Such a beautiful house, well equipped and layer out in such an enchanting area. There is so much to do and so many places to visit with everything set in a place where the modern day rush does not exist. Thorpeness and Aldeburgh are picture post card towns with a wonderful relaxing pace of life and the house on Lakeside Avenue fits right in to the mood of the area but with all the mod cons required for us that cant quite leave the rat race behind ..
Very comfortable house, well equipped and large. We really enjoyed our week there. Suffolk was new to us and Thorpeness was a good base. We walked to Aldburgh, and used the car for short journeys to Sutton Hoo, Orford, Framlingham, Dunwich, Walberswick and Southwold.
This property was perfect for our family of all ages. The garden was great for the small ones and very safe. Local pub and Meare only a few minutes walk, as is the beach and the golf club. Highly recommend. Mr & Mrs Bolingbroke
Thorpness is located on the east coast of Suffolk 1.5 miles from Aldeburgh. It is a purpose built holiday village focusing a central mere which provides boating jaunts, ice creams and is within a short walk to the shingle beach.
The property is in keeping with the area and enjoys a quiet off road location.
We had initial difficulty in finding all the various keys to french doors, back doors and annex etc. It would help if they had been located in one place/dish rather than hung around different spots.
There is a disappointing lack of wardrobe hanging space aside from a few hooks on the backs of doors. The owner advised one bedroom was being addressed, but in the "Granny Annex - there is ample room on the mezzinine for the water system which apparently was in the wardrobe.
The cleanliness of the French/Back doors was unacceptable and the plastic table cover was very sticky. Given the owner advised contract cleaners took care of the property. Quality control needs to be in place as they are not doing their job.
We could not close the lounge door to minimize noise when children sleeping
Overall this property suited our holiday requirements for space and location, plus the owner was exceedingly helpful when I left our freezer block in the freezer.
