Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Meare House with friends, 4 adults and 5 children. We had an absolutely fantastic time. The property is outstanding with fantastic furnishings and everything we could possibly need. There was enough room for all of us without feeling like we were under each other's feet. Compared to other properties we have rented everything about it was magnificent and grand, especially the roll top bath in the main bedroom!

As for location, that was also perfect. Lovely views, fantastic coffee shop with great cakes just across the road and a lovely walk into Aldeburgh if you fancy it. Boats on the lake and a horse and carriage ride for the children, along with ice creams and then a lovely enclosed garden to run around in, they couldn't ask for more.

We will definitely be going back!

Lovely place, well equipped

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for dogs and kids, brilliant gates for kitchen and we'll equipped with lots of toys and cutlery/plates etc for kids. Lovely house with great size rooms and very warm. Brilliant location and lovely nearby pub selling very lovely food. Only slight niggle is the kitchen handles were a bit sharp and slightly cut myself on it.

Annual Family break

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house and position. Went with whole family - 3 families - grandparents 2 children with partners and 3 grandchildren ( + 2 dogs).

Layout perfect for everyone. Gates to keep dogs away from most rooms.

Only comments - in room with wet room attached - needs a bed side table for convenience of book, glasses and clock. Hanging space would also make the room more comfortable.

Furnishings and kitchen resources excellent.

We all loved the stay. Position is perfect near to the beach for walks and very good local pub. Family birthday while we were there and took advantage of the pub for a family meal - accommodated both children/baby and dogs.,

Would recommend to any one.

thank you for a lovely stay.

Fantastic Meare House

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I&our 2 7 month old dogs have recently returned from a perfect weeks stay at Meare House, overlooking Meare Lake in Thorpeness on the Suffolk Coast. What a beautiful holiday home!Easy to find, perfectly located in the centre of the village overlooking the beautiful lake with the beach just a few minutes walk away. We were delayed in arriving but with keys left in the keysafe we were able to relax and help ourselves to settle in. The house was clean and warm and is bathed with light nearly all day and we found everything we needed had been thought of and was easy to find and use (i.e Heating, TV, appliances etc). Although we were only 2 adults and 2 dogs we had friends from Suffolk for the day on the Sunday and the house was amply large enough and the garden furniture well used to host guests with ease and we had parents in law visit also for 2 nights and so the extra beds and baths were again put to use and a real bonus. The showers especially were great, v powerful and easy to use. And the bed in the master bed is super comfy and hard to leave but the suinshine we were blessed with adn the sound of the sea coming in thru the windows made us get up and out earlier than usual!! The dogs had a brilliant time&the baby gates that enable them to be econfined to the kitchen overnight without them feeling shut away were a great benefit to us.The garden is all secure&shielded well from passers by to be able to enjoy having the dogs (and us) outside for much of the day when we were not out exploring the many lovely walks - inc the beach walk to Aldeburgh and back (about 4.5miles) and many more routes to be found out and about. Cannot recommend this highly enough.

Further Details:

Thorpeness and Aldeburgh have long been a fashionable holiday destination but both have managed to remain unspoilt. It is still possible to watch the fishing boats come in and buy fresh fish from the many fisherman's huts on the beach in Aldeburgh (two miles from Thorpeness). Aldeburgh has several excellent art galleries and ever changing exhibitions and many fabulous boutiques and shops.The restaurants in Aldeburgh are really excellent and can accommodate all budgets and ages.If you don't fancy cooking the Golden Galleon fish and chip shop is a must! The local supermarket sells every thing you could need while the many Delis sell every kind of treat you imagine, including a fabulous selection of frozen gourmet meals, wonderful fresh breads and cakes. Adding to the temptations are the old fashioned sweetie shop and fabulous ice cream parlour.

Just up the road in Aldeburgh there are four new tennis courts that can be used on an hourly basis. The marshes close by are perfect for walks and anyone interested in Bird watching.
