About the property

Comfortable Lounge Cute Kitchen/Dining Grd Floor Bed/Shower Enclosed garden WIFI

The Red Brick House - 4 Bed/3 Bath - is tucked just off the High Street on a cute pedestrian side street in a row of typical 'Suffolk Pink' and flint cottages - this larger airy property with its contemporary seaside décor is stylish and comfortable with plenty of space for all to come together or enjoy some peace and quiet. A great base for venturing out in Aldeburgh or further afield it is also a wonderful place to return for chilled wine and chilled evenings or a spot of sunshine and is close enough - a few paces - to the sea and High Street to pop back for lunch or that forgotten sun hat.

*Spacious lounge with leather sofas and cosy cushions, real flame gas fire and relaxed but chic décor* *Modern well equipped kitchen and dining area with French doors to the pretty enclosed courtyard garden with garden furniture and BBQ* *Ground floor twin bedroom and shower room with access to garden ideal for those with limited mobility* *Two Double bedrooms one with en suite plus one bunk bedroom and family bathroom* *Free parking very close by* *FREE WIFI*

* SAT TV*

*Whilst the location of the cottage on a pedestrian street means there is no offstreet parking there is free unrestricted parking available very close to the cottage - literally just a minute away.*

* Aiming to be a great place for both families or groups of friends to reconnect and create new memories The Red Brick House provides Welcome goodies such as tea coffee sugar oil spices etc etc plus tealight candles, beach blankets, playing cards, childrens and family games books some cds dvds etc etc.*

A highly fashionable destination for holidays and day trips, Aldeburgh remains largely the same as it has been for decades. While fishermen still sell their daily catch from huts on the beach, the high street boasts a number of award-winning restaurants and bistros.

Independent shops and galleries line the street and along with Snape Maltings Concert Hall, Aldeburgh provides the backdrop to a rich musical heritage, with Benjamin Britten’s world renowned Aldeburgh Festival of Music and the Arts held in June.

On the seafront, the Moot Hall houses the town’s museum and is a focal point, with its ancient timbers and outside staircase.

At the top of the Town Steps, leading off the High Street and up the cliff, there is a wonderful view over the roof tops and out to sea.

In nearby Leiston, the Long Shop Museum, provides a fascinating insight into the 250-year old engineering history of Richard Garrett, and Elizabeth Garrett Anderson, the first female doctor.

The RSPB’s flagship nature reserve at Minsmere is four miles from Aldeburgh and the National Trust’s Dunwich Heath, is just eight miles away.

Two miles from Aldeburgh, in Thorpeness, you can spend a day boating on the magical, early 20th Century Meare with its Peter Pan themed islands.

Tripadvisor Review Submitted by Guest

Spent a very pleasant weekend at the Red Brick House. We were a party of eight and there was plenty of room for everone. The house is well presented and equipped and didn't feel like a holiday let. Its position just around the corner from the high street is really convenient especially when coming back from eating at the excellent Lighthouse restaurant. The wifi was helpful as and only two of us had mobile reception. The welcome pack had everything we needed to get started and the provision of dishwasher tabs, washing up liquid etc was great.

All in all a lovely house and I would definitely stay again.

Perfect Suffolk location

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful weekend in Suffolk and the house suited our needs perfectly. The lounge is a particularly great space with lots of candles where were we gathered to enjoy a lazy evening after walking the coastline to Southwold and back. Great food is available right on the doorstep but the fresh smoked Mackerel we bought daily from the Fishermen Huts was a particularly popular treat. Great memories. Enjoy.
