About Helen Rogerson
My husband and I live in Suffolk with our three children.
Helen Rogerson purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why Helen Rogerson chose Aldeburgh
Aldeburgh has always been a home from home for me, as my parents owned a holiday cottage around the corner from Charlotte's Cottage as far back as the sixties, and all our summers were spent here.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage is ideally located for the beach, high street, tennis courts and sailing club which are all within easy walking distance. It's a great place for children and cycling, and with so many good restaurants, pubs and shops in the town there really is no need to get in the car.

Fantastic location, lovely cottage
Lovely cottage which is much more spacious than the front photo implies. The location of the cottage - steps from high street and water front is so convenient for a morning stroll along the beach or a quick trip to Aldeburgh Fish n Chips.
Another wonderful time!
Our third time at Charlotte’s Cottage for a week long holiday and once again we enjoyed the benefits of the house’s location to the beach and high street and also its comfort and well-kitted our kitchen etc. Very cosy on a cold spring evening! Thank you for a wonderful stay!
Lovely cottage in a perfect location
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.
Lovely friendly cottage
Such a charming cottage, close to the sea - tucked in a quiet road just behind the High Street. We had a wonderful stay!
Brilliant location, lovely cottage
We had a very enjoyable stay at the cottage, despite shocking rain on one of the days! My five and two year old daughters throughly enjoyed their stay too. The cottage had everything we needed. The cottage is in a brilliant location to explore Aldeburgh and enjoy this wonderful seaside town. We would highly recommend staying at this cottage.
Fantastic position and cozy cottage
We stayed at the cottage for 6 nights and had a fantastic time. Cottage very well equipped and clean. Fantastic position close to the town and the beach. Parking just around the corner. Great communication from Helen before our stay and a lovely chocolate cake on arrival which the children loved! We will definitely be returning.
Beach half a minute's walk away.
