Fabulous weekend gathering!

  • 5 of 5

Aldeburgh is one of my very favourite places in England. This house lives up to the photo's and description in every way. The service provided by the agent was excellent and I would highly recommend it. We had a fairly large family celebration weekend. There was plenty of space and everyone was completely blown away by it's stunning position, and the quality of the accommodation. The house was very clean and contained everything needed for a great, relaxing house party or holiday. We all wished we could have been there for a week!!
