The East Anglia / Suffolk region
Suffolk is a lovely unspoilt part of England, easy to get to (2 hours to London) and yet retaining its olde worlde charm. The region is known for its charming fishing villages, excellent food, particularly fish and lovely unspoilt villages.
The nearby village of Thorpeness has a great boating lake where sailing boats, canoes and rowing boats can be hired by the house. Minnismere Bird Sanctuary is ten miles to the north and offers wonderful opportunities for walking and bird watching in this unspoilt coastal sanctuary.
Southwold, just voted in the top ten seaside towns in the country is 40 minutes north and well worth a visit. 'Go Ape' is about an hour an half north of the house in Thetford Forest - ideal for an active day out as long as you like heights!
The Aldeburgh area
Aldeburgh itself has excellent facilities, tennis courts, golf club with a good 9 hole course and an excellent 18 hole links course, sailing club, boating pond, cinema, summer theatre. The town is renowned for its boutiques, delicatessans and art galleries. The walks are wonderful both inland into the open marshes that surround the town and along the beach with a visit to the sculpture on the beach is a must! The area is very flat so cycling is easy and bikes can be hired in the town.
The world famous music festival hall at Snape Maltings, built by Benjamin Brittain, is within 2 miles of the town.

We were looking for a high quality, but homely property for a group of friends celebrating several ladies 5 -0 s! The moorings definitely fitted the bill. House was really spacious, clean, well fitted, comfy beds, plush bed and bathroom linens. Kitchen was fab and well stocked, great sociable dining room and lounge. So much so stayed in on the fri eve for onesies, wine and takeaway! Welcome wine v nice touch.
Perfect location for stroll to high street shops, restaurants and beach. Highly recommend Munchies cafe for breakfast or lunch - staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly and food very good quality.
Would highly recommend property for large group of friends or family.
