We had a week stay over new year here and it was all great. Perfect location, right by the beach but on a quiet road. The kitchen has everything you need, and the house overall was very warm and comfortable. Helen was a very responsive host.
Oakley House is full of character and tastefully decorated and we especially loved the location. We felt very cosy with the Aga and large country style table in the kitchen which overlooks the seafront and passing walkers. Cooking our Christmas lunch in the Aga was definitely not easy and proved very challenging and we wouldn't recommend cooking for large numbers, especially if you have not used an Aga before. The Drawing Room on the first floor was our favourite place to view the early evening sunsets. Aldeburgh High Street was literally a few steps away and, as it was Christmas, the street decorations were very festive. The Master Bedroom on the first floor was very comfortable with ensuite bathroom. A second bathroom next door was for all the other guests. The Double Bedroom on the ground floor was small but comfortable. There was nowhere to hang clothes except the back of the door. The 2 top floor bedrooms were very small - Bedroom 3 housing 2 bunk beds with slim mattresses and Bedroom 4 with 2 beds that took up almost all of the space and made it feel rather claustrophobic. But the house is gorgeous and the location amazing and we did enjoy our stay in Aldeburgh.
