Seahorse Cottage is just a few steps from the beach at Aldeburgh, and enjoys uninterrupted views of the sea. French doors lead from the bedroom to a sunny balcony, great for leisurely breakfasts watching the sun rise over the sea. For those fancying a swim the ground floor shower will warm you after your bracing dip, whilst the first floor bathroom is ideal for relaxing after a long coastal walk.
A large, relaxing sitting room, well equipped kitchen and garden terrace all go to make this an ideal property for a special break for two.
Aldeburgh, a favourite seaside escape for artists, musicians and those with a penchant for fine food, 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 Seahorse Cottage.
