About Zoe McKeown

About the Owners: Zoe and Mark McKeown– we have three daughters and live in Cambridge. We love outdoor life and enjoy walking, beach life and good food. 2012 we decided to find a holiday home for us and our family so we could spend more time exploring and enjoying Suffolk throughout the year. We wanted Marquess House to be a home-from-home experience so we and our guests can travel light, knowing that everything you need to feel luxurious and comfortable is already there and catered for. Our children love Aldeburgh as we often came here in our VW camper van, but it is also nice now to be a short walk from the shops and the beach. It has been easy to integrate with the locals as they are so welcoming. The house has a perfect sized garden and 2 parking spaces.

Zoe McKeown purchased this house in 2008

Why Zoe McKeown chose Suffolk

Why we chose Aldeburgh: Aldeburgh is quintessentially English yet has a trendy atmosphere. It is a wonderful place for family holidays, young and old – those who enjoy walking, golf, tennis, sailing, beach, music & art galleries; restaurants & fish sheds for foodies and good pubs. You can walk to everything; it is the seaside in the countryside! I love the quirky shops and you really can buy everything you need here. It is easily accessed 2.5 hrs from London off the A12 and perfect to explore Suffolk and it’s coast.

What makes this house unique

Garden. Parking. Location. 3 good sized bedrooms. Travel cot, high chair and stair gate.

Charming house, great location

  • 5 of 5

Marquess House is on a quiet, private road up a flight of steps just off the high street. It is a great location, only a few minutes stroll to the beach and shops, pubs, restaurants etc on the high street. The house was clean and comfortable, with three good sized bedrooms (the master has a lovely bright dual-aspect) and a secluded garden. Perfect for a short break by the sea!

Perfect base for relaxing in Suffolk

  • 5 of 5

Another fabulous holiday in Aldeburgh. We loved exploring from here. The children were in heaven with a WII set up in their bedroom, and there is everything you need in the property for a great self catering holiday - including a great bar b q and a brilliant climbing tree at the bottom if the garden. The owners have thought about every little detail, and as it's now our second visit, it feels like a real home from home. Highly recommended.
