Oriel Cottage is a lovely dog friendly period cottage in a central location on the High street in Aldeburgh. Such a beautiful coastal village with plenty to see and do. Well equipped and clean and tidy!
Just spent 3 nights at the cottage - it’s really cozy, positioned on high street close to all amenities. Kids loved Aldeburgh (as we did) will definitely return - even the weather was good!
What a delightful cottage , very clean , well equipped and so cosy .. and so well positioned in Aldeburgh High Street .. we will definitely come again .. lovely for up to three couples .. Charming .
Fantastic location in the main high street. Even in winter is a perfect weekend retreat with a cosy log burner. Very comfortable and well appointed. We have also stayed in summer and this cottage is perfectly located to access the beach through a private tunnel.
Spent a fantastic week here for summer holiday, even the weather was good.
Not your usual holiday house, this is a beautifully appointed, pristine cottage to the highest standards; right in the middle of this idyllic town. Everything you need if you want to self cater or delis, supermarket and even fish straight from the fishermen on the beach - all within 5 minutes walk. If you prefer going out - the famous fish and chip shops, lots of lovely cafes, pubs and restaurants close by.
So much to do close by. Swimming in the sea ( do buy beach shoes locally as pebbles a bit hard underfoot ). Lovely cinema showing all the latest films, summer theatre in the Jubilee Hall, lots on at Snape Maltings up the road (lovely walk there along sailors path), bike hire, boat hire at Thorpeness, Benjamin Britten's house and museum, 2 golf courses an easy 9 hole and difficult 18 hole, good walks from the cottage along to the Martello tower or the scallop sculpture on the beach.
By car - a fantastic deserted sandy beach at Covehythe, beautiful church at Blythburgh, castle at orford and boat trips to RSPB Havergate Island, pretty towns Southwold,Woodbridge, Cold War museum at Bentwaters, amazing Pub at Dunwich (the Ship) followed by a walk to Dunwich Heath to Minsmere bird reserve (as featured on BBC Springwatch. A longer hours drive to Lavenham with amazing old buildings, including the Godrics Hollow house from Harry Potter films.
We can't wait to return
