Sun Cottage (SUNCOT)
About the home
This detached holiday cottage, tucked away just off the bustling high street of the Suffolk seaside town of Aldeburgh, has a stylish clapboard exterior in keeping with its coastal location. Aldeburgh's shingle beach, fishermen's huts, colourful painted cottages, cosy pubs and historic Moot Hall, are just some of the attractions of this charming seaside resort. The Yacht Club and Championship Golf Course, offer pleasant diversions, as does the outstanding programme of music and arts from Aldeburgh Music in nearby Snape Maltings.
Recently converted into a holiday home, Sun Cottage has a spacious interior and benefits from plenty of light from three sets of french doors, which open on to the paved terrace surrounding the house. Entry into the cottage is to the open-plan kitchen/dining/living area: the galley kitchen has useful island unit with four stools and a breakfast bar, as well as a pretty pine table for informal dining. Just to the right of the kitchen is a separate sitting area with sofa and chairs, creating a lovely sociable space.
The second sitting room is a light, sunny room with calming colours, wood floor with rugs, and two sets of french doors to the south-facing, terraced garden. A corner sofa and occasional armchairs, together with 27" flat screen TV with integrated DVD player and an attractive selection of artwork, make this a very relaxing room. The ground floor also has a spacious shower room/laundry room with two useful cupboards with hanging space.
The stairs to the first floor lead to a landing which has a floor-to-ceiling bookcase and a single-glazed door leading to the spacious roof terrace, with planters and furniture. Leading off the landing are the two bedrooms, both with french doors leading to a small balcony with railings. The master bedroom has a 5' bed, ensuite shower room and very good storage with drawers and a large built-in wardrobe, while the the second bedroom has zip & link beds and a corner wardrobe. The family bathroom is also on this floor.
The pretty enclosed courtyard, with plentiful garden furniture, is a real delight of this cottage, making it a wonderful holiday home with great outdoor space in summer. The central heating and double glazing also ensure it is a welcoming and cosy cottage for short breaks and holidays throughout the winter months.

The East Anglia / Suffolk region
Looking to get away from it all? Then come and discover the beauty and tranquillity of Suffolk and Norfolk, with their old-fashioned seaside resorts, Blue Flag beaches, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, charming villages and market towns, and miles of footpaths to explore.
There are some great days out in Suffolk. The beaches can be enjoyed all year round and RSPB Minsmere and Dunwich Heath offer access to rare birdlife and acres of heathland. Southwold's iconic pier and lighthouse are a great draw and there are golf courses, sailing clubs, day cruises of the Southern Broads, walking, cycling and crabbing on offer! Suffolk is also a haven for the arts and hosts, among other events, the Aldeburgh Music Festival, and Norfolk, with its miles of stunning sandy beaches, cliff-top walks along the North Norfolk Coastal Path, the attractions of Cromer Pier, pretty seaside villages and market towns, as well as a multitude of stately homes – Blickling, Felbrigg and Holkham Hall to name just a few – will not disappoint for a self-catering holiday!
The Aldeburgh area
Aldeburgh is one of those traditional seaside towns with real charm, inspiring artists, musicians and writers, and attracting many families for the quintessential British seaside holiday each year. Miles of shingle beach, characterful fisherman's huts, sailing on the Alde estuary and Maggi Hambling's Shell sculpture commemorating Benjamin Britten, Aldeburgh really does have something for everyone.
Home to one of the best fish n' chip shops in the UK (note the queues), the pretty high street is filled with boutiques, gift shops, art galleries, cafes and restaurants. The annual Aldeburgh Festival at nearby Snape Maltings attracts some of the world's most talented musicians and there's also a championship golf course. Thorpeness, with its iconic 'House in the Clouds' and boating lake, is a walk or cycle ride along the beach.
