About the property

House in Suffolk, Aldeburgh, England - Situated In A Small Friendly Village Overlooking A Protected Water Meadow. 30 Mins Walk To Beach

The cottage was a second home to us when our children were young, and has a family feel about it. There is a sheltered patio at the back and a garden to the side, overlooking a water meadow straight out of a constable painting.

there are some wonderful adnams pubs close by, including the eels foot in eastbridge itself, which is just a 200 yard walk away. It has great food, a garden and a small children's playground. Leiston (3 miles away) has all the shops you might need and there are plenty of good restaurants around. There is a wonderful bakers called smiths, in leiston, just opposite the cinema - lovely, old-fashioned, white bread. There is a grocers called baker bros also in leiston, which sells the most delicious ham on the bone. Highly recommended.

About Stephen Phelps

The cottage was a second home to us when our children were young, and has a family feel about it. It is looked after for us by the couple who live next door who take very good care of it for us.

Stephen Phelps purchased this cottage in 1980

Why Stephen Phelps chose Theberton

We bought in this area because of its beautiful countryside, wonderful access to beaches and cultural resources. It is ideal for walkers and those who love birds and other wildlife. It is rural and off the beaten track, though easily reachable from london and the midlands.

Owner's Response: Cooker hob, guilty. Will do better next time!. Kitchen sink, yes (getting a bit elderly and probably needs replacing). Bathroom tiles, no (the grouting is MEANT to be grey!). And yes, ideally situated for bird-watchers and/or those who enjoy a brilliant pub within 5 minutes walk.
