This beautiful romantic cottage is in a prime position on Aldeburgh High Street located just a minutes walk to Aldeburgh beach, shops and restaurants. This iconic and charming property is believed to be one of the oldest in Aldeburgh and is thought to date back to the 18th century. The property has distinctive and unusual stone steps leading to a high level front door – the possible entrance for the Custom office – with storage below, perhaps for contraband. The cottage has been tastefully modernised to make it perfect for couples looking for a getaway to explore the beautiful Suffolk coastline.
