Mariner's Loft Is A Well-Equipped First Floor Apartment

Overview

Property

Updated: 04-Dec-2016
Apartment in Aldeburgh, Suffolk, England - Peaceful location overlooking the comings and goings of the High Street

Mariners Loft is a modern apartment on two floors, part of the conversion of a former Mariner's Store. There is a small balcony at the back overlooking a tiered garden and excellent views of the High Street from a window seat at the front. All shops, restaurants and cafes are within easy walking distance. Aldeburgh has two good independent book shops and a thriving independent cinema. Local fishermen sell their freshly caught and locally-smoked fish from stalls on the beach. Aldeburgh is a good base from which to explore this part of Suffolk. We provide maps and details of walks both starting from the town or a short drive away. Aldeburgh has inspired many authors, poets and musicians, most notably Benjamin Britten. The annual Aldeburgh Music Festival which he co-founded in 1947 attracts visitors from all over the world. The August carnival is a big draw, as is September's annual Food & Drink Festival.

About the Owner

We (Richard and Caroline) live in Lewes, Sussex and have been visiting the coastal areas of Suffolk on and off since our children were little. Our first stay in Suffolk was Iken where we were captivated by the views, atmospheric and unspoilt landscape as well as proximity to Minsmere and the musical events at Snape.

When possible we shall also be booking in breaks for ourselves at Mariner's Loft, enjoying walking and exploring more of Suffolk. We very much hope that you will feel as 'at home' there as we do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautifully laid out apartment, in a lovely area. Snape Maltings and the walk to

Iken church breathtaking in its reedy, watery and ancient beauty.



Wonderful apartment, very clean and comfortable. Loved Aldeburgh's shops and

restaurants. Southwold's sandy beaches also lovely.

Really Lovely

  • 5 of 5

Superb apartment right on the High Street. Very well equipped with quality furnishings, etc and immaculately clean. Lots of information on the area in the apartment and was great to see lots of books, games, dvds to use. Cannot fault a single thing and we won't hesitate to visit again. A perfect stay and we loved it.

Great end to our summer

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay here, and it was even better than we remembered it to be. Very comfortable. The location is ideal for giving pre-teens/teens the freedom to explore the town by themselves. Being able to pop out for morning coffee/croissants etc. is such a lovely way to start the day - makes me wish I lived in the centre of a town! Great location for exploring the sandy beaches of Southwold (can recommend the new Sail Loft, Gun Hill, Southwold), crabbing in Walberswick, boating in Thorpeness and of course for Aldeburgh itself.

Perfect flat in Aldeburgh

  • 5 of 5

Mariner's Loft ticks all the boxes for a perfect place to stay in Aldeburgh - well equipped, well designed and ideally located right on the High Street, minutes from the beach and all the High Street essentials, from coffee to fish 'n' chips and everything in between. We know Aldeburgh well having stayed in the town with relatives for years, and this was the perfect place to stay on our own (two adults, two children, 7 & 9) for a big family event. Thank you!

Autumn break

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely lovely apartment. I spent an incredibly relaxing few days in Aldeburgh. The property is perfectly positioned in the High Street and is just like home from home. Perfect to come home to after an enjoyable day walking on the Suffolk coast. I cannot suggest any improvements.

Aldeburgh appartment

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a weeks holiday in Caroline and Richard's apartment, which was wonderful. The apartment is comfortably furnished and very well equipped and has an enviable position overlooking the high street. In our conversations Caroline and Richard could not have been more helpful.We have stayed in Aldeburgh many times but think this is the best.

Location

From the Owner

We stayed at Mariner's Loft on 3 occasions and felt really comfortable there. On trying to book a 4th stay (November 2012) we were taken aback to find that the apartment was for sale. Readers - we bought it! The previous owner was nothing but helpful and efficient and we hope to follow in her footsteps. We are currently making some minor changes only, but welcome your comments /suggestions.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Norwich International at 46.7 Miles Nearest Ferry : Harwich at 50 Miles Nearest Golf : Aldeburgh Golf Club at 1.4 Miles Nearest Train : Saxmundham at 16 Miles Nearest Beach : Aldeburgh at 100 Metres Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

Mariner's Loft is a short walk (5 minutes) from Aldeburgh beach. The beach is predominantly pebbly. A walk along the beach to Thorpeness will take about 45 minutes to 1 hour, passing the fishermen's huts on Aldeburgh seafront and Maggi Hambling's Scallop sculpture dedicated to Benjamin Britten.

You could walk there or back along the old railway track. We provide maps and guides.

Travel:

The nearest railway station is Saxmundham. There is an hourly bus service from Saxmundham to Aldeburgh (xx:23) until 19:20 but sadly this does not co-incide with the arrival of trains from London, which arrive at xx:40. There are however local taxi firms. Taxi fare from Saxmundham to Aldeburgh for 2-4 people: £11.00. Can be booked in advance from, e.g., Swift's on 01728 602986.

Distances:

Dunwich, 12 miles, 25 minutes

Halesworth, 17 miles, 35 minutes

Minsmere, 8.5 miles, 20 minutes

Snape, 6 miles, 10 - 12 minutes

Southwold, 18 miles, 35 minutes

Woodbridge, 18 miles, 30 minutes

Further Details:

There are two Co-op stores (one is next door but two, next to the Post Office, and the other, slightly larger about 3/4 mile / 15 minutes walk).

In addition to the fish sellers on the seafront there is a fishmongers / organic greengrocers with an attached cafe. Lawson's Delicatessen is opposite Mariner's Loft, providing home cooked food from local ingredients.

Aldeburgh has seven cafés / restaurants, all but but Prezzo being independent, plus take-aways and (of course) Aldeburgh Fish & Chips (2 shops).

Aldeburgh has numerous opportunities for coffee but, so far, no national chains.

There is a thriving Cinema with comfortable seating and a new digital projector.

Programmes and menus are provided for ease of reference.
