two great fish and chip shops in Aldeburgh high street, both with a fantastic reputation... you may have to queue at busy lunchtime periods but it will be well worth the wait.

Minimum Hire: Three nights, except in high season when it is a week. Changeover is usually a Friday. Long weekends and mid week breaks available, except from early July until the end of August, and the Christmas and New Year period.

LocationAldeburgh

Aldeburgh has a pretty beach front with colourful villas and stunning views both seawards and inland to the River Alde. As well as a boating lake, there is also a yacht club which offers lessons and the high street has a wide range of craft and boutique shops, antique stores and a few pubs to choose from. The town is famous for is its ties to the composer Benjamin Britten and the Aldeburgh festival is a great celebration of classical music, there is also a vibrant music and arts scene with many art galleries through the resort.

Although much of the original town has been lost to coastal erosion there are still a few fascinating Tudor buildings including its Norman church, the Moot Hall which also houses the local museum and the Martello Tower, a defensive tower at the mouth of the peninsula. For a shopping day out, visit the Snape Maltings art centre which has gift shops, galleries and the concert hall which has a diverse programme of music throughout the year.

The surrounding area of wetlands and heathland are home to many rare species and moor ponies. Guided walks are available from the RSPB, or you can take a stroll along the estuary. The Meare at nearby Thorpeness is well worth a visit; here you can hire a boat or canoe and take a leisurely sail around the lake.

Suffolk

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.
