Aldeburgh is totally devoid of deckchairs, candy floss, amusement arcades and flashing lights. The beach is long and shingly with sandy areas at low tide, and it is still very much a fishing town with a large marina ending in a massive Martello Tower.
The seaside town is crammed with fabulous restaurants, great pubs, boutique shops, quaint architecture, a vibrant arts scene and some great local fishing boats; which will sell you a freshly caught lobster or sea bass from their beach huts.
Lots of exploring is on offer too, with museums, castles, interesting arts & crafts shops and beautiful artwork such as Maggi Hamblings famous shell sculpture on the pebble beach.
It takes under ten minutes from our cottages to reach the prettiest seaside town in England. Our holiday cottages near Aldeburgh feature Cissy’s Cottage, Laundry Cottage, Queenies Cottage & Wren Cottage.
