The Old Library is utterly unique, beautifully furnished and with all those little extras so helpful to holidaymakers including wi-fi (phone calls free to landlines in the UK) and an iPod dock.
Set in the heart of the delightful seaside town of Aldeburgh, just yards from the beach, this exquisite building, once the local library and more recently an artist's studio, has been lovingly and tastefully restored to create the perfect state-of-the-art retreat for a really comfortable self catering holiday at any time of the year.
Aldeburgh, a favourite seaside escape for artists, musicians and families yearning for those special holiday breaks of yesteryear, is a pretty Victorian coastal resort. The inspiration for much of Benjamin Britten's music and centre for his creation - The Aldeburgh Festival - the little town still plays host to concerts, film, theatre and poetry festivals.
In the heart of the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Aldeburgh is an ideal location for bird watchers, walkers and of course sailors. The estuary, marshes and shingle banks are home to a wide variety of wildlife and there are sailing and yacht clubs at nearby Slaughden as well as the famous Aldeburgh and Thorpeness heathland golf courses just a few minutes' drive from The Old Library.
