Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday cottage in Aldeburgh - The Red Brick House

Comfortable Lounge Cute Kitchen/Dining area 4 bed 3 bath enclosed garden WIFI

The Red Brick House - 4 Bed/3 Bath - is tucked away on a cute pedestrian side street in a row of typical 'Suffolk Pink' and flint cottages - this larger airy property with its contemporary seaside décor is stylish and comfortable with plenty of space for all to come together or enjoy some peace and quiet. A great base for venturing out in Aldeburgh or further afield it is also a wonderful place to return for chilled wine and chilled evenings or a spot of sunshine and is close enough - a few paces - to the sea and High Street to pop back for lunch or that forgotten sun hat.

*Spacious lounge with leather sofas and cosy cushions, real flame gas fire and relaxed but chic décor* *Modern well equipped kitchen and dining area with French doors to the pretty enclosed courtyard garden with garden furniture and BBQ* *Ground floor twin bedroom and shower room with access to garden ideal for those with limited mobility* *Two Double bedrooms one with en suite plus one bunk bedroom and family bathroom* *Free parking very close by* *FREE WIFI*

* SAT TV*

*Whilst the location of the cottage on a pedestrian street means there is no offstreet parking there is free unrestricted parking available very close to the cottage - literally just a minute away.*

* Aiming to be a great place for both families or groups of friends to reconnect and create new memories The Red Brick House provides Welcome goodies such as tea coffee sugar oil spices etc etc plus tealight candles, beach blankets, playing cards, childrens and family games books some cds dvds etc etc.*

A highly fashionable destination for holidays and day trips, Aldeburgh remains largely the same as it has been for decades. While fishermen still sell their daily catch from huts on the beach, the high street boasts a number of award-winning restaurants and bistros.

Independent shops and galleries line the street and along with Snape Maltings Concert Hall, Aldeburgh provides the backdrop to a rich musical heritage, with Benjamin Britten’s world renowned Aldeburgh Festival of Music and the Arts held in June.

On the seafront, the Moot Hall houses the town’s museum and is a focal point, with its ancient timbers and outside staircase.

At the top of the Town Steps, leading off the High Street and up the cliff, there is a wonderful view over the roof tops and out to sea.

In nearby Leiston, the Long Shop Museum, provides a fascinating insight into the 250-year old engineering history of Richard Garrett, and Elizabeth Garrett Anderson, the first female doctor.

The RSPB’s flagship nature reserve at Minsmere is four miles from Aldeburgh and the National Trust’s Dunwich Heath, is just eight miles away.

Two miles from Aldeburgh, in Thorpeness, you can spend a day boating on the magical, early 20th Century Meare with its Peter Pan themed islands.

Tripadvisor Review Submitted by Guest

Spent a very pleasant weekend at the Red Brick House. We were a party of eight and there was plenty of room for everone. The house is well presented and equipped and didn't feel like a holiday let. Its position just around the corner from the high street is really convenient especially when coming back from eating at the excellent Lighthouse restaurant. The wifi was helpful as and only two of us had mobile reception. The welcome pack had everything we needed to get started and the provision of dishwasher tabs, washing up liquid etc was great.

All in all a lovely house and I would definitely stay again.

The property was very clean, well maintained and very welcoming.

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of five adults and two small children and we recently stayed at the cottage for a long week-end. It was definitely a "home from home" as everything you could possibly want or need was provided. The lounge and bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. The cottage was on a quiet pedestrianised road, close to the high street and the sea. So it was very convenient for a quick visit to the shops or a walk on the front or beach. The courtyard garden was lovely. We would recommend the cottage to our friends or family. The welcome pack was a nice surprise.

Great location to town and beach!

  • 4 of 5

We had a family long weekend break here and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The house is spacious although tight around the kitchen table! However it is in an enviable location just minutes from the town and the beach. The owner is great to deal with and thoughtful. Would highly recommend it but be prepared for a little outside pedestrian traffic noise in the evenings especially.

Fabulous House in the heart of Aldeburgh

  • 5 of 5

I would definitely recommend the Red Brick House to anyone who was thinking of holidaying in Aldeburgh.

A beautiful property located moments away from the beach and local amenities – it is ideal.

The house itself is well laid out and very comfortable. The house is fully equipped; everything we needed was on hand. This property is well maintained and very clean.

We were greeted with a welcome basket consisting of tea/coffee, bread, jam, butter and milk – which was greatly appreciated.

The bedrooms were good sizes and very comfortable.

The living room is well designed for entertaining. The décor is lovely and the many candles scattered around really set the atmosphere.

The owner’s were very helpful and I cannot fault their customer service. All information was sent to me very quickly and they were quick to answer other queries that I had. Communication was very easy.

Overall my friends and I really enjoyed our time at the Red Brick House and we would definitely like to stay again.

RED BRICK HOUSE -LOVED THIS PLACE

  • 5 of 5

This is a gorgeous house. We stayed over the new year. There were 7 adults and a baby and it was perfect and tremendous value. The rooms are decorated really nicely and there is a lovely sized lounge that easily accommodated the party.

One of the best things was it's location. It is quiet, yet bang in the heart of aldeburgh, a really lovely seaside town with lovely pubs and restaurants moments away. You can walk everywhere in minutes.

If you have a young family there's a cot and high chair already there.

Worth mentioning is the ease with which I dealt with the owner. She's great and gets back to your really quickly and gave good advice on where to eat etc.

Thoroughly recommended and we rent houses several times a year.
